Loved the English pub thing, great time, great food, thanx
Perfect for any occasion. Chicken pot pie, Guinness beef stew and sticky toffee pudding. The best. Everything here is excellent. Parking can be a challenge on Friday nights and weekends but worth waiting for a spot!
Very casual and a bit noisy but overall a fun experience. Good food and service at a reasonable price.
Great. Always great drink, food, and people.
Awesome food (bread was a surprise and amazing)! Great drinks! Very unique experience!
We had a wonderful experience and would love to return! We'll most definitely be recommending it to friends! Thank you!
The fish (fish and chips) was outstanding. The onion dip was outstanding. The chips and Caesar salad were not as good as usual.
The service was great.
Service is very spotty... no water refills without asking and no ice tea refills etc ..... food VERY POOR...… ordered some pizza thing....served COLD and doughy.... French fries burned and stiff.... this place used to be OK , but has really gone down hill our last few visits... will NOT go again !!!
First, I love Hunter's Head Tavern and it's our go to restaurant for all family celebrations! Unfortunately, for this time around, it appeared to be everyone else's go to restaurant, as well! With the unique way of ordering at Hunter's Head, there was an excessive number of people waiting in line to order in a relatively small amount of area. For the first time, even with reservations, with the number of people already in line we were unsure if we should stay in line or have them seat us first, as suggested by the first person who finally acknowledged our presence. Unfortunately, without comprehending that even after being seated, we would then have to stand back in line, we chose the being seated option. Our waitress did provide menus, but made clear she was not taking our orders from the table. So back in line for all of us! While I would suggest they review the convenience of taking orders from the table for all customers, the food was absolutely wonderful and made the rest of the inconveniences worth it! We'll definitely be back with more patience knowing that the end result is fabulous!
Being told this was the place to go, I would not hurry back.
The place is interesting and cozy, the service is good. Young staff and friendly. Unfortunately, they seem to get stacked up and backed up. We had to ask more than once for items - such as a glass, utensils, and condiments. Our food arrived cold and over salted. Maybe when there is not such a crowd in town they will have more time for the details.
One of the best taverns in all of Virginia. The atmosphere is beautiful, the food is excellent, the staff is accommodating and friendly. My wife and I had gone to HHT a few times and really liked it, so we decided to host a Gender Reveal party there. We had 13 guests in total and were accommodated with our own room and HHT was kind enough to provide us with a special cake for the occasion, which turned out to be excellent. Everything was just perfect. Highly recommended.
Absolutely loved it here. And their patio is very dog friendly, so she was also welcome.
Best food and great atmosphere
The ambience and physical structure of the building was charming… However the food was very mediocre. The onion soup was at best average and the chicken in the salad was full of Cartlidge
This restaurant is one of our "go-to" places for a good meal in a cozy, quaint setting. We love the rustic and warm ambiance and the food is always good. Wonderful meats, fresh vegetables and salads, excellent pastas and desserts.
Most enjoyable evening. Love coming there as do the guests we bring.
Excellent food and service. Enchanting atmosphere and vibe. Always great!
A local favorite‼️
good food and nice atmosphere. I liked the British pub ambiance.
Hunter's Head Tavern is our favorite place to go...., we love that we don't live too far from the restaurant, :) LOVE the food..., I had Gnocchi, yum!!! It brought back great memories of me as a child helping my grandmother make Gnocchi's. Perfect comfort food..., delicious!
The food was exceptional and the service was impeccable!
The Shepherds pie and chicken pot pie are excellent choices. We enjoyed the entire experience! Will be coming back
Food was solid, though nothing exceptional. Overall atmosphere was very charming.
We were a group of 8 and had a separate room. Great time - excellent food.
One of the best lunches we’ve had at Hunter’s Head since we began visiting in 2006. Fish and chips excellent and the lobster roll was scrumptious.
Bartender/Order taker was not friendly at all! She seemed extremely irritated and was short was our party when we asked questions about the menu and how the ordering process worked. Our server was slow and seemed to be rushing us thru our meal. Three of the four in our party ordered the steak which was extremely tough. Dining room was not very cleanly. Prob won’t eat here again.
Always amazing! Great food, great friendly service, and a charming atmosphere.
Nice. Food was good, not great, but we loved the setting. The "fried" chicken was really just oven baked; the blackberry "tart" was not that flavorful, but OK; the orange vanilla ice tea, was fine by not a hit.
Absolutely wonderful! The service for us and our canine friend could not have been better- lovely people and fantastic food! We will be back again- maybe for Yappy Hour!
We had a mid afternoon reservation, and we were the only patrons upstairs. Our server was very attentive, informative and helpful. Food was good as always, but the service was exceptional. Thanks for making my friends birthday memorable!
One of my favorite places to eat. Always love their farm to table menu, staff is friendly and helpful all the time.
We have dined at Hunters Head on many occasions and many seasons. When we arrived, we decided to try the outdoor seating because the weather was cooperating. However, before ordering our food, it became clear that there was an extremely raucous table outside, and the noise level became intolerable (and the behavior became embarrassing). The staff graciously accepted our request to renew our indoor reservation and we proceeded to have a fairly quiet and quite delicious meal in an upstairs room.
Everything is phenomenal except my food. The bread was delicious and my sides were fine. The steak however was the worst I have ever eaten. I kept trying to cut it and I would have to saw each piece five to six times. My husbands fish and chips were delicious. I should have told my waiter but I didn’t. My dog thoroughly enjoyed it though.
Food was great and I appreciated the fact that, after making a reservation for Saturday evening, your staff was able to change it to the patio at the last minute and I like the informality and friendliness of the patrons.
Love this place. Our favs are the liver/onion and shepherd's pie.
Have been going since opened..time for a serious tune-up
Don't like ordering food and drinks from a gal who obviously doesnt like her job. Steak was chewy, potatoes luke warm .sat outside,bugs,heat.No room inside. What exactly were we tipping for? Servers simply brought us a plate of food.we left 2/3 of our food and no one asked why.
Food and service have gone down since we were there last. A shame as it's a wonderful little place.
Hello Howard! I apologize if you were not able to enjoy your recent visit with us. Can you be more specific on what happened on your day of visit so we will make sure all concerns will be addressed accordingly. We appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback.
We had a wonderful experience. Our server, Bianca, was very sweet and we enjoyed conversing with her. I had the shepherds pie and my husband the hamburger and they were delicious. Chocolate cake for dessert. Perfect.
The young man who greeted us seemed to be confused and did not tell us we had to go inside and order, so we sat outside for a while waiting. I got a phone call halfway through lunch asking if we were still coming, so obviously he did not do what he was supposed to do. But our waitress, Michelle, was fabulous, and the food and the rest of the service were excellent. Would definitely come again.
