Best ever Rueben sandwich & turkey Panini. Great service. Before it transformed to a beautiful pub - it was an old bank. Ask to see the photos. We will definitely be back.

Visited for lunch and the food and deserts were very good. My problem was that I had to eat lunch with a sweat shirt on because it was so cold in the restaurant. Turn on the heat!

We enjoyed the raw oysters, leg of lamb and braised beef short ribs. Just the right amount of savory and sauce with the creaminess of the mashed potatoes. Will be back!

Great restaurant and bar. We ate lunch here and our food was excellent. Good service. The beer selection was a bit lacking, which is perplexing given that there is a local brewery with incredible beer (none of which is on the menu here). We ate...More

I don't know about inside - saw no pets - but most of the places there have an outdoor eating area and bringing pets to an outdoor eating area is pretty common in Virginia.
