We invite you to relax and experience the fine dining and creative regional cuisine that is the hallmark of our bed and breakfast. Our mouthwatering menus and graceful dining room offer the perfect setting for an elegant evening in the heart of Virginia wine country.
Embark on a culinary journey prepared by classically-trained, creative Chef-Owner Suzie Blanchard. Our constantly updated menus feature the freshest of local foods and the bounties of each season. Wine pairing suggestions – featuring only the best of Virginia wines — complement each menu item.
The Experience: Enjoy a tasting menu of four courses, carefully crafted and served in our historic, candle lit plantation dining room. Tables are set with white cloths, crisp napkins and fresh flowers. Each course has a choice of two or three dishes, each paired with wine carefully selected from our exclusively Virginia wine list.
Because dining is such an important part of the Meander experience, we require that guests of our Virginia inn dine with us one of the nights of their stay when the restaurant is open.
The Menu: Entrees usually include a red meat, a fish or seafood, and another protein, such as quail or duck. Dinner begins at seven o’clock and typically moves at a leisurely European pace, taking about two hours.
The Wine: Supporters of the Virginia wine industry since our opening, we are proud of our relationship with local winemakers and vineyards and are pleased to share our extensive knowledge of Virginia wines.
Dining Details: Our Four-course Dinner Menu is served at 7:00 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The dinner cost is $65 per person, exclusive of taxes and optional alcohol and gratuity. The flight of 4 Virginia wines with dinner is an additional $30; wine also may be purchased by the bottle or by the glass. Virginia beers also are available.

Dress: While the Inn does not have a jacket and tie requirement, gentlemen most often choose slacks and sport shirt and ladies a dress or slacks and blouse. Some guests like to dress up to celebrate a special occasion or just to have a lovely night out.
Dietary Accommodations: Special dietary needs, allergies or special diets are happily accommodated whenever possible. Be sure to tell the Innkeeper if something special is needed for your stay. Due to the limited size or our kitchen, we know that cross contamination is a possibility and are not able to fulfill stringent dietary issues with confidence.
Our Popular Dinner Basket
On the nights the Inn’s dining room is not open, we offer our guests the choice of a full, hot, three course chef-prepared meal, packed in a large basket, complete with dishes, silverware and cloth napkins. Dinner Baskets are ready for you to pick up at 6:30. Advance notice is required, please.
Typically the chef’s choice menu will be a soup or salad, an entrée with two sides, fresh bread and butter and a dessert. A bottle of Virginia wine can be added to complete your private dining experience.
