The Blackthorne is back in action, following break for renovation. We had a great evening of pub fare including pheasant pate and drinks at the Wolfe Tone on Saturday. Live music and a lively crowd made for a fun time with friends. Glad our favorite watering hole in Horse Country is open anew.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner though it was pricy. We sat in the room with the fireplace roaring, making it cozy on a cold winter's night. I ordered the wedge salad which was served crisp with a delicious dressing. My husband selected the night's special of scallops and I had what seemed to be the world's largest pork chop. Both...

Went for a birthday dinner and had a nice meal. Scallops for me and a pork chop that looked like it came from a dinosaur for my wife. Our waiter sadly was new which made our service a little touch and go. The fella that was tending the service bar was a hoot. He saved the night with his wit... More

My wife and I had a lovely experience at the Blackthorne Inn and Restaurant on New Years Eve for dinner. We have been coming to the Pub on weekends for several years while our for our Sunday drives, but other than Pub fare, we never had eaten dinner in the dining room. First, it is a very nice atmosphere -... More

I had the occasion to stay here this past weekend in a room which is what I'm really reviewing. The pub is very charming but I'm not talking about that. Just the room itself. I'm generally not a negative person. I have mostly positive reviews throughout tripadvisor. Let me just share this experience. First, if you are going for RUSTIC,... More

I attended an intimate wedding at this lovely small historical venue. From the moment I stepped into the office, I felt genuinely welcomed by Sharon the owner, who also is the property manager, catering manager, etc. I checked in rather late, the rest of my party was about 45 minutes behind me and since the restaurant was closing before their...

Where to start? The setting is the highlight. But you must look, not touch. The small lake comes equipped with poisonous snakes; the rooms, with stink bugs. Regarding the first floor cabin, you will hear every step from the room above, as well as other activities (sorry). The maids failed to empty the trash or vacuum the room. The same... More

We stayed in the largest cabin for our 45th anniversary. The room was rustic and had a fireplace but the odor of fire logs permeated the room. The king bed was wonderful. The cabin however could be spruced up to make it much more pleasing to guests. A fresh coat of pain would help a lot and updating the plumbing... More

I went canoeing on the Shenandoah river last week and was looking for a nice place to stay. Found the Blackthorne Inn and enjoyed a delicious dinner and drinks in a charming pub and restaurant - all while listening to a great guitar player. Can't wait to go back. The room I rented was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated.

Went here for a date with my sweetheart. Had an incredible meal. Loved the curry salad, fettuccine and the desserts were awesome. They made us fresh coffee too. The service was outstanding. Connor was our most awesome server. Will definitely return to enjoy an overnight stay.
