If you are staying at the resort, this is a great place to eat and drink. The staff are great, and the food is really good.

We drove out to the resort for a birthday lunch for my wife. It is a romantic setting. We sat at a window table and watched the rain pour down outside, while we enjoyed a flight of wine and two delicious and filling lunches. I had the grouper, she had the pasta carbonara. Both were great. The cheesecake was a... More

What a nice evening to wind down and have dinner at Gold Cup Wine Bar! There were loads of cars in the parking lot of the Salamander Resort tonight but we were seated promptly by Bryan who greeted us as we walked to the bar entrance. At that moment we didn't realize he was not the greeter but rather one... More

We are staying at the resort and decided to eat dinner there. Our server Walter was excellent. The cauliflower appetizer was even better than he described. The donut dessert was very good as well.

We ate here on our final night at Salamander Resort and Spa. There were 7 of us in our party. It was a Sunday night. It was quiet in the restaurant. Our reservation was for 6:30 p.m. The wait staff was very good and food was also very good. We sat in a corner and it was very cozy with... More

First let me start with the irritating part. We just had a fabulous spa day and we're looking forward to a few drinks and appetizers before going back to the room. We waited and waited as staff walked past us repeatedly. Finally a young man said the bar area was being prepped for an event but we could have drinks... More

After spending the 3 previous evenings at the French Hound, the Goodstone Restaurant and Harrimans, my family was ready for something light and casual. The Gold Cup fit the bill nicely. My wife and I split a delicious turkey sandwich and fries. Our half sandwiches were huge and the servings of fries were generous - more than enough to satisfy... More

Great food and service - wife had sushi and I had grouper. Great meal for a reasonable price. You don't have to be staying at the resort to eat here and a great place to go if you don't want to go to downtown Middleburg - which is having a lot of construction now..

We just checked into the Salamander Resort and Spa. What a beautiful place! Ate at the gold cup last night. They had great appetizers, including the cauliflower dish which was a big hit with our group. The wine flights were a great deal and allowed us to try some lovely local wines! This place is a great option!

Thank sarahbpm

Located within Salamander Resort and Spa and open to the public. Small plates of Piedmont-inspired cuisine are paired to the selection of both featured Virginia wines and international selections, then served throughout the day and evening. Whether you enjoy wine by the glass or as a tasting flight as you converse with the visiting winemakers, you will leave our Gold Cup Wine Bar with a much better understanding of Virginia and Middleburg wine country history and why it has earned its place among best wine regions in the US.
