Lilly’s Ferry Replaces The Victoria Freehouse in Old City

The Victoria Freehouse announced last month that it would close after 11 years at 10 S. Front Street in Old City. Many fans of the beloved British pub lamented the closing as it had become a staple in the neighborhood.

It took no time for the location to change hands and transition to a new concept. Lilly’s Ferry, a Mediterranean-style restaurant, will open this Friday, March 24th, at 6 PM.

Owner Anas Hamed told Philly Grub it would be more Middle Eastern-inspired Mediterranean cuisine. He hired a chef who was previously working in Dubai and promised an “exceptional gastronomic experience” for guests. See menus below.

The restaurant is named after Hamed’s daughter Lilly and for its proximity to the Delaware River.

Lilly’s Ferry will be open daily from 11 AM to 11 PM.

More information as it becomes available.
