The hotel is located in a peaceful scenic village with lots of heritage and culture including a 14th century church. Service is great, the food is excellent and the locals are friendly. I would recommend staying here.

Visited for Sunday lunch with all the family. It was a very sunny day so we chose to dine outside. We had an excellent lunch , served by very pleasant staff. We all had a great meal and fantastic desserts. We then walked to the nearby 17th century church (200 yards from the restaurant), as recommended by the staff. What... More

Stayed just overnight while visiting Barry. Arrived a bit early but room was ready. Nice big room with settee and coffee table as well as the usual bed etc. Stairs would be a problem for the infirm but room spotless. Ate in the restaurant in the evening and food and wine was excellent, well presented and tasty. Staff and owners... More

A friend and I had booked a table for midday (opening time) as a stop off on a circular walk we were doing. We arrived by 11.30 and sat in a covered area at the back of the pub expecting to wait 1/2 an hour before being seen to. The waitress came out almost straight away and offered us drinks... More

7 of us stayed here over the May bank holiday for the European rugby cup finals in Cardiff. Everything was great, good food, comfy and quiet rooms, warm welcome, decent real ale and even with a £40 minibus taxi into Cardiff it was still cheaper to stay at The Fox and Hounds than one of the chains in the city...

After staying in January for the first time every time I visit I stay here. Good is excellent, rooms are fantastic and John and Sue really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Anyone visiting wales / Cardiff for business or short break should book here and not use the big chains. Rural setting but close to... More

Went looking for a midweek lunch and decided to make the trip to Llancarfan as it was somewhere I had not been in many years and remembered being impressed by the Fox & Hounds. First thing to note about this pub is that it is far more restaurant than pub, with fully laid tables, white linen napkins and a fairly... More

Llancarfan is a picturesque village, with a river ford, in the SE of the Vale of Glamorgan, close to Cardiff. The pub has a stone walled dining room and an ambitious menu, with several choices of fish. The food is beautifully cooked and the portions filling: I had the tartiflette, made with brie, which was sensational. Sensible prices, therefore great... More

I have eaten at the Fox and Hounds on many occasions and so I knew there would be a god menu including many specials. We were welcomed by Sue who showed us to our table. There is a good wine list so I found a nice red. The food is always delicious and there are always generous helpings. My birthday... More
