Sandy Hill Tavern is a historic inn and tavern located in West Caln Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1805-1806, and is a two-story, brick structure measuring 30 feet by 30 feet with Georgian / Federal design elements. It is four bays by two bays and has a one-story shed roof porch. It was built expressly as a tavern, but never functioned as such because a license could not be obtained by its owner.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
