Pub was almost empty after the main lunchtime rush. Great interaction with Chris - one of the bar staff. Only had a soup - this pub has a massive range of soups so you will easily be catered for. I chose - spicy parsnip - which was excellent but it does need at least a 2 chili health warning !!... More

We ate here as an alternative to the Toby Inn in Whitchurch and were pleasantly surprised to find it had day-specials in addition to the standard WA Brains pub menu. Our meals were hot and tasty and the desserts were almost as good as home-made, so well done to the chef and crew. Washed down with a pint of Brains... More

Use the Fox and Hounds fairly frequently, more often than not on a Tuesday when there's 25% off the grills, food is invariably good and service not bad. If I do have a gripe (and this might be an age thing) it's being called "Mate"or the waiting staff referring to us as "Guys", and more annoyingly having to wait for... More

I have visited this pub a few times and have never had a bad meal. The fajitas were absolutely amazing and great value for money with plenty of meat. I've also had things from the two can dine, and the homemade specials board I'd recommend both. Sunday quiz nights and they have two tv's for both rugby and football. What... More

When your first experience of a pub is your sleeve sticking to the table you know you're not in for that much of a classy experience. First impressions weren't great, I think someone must have put a load of energy saving lightbulbs into the sockets because the lighting left the main area looking downright dingy. The staff were very polite... More

We visited the Fox and Hounds this evening for a cheap and cheerful dinner and we were not disappointed. Tuesday night is grill night so the other half had a steak at 25% off and I had the chicken. The steak was in parts a little more done than medium, but overall presentation and taste was very good. My chicken... More

Stopped in on the way to visit family. Great place to eat, food was served quickly, exactly as ordered and was very good. As pub food goes I'd recommend a visit

4 pickled onions and a withered treat size apple apparently! Hubby and I just called in for a midweek cheap and cheerful meal. Lets just say it wasn't cheap and we're not cheerful. We both opted for ploughmans one with ham terrine and one with cheese. Two pitiful plates of food arrived. Basically a side salad (no dressing). Some bread... More
