Staff was phenomenal. We will be back soon. Our favorite place.
Food and atmosphere were amazing. Be sure to get a reservation as it is typically full.
This place is delightful! Many outdoor tables in a beautiful courtyard area. It is the perfect place for lunch or dinner on a nice day. We will return!
The brunch was wonderful. Hash and French toast were huge hits. Great service. Patio is perfect.
The two girls working the hostess station were not welcoming or even polite. I clearly was interrupting their conversation when I arrived, and they were not happy about it. Dining room was full of cheap, crummy "vacation cabin" furniture with dumb little framed hunting scenes on the walls. All in all very much an all-you-can-eat buffet vibe. This is NOT what an English pub looks like.
Sat for 20 minutes before anyone offered us a drink. We ordered the brussels sprouts as an appetizer; they were very good and I thought that things were looking up. Sadly, the rest of the meal was a real letdown. They need to serve salted butter with the bread; the unsalted butter made the bread bland and greasy.
The "famous" fish and chips were just AWFUL. Much of the cod was brown (??) and the breading was greasy mush with no flavor at all. The chips--skinny shoestring fries--were disgusting: greasy, limp, and tasteless. The "smushed peas" had a gross texture and were stone cold. I don't usually order dessert, but I was still so hungry after eating almost none of the greasy fish, so I got the completely unremarkable sticky toffee pudding for dessert. No flavor other than cloying sweetness. I didn't even get a clean spoon with it. Everything was SO overpriced! I seem to remember the sticky toffee pudding costing more than ten bucks, which is obscene.
All of the waitstaff seemed to be teenagers. Service was glacial. We got some items we asked for eventually; others we had to ask for twice; a couple of things never arrived at all. There were huge houseflies everywhere; we had to keep waving them off of our food. There was no salt or pepper on the table, but we figured if we asked for it we'd be through eating before it arrived, so we didn't bother. To top it all off, I had indicated that our meal was for a special occasion when I made the reservation; not one member of the staff mentioned it.
If my friends ever want to go here again, I will do my best to talk them out of it.
The waitress had no personality. When she first arrived at our table she just stood and looked at us. Usually, your server introduces her or himself, welcomes you to the restaurant and offers to take drink orders. She just looked at us for about 2 seconds, which is a lifetime in that situation, until I said we would like a drink. She recommended a Virginia red wine for my wife and it was terrible. My beer came with no head on it. A beer should be served with a head of foam about 1/2” to3/4”. This is not unusual in a lot of restaurants. Most bartenders think they have to serve a beer filled to the top with no head. Big mistake.
My wife’s pork chop entree came with the side of corn and okra that was room temp. It went back and was returned several minutes later, hot and with a different pork chop. The pork chop had lots at fat, that my wife cut off. When we mentioned the fat content, the waitress said the pigs they source are free range, no drugs and eat all natural food products, which makes the meat more fatty. Not sure about that. But it could have trimmed a little better before cooking.
I ordered steak frites and the waitress asked if I wanted ketchup for my French fries, which I replied, “yes”. The ketchup never made it to the table.
I’m not sure how much steak I got in my entree, but for $42.00, it could have been more, or a better cut of meat. It may have been about 6 ounces, but it never said on the menu.
On a positive note, the dessert of Sticky Toffee Pudding was very good.
Our food was excellent and we had great service. The waiter was pleasant and very efficient. It was the first time dinning at Hunter's Head Tavern and plan to return in the future.
Always terrific! I love sitting inside to get a taste of an English pub as I remember in England. Love the variety of food choices too. Our waitress was excellent!
Third time eating here this trip. Great ambience, terrific service along with tasty food!
This is a great place with a varied menu from light to a lot and with tastes that will satisfy even the most difficult diners. Love the atmosphere, the food, the drink and the service.
Very helpful staff and good food despite a very busy restaurant!
Will definitely go back!
Our server was excellent. Food was good. Our server was The flies were terrible!
The food at Hunter’s Head is always fresh well prepared. We received outstanding service from Gary and we appreciated the change in how food is ordered.
