A country wedding...


Few settings in Northern Virginia are as beautiful as the Inn’s back lawns and gardens with a view of the Blue Ridge foothills beyond.

The Inn has gained a wide reputation for its weddings, receptions and special events. An ample covered patio, landscaped gardens and spectacular views offer one of the most beautiful settings in Northern Virginia. Our Chef is both talented and imaginative. Our Events Coordinator will work with you to create special menus, ranging from country buffets to more formal dining.

Our wedding menus are remembered for their imagination and presentation.

Our Chef has created a great range of choices, from a country buffet to a tented, sit-down lunch. General Manager, Pamela Wade, can help you put together that special day. "Part of the fun of wedding planning is to sit down and design your own menu". Read less

There are just a couple of good things I can say about having my wedding at The Ashby Inn. The food is AMAZING and the scenery is idyllic. The day of my wedding at The Ashby was filled with mistakes, oversights, and a tremendous lack of communication between staff members. To note, after expressing numerous times in person and via email that one of my guests has a severe nut allergy, nuts were included in more than one dish on our menu that was presented to us as we sat for dinner. Thankfully, we caught this error before anything was served and the kitchen had to be cleaned, and new food prepared. As a farm-to-table establishment, we expected some last minute menu changes, but the menu offered to us for dinner only included two dishes (from all 3 courses) from which we previously decided. There were a plethora of "little things" that did not go as planned, which led to multiple members of my guest list offering solutions to help move things along smoothly. The payment process was riddled with frustration and disappointment while trying to convey the severity of the lack of communication between staff members and the impact it had on my wedding day. To make matters worse, one particular employee took it upon herself to charge my card as to what "she felt fair for all parties involved" (it did include a discount) without the promised discussion and my written request (because I was out of the country on my honeymoon) to not charge the card until we could speak. Thankfully, after a few emails to multiple members of the Inn's staff, I was issued a refund for the difference of what my receipt upon checkout read, versus the amount this particular employee charged my card.

I think dining at The Ashby Inn is a must; I would, however, proceed with caution if I were planning an event at this location.

Good points: The food truly is amazing. The sunrise from the Fan room is absolutely phenomenal.

Stuart, the Sommelier, is knowledgeable and helpful.

We had our rehearsal dinner here, and it was the best food we’ve ever had. They created a custom 5 course menu for us and selected wine to go with it. Everything was not only delicious, but the visual presentation of each course felt like a work of art. The portions were the perfect size for the amount of food that was planned, and the service was great. The head waiter was very knowledgeable about each dish to the point that it felt like the waiter had cooked each dish himself, and working with Neil beforehand was very easy. We gave Neil a couple of vague guidelines and asked that the chef create dishes he felt were best for the seasonal ingredients available that time of year. We will definitely be going back to eat there again, and we cannot recommend them enough!

I knew I wanted to get married at the Ashby Inn the first time I went there for dinner. The Inn and the property itself is breathtakingly beautiful and romantic. The perfect place to have an outdoor wedding. It is located right in the heart of Virgina's wine country and at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The staff at the Inn, especially Star and Neal, were always there to help and are genuinely wonderful people. Also, The food is 5 star and is well known in the DC area. My guests couldn't say more about how wonderful the food was and how the Inn was the perfect place for the wedding! Everyone and everything at the Inn made my special day perfect. Thank You!
