Saturday in Lambertville and New Hope

Spent Saturday with R down in Lambertville and New Hope. Had lunch at:

Triumph Brewing Company: A really sharp restaurant. Nice, big space with indoor dining room(s), outdoor seating overlooking the train tracks, and a big bar area. Beers were great. The Kolsch was outstanding, as was the Jewish Rye. Too bad they didn't have the Kellerbier on tap. The food was great too. Smoked mozz sticks and a burger for me and a salad and sandwich for R. Only problem was that we ate to the point of almost having to be rolled out of the place.

After lunch we had a look around some of the many antiques shops in the immediate area. Then later took a walk to:

The Swan Hotel: This is one of our favorite places. Just a great relaxing setting. Big leather couches and a big window looking out on the patio. We always have a nice time here. So what if the drink menu leaves a lot to be desired. I had a Fuller's ESB. Leave me alone.

One of these days we'll get around to dining at the Swan. Or I guess it's actually Anton's at the Swan? Is this place an actual hotel? Or is it a restaurant in a former hotel? If anyone knows what's actually going on here, clue me in.
