To the southeast of Delaplane you reach the center of Fauquier County at Warrenton. Warrenton, by comparison to the local villages, is a rather large town, with the county court house right in the center of its marvelous and historic Old Town – stately antebellum homes are easily viewed on streets which spoke out from the Old Town area. Old Town has quaint shops and some wonderful, relaxed dining options at places like Claire’s at the Depot, The New Bridge and Red Truck Bakery, offering diverse, interesting dining options.
Old Town Warrenton and surrounding areas were put on the Hollywood map a couple of years ago when Clint Eastwood came to town to shoot large segments of J. Edgar, his film focused on FBI legend J. Edgar Hoover and Hoover’s efforts on the true‐life and world‐famous kidnapping of Charles Lindbergh’s infant son. Leonardo DiCaprio was the star of the film.
Warrenton offers may amenities not found in smaller towns and villages – shopping centers; big‐box stores; fast food options, Fauquier Hospital; auto dealers – which fan out away from the Old Town area.
Having said that, the Warrenton countryside is certainly worth exploring. If you continue about 20 minutes to the southwest of Warrenton, you will enter Rappahannock County and approach Little Washington, home to the internationally known Inn at Little Washington. The Inn offers luxurious accommodations, not to mention one of the Nation’s top fine dining experiences.
If these areas seem to fit the bill, we are experienced here as well.
Claire’s at the Depot – In a casual yet elegant atmosphere set in a century old historic train station, Claire’s passion is great food and service. Offering contemporary American cuisine – local, seasonally focused – with a Southern flair.
