Destination Restaurant. Originally built in 1728 and known as Chinn’s Ordinary, The Red Fox Inn & Tavern has offered uninterrupted hospitality to travelers for more than 275 years, making it the oldest continually operated inn in the US. The Red Fox has stood as history unfolded in and around it, and numerous historical figures took shelter in its fieldstone walls. Famous guests have included Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who frequently stayed at the inn during fox hunting holidays. Today, The Red Fox Inn & Tavern is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and each of its dining rooms has an ambience that exudes history. Owned and operated by three generations of The Reuter Family since 1976, the family oversees the daily operations of the inn, insuring a quality experience for guests. The Red Fox culinary team creates the tavern’s menu highlighting local ingredients using time honored techniques of smoking, braising, and roasting, resulting in home-style dishes that are simple yet genuine. While a new generation continues to breathe fresh life into this historic inn and tavern, its hunt country charm and rich history are what make this establishment a Virginia landmark, and to many, the heart of the Middleburg community.
