It’s hard to narrow it down to just one “best” table at The Inn at Little Washington since there isn’t really a bad spot in the entire Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star dining room. Though we do have our favorites. Two of our top tables give you an experience like you’ve never had before and likely will not experience anything like it again. There is a room full of fabulous tables that just happens to be one of the most romantic spots on the property. And finally, an all-time favorite table is located in the main dining room.
Our first two tables that we just can’t get over are situated in the heat of one of the most beautiful kitchens in the world. The two chef’s tables can accommodate six diners each, but we love them for an intimate evening that’s just you and your special someone. Tucked away into an alcove in the back, owner and chef Patrick O’Connell actually designed his legendary kitchen around the chef’s tables. With this backstage pass comes an experience that no one else can even come close to replicating. These really are the premier chef’s tables and shouldn’t be passed up, even though it’s a bit pricier than a normal table.
If you can’t stand the heat, then get out of the kitchen and resort to one of the various two-tops in the utterly romantic Terrace Room. You and your dinner date will be seated side-by-side, giving you both a stellar view of the tranquil garden complete with a koi pond. No matter what table you snag beneath the tented ceiling, we guarantee you will feel the love in the air. Rumor has it that there are numerous engagements in the Terrace Room.
Last, but certainly not least, is an all-time favorite. Table 12 is situated in the corner of the main dining room in such a way that you have a view of everyone in the restaurant. Whether you’re a longtime eavesdropper or just watching the couple getting engaged across the way, you’ll certainly enjoy this table.
