We had a nice dinner in the upstairs area of the restaurant. Our server, Kathy, was great. She made excellent cocktails and was very friendly and helpful. Dinner was very good, not great. Overall though, a lovely little place with tons of charm.

Great restaurant. We have been here twice; both times for brunch. This is a cozy place with a fireplace and great ambiance best on cold winter days. We had the 2 course brunch and it was very tasty! Great coffee and brunch drinks. The pecan pie was amazing!

We enjoyed the atmosphere here and the staff was very attentive - but for the prices, the food was very mediocre. The duck had too much sauce (according to my husband) and the $44 filet was overdone (but we didn't find out from our child until the meal was over or we would have sent it back). My crab cake...

My wife and I visited Middleburg just after Christmas. We had dinner at the Red Fox Inn. The roaring fireplace greeting us as we were seated in an inn reminiscent of the 1800's. The waiter was very attentiveness. My wife had the salmon which was fresh and perfectly cooked. I had the rack of lamb which was terrific. The dessert... More

We visited this beautifully maintained historic inn and tavern during our stay in Middleburg. The Tavern came highly recommended by locals with the suggestion to have their signature dish - fried chicken. It did not disappoint. My husband had the fried chicken as well and enjoyed every tasty bite as much as I did. My son had the duck and... More

I have wanted to go here for 10 years and it was fun to be with friends who could share in the experience. The service was impeccable, the ambiance was worth the wait, but the food could have been better. My husband's pork chop was dry; I had the chicken cordon bleu and I found it both dry and yet...

Try to imagine an old country tavern with a crackling fireplace, candles and flowers on the table....this is the place. This property dated back to early 1700's so "it's the real deal". Warm and cozy with dark wood and stone walls. The short ribs were the best I've ever eaten and my husbands scallops were delish. We also had breakfast... More

We were promptly seated for our reservation. Wait staff attentive and helpful. Food options were more than acceptable and service just fine. My crab cake and petite steak were perfect. Not so impressed with the sides. My partners' duck was delicious. Would definitely try to return and have another excellent dining experience.
