  • General Info
    What days are you open? We have just one seating Wednesday through Saturday evenings. Dinner begins at 7 pm, however, we welcome you to stop in early for a pre-dinner cocktail. Our doors will open at approximately 6:45 pm. ​ What is the best way to get in touch? Email is the best way to get in touch with us at info@threeblacksmiths.com. You can also give us a call at (540) 987-5105. If we're not near the phone, leave a message and we'll get back to you. We’re always happy to hear from you; just keep in mind that reservations can only be made through our web site. ​ Do you take walk-ins? We don’t take walk-ins, but we’ll post any last-minute availability on social media. In other words, a same-day reservation is possible, but only if we've sent out a notice. How long is dinner? The entire meal typically lasts up to 4 hours. Do you have a bar? We don't have a traditional bar at Three Blacksmiths, but we do offer three signature cocktails to guests who are joining us for dinner. Our two barrel-aged cocktails feature spirits from our neighborhood distillery, Copper Fox, and our zero-proof pre-dinner cocktail changes with the seasons. We also serve two levels of wine-pairings curated by Chef Jake to compliment our menu, as well as by-the-glass or -bottle menus. For those who prefer non-alcoholic drinks, we offer a zero-proof pairing to enjoy alongside your meal. Additionally, we have post-dinner cocktails including sherry, port, and a growing collection of Italian, as well as locally sourced, amari. What's the largest party size you can accommodate? Due to the small nature of our restaurant, the largest party size we can accommodate is six. If you would like to book a party larger than six, please reach out to us about booking a private event. Multiple reservations on the same date may result in cancellation. Do you offer Gift Cards? Sorry, we no longer offer gift cards. If you have an outstanding gift card, please contact us prior to your reservation so we can apply it. We cannot take a gift card if it is presented during dinner. Do you accept children? Well-mannered kids are welcome. Keep in mind the length of the meal and the intimate atmosphere when deciding whether or not your kid(s) and the neighboring tables will enjoy their evening. Each child needs a full-priced reservation and will be served the same tasting menu as the grown-ups. Can I buy one of your copper bars, anvils, or a cool new t-shirt? Certainly! Visit our Shop Page for pictures and pricing info. Order in advance by contacting us at shop@threeblacksmiths.com and we can have it ready when you come in to dine with us.
  • Pricing and Payment
    Reservation Options and Pricing - We have one seating at 7:00pm with one multi-course tasting dinner for $158 per guest. We'll serve 6 - 9 courses, depending on the menu.

Do You Charge a Corkage Fee? Due to our small size, we are not currently offering corkage at our restaurant. We have two varieties of wine pairings, as well as our signature zero proof pairing, that have been specially curated to complement our weekly menu. We also have a list of wines by the bottle and a list of wines by the glass. Why Do You Take Deposits? When you book your table, we charge a $50 deposit per guest up front. Our dining room seats just 20 guests (about 6 tables), so we’ll be collecting and preparing ingredients especially for your visit. A deposit system allows us to anticipate your arrival and provide you with a truly special dining experience at the best possible price. ​ What Does My Balance Due Include? On the morning of your arrival, your credit card will be charged the following: Balance on dinner(s) minus deposit paid 22% service 9.3% Virginia state and local tax When you arrive, you can add beverages to your tab which will be charged to your card on file. Let us know before the end of your meal if you'd like to pay a different way for those items. As much as possible, we prefer all transactions to happen behind the scenes so you can just sit back, relax and let us serve you! Can I Split the Tab? Splitting the tab with your dining companions is easy. When making your reservation, you'll see a "Split Tab" button. Enter the email address(es) of your dining companions and the number of people in their party. They'll get an email invitation to enter their credit card information and pay their portion of the bill. They must agree to split the tab before the morning of your booking, or your credit card will automatically be charged the balance. If you didn't split the tab while making the reservation, but there are still a few days before your dinner, email owner@threeblacksmiths.com with the email address(es) of the guests with whom you'd like to split the tab and we can invite them to do so on your behalf. If you didn't split the tab before dinner and your dining companion(s) wish to pay for all or part of the meal afterward, we're happy to provide an itemized total so you can settle up separately; we don't issue full or partial refunds for the purpose of splitting the tab.
