My husband and I went for Sunday Lunch at the Fox & Hounds on 1st Feb and all I can say is that if this restaurant was near where I lived I would be going there at least once a week - I thought it was one of the best 3 course lunches I have ever had - made the... More

This place is lovely. Recently refurbished and just gorgeous throughout. Lovely bar area with a log fire, comfortable armchairs, sofas and friendly staff. Also there is a great little library area if you fancy a quiet drink. The restaurant is EXCELLENT! I have eaten here a few times now and have never been disappointed. If you want a lovely meal...

I remember this place from many years ago when it was an old fashioned village pub. I hate to think how much the new owners have spent on refurbishing the building, but all I can say is that it was most certainly worth it. The ambiance is excellent and to walk into the intimate and cosy bar with its comfortable... More

We came in for a light lunch. Beautiful place and food was excellent, however it would have been more fitting to have it in the pub area than the restaurant (and we had the strong sense that the staff would have preferred that too). Unfortunately the pub only has a couple of small tables, that were occupied, and the rest... More

Some of the other reviews of this hotel have described the ambience of the rooms as shabby chic; personally I would just call them shabby and in need of a good makeover, starting with a coat of paint. My room was very small, with hardly enough space to open my suitcase let alone sit anywhere except on the bed. Partly... More

We had 2 rooms for a 2 night break for our friends 40th birthday. Room no 2 was quite spacious compared with room no 3 which was a lot smaller, both rooms were very quaint but I'm sorry to say I think they could do with perhaps new carpets and linos in the bathrooms ( just a bit of tender... More

The Fox & Hounds is located in Exton a very beautiful village close to Europe's largest man made reservoir Rutland Water. It is quick and easy to travel to many local attractions as well as towns in the area like Oakham, Uppingham and Stamford. The hotel has nice rooms ( some of which need updating ) nice gardens with facilities... More

Called on Bank Holiday Monday. Service was nearly finished, but was offered the full menu. Sandwiches would have been more than adequate. Both mine and my partners food were piping hot and bursting with flavour. A hidden gem for itallian lovers. The service, food, staff and whole experience was wonderful.

Stayed Friday and Saturday night. We had room 3 which is the smallest double - anyone over 6ft tall will find the bed cramped, This is more than offset by the quality of the dining though, the food is simply superb and complimented by excellent beverages. Staff were always polite and helpful so made for a great stay. Finally the... More
