The Fox and Hounds restaurant and hotel in Eggesford, Chulmleigh, is set in grounds bordering the River Taw in the heart of the Devon countryside. This family-owned hotel and restaurant is a delightful and unpretentious spot for meals and riverside walks before or after. The dining room, decorated in tones of cream and chocolate with fresh flowers and white table linens, has a smart, relaxed ambience. The menu features the freshest, most seasonal local produce imaginable, with special emphasis on three choices of superb Devon steaks as well as game in season. Sunday lunch features live jazz monthly and it’s a local favourite.

Interesting menu, attentive staff and well presented food. I had the smoked haddock 'scotch egg' for starter - a soft-boiled egg wrapped with a haddock mix and coated in breadcrumbs. It tasted nice, but the egg was stone cold. I chose steak for the main, which I asked for medium, most of which was cooked perfectly, but was undercooked in... More

Visited for a meal in the evening recently with family. The bar and dining area where we ate was lovely with a few nice local beers and ciders on offer. The food however was a bit hit and miss. The steak and fish and chips were a decent portion size and rather good. The other meals such as the chicken... More

We regularly visit the Fox and Hounds, either for a drink, a special occasion or the carver. It never disappoints and the food is always brilliant. At yesterdays carvery, my daughter only wanted yorkshire puddings with gravy and the hotel did everything to make sure she was happy - they're brilliant!

Visited this place for the first time today, taking parents who live locally to the hotel. The hotel is ideally situated on the A377 appxox 20 miles out from Exeter, so easily reachable from there. On arrival, we were warmly greeted and offered drinks to have in the bar, as we were a little early for the Carvery sitting. Once... More
