Highly recommended

Food was excellent from the delicious sandwiches at lunchtime to the "small plates " and venison casserole in the evening. Great atmosphere and we loved how the place had been refurbished since our last visit.

Have never eaten here but love the pub and it's lovely garden especially in summer. Nice selection of ales and food menu looks tempting, but normally visit just for a pint.

It actually turned out to be nine pounds so don't let that put you off. On arrival to the fox and hounds we entered into a... More

Taking friends to Southampton Airport from Bournemouth, we were looking for a place to stop for Sunday lunch, and stopped at the Fox & Hounds. Welcoming and warm environment with live music as we arrived. Food was great and was served quite quickly. Lovely atmosphere and great place to go with family and friends. Service was top notch!!!

Who likes eating on their own? Nobody. But having to stay, on business, in the area, The Fox and Hounds and her staff made me feel really welcome. The ale was well poured and was very good, and the food, chicken rotisserie (half) was superb. Next time I am in Lyndhurst I will definitely be coming back. Thanks guys, Very... More

Recently refurbished and run under the Fullers umbrella. Food very, very average. Anything above a lunchtime sandwich I would tend to avoid. Good for a drink, though, and a pleasant, helpful landlord.

Really welcoming pub, lovely staff and a great atmosphere with the fire going and a live band playing. Food was delicious and great portions for the cost. We were looked after really well by the staff in the restaurant and when we popped around to the bar for drinks after. Reasonable price and overall just a really nice place, would... More

Went to the fox and hounds whilst visiting the new forest. What a great atmosphere, live band, gorgeous food. So nice to have the restaurant slightly separate to the bar. Best pub we've been in the new forest. Lovely staff! Will return again for sure !! Open fire and the building had such character.
