My husband and I and his sister and her husband visited last night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the restaurant. My husband and I have been here a few times and have found the food to be terrific and the site a wonderful one. I had scallops (broiled perfectly) and two crab cakes with very very little filler last nighr. My husband enjoyed the beef stroganoff and his brother in law liked his chicken. My sister in law enjoyed the crab dip appetizer we all got and her sides and dessert. The only negative comment regarding the chicken she received was that it had no flavor. My husband and I are fairly local and will continue to patronize the restaurant - we enjoy the chef visiting from the kitchen and the (genrally) great staff.
My only cons: when we arrived at the restaurant we were told by the woman at the desk a couple of times that we were not on the list to be served We had made reservations online for window seats and there were many seats available - she did not need to tell us that we were not on the list;also our waitress was slow but pleasant - she didn't remove the menus from the table when we were finished and we had to ask her each time to remove dishes that were empty. But we appreciate her efforts and are planning our next visit to the restaurant.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- More than 100 years of history..Perched on a hill above the namesake village it overlooks, Flint Hill Public House & Country Inn is a large white house that is hard to miss. The building is a former schoolhouse that has been a fixture in the area for more than 100 years. In the early 1900s, a one-room schoolhouse was moved from the premises to make room for a new school called the Flint Hill School. Built in 1906, the new school was instrumental in educating Rappahannock County children until 1960, when the property was sold and became a private residence. In 1986, the schoolhouse/residence was sold and renovated and opened as The School House Restaurant. In 1992, the restaurant operation was leased as The Flint Hill Public House until it closed in 2008. In June 2011, new owners purchased the property and undertook an extensive renovation and redesign, hiring noted Washington, DC, architect Ernesto Santalla. The complete renovation took the building down to the bare walls and included moving an interior stairwell to the outside to accommodate four luxury suites on the expansive second floor. The new Flint Hill Public House & Country Inn opened in early 2012 – ready for another 100 years as a local landmark and gathering place. ... more less
