The Red Fox Inn & Tavern Ratings and Reviews
The Red Fox Inn is a favorite special occasion destination for our family. It was my wife's birthday; we continued our day with a brisk country drive. Lauren did a great job serving, the ambiance was great as was the food. Thanks for a excellent experience. Bill P
The food was wonderful - we each used that word for the fried green tomatoes, scallops and crab cakes.
While the food was great, it was the attentiveness of the staff that really sets this place apart. We were served expertly and felt very well card for.
A lovely experience.
Dinner at the Red Fox Inn was charming and delightful. I felt like I stepped into another world when I walked through the doors of the charming dimly lit restaurant. The ambience and the paintings on the wall told a story about the horse and hunt world that Middleburg has been known for, but the surroundings should not take anything away from the incredible food that was served. Every bite of my Cordon Bleu was delicious. I could not stop eating until it was all gone and I was still scrapping the plate. My husband ordered the melt in your mouth Short Rib, equally fantastic. We didn’t order any appetizers because the entrees were significantly large, and the warm bread basket was already filling. I was a little disappointed with the dessert. We ordered the Salted Caramel Vanilla Crunch Cake. It was good, but there was nothing impressive about the layered cake after having such an amazing entree.
Our main courses were very good, but some details were lacking, like good bread and well-carbonated tonic in our cocktails. The service and ambience were excellent, however, which made the restaurant a great place to visit.... just not necessarily for the food.
The Red Fox Tavern lives up to its reputation for great service and ambiance. Our party of four had the 3-course Holiday brunch. The selections were good and we each were pleased with our choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. We would have enjoyed a bit more elbow room around our table, which was in a corner next to a cupboard decorated with pretty porcelain dishes. The atmosphere encourages quiet conversation, but the closeness of the tables in the main dining room could present a problem if a group of diners was overly gregarious.
Good halfway meeting point for a Holiday Brunch with DC friends. Since it was a special brunch menu, I had the peanut soup (my favorite), fried green tomato Benedict and vanilla caramel cake. All were perfectly fine, but my friends raves about the skirt steak and shrimp and grits. It was a lovely setting and the service was perfect for our catch-up visit.
We went for the Christmas Eve 5 course dinner and it was definitely the best meal of my life well worth the 165 bucks a person! The food is pricey but actually really fantastic not hoity-toity weird rich people food.
The ambiance was very cozy and intimate and they never make you feel rushed or unwelcome. Very easy going but attentive and polite wait staff as well. Would highly recommend for date nights or special occasions.
We very much enjoyed the food here. Each entree/meal was stellar and the wine pairings were also quite good. Their understanding of Celiac (gluten free) needs was a little lacking, with a few mistakes (crackers came out on the plate, not being sure of corn starch was gluten free) but they were quick to fix and I did not get sick (I'm very sensitive to cross-contamination). The ambiance was stunning and my husband and I truly enjoyed our meal. On par with good meals in Aspen, Vail, Switzerland, etc.
My husband and I kicked off our Christmas vacation with dinner at the Red Fox Inn...it was wonderful, the ambiance was warm and cozy, dinner was wonderful and Bradley, our waiter, truly added to our experience. A wonderful way to spend an evening or a winter afternoon.
The Red Fox Inn and Tavern is one of our favorite places to dine for special occasions. The food has always been good, but this time, it was exceptional. You know those places that have overly attentive waiters? This is not one of them--the service was excellent, but not bothersome.
My spouse and I enjoyed a Christmas brunch at the Red Fox Inn in Middleburg, VA. With the snow falling outside it was nice and cozy inside. Their apple turnovers as a starter were so good we almost stole more from the table next to us. I had a cup of hot cider (a bit on the high price at $8). We had our own shrimp cocktail as an appetizer. My husband had the fried green tomatoes eggs Benedict, the only downside was the English muffins were a tad too crispy. I had the fish and chips which was so large I brought half home. For dessert I had the chocolate torte covered with raspberry, rich but delicious. My spouse had a Bloody Mary to cap off his meal which had a shrimp, olive and peppercorn as garnish. We recommend this place for others.
This was our first time actually having dinner at The Red Fox, and we were blown away. I had requested a table near the fireplace DONE. I had the Rockfish dish and it was OMG. We are heading back for their Christmas Eve Dinner which sounds amazing, and we cannot wait!
We stayed at Salamander Spa & Resort and went here for dinner on our first night. Service was impeccable and drinks were yummy. Menu was full of familiar comfort food but with just enough of a twist to be interesting. Food was very good but not mind blowing. I recommend the duck wontons.
Had a great experience for our anniversary. The food was great, the servers attentive, and the atmosphere was very romantic. Would definitely visit again.
We ate: shrimp and grits, peanut soup, butternut squash soup, half duck, fried chicken, and the carrot cake. The only item that we weren't especially in love with was the carrot cake- seemed like it was a thawed/premade cake
