Description: At the Fox & Hounds, the atmosphere & service is friendly & informal with select local beers & a choice of continental lagers & great wines. Diners have the option of eating award-winning Chef, James Rix' sophisticated, but simple menu in the bar, lounge, or the superb chandeliered dining room. In the summer months, you can enjoy eating on our heated, covered terrace. All our steaks are now cooked on the Josper oven, along with whole fish, squid, scallops in their shell and mussels. Our whole ribs of beef for Sunday lunch are also finished in the oven. The oven keeps fish really juicy - it cooks fish rapidly with great flavour & keeps flesh moist as well as enhancing the flavour of our steaks from the sweetness of the charcoal.

Came here for a family gathering and really enjoyed our Sunday lunch. They were very accommodating to our 11 month old daughter and her chicken dish they prepared for her was fantastic. Very good quality and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend this pub as one to come to with young children. The adults' food was also top notch, with a very generous portion size across the board. Overall, a very good lunch -- at over £20/head for two courses, it's not overly cheap, but you get what you pay for.

We went to the Fox & Hounds twice so far and both times the food was absolutely delicious and the staff very friendly. Would always go again for a meal for two or a family lunch.

Have had a few meals here over the years and the food is consistently good. The chef is the owner and he clearly knows a thing or two about food and the wine list is good too which sounds simple enough but many pubs get it wrong. Service is friendly and informal which suits the place, definitely worth a visit

Had a family Sunday lunch here. Food was excellent. Roast beef can often be not so good - either over cooked or tasteless. Here it was excellent. Remember thinking it was exactly what roast beef should taste like. Rest of the family had a variety of dishes and were very pleased. Will return.

Negatives - not many. At the top end of prices for a pub and, given the top end prices, perhaps the furniture in the dining room is a little worn.

We went there on a busy Friday night. Greeted with a smile, we had a drink at the bar before we were seated in the dining room. The wine list was extensive with plenty of choice by the glass. My husband had the black pudding followed by the pork (very large portion, crackling was 'perfect'), I had the goats cheese salad followed by the trout. Again a large portion with a lot of flavour. Well worth the price. We would definitely go again and will be recommending to family and friends.
