very good pub restaurant - worth another visit!

Popped in on travelling past for a late lunch, but got a little indulgent! We had intended a quick working lunch, but with great starters, excellent mains and rum and raisin ice cream to follow, it stretched a little. Good friendly and helpful service. Easy parking.

The roast potatoes were very very old- weird musty taste- didnt eat mine-think they had been left for a couple of days not put on the counter - they are not expensive to throw away at the end of the day. The meat was lovely by the way!

Visited for lunch with my partner and mother. Good menu with plenty of choice. Food arrived quickly and was excellent. Nicely presented and well cooked. Staff were friendly. Would not hesitate to return.

The Fox and Hounds is a lovely traditional English country pub that seems to be frequented by locals and those wishing to travel alike. We phoned at 1pm for a 2.30pm booking for the carvery on a Sunday and were allocated a table in the bar area as it was quite busy. The bar has a good selection of local... More

The food we had here for lunch was very nice. Fish and chips, muscles and a selection of sandwiches all went down exceptionally well. It isn't amazing value bit if you're happy to pay a little more, the food is nice. I must say that despite several members of staff, service at the bar was slow and it took even... More

The car park was full on arrival and had to park elsewhere. The pub itself is nice and even though busy has a nice atmosphere. The service at the bar was poor due to either having their mates in or regulars as the conversation continued while serving. Felt like I was an inconvenience. We chose the the carvery and I... More

We visited this nice old pub last Sunday and you can't deny the setting is lovely and the pub warm and welcoming with a big open fire. You also can't deny that it is busy (no room in the car park) so they must be doing a lot right, however I do think that they are relying on this reputation... More

Stopped on the off chance after a country walk on a freezing cold day. The place was heaving at 1.30 with only two tables left. We managed to acquire one by the well insulated door. I was feeling a bit over fed with meat after a meal out on Friday, so we both went for the Nut Roast after a... More

The Fox & Hounds is an old favourite and a. Particularly good place to enjoy a leisurely Sunday lunch on a cold winters days. The menu isn't extensive but there is enough choices to make it interesting but not confusing. I enjoyed a fantastic Nut Roast with all the trimmings including a Yorkshire Pudding (make sure you don't have breakfast... More

Stopped at the Fox and Hounds on the chance of getting a table for two at 3pm for the Sunday carvery. The pub was still very busy but with a nice buzz, we were seated fairly quickly and the staff were all extremely pleasant. Small carvery area which did cause quite a back up ( it was far worse when... More
