The Bulls Head Public House is an authentic British pub offering a tasty experience. The wooden decor gives the place an intimate feeling and recreates the atmosphere of old European bars. Plus, the menu has a wide selection of beers, making Bulls Head the best beer bar in Pennsylvania. Our personal favorite is the Young Chocolate Stout. Its unique flavor is something you do not want to miss! If you’re hungry, enjoy a delicious English eggs and sausage plate in a warm and friendly setting.

Dosie Dough Bakery is part coffee shop, part bakery and part cafe! The ingredients are fresh and the menu is all homemade. You’ll feel right at home in this cozy eclected setting. Make sure you try their European-style breads, or if you prefer, the Bagels are to die for. Be sure to try the Roasted Veggie Wrap which is as healthy as it is delicious.
Tied House is an offshoot of St. Boniface Brewing Company in Ephrata. The restaurant’s name is derived from the British term, where a “tied house” is a “pub that is owned by a particular beer company and only sells that company’s products.” This place offers a unique libation-focused dining experience: hip space, fantastic drinks and imaginative food, all served up by friendly servers & bartenders. Try the House Made Hot Pastrami Sandwich for a real treat!
Appalachian Brewing Company is a local chain with six locations in Central Pennsylvania. Their Lititz location is just a block off Main Street in a cool renovated warehouse building. In addition to brewing up their own collection of craft beers, they also make unique locally crafted sodas as well. The menu spans the scope of typical pub food, all freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. We highly recommend the Mile High Meatloaf, but if you’re looking for something on the lighter side, the Rockfish Tacos are delish!
Blackworth is a hip restaurant located on the first floor of the Wilbur Hotel in downtown Lititz. They serve a seasonal menu that changes four times a year. The vibe here is “rustic but refined”. Our current favorite menu item is the Mangalista Pork Steak (considered the “Kobe Beef of Pork”) with Rosemary French Fries and Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
Rooster Street Butcher has three locations in the Lancaster PA area. The Lititz restaurant & bar produces quality and healthy meat products that locals LOVE. They have incredibly high standards for the animals they butcher and the ingredients that go into everything they make. Therefore you won’t find any chemicals, fillers, binders, or JUNK in anything they serve! We suggest starting with the Crispy Cauliflower & then have the Rooster Sandwich.
Per Diem is located in the Rock Lititz Hotel just outside of downtown Lititz. They cook up fresh ingredients sourced from regional farms, foragers & producers. Rock Lititz is a unique space is where roadies and rock stars themselves stay when they’re working on staging their big concert tours. So look around the dining room while you’re there, you could spot someone famous!
The White Swan Restaurant is located in the oldest building in Rothsville, built in 1790! It’s a local pub/restaurant with traditional American cuisine served up for lunch on weekends and dinner 5 days a week (closed Monday and Tuesday). You can choose to dine at the custom wrap-around bar, dining room or in the outdoor patio.
If you’re a fan of hidden gems, then you should definitely check out the Brunnerville Hotel! They’re open 7 days a week for dinner and serve lunch on weekends (Friday – Sunday). Set in an unassuming building on a backroad in Lititz, the staff serves guests unexpectedly delicious food. Sit at the bar with the locals, choose a table in the dining room, or when the weather cooperates they have a terrific patio as well. Check the Brunnerville Hotel facebook page for Specials. Our last time there it was TO DIE FOR Lobster Rolls!!
