Table for 12 upstairs dining in private room was amazing. Quiet with no loud music and a single awesome server. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
This is in historic Upperville Va in a late 1700’s home.
Consistently a hit and worth the drive from D.C. Couple the reservation with an outing to one of the wineries, distilleries, or breweries in the area.
Always a great spot overall - just don’t get seated in the bar area next to the door, unless you want patrons waiting to check-in backing into you as you are trying to eat.
Building is charming, as is the "go to the bar to order" service style. However, the food is often bland (no seasoning in the burgers) and there can be challenges finding parking.
If you like historic places and the traditional pub feel, this is a must to dine at! Brings you back in time for sure. Lived in England for 2 years and felt like I had been transported back there.
Nice ambiance in old colonial tavern. Food is always good, but not necessarily great. There aren't a lot of dining options for dinner in Middleburg/Upperville area, and this is definitely one of the better options. Service is solid, and it is good for larger groups (8+ persons).
I have been to Hunter's Head many, many times. It has always been one of my favorite restaurants. But our last visit was far from stellar. First of all, it was for a birthday celebration and the table we reserved had been given away. We actually had to ask for bread for the table. And our empty glasses sat on the table for about 30 minutes as waitresses walked by and ignored them. I was very disappointed in the evening.
Great salad and burgers but very noisy at lunch. The service was very good and staff very nice and friendly.
We hadn't been to the Hunters Head for quite some time, so it was a nice change of pace. The small room we were in was quite lovely, and the food and wine were excellent, but sadly our experience was marred by the group next to us. Fifteen or so lovely young ladies, all dressed for a formal of some sort, sat at a table next to us. That was fine, but when they began getting louder and louder and actually beat-boxing at the table until we could no longer converse with our friends, as the chaperones just sat and watched, it definitely had an impact on our experience, as well as the other tables in the room. Next time, I will simply remember not to accept a seating with a table set ofr 20 right next to it! :-) Since that is not an everyday occurance, I would definitely recommend the Hunters Head for a lovely evening out with friends and family.
This was my second visit, and I took visiting family. Everybody loved it! The food was delicious, and the building is just a treasure to enjoy. We'll be back again for sure!
We have been here several times and love the rustic, ambience. Excellent food!
Got the Sausage Sampler for Sunday Brunch and their Sweet Potato biscuit on the side... was SO GOOD! Been dreaming about that meal since we left! The food is always so comforting )
Basically good. Salmon fillet over cooked. Smoked trout served cold vs room temp therefore smoke flavor came through very little.
Wonderful time as always!
Beautiful outdoor seating area. Excellent selection of beers on tap. Good combination of entrees and pub fare.
We love this place normally. This time, we felt more rushed to eat and leave by the staff than ever. Apps came out within minutes. Entrees came while we were eating apps. They were clearing plates before we were finished. Kept asking us if we wanted the check. We just wanted a relaxing family dinner. I’ll definitely go back because the food and ambiance is fantastic. But the staff this night was not on their game.
I loved the feel of this place. Although it was our first visit it felt like home. The food was fun and there were many items to choose friend. The staff were super friendly and very very helpful. Everyone seemed knowledgeable about the restaurant and the menu. Visit this place soon!!!
Excellent all around place. Menu selection is quite extensive and so are their drinks at the bar.
We went to Hunter's Head Tavern to celebrate a friend's birthday in a relaxed, cozy environment that brings you back in time. I have been there before, which is why I returned. I love the pub experience with thick wooden tables, a fire place, ordering our food at the bar, having wonderful selections of both traditional pub grub and more sophisticated dishes made with attention to fresh, local ingredients. The lemon cheesecake with fresh berry coulis was divine! The wait staff is very professional and attentive, the environment is friendly and convivial and they have outdoor seating on their patio. I will keep returning to Hunter's Head Tavern.
Great ambiance. Good food but small portions and some items had no seasoning whatsoever. Service left something to be desired.
Genuinely old and charmingly appointed rooms, beautiful walled garden for outdoor dining, superb cuisine consisting of updated and expanded pub fare, friendly, attentive service. Harp beer on tap! Set in the gorgeous Virginia countryside within an hour of the metropolis.
Beautiful Tavern in picturesque setting
Great service (Jackson shout out) and friendly staff
We will be back - 90 minute drive through lovely countryside
The staff was rude, unhelpful, and the ordering process is very odd. There are much places to go in the Middleburg area with better service. It was a big disappointment.
Over priced, under seasoned food that you have to stand in line to order. If you want to stand in line, go to McDonald’s.
A group of friends toured England a couple of years ago and when I read a nice review of your restaurant I called 4 of my friends who live in the area about going and we knew it would be fun to experience the English atmosphere and the sticky toffee pudding! It brought back memories that we shared at lunch. Food was excellent, service was great even tho they were very busy.
Hostess was rude when seating and taking order. Food and waitstaff were great.
The summer menu featuring heirloom tomatoes was delicious.
Great service and wonderful food. Glad to see more vegetarian dishes on the menu. We sat on the patio, lovely ambiance and not noisy.
We had a lovely time as always. The food is always amazing. Best chicken pot pie ever and desserts are awesome! We loved the outside seating and it is a beautiful setting when the weather is nice like it was Thursday night!
The food was great and the service outstanding. It was a wonderful experience for a friend's birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Our group of friends get together every month for a meal. We often meet at Hunter’s Head because of the great food.
Great horse-country atmosphere combine with locally sourced comfort food.
Great old place, nice ambience and good food. Great setting for friends or romantic dinner.
Service was good. Most of food was good except for my Dry Aged Ribeye ($36) which was tough, so tough that I, at first, thought the steak knife was dull. I should have sent it back but didn't want to delay the festivities while waiting for another steak. For quite a number of years I've been very pleased with the Dry Aged Ribeye but this year was a disappointment. Without mentioning my displeasure with the steak, the restaurant didn't charge us for the 4 deserts we ordered, which was classy. I will continue to return to Hunters Head, but may order the pub fare as everybody really enjoyed it. I recommend this restaurant to all people interested in good food, wine and beer.
Maybe it was a bad day, been here before and food has been much better. Was not impressed with the pork chop. Also sit outside during the summer. Restaurant was hot and muggy.
The best. A lot of history. Should be listed in AAA.
The chopped kale was woody to the point of non-chewable. All other food was good.
Hunter's Head never disappoints! The ambience and service was great, and the food was yummy!
I have eaten here twice for lunch. I find the food perfectly fine and the service is adequate after you get accustomed to placing your order as you enter from the menu board. It's not that this is all that unusual in a fast food restaurant but it is unexpected in an upscale location and it makes it extremely difficult to introduce newbies to the menu board without causing a people jam of sorts.
If you come here for the first time definitely look over the website and make sure your guests look it over when possible.
Flies: They were everywhere inside. It was very distracting and seemed as if they take this for granted.
Patio: Charming in nice weather. Definitely bring deep woods off.
Lunch with no cocktails and two desserts equaled about $85 with tip.
Brunch with the family on Sunday. I made a reservation for 4 but we had 6. They were gracious to accommodate. Had the Blueberry pancakes, side of breakfast sausage and a sweet potato biscuit. All the food was top notch, but only came with two pancakes, so slightly disappointing. Biscuit was tasty as was the sausage. Home fries were also served, they were fine. Nothing too exciting about that.
Would recommend to others.
