Levittown’s Newportville Inn serves up some of Germany’s best cuisine, and over 12 types of Germany’s best beer. Described as ‘American Food with a German Accent,’ The Newportville in has been serving Bucks County and beyond for 38 years.

In 1981, Art Ridge purchased one of the 10 oldest buildings in Bucks County, dating back to the 18th century.

Now, the Newportville Inn operates as one of the most authentic German pubs in the area.
“It’s a little bit of Germany in your own backyard,” said manager Brad Baker. “Everyone’s
coming in to have a good time.”

While the Newportville Inn is renowned for their beer, they also serve up authentic German
food, which includes the schnitzel of the day, German meatballs, and an 18 foot pretzel. Edith Boreck is Newportville’s head chef, and she uses her German background to influence the dishes they serve.

The Newportville Inn hosts a 6 week long Octoberfest, which features authentic German music, select German beers, pig roasts, games, and other activities. This year’s Octoberfest at Newportville begins Saturday, Sept. 21. They also work within the community, and partner with the Fiaria Project, a non-profit Bucks County organization focused on helping foster children transition into their new homes.

The Newportville Inn hosts several events a year, and donates goods and money to the Fiaria Project.
