We love The Ashby Inn, the food is Amazing but even more importantly the People make us feel so welcome. Manager Carlos took very good care of us and Chef Thomas amazed us with the sight and taste of the food Especially the Duck which I am still raving about. Stuart Brennan always knows what wine to pair with the food and our dear friend Nolan spent as much time with us as she could. We know she has other folks to look after but we wish she could sit down and join us for conversation , we adore her! Be Back Soon!!

One of the best dinning experiences my fiancé and I have had over the past year. The tasting menu is an experience not just a meal. We both agree the service and it presentation were the best in a tasting setting either of us have had.

Ashby Inn has great food and service. It is on the expensive side, but worth the price.

Impeccable wait staff and food presentation. Food courses were just right size and each course was perfectly prepared for us. Chef and server were attentive to my wife's dietary allergy and she was well pleased with her abundant choices. "Well done."

It was a rainy day so we sat inside for brunch. Always made to feel welcome here. I was happy with a split of Hillenger brut rose while we enjoyed the warm bread & honey-butter sprinkled with sea salt. When we read the menu & were intrigued by the smoked olive oil ingredient, the chef sent over a sample & more bread. We both loved our appetizers. I had the endive salad while hubby tried the Black Forest ham dish. His entrée was Shrimp & Grits (a big hit) & I chose Fish & Chips w/ smashed peas. I wish the chef would add more herbs (especially mint) to the peas for a more complex flavor. Great tartar sauce & crispy chips. My dessert was a deconstructed Crème Brulee called "Burnt Cream". Beautiful as well as delicious. Barry did not enjoy his Caramel & Chocolate Cremeaux as much. As if the chef read his mind, he sent over a bowl of Sticky Toffee Pudding ala mode. Very sweet & yummy. It sealed our resolve to skip dinner that night! We love their Cappuccino w/ rock candy on a stick (which I always take home for the grand kids). Can't wait for Spring so that we can have a table on the patio overlooking the garden. But it was lovely to sit in the parlor in front of a fire.

We've been going to the Ashby Inn for years to celebrate special occasions. This year the service was exceptional but the food did not hold up to what we were used to plus the costs have increased.

I've been a few times now to the Ashby Inn, and each time the food has been wonderful. Definitely worth the drive out to Paris, VA!

Chef Tom Whitaker, and the exceptional Ashby Inn staff, always make your visit special. The creative and delicious food is inspiring! Stuart, the Sommelier, was knowledgeable and clearly loves his work. I highly recommend the tasting menu.

I had a lovely experience at the Ashby. It has a warm and friendly atmosphere, with thoughtful and professional service. The food was remarkably delicious, with elegant wine pairings. I look forward to my next memorable visit to the Ashby Inn.

We visited the Ashby Inn 10 - 15 years ago. It was impressive then, but is still better now.

Note: No rating is given for noise level, because there were only 2 other diners on the evening we were there. We do not like a noisy place, so the level was perfect for us.

Magnificent! We had the Vegetarian tasting menu. It i perhaps the most notable menu in the greater Washington DC area, and even further, and that includes even some of the more famous 'country' inns in the Virginia horse country. Truely world class. For this menu and presentation, one could and should travel far. And the option to stay the night, at a reasonable cost, after taking the superb matched wine flight, makes this an even more compelling candidate for consideration as the finest dining experience. (Certainly this is the case for the vegetarian, I heard great things about the 'regular' tasting menu, but we did not partake.)
