General Information






Hyeholde is owned and operated by Barbara K.S. McKenna, daughter of the original builders and owners.

Hyeholde was built as a home and a restaurant in the 1930s by William and Clara Kryskill from several magnificent old barns.  It sits today on 4 acres of gardens and winding stone paths.  Inside, great waxed beams, slate floors, stained glass windows, tapestries and crackling fireplaces create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The food is  American inspired with a French education and our chefs take advantage of the bounty produced by numerous local farms.  The menus usually change seasonally and some ingredients are grown right on the property.  A beehive is our latest addition.

A full selection of alcoholic beverages is available along with a superb wine list with a variety of prices.  Reservations are suggested but walk-ins are welcome too.









Born and raised in a suburb of Philadelphia, Brent Peyton started cooking at the Desmond Hotel, fell in love with the craft and continued throughout high school.  From there he attended the culinary institute of America graduating in 2008.  Upon graduation Brent worked at the world renowned restaurant, Charlie Trotter’s, in Chicago, and was part of the opening team for Restaurant Charlie in Las Vegas.  In 2010 he moved on to work in the two star Michelin Guide restaurant, Guy Savoy in Caesar's Palace.  He worked with the best ingredients in the world meanwhile approaching them with classic and modern techniques.  After five years in Las Vegas, Brent moved back to the Philadelphia area as the opening Sous Chef at Junto restaurant outside Philadelphia.  In June 2015 we where delighted to have Brent accept our offer to head Hyeholde’s kitchen, where his philosophy is to create a memorable experience by showcasing excellence through wonderful ingredients,  technique and a great team!








Come for dinner and meet Deborah Goydich, our dining room manager.  Her knowledge of our industry is varied and deep.  She began as a chef at Le Pommier and after several sous chef positions, transferred to managing the “front of the house” (restaurant jargon for the dining rooms), most recently at Andora Restaurant.  Her considerable knowledge of wines has led to a much needed revamping of Hyeholde’s wine cellar which has in turn led to more value for our customers and a more balanced selection on our wine list.  She heads an exceptionally caring and knowledgeable waitstaff.








Bonnie McQuown recently came to Hyeholde from Columbus,  OH.  While helping a co-worker plan her wedding six years ago, she fell in love with the industry and decided to pursue a degree in hotel, tourism and event management.  As a wedding planner at Columbus Bride and Groom she has had the opportunity to learn from the “best in the business and gained knowledge in all aspects of the hospitality industry.  Bonnie has planned and coordinated hundreds of weddings, corporate events, large bridal shows, smaller parties and business open houses.  She believes the key to success is to not only have a passion for what you do but to constantly educate yourself and listen to what a client’s needs and wants are.

The Round Room

The Round Room, Hyeholde’s  private dining facility, was built as a home in 1952, redesigned as a cabaret in 1986 and then as a  private dining venue in 1991.

The same high quality of food and service prevail in this stone and glass sanctuary nestled into the hillside surrounded by trees and gardens.

It has become the choice for weddings, corporate events and other group functions for  25 - 110 people.

The Round Room is Internet and wifi-wired and we offer faxing and photocopying at an additional price.
