A great place to enjoy traditional English pub fare made from locally sourced ingredients. We epecially liked the Bubble & Squeak and the burgers. The setting is striking, with a beautiful outdoor area and rustic interiors in an original 17th century home. It's the perfect...More

I always love my drive to Upperville. It reminds me of the English countryside with lush rolling hills, historical homes and stone walls. Approaching the pub one can't miss the red phone booth and ivy-covered archway. In the warmer months, the patio is arranged to...More

I look at menus and ingredients before I eat. I ask questions about where the food comes from and what's in it. I'm funny that way. I'm not interested in eating mass produced food full of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, herbicides and bad karma from mistreated...More
