Exquisitely chef prepared meals with local farm fresh ingredients. Excellent service. After dinner you can relax on one of the many outdoor patio rooms designed to enjoy the county air, stars and lovely fireplaces. If you are looking for a wonderful evening stay the night and enjoy your it even more.

The Inn at Willow Grove turned out to be one of the nicest surprises of our weekend. We headed to Va. for my nieces wedding. A list of restaurants had been given to us by the brides family. We randomly chose The Inn and what a surprise. From the lovely and interesting decor to the knowledgeable wait staff, we were... More

I could run out of words to describe the physical aspects of this establishment. The decor blew us way. The greetings by various staff were beyond the expected. The standout on the team is Carlos,a true gentleman,a true professional. He treated us as old and dear friends,even though we were just off the street,so to speak. We watched him over... More

Husband and I decided to dine here for a regular evening out. I made reservations about 5 days ahead of time. Our reservations were for 6:30. Upon arriving we seemed to be the only ones there and was seated back in the pub area. Not the dining area! Had we known this we wouldn't have bothered making reservations and just... More

The inside of the Vintage Restaurant is very appealing, as is the Pub Bar, but we try to sit outside of the weather permits….and it did last week in spades. We ordered our favorite burger from the Pub menu and it was super as usual. It was the Friday before Labor Day weekend and the place was fairly quiet. Service... More

The new chef didn't miss a beat. Excellent food with wonderful seasoning and favors. Diver scallops were delectable, wonderful and tender pork belly, tasty rabbit and delicious chicken with brown sauce. Unique spinach salad started it all off. Carlos helped with the wine selection that went perfectly with the meals. Service was a bit slow.

food fantastic, farm to table. Menu changes every two weeks. service excellent, wait staff knows every dish on the menu and which wine to go with it. You will find yourself eating things you never thought you would eat after they explain how it is prepared. You are never rushed, we ate there three times in one weekend!

We booked our 33rd anniversary dinner at Willow Grove and were blown away the moment we got out of the car. The building, with its high columns and upward seeping steps, dates back to 1778 but has been meticulously restored over the previous six years. Inside, we expected a colonial motif but found the restaurant done in elegant modern that... More

everything we ordered from the menu was outstanding. The menu is short but has a good variety. Service is personable and each meal is a dining experience.
