“Good food in a friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

I booked a table in this pub/restaurant because of the favourable reviews on this site, and we had a lovely evening. We were a party of 5, and we were all delighted with our food. Our choice of starters ranged from carrot and coriander soup, black pudding, mussels and smoked salmon, and the steaks that most of us ordered for the main course were tender and cooked as we wanted. The wine list is well-priced, and we had an excellent Chilean cabernet sauvignon for about £15. The service was friendly and attentive, and we were left to enjoy the meal at a relaxed pace.

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING SUNDAY ROAST1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

Went with family for a 70th birthday celebration. All of us travelled over an hour to get here, but wanted to try it after reading the reviews. 4 of us had the beef, served rare with the most amazing gravy, al dente vegetables and light Yorkshire pudding, 1 of us had roast leg of Yorkshire lamb. We all said it was the best Sunday roast we had eaten for many years. For desserts we had bread and butter pudding with brandy and marmalade cream, and chocolate and toffee brownie, again these were delicious and very well presented. With drinks for the 5 of us including coffee £94.50, really good value too. Special mention too for the staff, they make you feel so welcome and are so helpful. They know the food they serve is good and are damn proud of it and so they should be!

“Would recommend the Fox & Hounds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

Quiet country pub in a nice location. Staff and service were excellent. Beer (Timothy Taylors) was spot on. We had the Black pudding and Tomato and Basil soup for starters. The soup was very good and the Black Pudding was the best my partner had ever sampled. Sirloin and Rib Eye steaks for the main course were perfect but I would have liked them bigger. Also the veg helpings were measly. My sweet was the apple crumble and custard which I thoroughly enjoyed. My partners Brownie however, was tiny and quite tasteless. PLeassant atmosphere. Not too pricey.

“Definitely worth making a special journey.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

We had no idea that such a good dining experience was just outside Wetherby until we stumbled upon this pub. It looked pleasant from the outside so we went in for Saturday lunch. Inside more of a restaurant atmosphere with a wide choice of dishes and also local beers. Set menu available at lunch time as well as a la carte and specials. Really good quality, interesting food; vegetarian choices. Friendly staff.
Car park slopes quite steeply!
