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.

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

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...

Delicious food. Chef and staff couldn't do enough for us. One night we were the only people eating, but they were so attentive, it felt special.

We stayed on a 2 night Groupon deal in January 2015. In short I think this is the best place we have ever stayed! We had a 2 day break from the children but took our faithful lab who was welcomed as well as we were! A dog pack with local walks, bags and a treat was given on arrival.... More

They clearly have a very good chef - menu is varied, food well-cooked, excellent service. We've also been here for the Sunday carvery, which is excellent value for money. Dog friendly in the bar, though not in the restaurant (menu is the same in both, I think). Nice walks along the river behind the hotel, and a stunning tree house!

No dislikes (although a swimming pool would be good!). Likes: food, accommodation, staff, everything!
