A very nice gourmet lunch in a nice bright dining room with a view across courtyard and nearby rooftops. Busy but not noisy, attentive service never rushed. Good value for money.

My husband and I stopped by The French Hound for a late lunch. Both the brunch and regular menus were available. I got the pizza with crumbled blue cheese, apple and bacon, and my husband got the steak and frites. We were both pleased with our choices. His steak came with a delicious and generous pad of herb butter. I... More

A nice place to eat some French inspired cuisine. Their menu might look good, but I mainly went for the special that were available that evening. It all tasted delicious!

It is a family run restaurant with great ambience (in an old home), with attentive and friendly service. I had house made, spicy lamb sausage sandwhich which came on grilled crusty bread with...

This is a lovely French restaurant in Middleburg. Our group had the marinated skirt steak, the Risotto au Hommard (with lobster) and the salmon for the main course. All were deemed excellent. The special soup was butternut squash soup which arrived at the table with swirls of Crème fraîche on the top - the presentation was beautiful and the soup... More

Went with friends night before races. Excellent service in beautiful old house. Good wine list, drink menu. Little disappointed in Caesar salad, but really only thing off.

One block off Middleburg's main road is The French Hound, a wonderful French-bistro themed restaurant with local fresh farm foods prepared with innovation that are guaranteed to tease, and please, your palate. Set in a 17th century country home, with rooms mirroring a manor in Provence, we lunched on Pistou de Roquette et Amandes: fresh pasta mixed with almond pesto,... More

We had a very enjoyable anniversary dinner with The French Hound. The food and service was very good! Loved the local wine! wish they offered more. The portions were very generous. Surprising for a "French" restaurant. The mussels are a must. The lamb sausage and the salmon dishes were well prepared.
