When the opportunity arose for a new restaurant at Broadlands, just west of Dulles Airport in Loudoun County, Virginia, it became an ideal chance to create a truly unique destination for dining.
When Clyde's Restaurant Group purchased a number of antique heavy timber buildings destined for demolition in the 1980s, Clyde's Willow Creek Farm was not even a twinkle in John Laytham’s eye. These structures were disassembled and put in storage, with no clear plan for their use. Today, Willow Creek is inviting and comfortable, stunningly decorated with original artwork, sculpture, historic artifacts and an over-the-top collection of museum quality 18th century horse-drawn carriages - most strung from the ceilings lined with solid timber struts.
Built in 1885, this amazing Victorian beauty is a 40’ x 84’ post and beam originally built for hay, feed, and stock. What was once a home for milking cows and horse stalls is now a dining room filled with whimsical weathervanes.
