Living locally and previously a regular vistor to the Fox & Hounds, we have been very disappointed with the service, prices and menu since the take-over and refurbishment by Fullers. Having spoken with others living in the village, incidents like over-charging are not isolated and they may well find that once the 'singe-visit' holiday makers have all left at the... More

We stayed in Lyndhurst for 2 nights and ended up eating here both nights - the food was lovely, the setting welcoming and picturesque, and the staff were very friendly. Recommended.

The pub itself is lovely, however we were not too impressed with the food. My spare ribs were OK for starters, but my main dish, beef brisket was way overcooked it was supposed to be roasted for 12 hours - I didn't think it would taste like rubber. Service was attentive and there was a good atmosphere, so maybe we... More

Had a fantastic meal here with my partner. We ordered the pulled pork and the gourmet burger. Both delicious. Drinks a little pricey but think this is representative of the area.

Really can't make up my mind about the fox & hounds, the decor is stunning the staff are very very friendly but the menu is truly odd, very limited and as already noted several times a bit "style over substance" and ultimately disappointing, I can summarise this my saying they don't serve mayonnaise they serve mayonnaise flavoured with mustard, and...

We have been visiting the Fox and Hounds for many years and have always enjoyed our visits. In recent years, there had been a bit of a decline in standards so when the pub underwent this recent revamp, we decided to see what all the fuss was about. The staff are friendly, there has been an improvement in the layout... More

(09/08/14) After deciding on an impromptu lunch we happened upon the Fox & Hounds which is situated on the main high street. For a Saturday lunch time it wasn't overly busy, the decor was lovely & traditional & we were greeted by very smiley bar staff. They have a good selection of beers/ales and the food menu had some nice... More
