Upperville / British / $$$
How do you ensure your food is fresh? Go to a restaurant that’s owned by a farm. In the case of Hunter’s Head Tavern, it’s Ayrshire Farm, just up the road, that supplies the British-style gastropub with its heritage-breed proteins.
This means you can find dishes using every part of the animal, including creamy chicken liver mousse served with pickled grapes, local watercress and pink peppercorn chips. This is comfort food to some, but anyone with a heart will have it warmed by a plate of homemade sausages and creamy mashed potatoes with al dente green beans. It’s local love at its best.

Eat This: Fish and chips, bangers and mash, Chocolate Chocolate Cake
When to Visit: You (and your pooch) feel like food straight from the farm.
