Stopped off at the Fox & Hounds mid afternoon after fantastic walk over from Buckden via the Pike. Muddy boots off at the door, fair enough. No other customers. A small log fire not large enough to heat the room. TV news on in the corner. Landlord on his I-pad. My partner and I ordered cheese sandwiches each, chips to...

The landlord would hear nothing of his beer being off. Being a favorite of mine, Timothy Taylors 'Landord' was on offer at a whopping £4 a pint. I could have swallowed that if the beer was swallowable. Alas, it would have been better put on chips. Yes we could have made a song and dance about it. But the landlord...

Called whilst walking on a freezing cold day thinking we'd see a roaring fire and have some hot soup. Unfortunately we got a miserable landlord, beer (which was going off) and over priced at £4 a pint in a freezing cold pub although was a very small fire (1 small log burning). However the soup was very good. Then we...

Mike and Eileen did us proud when a dozen of us got together to celebrate a 70th birthday. The decorations and atmosphere were brilliant and everyone appreciated the good food , beer and excellent service.

Stayed at the Fox and Hounds for one night. Read the reviews and was expecting the worst. Turns out its a great pub and the landlord was a pleasure to be with, no problems at all. The evening meal was good and the breakfast set us up for the day. Dont know how he has got this reputation of being...

A cosy, characterful building in a beautiful Dales setting. Sounds like a recipe for the perfect pub? -Wrong! The landlord's utter contempt for mankind in general and his customers in particular is manifested in everything from his unwelcoming manner and the cynical tone of his conversation to the erratic opening hours and the overpriced, badly kept beer. Within a couple...

Enjoyed a perfect night here when passing through on the dalesway, Saturday 30th July. Both our meals were excellent sitting out in the beer garden and after pitching our tent we returned for a warming courvoisier. Landlord was very friendly and welcoming and would love to return, good Yorkshire pub, seemed popular too with locals.

Location a beautiful picturesque village, the pub is just overflowing in character. The landlord was very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the cider was perfectly cold and my excellent glass of red wine at room temperature.

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...
