“Great family meal”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Visit to The fox and hounds inn on November 24th and I was very impressed with the menu and the general ambience. Great value for money, excellent £10 bottles of wine on offer, Service was top class - This was followed by an over generous portion of chocolate baileys cheesecake which was to die for! A definite recommendation.

“Sunday supper”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

My partner decided to pop out for a meal with my daughter whilst I was working as we had been out all day.
What a good decision it was as they had a great meal of roast lamb & pork which was cooked to perfection all served with a great selection of veg & lashings of tasty gravy.
Although they were full they shared a delicious portion of baileys cheesecake.
A tasty meal good value with staff that welcomed you warmly & nothing was too much trouble, it was service with a smile all the way!!! Highly recommend.

“Awful Sunday Roast-Tough lamb gristle”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Went there Sunday 24th November and pub was very busy but that's no excuse for the lousy Sunday roast we had. The last time we visited we sent the pork back because it was fat and gristle. This time we had starters of whitebait which could be best describes as luke warm. The lamb was gristle and tough and we left it and complained to the waitress who just smiled and swept away the plates. No apology. The vegetables were nearly cold. Never to be repeated. A complete waste of a lot of money.

“Good Village Pub.”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

After a number of visits which proved hit and miss, this pub has finally got it right. Food and portions great, great menu, excellent curry, staff still need a bit of training, bar waiting times can be a bit long, would be nice to get a welcome. Hopefully that will come. Still well worth a visit!

“A gem on our doorstep!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Although only recently moved to the village I have visited this pub on a number of occasions in the past.

New owners (also have The Bell, Yatton Keynell) earlier this year have transformed the venue and it is now a wonderful place to visit for a drink or to eat.

Loads of specials and food is always perfectly cooked and served. The warmest of welcomes is given to everyone - not just locals (which is not always the case with village pubs!). I can't begin to recommend particular dishes because I love being tantalised by reading through the extensive specials menu and treating myself to something different on each visit. A great touch is the "takeaway fish and chips/curry menu", so if you don't have time to dine in, try that for a change.

The sign of a good village pub is how many locals use it. This one is certainly busy with local residents. Excellent cellar (there speaks an ex-publican) and a great wine list too. How spoiled am I ?
