Exton getting a Pour House

Its bar top comes from a duke's estate.

Exton getting a Pour House

You hear (probably too often) of "farm to table," whereupon chefs brag of the provenance of the grub they cook with.

The new Pour House in Exton - opening Monday, June 10 at 116 N. Pottstown Pike, in the former Cheeseburger in Paradise - can throw around the term "tree to bar."

As in, the bar top.

It was milled from a 60-inch-diameter English chestnut tree that had blown over in 2009 on the estate of the Duke of Northumberland in England, as the restaurant proudly notes in a plaque next to a photo of Alnwick Castle.

The rest of the decor includes lots of reclaimed wood.

Menu is similar to the Westmont, N.J., location's.
