Was recommended the breakfast poutine over the fish and chips- should have went fish and chips. My husband loved the poutine, but too rich for my no gallbladder body. The calamari appetizer was delicious. Overall a good time and we’d go back.
The staff are terrific and the food is outstanding.
Relaxing Alfresco dining experience, I would highly recommend the Hunter's Head Tavern. Traditional British Pub fare with an attention to fresh local ingredients.
Waiter was essentially a young man who had no idea what he was doing, interrupted us, could not fill waters, could not get the orders correct, could not bring silverware.
Also, we asked for 5 different glasses of wine on the menu, only to be told they were changing wine menu, so I guess it is time think about reprinting the beverage menu.
The patio ambience was nice, but that had nothing to do with the food service, or beverage menu.
Always delightful! My pups and I can’t wait to go back!!
We enjoy this place very much and were looking forward to returning safely. Our table outside was lovely and good distancing between tables felt safe. However, our waitress kept moving her mask up and down, covering her chin but not her mouth and rarely her nose. I looked away every time she approached our table and spoke to us with her mask on her chin. I expected better compliance with the state rules and wish now I had been able to confront her or just gotten up and left the restaurant when it became clear that she was respectful of neither social distancing nor covering her face. We are very sad we will not be able to return to our favorite ‘pub’ for the foreseeable future.
We love Hunter's Head, and we are so delighted that it is open again. At this time, we are only comfortable with outdoor dining and reservations, so this was perfect! We enjoyed our lunch, but I surely hope that the wonderful quiche will return to the menu (my favorite!).
We had lunch outside and ordered the fish and chips and a bacon burger, and a huge slice of chocolate cake. The service was professional and efficient.
Food and drink were fabulous, as always here. It was great to see their efforts to distance and santize. We felt spoiled.
The food I ordered from the lunch menu was excellent! The crispy chicken Katsura sandwich was perfectly prepared and the sweet potato “chips” were perfect in taste and texture. I also loved the watermelon margarita.
The outdoor setting was beautiful and peaceful. The tables were a nice size, the chairs were comfortable, and the surrounding plantings were beautiful.
The waitress was friendly, responsive, and efficient.
Lovely evening spent for my husbands birthday. The only 2 things that were not great: Mains were served whilst we were still eating our starters. There was also another guests with a dog that kept barking (not the houses fault) but it ruined the quiet outdoor dining we were trying to experience.
Overall food was good. Lovely friendly staff.
been going for a long time and it never disappoints Calamari was perfect. Staff was great and smiling beneath their masks. the outdoor seating is wonderful
Father’s Day, my wife was taking me out for dinner, with our grown kids now living out of state. We love the old world ambience here, and we’ve never been disappointed with the food and libations. It’s a long drive from home for us, but it’s a unique place, so we don’t mind once in a while. We waited too long to get reservations, unfortunately, so the best time available was 4:15pm, which we grabbed. Because it was between their lunch and dinner times, we had fewer menu options available to us, and none of the Father’s Day specials. I ended up ordering the fish and chips, and my wife got a build-your-own burger. Our server was friendly and helpful, but so busy that we did a lot of waiting to order and to receive our drinks and food. I won’t order the same thing, if we come again, as I was not impressed with my choice this time. My wife enjoyed her burger, but it wasn’t worth the price or the drive. It’s a long way for us to go for nice ambience and just decent food.
Father’s day dinner. Server - Kyle fantastic! Stew geeat and flavorful and filling. My husband had chicken fried steak and thought needed more spices.
Coming back this week though as everything was still great and sanitary!
My husband and I celebrated his birthday with a lunch at the Hunter's Head. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. We ate in the couryard and this could have been a better experience for us if we had not been seated right in front of the entrance to the restaurant where we experienced all the flurry and activity of the servers carrying meals out to other diners. The courtyard is otherwise lovely and a quieter spot would have earned a five star for our experience.
food was simple but elegant, tasty... service was courteous and warm, restrooms clean, well stocked
We think the quality of the food has suffered since the last time we ate at Hunter's Head. This may be attributable to possible staff changes because of Covid.
Had trouble keeping server attention and she didn’t understand Fish and Chips usually includes Ma
Lovely outdoor venue and good food, nice servers. Thanks!
GREAT PLACE TO RELAX AND HAVE SOME FOOD AND DRINKS
Great food and great service! We love Hunter’s Head for any occasion!
Ordered the Shepard’s pie, it was bland. Wife had the hamburger and it needed some salt or seasoning. Fries were good.
We love Hunter's Head and have had many wonderful dining experiences there with friends, inside and out, for years. Our Border Terrier was made very welcome as she accompanied us after a visit to our vet. Dining was outside only on the last day of the restrictions. It was very pleasant sitting outside with Rosie on a warm day.
The Irish drafts are very good, Guinness and Smithwick, We wanted a good white wine, but you don't have one... no French white or red. Need a Sancerre. My husband liked his fish and chips, but I was disappointed in the curried vegetables. The curry was very bland, and I would have liked more chick peas.
Dessert was excellent, we split a berry tart.
It was nice to be back after a move from Unison to Alexandria. We look forward to many more visits.

It was great to be able to return to the Hunter's Head after several months. The staff was welcoming; the outdoor seating was perfect for the climate; and the food was great!
The Hunter's Head remains one of my favorite restaurants in all the world. I fully recommend it.
Wonderful, as always🎉
Food was great, the waiter was very attentive. Beautiful setting!
Very good food and service... table was in very sunny spot so some in our party were a bit uncomfortable due to heat and direct sun because the umbrella only covered part of the table.
Beautiful establishment, good food, great service. Will be going again.
During Covid-19, we found them to be very adherent to the recommended precautions. We are from Fairfax county so we were nervous that Fauquier county wouldn’t participate to the same level of safety measures. We were very pleased and comfortable eating here. Also, food and patio was very nice! Loved the Red Dragon cheese :)
Beautiful old Tavern with patio seating.
Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Looking forward to eating there again .
Excellent choice for safely-distanced outdoor dining during the pandemic (or anytime). Great food. Tables are sprayed after each use. Beautiful patio with lots of plantings. Historic.
The garden is open and feels like an English pub, we love it. Food as always excellent and service great.
Hunters Head never EVER disappoints! The food is amazing. The staff is amazing. I cannot wait to come back when this Covid stuff is done!
Conscientious “reopening” left us comfortable and able to enjoy great food and beautiful patio dining.
We had an awesome birthday brunch... Staff was very friendly. Food was prepared promptly and perfectly!
The food was very bland, not much flavor or seasoning, had to request salt and pepper
Always a great meal and ambience. I’ll return time and again.
A lovely quiet dinner for our anniversary on the patio! Hunter's head never disappoints!
My husband and I had a lovely experience at Hunter's Head Taven and really enjoyed how engaging and kind our waitress was. However, I was upset to see the manager being very rude, impatient, and demeaning to her staff (waitress/waiters). She did not seem to be treating them with the dignity they deserve as human beings. This behavior is not acceptable for someone in a leadership position.
We had very good service and the outdoor atmosphere was great!
