A group of fox hunters walks into a bar. That’s not a joke but the start of a regular weekend at this English pub in Virginia’s horse and wine country. Warm weather brings a mix of locals and vineyard-hoppers to the 60-seat garden patio, while a table in the converted 18th-century log cabin is the place to down pints of Newcastle and slurp raw oysters. Local organic ingredients elevate classic pub grub such as shepherd’s pie and fish and chips. Insider tip: Weekends, especially in prime winetasting months, get busy. Book ahead. Open daily.
