Went on recommendation. A big let down, nothing special. Food a big let down. Nice service but not match by the food. Very small portions, and not that good. The parfait was a joke, the shell fish soup extremely disappointing. Had to send the steak...More

As always wonderfully friendly welcome, open fires and a glass of a rhubarb gin fizzy delight! The food is always outstanding, it’s so difficult to choose from the outrageously delicious list of desserts but I did manage 😁

We've been eating at the Fox and Hounds for upwards of 15 years. I must confess that over those years we've had a couple of duff experiences. However, today we went to celebrate our birthdays. Once more they totally nailed it. While the staff front...More

At the Fox & Hounds, the atmosphere & service is friendly & informal with select local beers & a choice of continental lagers & great wines. Diners have the option of eating award-winning Chef, James Rix' sophisticated, but simple menu in the bar, lounge, or the superb chandeliered dining room. In the summer months, you can enjoy eating on our heated, covered terrace. All our steaks are now cooked on the Josper oven, along with whole fish, squid, scallops in their shell and mussels. Our whole ribs of beef for Sunday lunch are also finished in the oven. The oven keeps fish really juicy - it cooks fish rapidly with great flavour & keeps flesh moist as well as enhancing the flavour of our steaks from the sweetness of the charcoal.
