The Manor House Restaurant
The Chef Continues to PleaseWe had eaten the previous night at The Manor House Restaurant at the Inn at Poplar Springs and were so pleased we returned tonight. In addition to the delicious food and the focus on local and organic, the little surprises the chef provides are delightful! As we had done the day before, we went to the lounge in the afternoon for wine and the chef's small temptations: savory and sweet. The small bites continued when we went to the restaurant, again at a great window table. The chef sent out a tempting morsel before the first course of the prix fixe menu (we chose 3 courses, which the staff let us split; there are 4 and 5 course options, too). Then in between courses, the chef provided a palate-cleansing bite. Out of room, but wow!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPeace in the CountryThe Manor House Restaurant at The Inn at Poplar Springs surprised us in many ways. We started the experience in the late afternoon with a glass of wine and three complimentary temptations from the chef. Temptations are small bites, and we had one savory, one salmon, and one taste of dessert...just right for a small snack. Then, since we are early diners, we found ourselves nearly alone in the restaurant at 6 pm and scored the best window table looking out across the beautifully manicured grounds of Poplar Springs. The food was incredible! The prix fixe menu offers a choice of 3, 4, or 5 courses, and the staff let us split our choices to share. I'm out of room to rave more, but the chef's extras during the meal made the experience wow!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlot of Food!First time at manor house and I was definitley impressed. We both opted for the 5 course meal and we were filled to the brim by the time we left. This is the first time I ever eaten at a resturant of this caliber and left full, usually you leave still hungry. That is not the case here. The priceing is competitive for this style of resturant. The ingredients are fresh and presentation is thoughtful and the service was profesional but not stuffy. We will definitley come again!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMout of the way, but worth itCreative menu, and everything we tried was great. A few lighter options would be a great addition.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden gemQuite the find in rural Virginia. We have lived 30 minutes away from this wonderful restaurant for over a decade and didn't realize it until I found it as an option for Mother's Day Brunch by searching for a nice restaurant with availability through OpenTable. After the great food, service, and ambience, this will now be one of our regular selections for fine dining.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMManor HouseA beautiful gem in Virginia; GREAT service, decent prices but the food was delicious.
