Amazing food and atmosphere. If you’re able to sit on the rooftop, I highly recommend it. So beautiful!

I treated a friend to lunch and was a little disappointed there was no room to sit outside. That said, the food and service was impeccable.

Everything was good, but the amount of food was substantially less from what we ordered last time.

However, I might add that the price remained the same as our previous time.

We ordered the biscuit bowl for $10.00 and it contained 4 biscuits. Previously, it was at least 6-8 biscuits including scones and other pastries.

We also ordered the bacon platter for $7.00 and it contained 5 slices of bacon. Previously, it was at least 10 slices.

Next time, we'll skip those items, since we felt like we got gypped.

My husband and I visited the Tavern for brunch outside on Saturday and Sunday. We joined some friend on Saturday and everything was perfect! We liked it so much, we back on Sunday and brought our dog.

Sunday left much to be desired. We both ordered eggs benedict medium; my husband said I don't like the whites of the eggs runny. When we received the benedict, the eggs were hard inside. I mentioned this to the waiter and he stated that the gentleman said he didn't want it runny which is not what my husband said--he said "he didn't like the WHITES runny." In addition, we were not offered a second basket of pastries on Sunday.

While I'm certain the waiter was usually very good--he was very polite and business-like, I was disappointed with my meal because the waiter misunderstood what we wanted. He did offer to replace the eggs, we declined as we ate them as they were and he took my iced tea off the bill.

I've never had eggs benedict with hard egss in my life!

Was able to reserve a table last minute when family came to town unexpectedly. We all had such a wonderful time and our guests continued to rave well after we were home.The drive out through the bucolic countryside was a great prelude to our arrival. Our server, was filled with Red Fox Inn history and that delighted our family. The food was excellent! We had the halibut special, the rack of lamb (which they kindly split for 2 of us since it was a huge portion), and the gnocchi. The appetizer of chilled heirloom tomato soup was like you had pulled the tomatoes straight from the vines! It was so fresh!! All in all it was a delightful evening and we will certainly return!

The Red Fox Inn is a beautiful restaurant. We like the food but feel it’s overpriced for what you get. We go there on special occasions because it’s gorgeous in Middleburg, but we may try other restaurants when we visit the town again. The service was wonderful.

Great experience. Wonderful old charm and spot on food. Only issue was the flies inside. It took away from the experience having flies buzzing around while eating.

We had a wonderful meal outside on the patio. It was Restaurant Week and we loved the special menu. Wonderful fried green tomatoes and a large fried chicken platter with Mac and cheese and shaved Brussels sprouts. Our waiter was also the bartender and he was fantastic and pleasant. Can’t wait to go back for another date night.

We are not "objective" in any way when it comes to the Red Fox Inn! Numerous visits to this outstanding establishment have been a pleasure---and we have dined there as a couple, with family, and with friends for nearly forty years: the food is always superb with a wait staff that could not be more attentive! In short, the Red Fox Inn is a true gem for an escape--be that for lunch or for dinner.

Food was over priced for the quality and creativity. Service was average. For a $40-$50 entree I expect excellent and all our meals were good, but not superior. Love the setting and will stick to lunch here unless they’ve inflated their lunch prices, too.

Excellent food, excellent service. Steak was clearly top-end Prime. It was expensive, however, so won't be a frequent choice.

This is the second time in the last year that we have had the opportunity to eat at this restaurant and both times we were very happy with the experience. The food and service were both outstanding. This time we also stayed overnight at the Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Whenever we are able to pass through Middleburg in the future we will definitely plan on eating at this restaurant.
