Second time at this pub owned by a well regarded butcher from nearby Newbury. Menu isn't enormous (not necessarily a bad thing) but they do pub classics very well. Portions are on the large side...I have a good appetite but struggled to do justice to my rack of ribs. All the party loved their food. Some decent beers and prompted... More

I was fortunate to choose a main course that matched the description on the menu, unlike other members of the party, but they were out of the listed dessert and didn't tell me. Nor did they offer to take it off the bill. Several other items were also off, and the staff seemed to regard this as something clients should... More

Came here to celebrate a family birthday and we were welcomed so warmly. The staff are fantastic, friendly and so helpful. We visited with three children and they didn't mind the children playing dominos or Jenga (supplied there) so really family friendly. Our food was absolutely delicious and I recommend this so highly. Will be back to eat here again... More

Stopped off at the service off the M4 with my dad for a catch-up and searched on TripAdvisor and just down the road we found the Fox & Hounds lovely staff and lovely food. The only feedback of note was we weren't sure if we should get up to pay or pay at the table and neither did the table... More

The fox and hound had a great food selection to say the least but let's start at the beginning. The entrance is inviting and the cozy little bar has a real country pub feel to it, great atmosphere and warm to boot! The seating area for the restaurant is spacious and well contained with some nice prints on the wall... More
