The fox and hounds is a unique dales pub. The landlord does not suffer fools hence the odd bad review. This is due to people who,are used to be waited on by people not able to give opinions ! Perhaps southerners We live in southport and have dined here for 15 years and would challenge anyone who could say they... More

After reading some negative reviews we were naturally reluctant to go there. However, as we were staying in Starbottom and it was so handy for us we decided to give it a go. We called in to get a menu to browse and chose our meals in advanc as we were a party of 12. Mike was very helpful and... More

A group of us stopped here for some drinks whilst we were on a long walk around Upper Wharfedale. We all sat outside and dutifully took off our boots after reading the sign on the door before going in. We stood waiting to be served whilst the landlord carried on his conversation with someone sitting at the bar. He was... More

Walked from Kettlewell to Starbottom on a very misty cold wet day in Jan. The pub was open (first day in Jan it has). The owner was a real moaner and extremly rude telling us we were lucky it was open as he never opens in January. He also said that he only keeps one beer on as he would... More

We went for a pint and lunch on Christmas Eve. I had read reviews prior, so wasn't surprised when the landlord was a grump, conversation was actually amusing, as my partner tried to chat, it went something like "bet this is one of the warmest winters you can remember", "not really", "don't you often get snow at this time of...

We walked down to the Fox and Hounds at Starbotton. Good start as we approached down the side of the pub as the lights were on and the Landlord was clearly seen by both of us stood behind the bar.

Stopped here halfway round on a walk from Kettlewell. We were pleased to find it open on a sunny day in October but our mood was brought down by the miserable landlord. Others have found his manner appealing but we both agreed that he is one of the most obnoxious and angry people that we have ever met. We later... More

Forewarned that the publican was prone to being taciturn, in true Yorkshire spirit, we found that whilst that was how he appeared initially in fact he was very warm and attentive. A group of elderly walkers is enough to put any innkeeper on his back foot but he was staunch in his attentiveness and as the lunch went on it... More
