Description: Located in the quaint village of Middleburg and inspired by four centuries of Virginia Hunt Country tradition, the Red Fox embodies the Piedmont’s cultural heritage. Established in 1728, our four story fieldstone Inn and Tavern boasts hand-hewn ceiling beams, heart pine floors and paneling, working fireplaces, and walls adorned with sporting art. Join us in the heart of Virginia’s famed Hunt and Wine Country to enjoy a hearty meal in our tavern followed by a relaxing evening in one of our cozy guest rooms.

Old Inn atmosphere with very uninspired modern food choices, exicuted poorly. Middleburg has better options.

After returning to the D.C. area after three years overseas, a friend and I opted to out and explore Hunt Country (Loudoun County, VA). We decided to stop at the Red Fox Inn for lunch because of its history and their famous peanut soup. The soup was amazing, like eating liquified peanut butter. I completely understand the draw to this place. The lighting is minimal and you can just imagine some member of the founder fathers eating here with his compatriots. I also like the fact the JFK used the Tavern as a location for some of his press conferences.... Go and enjoy this little spot that time forgot....

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.

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.,
