“Only thing missing is Thomas Jefferson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Red Fox Inn has been one of our favorites for 40+ years. Located in beautiful Middleburg, VA on main, plenty of shopping/browsing in the neighborhood. Food is great - favorite is peanut soup or smoked duck spring rolls. Dress up or show up casual - but show up. Great stop for lunch during a sortie through the Virginia vineyards nearby. Don't leave before you try their Bourbon Pecan Pie with a double espresso.

“Lovely historic building - great ambiance.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

I have been there many times. I prefer the lunch menu - it has more casual options. The food is good and I love the ambiance. The restaurant is an old tavern with dark wood and fireplaces. The upstairs space can hold parties. In the summer, there is nice dining on the outdoor patio. Bring a sweater since it can be a little cool downstairs since it is in an old stone house, however nothing beats sitting by the fire drinking a hot cider in the fall or winter. It is a great choice for a day in the country.,

Attentive but not intrusive staff. Well prepared food. Good menu with great specials. The dining room takes you back to our colonial era.

“Nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

We met friends here (the place was their choice), so we had no idea what to expect. Well, we were there half hour after the place opened and it was packed solid.

Gracious wait staff, generous portions, unpretentious but interesting food, a sample of local beers and virginia wines. I can see why this place is popular.

It is noisy and the tables are close together, so while I can recommend this as a great place to meet friends and relax (because the buzz makes it fun), its probably not where i would go to discuss something more somber.but then, who does that in a tavern anyway.