  • Cancellation Policy
    Our cancellation policy was updated on March 1, 2023: If you cancel: More than seven (7) days before your booking time: ​ You'll receive a gift card of equal value to your deposit amount that will be used towards the balance of your future reservation at Three Blacksmiths. Please note, each new reservation will garner a new deposit. Reservations can be rebooked through our reservation grid only. The gift card will be good for two years from the date of issue. Use this link to cancel an existing booking by logging into your profile. ​ Seven days (7) or fewer days before your booking time: You forfeit your deposit. This policy also applies to a reduction in the size of your party and to reservations booked within this seven-day window. To avoid being charged your balance due, please email us at reservations@threeblacksmiths.com a minimum of 48 hours before your reservation. Cancellations are only valid once we confirm we've received your message. 48 Hours Before Your Reservation (or if you do not arrive for your reservation): ​ You are responsible for the full balance of your dinner. This policy applies to both a late cancellation, as well as a reduction in the size of your party, so please be sure to let us know ahead of time if someone in your party will not be joining you. ​ If your credit card is declined for balance payment on the day of your reservation and you have not confirmed that you are coming, we reserve the right to cancel your booking, retain your deposit, and open your table to other guests. We’d much rather serve you a meal than charge a fee, but please understand that our small size, fine ingredients and rural location all add up to a significant loss for empty seats that we’re unlikely to fill on short notice.
  • Increase or Decrease in Party Size
    Once you've booked your reservation, the number of guests in your party is fixed, so you'll need to email us to increase or decrease your party size. Here's how it works: Increase Party Size: If the configuration of our dining room allows it, we're happy to increase your party size. Just email us and ask. You'll receive a revised confirmation if we can do it. Decrease Party Size: Our ability to reduce your party size depends on three factors: how much advance notice we have, how many guests won't be coming and the configuration of our dining room for the evening. If it's five days or less before your reservation: Your deposit for the absent guest(s) won't be refunded (see Cancellation Policy). If it's more than five days before your reservation: We'll do our best to move you to a different table, but we reserve the right to cancel your reservation entirely if the dining room configuration doesn't allow the change.
  • Dietary Restrictions
    We’re able to accommodate most dietary restrictions and allergies, including gluten intolerance, but keep in mind that our small kitchen is not gluten-free or free of any other potential food allergens such as nuts or shellfish. At this time we do not offer a dairy-free or vegan menu option. If you have multiple restrictions or life-threatening allergies, please contact us by email or at (540) 987-5105 before booking your table. Also, be sure to specify the dietary restrictions (if any) of everyone in your party when booking your table. Last minute menu changes are extremely difficult and we’d hate for anyone to miss out. We cannot guarantee dietary accommodations less than five days prior to your reservation.
  • When are New Reservations Released?
    Bookings become available at 10 am exactly 203 days in advance. Use this handy calculator to subtract 203 days from the date you want, so you know when it'll open on our reservation grid.
  • Wait List
    If a date you want is already full, you can sign up for the wait list through our reservation system. The icon appears at the top and bottom of the reservation grid (and pops up automatically when there's no availability). Once you sign up, you'll be notified by email (along with anyone else on the waiti list) if a table has re-opened. The table will go to the first person to log into our reservation system and confirm the booking. Joining the wait list won't notifiy you of tables that are newly opened on our reservation system - only those that are available to re-book.
  • ADA Accessibility
    We have an ADA designated parking space that can be made available in front of the building, a single level entrance, and an ADA bathroom. If you have a disability, let us know in advance of your visit so we can reserve the parking space for you as well as provide you with the most suitable table.
  • Parking
    We have off-street parking for seven normal cars plus one spot for smaller vehicles and one spot for wheelchair access, and our good friends at Before & After down the street also have a parking lot for our guests to use. Please park neatly so everyone gets a spot!
  • Dress Code
    There’s no dress code at Three Blacksmiths and while we want to make your meal a special event, we also want you to be comfortable. Guests usually wear a range from smart casual to special date night attire.
  • Bad Weather
    If the National Weather Service issues a weather warning for our region, we’ll be closed for the evening and we’ll work with you to reschedule your dinner with us. We'll be sure to communicate with you if messy weather is in the forecast. If we're not closed, but you'd rather stay off the roads because of potentially hazardous weather, please give us as much notice as possible so we'll have an opportunity to re-book your table. In this situation, we'll issue you a full refund if we're able to re-book your table.
  • Neighborhood Bars and Breweries
