We called in on a busy Friday evening and were very pleased that we could find a table although we hadn't pre booked. The menu offered some really interesting options and we chose haddock goujons and the mushroom and tarragon pate to start, followed by the swordfish and the venison medallions. The main course dishes were slightly overdone but we... More

On a visit to Danby we decided to venture out to the Fox and Hounds Inn. A lovely cosy welcoming place with a roaring fire. Which seems very popular with both locals and visitors alike. The food was delicious. The drinks were very reasonably priced too. We felt so comfortable here that we stayed for about 5 hours! We must... More

This is the second time my family and I have stayed in Hillsover cottage attached to The Fox and Hounds. There are 7 of us and whilst the cottage looks small there is plenty of room so were not on top of each other! It is clean and very well kitted out to ensure a comfortable break. We are self...

Called in here twice during our week in the North Yorkshire Moors area. First time we just had drinks but looked at the menu and decided to return the next day for lunch. There is a large bar area with a log fire and there is a good choice of beers including Theakstons. This is very busy part of the... More

Stopped here on our way back from Whitby for a bite to eat and was very pleased. We ordered Beef sandwiches and that came with a healthy portion of chips and salad. It was absolutely lovely and a welcome break. Don't drive by thinking there is something better as this place is very good and welcoming.

We stayed here over the valentines weekend, lovely setting and scenery, friendly staff on arrival, room was nice and cosy, we were booked to eat in the restaurant in the evening but ended up just ordering bar snacks instead as the restaurant area looked dead. Dissapointing part for us was the bar area on a night, not very comfortable with... More

We stayed for a social evening with friends and colleagues, great atmosphere, food and service at a very reasonable price. The room was very comfortable and we will definitely stay again. The location is stunning, especially on a crisp winters morning.

The weather forecast was for snow but we did not cancel and so pleased we didnt. We had a lovely weekend. Arriving in the middle of the afternoon the bar was open and there was a lovely log fire burning. We were escorted to our room which was a nice touch.. We had lovely views from two windows.
