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.

At yesterdays carvery, my daughter only wanted yorkshire puddings with gravy and the hotel did everything to make sure she was happy - they're... read 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

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

From arriving to leaving this is a little piece of heaven in every way. Warm welcome from Gill on reception who also served me at the bar then the restaurant and again for breakfast. I thought she was the owner as she cared so much about my stay. Beautiful location, very clean, beds are far too comfortable (had an extra... More

My partner and I ate at the Fox and Hounds earlier this week. We've been here several times and the food never disappoints. Lots to choose from on the new menu, we had the Trencher Board for 2 and it was absolutely delicious! We ate in the bar area which has a lovely atmosphere and the service is always good,... More

Our party of eight friends stayed for 2 nights on a B&B & evening meal basis and were so glad we did as the evening meals were amazing. The first night I had a starter of Gratin of garlic butter scallops (Plymouth) spiced chorizo discs, olive tapenade then I shared a Chateaubriand for 2 which was a succulent centre-cut fillet...
