Lovely evening spent here with live music as a bonus! Both restaurant and bar staff were welcoming and friendly. Although it was very busy service was prompt and helpful. A varied menu with a good range of local produce to choose from. Wild mushroom starter was delicious and the sirloin steak was very good too. Couldn't resist the bread and... More

This place relies solely on passing trade. It used to be a nice local pub but has definitely lost that feel now. The refurbishment was needed and looks good but they are appealing to visitors from now on which is a shame. If you read the other reviews on here most of them are from anywhere but the local areas.... More

Since its refurbishment I have eatten and had drinks here a number of times. I feel the decor is fantastic and caters for all ages. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. We arrived with 2 young children for a meal before 6. Our drinks order was taken at the table and they came to give us the specials before... More

Lovely Sunday dinner with family & a nice mulled wine. Didn't like the rosemary hint on my beef :-( Not the best table by the toilet though!!

The drinks and ambience are great but the food as pretensions to being better than it is. Pulled pork was tasteless, a burger could not be cooked medium-rare, a fish dish was overcooked. More attention to detail is needed.

Thank you for reviewing your recent meal with us and I'm sorry everything did not live up to expectations. We do try to offer something a little bit special and I can see we missed the mark on this occasion. My team were right with regards to the our burgers, but there's no excuse for anything to be overcooked and... More

We dined here on a cold, windy, Saturday night in January and were pleased to get a table without having booked. We did enjoy our meal and the general atmosphere in the pub. Both main courses (fish and chips/venison pie) and the dessert (pomegranate and mandarin sundae) were tasty and well-presented and, of course, the wine and Fullers beers (HSB... More

We visited the Fox & Hounds for a late lunch after looking for options online and weren't disappointed. The staff were very helpful and polite and the food was great, with portion sizes for a big appetite...so much so that only one of us managed to eat everything. I would definitely come back here when back in the new forest... More
