GREAT FOR BILLY NO MATES

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... read 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.

We popped in Fox & Hounds for a bite to eat whilst visiting the New Forest. It was the log fire that pulled us in and we were delighted to discover friendly, welcoming staff and great pub food at a reasonable price. There was a mix of couples and families inside and a nice, welcoming atmosphere. The perfect way to... More

Try it now- still got the charm but it has been lavished with tlc. Abrand new farmhouse cafe in that unused bar on the right. Lots of lovely little touches throughout. Still a... More

The pub had a lovely atmosphere. A really good band was playing on the night we were there so enjoyed that. It was just the food and service that let it down. Menu very limited. My husbands sea bass was really small and my ham extremely fatty. Such a shame as I had been before and raved about it to... More

What more do you want? Good food? Well you won't be disappointed. In my view its a perfect pub in the heart of the Village and we were made very welcome by the host every time we stepped through the door. If you love a good pint of Ale, it's the place for you.

Well worth a visit after a nice stroll through the village. The décor is cosy, the food was great, prices not bad either.
