The heart of the Boars' Head Inn, the Old Mill Room, was built from the timbers of an abandoned gristmill along the banks of the Hardware River, which dated to 1834. The relocation of the mill was an opportunity to preserve and transform a treasured Virginia artifact. It had survived burning despite the orders of U.S. Grant and George Armstrong... More

We had reservations for lunch at the Old Mill Room for a Holiday Luncheon at work. Gorgeous decorations. Delicious Spicy Virginia Peanut Soup. The BEST lemon meringue pie that many of my friends and I have had.

I had lunch with my mother at Old Mill Room the day before Thanksgiving. Firstly, all the employees from the hostess, manager and wait staff were welcoming and pleasant.

Located at the Boar's Head Inn in Ivy, this restaurant is the place to go for a special meal or celebration. Sunday brunch is the best in Cville. You fell like you're in an elegant old English country estate. Ambiance galore. The food, though pricey, is well worth the cost. Also good for receptions and special events. Great staff.

The entrees are always excellent here. I have dined here several times and the quality of the service and and the ambient setting make this a first-tier choice for the Charlottesville area. Fall and spring are the most glorious times to walk around the pond before or after dinner.

We are new to the area and were encouraged to dine at the Boars Head Inn. It did not disappoint and truly enhanced my birthday celebration.

While visiting Charlottesville we checked with Trip Advisor to find a nice place for dinner. The Old Mill Room did not disappoint! We began our dinner with the signature peanut soup (delicious with a pumpkin base and a hint of spice). My husband had the lobster bisque..also delicious. We both chose scallops with fresh asparagus and red peppers sautéed in... More
