Anyone been recently? Is it worth the drive from Richmond?

  1. It's been 18 months or so. I wouldn't drive that far just for dinner, but if you have a reason to visit Abingdon or make a weekend of it, it's a wonderful dinner. Then again, I won't drive far for much.

    1. My husband and a fishing buddy went last month and said it is worth the trip, but that it's a long trip. They had a fabulous time.

      We are trying to figure a way to get there in the fall. They have a farmhouse close by they have made into two luxury rooms for lodging and they will drive you to and from dinner.

      1. I was there in April and it was still just as fantastic as before!

        Not only did everything taste wonderful, but it delights on so many other levels. I consider it very well worth my 4 hour drive.

        1. I'm driving from Charlotte next month - so I think it's worth it!

            And it was in my top 3 meals in the US.
            Absolutely spectacular!

              My husband wore khaki slack and a button up shirt. I don't think he wore a jacket.

            2. My husband and I went there for dinner this past Wednesday night and stayed at the Farmhouse (which they own). It was a fabulous meal and wonderful time. Staying at the Farmhouse was the icing on the cake.

              1. Just an FYI - they have closed.

                  Not sure that's totally accurate.
                  The chefs and sommelier have departed. But they may still reopen (always closed at this time of year).

                  1. re: estufarian

                    The Email they sent out last week said "closed" and will not reopen after their usual winter closing.

                      You are correct - I misunderstod the phrase "Our future plans for Town House...are undetermined at this time"
                      They are closed.

                        Yes, with the restaurant data base being removed I wanted to update the threads I found. You'd hate someone driving a ways assuming it's open...Most would prob. have tried to make reservations, but better safe!
