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

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.
