Due to the success of the Williams Lane Dining Area in 2020, Hatboro Borough Council with the support of the Greater Hatboro Chamber of Commerce, and the Hatboro Business Community are bringing the Hatboro Hungry Hideaway back for 2021! This year, the Hungry Hideaway will be available for dining 7 days a week from May 1, 2021 to September 22, 2021.
As a result, Williams Lane will be closed to traffic from York Road to the rear entrance of Bernie’s from May 1, 2021 through September 22, 2021.
Please note, there will be no through traffic on Williams Lane between York Road and Orchard Avenue during the above-mentioned timeframes. Please make sure all parked cars are moved from Williams Lane prior to May 1, 2021 to allow Public Works to set up the dining area.
This initiative was initially created to help local businesses during COVID-19 restrictions and was a success in 2020. In order to continue helping local businesses flourish and provide residents/visitors with a unique outdoor gathering space, this dining initiative was brought back for 2021.
As in 2020, the dining area will be filled with picnic tables, greenery, lights, and more to allow patrons of the businesses to purchase takeout from their favorite restaurants and to enjoy outdoor meals.
Any restaurants who normally receive deliveries via Williams Lane are encouraged to inform delivery companies of this closure.
The Borough of Hatboro has notified police, fire, and EMS personnel of this road closure to assure they are aware in the event of an emergency.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and we hope to see everyone enjoying their favorite foods with a side of fresh air this summer!
