Hunter's Head Tavern
Love this Tavern!This is our second trip to Hunter's Head. We love the drive out to Upperville and the atmosphere at Hunter's Head is so relaxing. The patio dining is comfortable and the menu is well rounded. This is a truly enjoyable spot.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM2d time there, a good as the 1stCountry charm, organic menu, great salad, in the heart of horse country, unique find and experience. Serving real food not your average fare at reasonable prices. Outside dining on the terrace.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMgood but better beforeI go to Hunter's Head at least once a year, primarily for my birthday and went more regularly when they first opened. Although the food was good, not as great as in the past. Portions are smaller for one. My sister had the spinach salad with strawberries and grilled chicken recently at a generic restaurant and she thought it was superior to the one at HH.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood lunch on a beautiful day!Two of us had lunch outside on a beautiful June day. There is a relaxed casual feel about the place, and there were umbrellas to protect us from the warming sun. The service was good and the beer was excellent.
My spinach was a bit sparse and un imaginative, but my date's Cobb salad was excellent in all respects.
We liked the fact that it was dog friendly.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter a suggestion from aAfter a suggestion from a friend we made sure to include this as one of our stops. Glad we did. What a great way to get a taste of Upperville while experiencing fresh food and a great selection. Loved the outdoor patio and we were lucky enough to have great weather.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasant experienceWell worth the drive to Upperville. Large, shaded patio seating and comfortable inside seating in a great old home.
One person had a splendid Shepherd's Pie, which was loaded with meat and a savory gravy. Another had a large wedge salad and the fried calamarie app for dinner. The salad was crisp and green, with ample dressing. The pub Burger was large and juicy. And my fish & chips were perfect.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic brunch on the patioFantastic brunch on the patio of this lovely, English style pub. I had a delicious cheese platter with wonderful fresh baked bread and crackers. My friend had the white pizza. Great food, fantastic service, and a lovely view of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. The food is locally grown and best of all, dogs are welcomed on the patio.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a gemMy husband and I took a Memorial Day motorcycle ride out to the Hunter's Head Tavern and we were very happy with our choice. They have a wonderful stone patio out back where we sat. They ask you to order inside at the bar, then take your drinks to a table. We were served yummy homemade bread while we waited for our Bangers and Mash. The patio was full of colorful families, a few in colonial garb, couples and friends. It was very pretty, peaceful and the food was excellent.
Also of note was several Virginia wines on the wine list, I love supporting our local wineries. We will definitely be back. The food was English pub food with lots of other choices we didn't have time to try.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was great as was service.food was great as was service. unfortunately we were seated near a table with a loudmouthed blowhard.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Real GemExcellent establishment for Lunch. A little pricey if you ask me but the food and the good times are worth it. The wife and I will god back without doubt. I am actually looking forward to it. Would definitely recommend to anyone.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMHunter's Head rock solid!Mac n' cheese is divine.
Love the beer selection...feels like you're in Europe.
Atmosphere is gorgeous outside and homey/cozy inside.
Rock solid restaurant in all categories...ambiance, service and food quality/selection.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYum yum gimme someThis place has the best bread in the world. They have fantastic food with an ever changing specials list. They have one of the best chicken pot pies I've ever had. The staff is great. They even allow dogs to eat with you on the patio. The place has the charm I wish I had in my own house and it makes me want to go back to scotland. I've never been disappointed by Hunters head and it's why I drive an hour to eat there twice a month at least.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is As Fresh as it GetsA true farm to fork restaurant, that isnt a pretenious bistro. The food just tastes really good; like real food. Dont leave here without having dessert! Theya re all incredible, and some are gluten free.
I'd prefer to have real table service, instead of ordering at the bar. The place is to small for this layout, and it causes major traffic flow problems when they are busy. Everyone stands in the middle of the restaurant staring at the boards or waiting in line. It makes it impossible to move around.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my FavoritesGreat atmosphere, beautiful area and you may get lucky and see the Hessians !5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth 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 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at the restaurant and it's a great place to eat while browsing the shops in Middleburg and Upperville. It wasn't warm enough to sit outside, but it looks like a great place for al fresco dining in the spring and fall. Very good food in a wonderful atmosphere.12/18/2012 12:00:00 AM
