A word from Flint Hill Public House
The Flint Hill Public House & Country Inn combines a full-service fine dining restaurant, a traditional pub and four luxury suites in a newly renovated building that retains its historic charm while offering modern comfort and luxury. The Public House has served as a schoolhouse, a residence and as a restaurant and inn for more than 100 years. Situated on five picturesque acres in beautiful Rappahannock County, Virginia, we are an hour's drive (60 miles) west of Washington DC. Surrounded by vineyards and small shops, we are a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Good home cooked food. The brisket was tasty and tender although there was a big piece of fat on my plate. Smashed potatoes were awesome. The tequila chicken was good with just enough heat to remind you that it was Mexican food. It was supposed to ebserved over a salsa verde risotto . I saw e salsa verde but not the risotto. The corn salsa was refrigerator cold and served over the chicken so it immediately cold off he chicken.

    FHPH is a great little restaurant out in the beautiful country. The staff, to include the manager and head chef, are accommodating and extremely personable. It is about a 25 minute drive from Warrenton, VA. We have been there three times in the last three weeks! Brunch is awesome. This last visit was for Steak night. Super reasonable prices for the specials. And I like that they offer a large selction of VA wines on the wine list.

    So...this place is amazing. We went there for Sunday brunch on the way to a nearby winery. This is my second trip to Flint Hill Public House for brunch. I have enjoyed both visits. I liked what I ate both times. Reasonable prices and adequate portions. First time we sat inside and this time outside. There was a jazz player and the weather was perfect. It was a clean and bright otudoor eating area and the grounds were impeccable.

    Outdoor seating, excellent choices for brunch, you can take your dog(s) and relax while enjoying good food, good service, and excellent scenery. I would go again and would especially like to try it for dinner. Doggy menu as well. Outstanding and fun.

    So often I think that the valley is overlooked as a dining destination yet we have so many great restaurants to choose from and the Flint Hill Piblic House one of them. Highly recommend as a fine dining excursion

    the food was very good- chef came out and said hello-nice touch we didn't see the patio when we first arrived, and would have sat out back- they had entertainment- and looked like a nice set up.

    The inside dining area is beautiful and modern and we chose to eat outside, which I think was a better choice because the weather was wonderful and the garden is pretty. The food is quite good too and could hold its own with any Washington, DC downtown establishment. As an app we had the fried mozzarella, which were fried disks of cheese with Parmesan shavings, excellent. I had the catfish with lemon risotto, which was lovely with a side of lemony asparagus, add a great glass of wine and it was perfect. My partner had the chardonnay chicken, which he says was really good. The service was uneven and that may have been because of staffing. Our waitress as doubling as waitstaff and bartender when other people started showing up.

    A group of us running friends run through Flint Hill every year for the annual Fodderstack 10k. And every year when we run past "The Publuc House" we say we need to try it. I wish we hadn't waited so long! This place was fantastic! Our waitress rocked. There was so much variety to choose from. The prices were reasonable. An extensive wine list with simple pricing. The food was delicious. Beautiful setting inside and out. We will be back!

    My wife and I will be back at the Public House for a neighborhood group dinner this week. We're looking forward to it. My only criticism of the restaurant is that the entrees are often swimming in butter. We make a point of asking our server to tell the kitchen, "Easy on the butter."

    My husband and I have driven past the Flint Hill Public House many times and always commented that we should try it. Well, on Valentine's Day weekend we decided to have dinner there. The decor is modern but uninviting and cold. Our server was very pleasant but not quite attentive enough. The food was sorely lacking....the prime rib was extremely fatty and gristly and my lobster was overcooked. We were very disappointed over all.

    Good food (not exceptional, but very solid). Pleasant dining room. We always stop here for lunch when we are in wine country for the day. It is close to several excellent vineyards. The service is always friendly and the lunch prices are very reasonable. Would highly recommend it!

    We went on a Wednesday night. We were the only couple in the dining area for most of the evening so we had very personalized service. We have been here several time and absolutely love the food. We usually get more upscale entrees such as the prime rib, crab cakes, lobster or duck but this evening we were in a burger mood and got he

    The food was outstanding! The wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive without smothering. Great selection of local wines paired with dinner. The Owner and Chef each stopped by the table to check on satisfaction. Save room for the pumpkin mousse and the white chocolate key lime and pecan pies. This restaurant is a 5- star gem... You better get there before the word of mouth makes it impossible to get a reservation.
