The fox and hound had a great food selection to say the least but let's start at the beginning. The entrance is inviting and the cozy little bar has a real country pub feel to it, great atmosphere and warm to boot! The seating area for the restaurant is spacious and well contained with some nice prints on the wall... More

We live very close to the Fox and Hounds but had never visited it so when we were looking for somewhere to eat for 7 of us for Sunday lunch we thought we'd give it a try. Our initial impression on arrival was good. The place was clean and, on a wet windy Sunday in February seemed warm, cosy and... More

Food was delicious, staff were very friendly and the place is just really cosy and welcoming. Has a great little bar area with open fire and the restaurant area is well sectioned to... More

It was a treat to be able to eat at this restaurant 2 nights in a row. There are many beers and ciders on tap and this place seemed to be very popular with the locals. Since the owner is a butcher, all beef served here are incredibly fresh. For the money you get great food and great service. At... More
