“Outstanding Cusine and Equally Outstanding setting”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

When you are eating in a building once used by General George Washington, you start with high expectations, and everyone of those were met. A wonderful menu of beautifully prepared food, a great wine list, and perfect service. One couldn't ask for more.

“Great Little Pub”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Stayed at the Blackthorne Inn for a weekend getaway, and ate at the pub for dinner one night, and for breakfast twice. The food was good (Wolfe's burger, fish& chips, andouille sausage omelette, waffle& fruit, and scrambled eggs & bacon). But what pushed this from 4 to 5, was the service. The young lady who served us for dinner was very attentive, and the English gentleman who runs the pub for breakfast was outstanding. Always there with more coffee, very polite, and willing to help. We really enjoyed eating here, and would come back even if we weren't staying at the Inn.

“Nice fish and chips”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Hamburger was also good. Harp beer tasted like the "auld sod". Very nice atmosphere in the pub. Service was very good - it's in Upperville so serves to a "higher clientele" of the horsey crowd.

“Wonderful dinner spot”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Inn and dined in the restaurant over Valentines weekend and had a great, romantic dinner. The food was excellent and we discovered the next day when we wandered into Middleburg, VA to do some shopping that they have an excellent reputation and following locally.

I had a mixed grill dish with duck, quail and andouille sausage that was excellent, and my wife had fish with a coconut curry sauce, which she enjoyed very much too. The menu looked like it had something to accommodate most people's tastes and judging by our experience, they are all well done. This is only an hour and a half from DC, so it is a great place for a romantic weekend get-away.

Nice people, great fish and chips and a top shelf manhattan. I have never been disappointed eating here and this week was no exception. Great intimate pub.
