While visiting Annapolis, we took a day-trip to Middleburg, Virginia to sight-see and to have lunch at the Red Fox. Our lunch was simply fabulous. The Virginia peanut soup, wedge salad, and trout entree on a bed of bacon and goat cheese grits was delicious as was the pecan pie for dessert. Our waitperson added to the experience by being...

If you come to Middleburg, horse country, and spend time in town as well as out in the beautiful open spaces, do have a meal at the Red Fox Inn & Tavern. This is located in town and above all has ambiance. It has a sense of history and is warm and cozy. We were very pleased with our meal,... More

My husband and I had dinner at Red Fox on Thursday night. We were greeted warmly and shown to a nice table in the back room close to the fire place. The atmosphere is nice and it does have a quaint feel to it. Our server was friendly and did a nice job of making sure we were happy. She... More

The place is very nice, and the food is excellent. I did not stay there, but went to a corporate dinner. The starters were just fantastic, and the salad, the main course and the dessert were perfect. The service is very good also.

My wife and I were in Middleburg and dined at the Red Fox to celebrate her 65th birthday. We were joined by our son and his family who drove out from Falls Church to help celebrate too. The Tavern was so cozy and warm on a nippy evening with 2 of their fireplaces cheering up the Tavern. The menu was... More

The service and the food was excellent. What a great choice to have a romantic dinner. We ate in the upper dining room and enjoyed every bite! I wish I would have spent my entire weekend with them. I will return and stay at the Inn, as well as enjoy an incredible meal.

We had dinner here tonight and it was one of the best dining experiences we've had anywhere, including all over the U.S. and several European countries. Every dish is done perfectly with an expert touch, particularly sauces. A locally farmed hen was done to perfection: crispy on the outside, super-juicy and flavorful inside in a terrific sauce. Same for the... More

My wife brought me to the Red Fox for dinner and to spend the night in the Inn, and we could not have had a more exquisite dinner. To begin with, they had a very nice table near the fireplace waiting for us when we arrived. Philip, our server, greeted us immediately and took wonderful care of us all evening.... More

They don't post their hours for lunch & dinner service. Had we known they were going to stop serving, we wouldn't have gone there to celebrate the fact we had just got married and were heading to our honeymoon. Big disappointment. Beware of their rudeness as well.
