Fox Chase Inn is a historic inn and tavern located in West Whiteland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

It was later expanded to a two-story, four bay, double entrance Georgian style building. It has a full-width front porch. The building housed an inn and tavern until 1800.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
