Nice pub with good food.

A little more than typical pub grub with a good menu and great service. Tasty food well presented. Good choice of beer (Fullers pub). Give it a try if you are in the area. They have quiz nights and live music on at various times.

Dropped into the Fox and Hounds whilst visiting the New Forest on a recent break one Thursday evening. Food was delicious, but service could’ve been better. Initially we waited at the bar to order drinks and we were ignored several times by the manager/assistant manager (shortish woman, brown hair with glasses) who seemed far more eager to chat and joke...

Went here a few months ago for dinner, the food was okay, better than average but I wouldn't say great. Not a bad place to go though.

Visited July 2015 Situated in Lyndhurst Village, the lovely pub has real character and serves even better food! I opted for the poached egg starter which was brilliantly presented and was tasty albeit marginally salty. They ran out of lamb that day so I went for the chargrilled swordfish- again well cooked. Friendly waiting staff and pleasant ambiance. Would highly... More

Amazing beer, great wines (great wine glasses too). Staff are extremely friendly. Food is average for a pub but Burger and Pint night on a Tuesday is incredible!

In lyndhurst itself, the fox & hounds was a pleasurable dining experience rekindling those memories of a traditional pub food meal but with an added modern twist. For starters you had plenty of interesting selections. I opted for the tiger prawns which were cooked perfectly and importantly seasoned well. I have been to other places where they have over salted... More

Very deceiving from the front, this pub has a wonderful garden to the rear. Lots of seating, child and dog friendly during the day. Service is very good, and being a Fullers pub, the quality of the drinks selection and the food is as you would hope. We went in on Friday afternoon for a couple of drinks and didn't... More

My 2 children and I loved this great pub/restaurant in Lyndhurst and had a great evening with fabulous food and atmosphere. Menu to suit all tastes including children - my 2 girls loved the burgers in brioche buns with tasty fries! I had the fish and chips which was heaven with lovely chunky chips. Then, rather than have any of... More
