Foursquare Tips

  • ** 1/2 stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom's tip: Expect a twist to dishes when you visit this restaurant.)
  • The patio is the place to sit in nicer months, but the dining room with dark wainscoting and burnt-orange walls is wonderfully cozy.
  • Astoundingly good. One of the best restaurants in the region. Try the rockfish saviche and the smoked beef loin. Wine list is truly inspired.
  • The setting is positively idyllic, the type of place at which you stop for lunch between wineries, and then realize hours later that you've sat in the garden until your next destination has closed.
  • Charming, upscale experience with impeccable views of the Virginia countryside. The patio is an excellent place to enjoy an unforgettable meal looking out into an expansive valley courtyard.
  • The Ashby Inn offers six guest rooms upstairs ranging in price from $155 to $195 a night, including a "full country breakfast" and the chance to dream on.
  • Each of the four small dining rooms has its charms; our favorite is the booth-lined, pumpkin-colored lower dining room, with alluring landscapes by local artists.
  • "You think about things here in the countryside, in an Inn with poor cellphone reception. It's gentle flavors, and tiny touches--in a touchscreen-free zone.
  • "A pale pink soup tastes more like watermelon than the watery fruit itself, and wows with its subtlety." - November 2012 Issue
  • Try the Chocolate Covered Paw Paw - Never had heard of the native North American fruit called paw paw....sort of a cross between a banana and mango. Amazing dessert!
  • Try the Pork Belly Sandwich - Absolutely Ridic. I almost ordered 2!!
  • Try the roasted chicken breast - With cabbage dose
  • Try the Brussels Sprouts - With lardo!!
  • Try the Dill Pickle Cashews - What an amazing flavor combo
  • Great breakfast, loved the potatoes
  • Kings riff on deli standards ingenuously weaves together house-cured pork jowl pastrami, caper-studded Thousand Island dressing and pickled Kohlrabi. - November 2011 issue
  • Tarver King is one of the best chefs in VA.
  • Stay in the Schoolhouse and get the seven course tasting menu at the restaurant. Then you don't have to drive after dinner!
  • The Inn is absolutely lovely - stay in the Schoolhouse if possible. Breakfast is wonderful and DO try to eat at the Inn for dinner at least one night - you will not be disappointed!
  • go hit appalacian trail at sky meadows then to ashby inn for dinner, cocktails. can't beat it.
