Hunter's Head Tavern
Worth the drive!This is my new favorite lunch spot and totally worth the drive from DC. The food is extraordinarily good and ultra-local (most is grown/raised on the farm). I am a person that likes to stick with what she knows is good and it's saying a lot that I've never had the same thing twice here! There aren't enough superlatives to describe this gem and I'm already looking forward to going back soon!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBritish Pub in VirginiaA delightful real British pub in the middle of rural Virginia. Good draft beer selection, reasonably priced pub food and
one of the best strawberry shortcakes that I have ever had.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome, as always.Awesome, as always. This was my 8th trip & they've haven't missed yet. The chocolate-orange french toast was amazing.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery scenic outdoor patioVery scenic outdoor patio is great for dining in the warmer months. It was late spring on our visit and a beautiful day. Excellent beer selection on tap. As a group of seven we had quite a variety of dishes (unique salads, shephards pie, to fish & chips) and every thing was very tasty. The staff was friendly and attentive. We are looking forward to returning to try the dinner menu. Great rustic feel to the interior but everything is well maintained. As the interior tables are tend to be older farm house kitchen type tables it is a little tricky for parties larger then 5 to be seated together. We split into a group of 4 and a group of 3 but we were seated right next to each other. The patio does have a few larger tables.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Hunter's Head presentsThe Hunter's Head presents good, wholesome food prepared well.
While its attempt to emulate an English pub may be off putting for some, those of us with experience of pubs throughout
the English-speaking world found the experience charming.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbiance is great. Food isAmbiance is great. Food is average.

Love the local and organic choices.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMUpon recommendations by friends,Upon recommendations by friends, and intrigued by its appearance, we had tried for over two years to eat at this restaurant, but due to scheduling and snowstorms, it didn't happen until my husband's birthday in late March. We were not disappointed at all! In fact, this was one of the best dining experiences we have had: low-key, cozy, intimate, friendly (no haughty attitudes here), and superior food. The bread was warm, crusty, and velvety inside. The fish and chips were among the best we've had, including Maritime Canada. The veal ragout and veggies had exquisite flavor. A wine list was not pushed on us; it was posted if we cared to order. We loved everything about it!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet on the day we visitedQuiet on the day we visited though it got busier later. Very enjoyable experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA Hunt Country GemThis local organic, farm-to-table restaurant is a favorite of ours. Roaring fire in winter, busy outdoor garden during summer months, and excellent food always. The pub menu is consistent with reasonably-priced favorites. Dinner and lunch choices change daily and are fresh, healthy and innovative. The atmosphere is stylishly informal and convivial with locals and Washingtonians mixing on weekends. A gorgeous drive to this part of Virginia hunt country is worth the trip.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed and alwaysNever disappointed and always look forward to going there. Our group had the liver and onions - so tender, delicious gravy and good selection of steamed veggies. Another one of us had the shephard's pie - yummy, comfort food. All of us had the sticky toffee pudding with hot custard; wonderful way to end the meal.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMbeing my first time at Hunter'sbeing my first time at Hunter's Head I wasn't sure how to go about ordering dinner when I arrived. I was quickly directed to my waiting table, then on to the window in which you place your order. Even with all this help I still seated myself again without waiting for the drinks I'd just ordered. The bartender happily delivered them to out table with a smile on his face.
Thank you, next time I'll save room for dessert!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy eating atWe always enjoy eating at Hunter's Head. The food is alwasy fresh and good and we love the atmosphere. We will return. The Chicken Pot Pie is the best I have ever had.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
