I read about Hunter's Head Tavern in my Northern Virginia electric Co-Op magazine. They weren't wrong, the food is excellent and the service prompt. Recommend making reservations as the place was packed - another sure sign of how much folks enjoy eating here.

Hunter’s Head is a delightful and delicious place to take business partners to lunch or dinner. The pub food is authentic and the selection of brews on tap hits the spot.
