We had a Stella and Dot Leader Retreat at The Salamander and popped over here for lunch! The seasonal Brussel Sprout side was probably the best I've ever had! Great drinks, atmosphere and service! Soups and Salads were also a hit with our group and the Shepard's Pie! D finitely recommend this spot if you find yourself looking for retaurant options in Middleburg!

This was not our first visit to Hunter's Head Tavern, nor will it be our last. The food and atmosphere were all we have come to expect, wonderful. Our server, Rose, was enthusiastic and helpful without being obtrusive, in a word perfect.

Cozy, charming and delectable - what more can one ask for on a frigid January day? Before we hit the door we were enchanted by the seasonal decorations on the tavern's exterior windows. We were greeted instantly by the hostess who accommodated our reservation request to be seated next to the wood burning fireplace. Since it was noon on Sunday the menu choices included brunch and lunch. After ordering at the bar, we enjoyed our hard ciders and some warm bread (crunch crust with a fluffy center - yummmm!). We split a pub salad which has a light, sweet vinaigrette dressing. The chicken pot pie was the perfect comfort food. A delicious, nicely seasoned filling served piping hot with a puff pastry topping. The eggs benedict came out with beautifully poached eggs, just the right amount of hollandaise sauce, delicious ham and size potato/veg mix. Our server was pleasant and attentive letting two old friends chatter away without feeling rushed. The poach pear was tempting but with the warm fire, that would have put us both in a coma and we didn't want to miss out on our visit to the current exhibits at the nearby National Sporting Library & Museum. It was a perfect Sunday outing!

It was another wonderful dining experience at the Hunter’s Head and the perfect spot to host a visiting family member. As always, the food was great, the service wonderful and thanks to Open Table, we had a great table waiting on our arrival.

Cozy, quiet place in horse country. Nice pub atmosphere in authentic, historic building. The seafood chowder was fantastic.

Being British, I had high hopes for this restaurant and was anticipating the menu. The service was good and attentive. My partner’s beef he said was good. But, the bubble and squeak was appalling, simply mashed potatoes and other veggies smooshed up. No no no!!! Such a simple dish to get right and it was bad! The Welsh rarebit was so so. The bread they used was lovely as a dinner bread but because it had no structure, it disappeared under the sauce and the salad, though fresh and looked nice, lacked a decent dressing. We probably would not return.
