Located just 25 miles from Washington, DC, Clifton is the place that George Washington and Lord Fairfax hunted; the spot the Confederate and the Union met at throughout the Civil War; and the first town to have electricity in Virginia. This quaint destination’s historic Clifton Hotel, established in 1869, has experienced a re-birth.
Trummer's on Main was renovated in 2009 to incorporate modern interior with historic exterior. We are a fine dining restaurant with a focus on local creative cuisine. Executive chef Austin Fausett helms from the Inn at Little Washington and he will customize a menu to create a memorable experience for you and your guests. Our restaurant features a "Winter Garden" dining room which brings the outside in with a glass enclosed atrium feel and large paddle fans. There is an outdoor balcony with bar as well as a back patio. There is even a bridal suite for you to get ready in!

Wonderful Venue for a Perfect Wedding
We have eaten at Trummer’s several times over the past few years (in fact, we had dinner there the night we were engaged), and we’ve always loved this restaurant. When trying to think of places to hold our wedding, we were looking for something a little less traditional, and Trummer’s quickly became the only place on our list. I love their Winter Garden Atrium room, with its large bright windows and high ceilings, and the food and drinks here are just amazing. There are cheaper places, but for the 50-person wedding we were planning it worked out perfectly, and so much was included in the up-front pricing. We worked directly with Victoria Trummer during the entire planning process, and she was a joy to work with at every step. Our first meeting took place on an afternoon while they were setting up for another wedding; after seeing the room set up for a wedding and just after all of the flowers had been delivered, we instantly knew we’d made a great choice of venue.
Victoria was very helpful throughout the planning process, even when we were just getting started and didn’t have answers to many of her questions, she was very patient and understanding. She was extremely responsive to emails and provided suggestions on what we could do. We opted to handle our own reception playlist, so Trummer’s gave us direct access to their sound system and the speakers already in the room; we decided to make this a little more complicated by bringing in a Google Chromecast to hook up to the system, so we could make song/volume changes on-the-fly with a cell phone, and they were easy to work with to test this all out beforehand. The taste-testing to select appetizers, meals and the signature cocktail was outstanding, and almost certainly was the most fun part of our wedding planning.
We did hire a wedding coordinator/planner, and Trummer’s worked with them very well. The day of our wedding Victoria was away on vacation, but her staff made sure everything turned out perfect. They were able to store our flowers in the wine cellar the night before, and the ladies were able to get ready in the bridal room upstairs. Clifton provided a perfect backdrop for wedding photos, the Winter Garden room served as both our ceremony and reception venue, and their dining area/balcony hosted the cocktail hour. Overall, Trummer’s was the perfect venue for our wedding. So many of our guests commented on the wonderful food and the beautiful room (besides flowers and some candles provided by our florist, the decor was perfect as-is, so we didn’t feel the need to bring a lot of additional decorations or linens).

Victoria and her team were absolutely amazing! From before we chose Trummer's, the random trips we made to make sure the music would work, the tasting, and everything on the day of, Victoria was very responsive, patient, and flexible with us to make sure all the planning went smoothly. We had a tight timeline with getting hair,makeup, and photos all done before the ceremony, and she went out of her way to open the building earlier than normal to accommodate us. All of those positives and I haven't even gotten to the food yet. The food was delicious! This was one of the biggest reasons we chose Trummer's as we have eaten in their restaurant before and loved the food. Our guests could not stop talking about how great all the food was...and the best part is we now have the perfect place to come celebrate our anniversary! Thank you Victoria and staff for making our dream wedding come true!

Go look at the facilities in person. The size of your party will largely determine which room you use. And of course, so will availability.
Look at their wedding reception packages, then email the event coordinator . They are very willing to make all parts of the menu fit your desires. All the food is fabulous! All our guest felt special, and honored to be there. And we were very thankful Trummers helped us communicate our gratitude to each person attending.
A perfect place for your wedding at close-in Clifton, VA. The only little village that is authentic in the region, Trummer's is not only beautiful and improving all the time (except the food ... that CANNOT be improved), Clifton draws visitors who know about it on a daily basis. Trummer's is the highlight of Clifton. Victoria and her staff make sure everything is done perfectly. The ceremony location, the cocktail hour location and the dinner location could simply not be any better. Trummer's is the epitome of perfection, of wonderful food, of great service and of a very happy couple and their guests when the wedding is all over. You will never regret choosing Trummer's!
I can't even begin to say enough about Trummer's food and beverage selection. And to make it even better, they are an incredible spot for a wedding reception as well. You seriously cannot go wrong with Trummer's!
I've done a small wedding here, and I have to say...it's wonderful! Filled with cozy and historic character, and soooo charming! I'd definitely recommend! :-)
