The Red Fox Inn & Tavern Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I have been to this establishment serveral times over the years. The food is always consistent and sourced locally. Wine list is extensive including fine selection from VA wineries. Staff is accomodating and friendly. The town of Middleburg is charming and a time capsule back to 17th/18th/19th century. Stay overnight at one of several quality inns, including the Red Foxx and spend the day visiting the interesting shops in town.
We had a delightful evening with excellent food, wine, and service. Spent the night and had a excellent breakfast the next morning with more of the same We would recommend the Red Fox Inn for a romantic get away from the hustle and bustle. We will surely go again.
We absolutely loved it and would go back with visiting family members who will be visiting from the UK in April. It was our first time there, we will definitely return. My husband is British and he loved the true feel of a British Pub atmpshere from the exposed beams, low ceiling and the beautiful fire place and fire. We had a spiked cider to start which was perfect on a cold day. Our server was knowledgable about the food and wine and offered ideas for a red to accompany our entree. Definitely a neighbourhood gem and worth a return visit.
The experience was remarkable... the history of the venue is felt throughout the restuarant is felt in everyway! It is surrounded by a quaint town. But above all the service staff was the best part of our experience! They were eager to plz, timely, and exceptionally accomidating! I will definately return soon... I especially look forward to staying in the hotel!
Perfect for history lovers and seekers of hunt country ambiance, The Red Fox Inn rarely disappoints with the "local favorites" menu or the friendly service. The stone walls, fireplaces, and cozy corners give opportunities for relaxing conversation over meals that are just creative enough to be enticing, without discouraging traditionalists. My broiled trout over cheese grits at a recent lunch was fresh and perfectly cooked, although the grits were a bit bland, and my friends thoroughly enjoyed crisp salads with apples and blue cheese. I was a little surprised that the bar was out of white zinfandel, but our waitress suggested a pleasant substitute. We shared and enjoyed a rich chocolate torte with our coffee to cap our leisurely lunch.
I don't think I've ever been as irritated with a restaurant as I was the Red Fox Inn this past Saturday. I arrived without a reservation and the hostess (a young blonde with an attitude) told me they were fully booked this evening. Let me say here that I was dressed very well and clearly have money. I walked outside and on my iPhone proceeded to book a table for two on OpenTable.com. When I re-entered the restaurant and informed her that I now have a reservation, it was clear she wanted to crawl in a hole. I'm not sure the business strategy for a restaurant to turn away customers. As we ate a marginal meal (duck and rack of lamb) in a lovely old hotel, I watched two empty tables never be filled. Please explain what they are thinking!
The food was very good and very decent portions - we all left with doggy bags. The menu has a very nice selections that should accommodate varied tastes. The food is pricey but when its this good you don't mind paying a premium. And the place has such a history!Our only complaint is that we had to wait a bit to be seated. We made a reservation for 7:15 and it probably was closer to 7:30 when we were seated. Not a big deal but when you make a reservation you expect to be seated pretty close to the time.Also would be nice if Red Fox Inn had a bar. We could have enjoyed a drink while we waited but had to head to another place to do that.But overall a very nice dining experience.
We were at the Red Fox Inn for a birthday lunch. The food was good, especially the peanut soup, which I don't eat often. Unfortunately, our server was not particularly friendly or attentive. We waited a long time for the offer of dessert, and even longer for the actual desert.
Red Fox Inn was a delightful little find in a romantic setting. The food was good overall, but the ribeye with the creamy peppercorn sauce was phenomenal. Everyone else wanted my dish. Staff was pleasant and the ambiance is great if you're looking for a quiet little get-away with deep conversation. No bar to speak of, although the wine selection is extensive. Two thumbs up on the entire inn.
We've stopped in and had lunch and dinner quite a few times. The menu offers a wide array of dishes that will suit most any appetite. The best part about the meal beyond its amazing taste is the portion you receive. I'm not sure I've ever made it all the way through to dessert finishing every course along the way. You have to pace yourself and plan on spending the evening dining and enjoying good company. This is not a place where you'll be rushed through dinner and out the door. The staff is great, the food is great, and the prices are comparable to other fine dining spots in the D.C. area.
. The staff greeted us and seated us promptly. The wine list is OK, did not have our favorites and surprisingly didn't seem to have very many locals either. We chose a medium priced white and were not disappointed. We shared a specialty salad which was very good with the exception that the arugula could've beeb trimmed better. We normally share one entree, but since this was a special occasion we each chose one tonight. We ordered scallops and surf and turf plates from the regular menu. Service time was good, 20 min. from order to service. The food was nicely plated and smelled good except the crabcake kind of overpowered the other items. The scallops were very good; tender and juicy. The filet was perfect. Sides were interesting & flavorfu
