Dinner was excellent as was the service. Had some oysters on the half shell and the lamb as an entree were great. This place really does remind you of an authentic English country pub. Atmosphere is great even if just to come in for a pint or two.

We visited recently for one night and really enjoyed it! Beautiful setting for a charmingly rustic cottage, which we were upgraded to free of charge due to a plumbing problem with our booked room. Very comfy bed and sofa with a jacuzzi and private porch made for a romantic setting. Only drawback was a seemingly sluggish power outlet that took... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the live entertainment - loved the music and the singer was very good. The food was also quite tasty - lamb chops were a little too done (we like medium rare but tender and delicious. Also, had rock fish which also delicious. Can't say enough about the bread - we all raved about it! Thoroughly... More

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat and a drink on a cool afternoon. The staff in the Pub were very friendly and the food was very good. It's worth a visit. The restaurant looks great if you are looking for a fancy place for dinner.

My husband & I ate here in 2013 & it was fantastic, so this was an obvious choice, as we were passing through on our way to Middleburg, VA. The pub was crowded, but we managed to snag a table, just as those folks were leaving. We sat down & waited patiently for someone to come by to bus the... More

I am so sorry to hear that there was a fire. No wonder you've been closed so long! This restaurant is my favorite date night place with my guy. Great beer, great food, great atmosphere, great music, and wonderful, friendly service. I love this place and I call every few weeks to see if they're open yet. When I found... More

Stopped in for a pint. Nice pub! I will be back. We were waiting for the rest of our party for a camping weekend at Sky Meadows State Park, three miles to the west. Very authentic pub.

We made an unexpected trip to the country and wanted dinner before heading back. I called ahead to make sure they could seat us. The staff was super courteous from the first phone call welcoming us to come for dinner, to the attentive and polite waiter. We had the scallops to start,I had the rib eye and my partner had...
