We had our Christmas party there and everything was in good order. Highly recommended and very good value for money. The Rioja was one of he best. Congratulations to Nigel and his team.

“Nice food..but expensive...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We visited this pub on a Saturday night, it was busy but not full. Nice a bright surroundings, clean and modern. The menu is varied with some interesting specials. The portion sizes were large and well presented. The prices were a little on the high side.

We ordered a beer and a glass of wine with the meal. When the bill arrived it was apparent that they had served us a large wine at £6!!! I think they should ask first if you want a large measure.

The service was quick, maybe a little too quick.

“Pleasant village pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I visited the Fox and Hounds for a business lunch with a colleague on a Thursday lunchtime. We had a pint each of well-kept "Old Golden Hen", which was a lovely drop. I had a steak sandwich and my colleague had a burger with chips and trimmings. The food was brought to our table very soon after ordering, the portions were generous. I saw a sign outside advertising this as a "Gastropub", so I feared that the food would be very expensive, but this was not to be. The entire meal with drinks was only just over £13 for the two of us. The staff were very polite and helpful, too.

“Stunning Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

We go to this restaurant on a very regular basis and cannot sing their praises enough.

The food is brilliant, service swift and what makes it for me is the staff - they are so friendly and attentive to your every need.

Thanks to all of you at the Fox & Hounds and see you soon.
