Roots in East Norriton has been purchased by part of the ownership of Glenside’s Union Jack’s. There is currently a pending liquor license transfer in the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Bureau’s database for the address on West Germantown Pike and we confirmed the sale with Union Jack’s Andrew Steigelmann. The space that is currently Roots will become a second location of Union Jack’s.
If you are not familiar with Union Jack’s in Glenside, it bills itself as “Home to the Worlds Best Wings…. and beer geek heaven!” It is also a sports bar and popular with soccer fans.
The menu is built around British and Irish dishes like battered fish & chips, bangers & mash, shepherds pie specials. There are also homemade soups, hand made burgers and salads. Union Jack’s is also planning to keep some of Roots most popular menu items.
Steigelmann shared, “We plan on making it a great neighborhood destination that families can keep coming to with their children after sports, etc.”
Prior to being Roots, the space was a location of Conshocken-based Guppy’s Good Times.
Please note that Roots is still open. Steigelmann did not offer a definitive date on when Union Jack’s will take over.