I love eating here! The outdoor area is beautiful, lots of trees and plants with sturdy tables and chairs. Pretty plants and flowers everywhere. The food is really good. We both had the fish and chips which were appropriately crunchy. The cod was thick and flaky and the fries were crispy. We will return again soon!
The three women in our party were promptly seated on the patio as we had a reservation. The wait staff was attentive and our drinks and food came promptly. The food was nothing to write home about and somewhat disappointing. . My pork chop was a bit tough. My friend's salmon was good but only came with a few small pieces of asparagus and the other friend has the moroccan spiced sirloin which had lots of gristle.
The appetizers were really good. The entrees were not. You can tell the food was frozen or not fresh.
Food is consistently good, especially the traditional British fare.
Good food with a quaint British vibe. Best on a nice day when you can sit outside.
The food and service are always great at Hunter's Head.
Came to Hunters Head a few weeks ago. Liked it so much we came back yesterday. Love the new concept where you don’t have to order from the chalkboard. The staff is lovely as well as the space and the food. A true gem of a place in the Va. Hunt Country!
Good service. Nice ambience. The tavern is old but that is what is so appealing about it.
We enjoyed on outdoor delicious dinner at Hunters Head in the delightful village of Upperville, VA. Beautiful evening with 82 degrees and a nice breeze. Outdoor tables are nicely spread apart and the new additional patio seating at a little higher level is great. My wild caught salmon was perfectly season on a bed of Soba noodles and both were delicious. My partner had the pork chop and he would recommend it for the heartier eater, it was a large portion and very good. We opted for ice cream and Belgian waffle ice cream dessert which was the perfect ending to a most enjoyable evening.
It is a favorite place to go when you need a bit of country charm and relaxing conversation accompanied by delicious food and amazing desserts! The garden is the perfect backdrop to an amazing afternoon!
We enjoyed the British pub ambiance of Hunters Head. Now that it’s under new management, the flavor and ambiance is gone. Menu has changed and food is not the same quality. Service was good and the Sticky Toffee Pudding was delicious. Not sure I will return. Bring back the pub flare!
I have been dining at The Hunters Head since opening week in 2002. Always a good dining experience.
Hidden gem - redolent of Rural Virginia with a Brit-tinge.
Dining under the outdoor pavilion is absolutely delightful. They have the best fish. The service was awesome.
Too many flies were in the dining room.
Need to do something about them.
Incredible, authentic English pub style food. Mushy peas, shepherds pie, bangers/mash. Gorgeous historical building, beautiful garden and great service. Couldn’t have been happier.
They accommodated our party's wish for seating. Food was great! Highly recommend.
Delightful experience, great ambiance, excellent food and service. Overall great experience for me and my friends. Would definitely recommend to others.
Perfect stop, past Middleburg, for excellent food and atmosphere. I have always had flavorful, farm-fresh food and beverages every time I have been here. (The mushy peas have transformed my opinion of the dish!) Both indoor and outdoor dining are a pleasant treat and take me back to memories of English pubs I’ve loved.
Whenever someone comes to visit, THIS is the place we take them for a memorable occasion. Highly recommend.
We had outdoor reservations on what was probably one of the most glorious evenings of the summer. Perfect weather (which couldn't help but make the food and wine more delectable). Loved our server as well (Conrad?)
salad and dessert were good, but I did not enjoy the tandoori chicken. Service was very spotty -?maybe a new waitperson?
We are in the Upperville area about 2 - 4 times/year, and we always eat at the Hunter's Head for lunch or dinner. We love the atmosphere and the vibe there. We've also never had a bad meal or bad service. I can't say enough good things about this place!
Always a treat to dine here with seasonal choices along with traditional fare. Love that the menu includes wine paring.
We really enjoyed our meal at HHT, the setting was so adorable, and the quality and freshness of the food was amazing. Our only complaint was that our server, who was very young, brought our salad and entrees out at the same time. We would have preferred the salad first, then the entrees. As a result, our entrees got cold (seafood entrees that are best warm) and probably wasn't as good because of it. This is likely just due to the waitress's inexperience, she was really friendly and attentive otherwise. Overall wonderful experience, and would def be back if we are ever in the area again.
New patio roomy and tables spread out. Fresh fresh food!
