We popped in on Sunday evening for just a main course. Several items on the Menu were unavailable as they had run out as they had apparently had a busier weekend than they had expected. This was a pity as the items unavailable included the roast chicken, rump steak & mixed grill / all of which would have been top... More

Have been here before and it has always been a very good experience. There are 7 of us and it is nice to have a round table so we can talk to each other easily. The food is great and very reasonable. We are always served at the same time and it is also hot. Will come again.

I came here with high expectations, and I was surprised with the quality of the food. For classic pub food, the Fox & Hounds tops them all! I have given this Review 4/5 because I unfortunately was served by a slightly rude male staff member. Who answered me in a very sarcastic tone which I was not happy about.

We were part of a larger group, but my wife was the only person who ordered Sea Bass Fillets. She had eaten them before at other branches of Ember Inns and enjoyed them. This time they were dry and tasteless clearly either over cooked or kept warm for too long, a big disappointment. She did not complain as this would... More

The food is not fresh - it all comes out of a bag and is pre-frozen. Please don't eat here. Service is okay though.

Not too bad a pub that is conveniently located for a rest stop on the way to Brighton. Food is pretty good as is the beer.

We only live around the corner and don't really frequent the Fox & Hounds. However, we had family visiting and were feeling lazy so nipped around the corner for Sunday Lunch. It was a great decision. The Fox & Hounds is not a gastro pub, but it serves good Sunday roasts at incredibly reasonably prices. We had four adults and... More
