Welcome to Flint Hill Public House Restaurant & Inn.

 

The Flint Hill Public House Restaurant & Inn offers fine dining and luxury lodging in an historic schoolhouse situated on five picturesque acres in beautiful Rappahannock County, Virginia. The Flint Hill Public House Restaurant & Inn may be only a short drive from Washington, DC, but it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

“Public houses” for lodging, food and drink date back to Roman times. Following in that time-honored tradition, we combined a full-service fine dining restaurant, a traditional pub and four luxury suites in a newly renovated building that retains its historic charm while offering modern comfort and luxury.  

In addition, Flint Hill is the perfect gathering spot for receptions, weddings and large outdoor events. Our building and grounds offer a beautiful backdrop for any special event, and our kitchen can prepare an equally beautiful banquet for one or hundreds.  Guests are in good hands as we specialize in personalized service. Managing Partner John Gruber and Executive Chef Marvin Swaner have more than 35 years of combined experience and worked together at one of the busiest restaurants in the area before joining the Public House in July 2011.

About the Art

In addition to good food and service, another one of our goals behind the renovation of the Flint Hill Public House Restaurant & Inn was to create a showcase for art.  Some of the artwork is from the owners’ private collection, but other pieces are available for sale through the Long View Gallery in Washington, D.C.   The “Paladin” sculpture on the front lawn is but one example of our culture-infused environment.  Made from recycled automobile and motorcycle parts, Paladin’s horns are forged from chrome car bumpers.  The fifth of five such sculptures, the other four Longhorns are also in private collections, but Paladin is the only one on public display, greeting visitors near the front entrance.  For a more detailed description about the art on display, see the panels beneath each work or ask the hostess for a more descriptive listing.  Tours of the facility are also available through the hostess.

 

The Flint Hill Public House Restaurant & Inn is environmentally conscious.

We have taken great strides with the renovation of the property from its original structure to today’s vastly different eco-friendly “green” certified restaurant and country inn.   Not only do local sustainable resources drive our menu, but we also have five acres to tend our own garden of herbs and vegetables, including a small area designated as “Marvin’s Garden” and flower garden just off the back patio.  We welcome any gardening tips or suggestions.
