The Washington House - Average Bucks Co. Dining

My wife and I received a gift certificate to The Washington House in Sellersville (not the one in Cape May) and ate there Saturday night.

It is a charming Victorian house dating to the 1760's and yes, where Washington supposedly stayed. Our appetizer of scallops wrapped in bacon in a horshradish sauce was pretty good. Entrees of sauteed veal ($17.95) and rack of lamb ($23.95) were average, primarily because they lacked any real interesting flavors or pizzaz. They were typically done, seeming to be prepared for an older crowd who don't necessarily want anything too different. Portions were large for the price, my rack of lamb having 8 chops. The wine list was pretty good but perhaps priced a bit high (a delicious 1998 Pedroncelli Cabernet Sauvignon, $38).

Dessert and coffee were standard fare as well. All in all it was a pleasant evening in a lovely house with a so-so meal. The total tab was about $110 (with drinks and wine being $50 of that) which the gift certificate mostly covered. Would we return? There are too many other interesting (and cheaper) places to try in the city for that!
