I was served by staff who were uninterested. Got 2 potatoes and 2 roast potatoes. How stingy. Asked for more and we got dirty looks. Asked for ice with water and got dirty looks. Didnt have any soda. Had no lager or beer menus or they werent offered. It took ages to pay. Asked to pay. Took ages to bring bill. Then told we had to pay at bar when told we could pay at table. The young girl who served didnt have a polite or friendly disposition. I wouldnt go back

My husband and I eat here often and find the staff really helpful and the food is very good. The pub is very pleasant and the surrounding really nice.

we had a family meal here on bank holiday monday, it was a beautiful early evening so ate outside, nice little grassy park area for children to play and steep hill and steps up to the river and away from road so very safe for little ones.

The staff were lovely very helpful, the food was freshly prepared and cooked and was delicious, it was very clean and tidy and nicely laid tables and attention to detail and facilities faultless, do not have a dedicated baby change but spacious enough and mats provided in ladies.

the views lovely, very peaceful and relaxing a little gem definitely will be going again, we didnt have a dog with us but others did and they enjoyed being there and welcomed in the garden area x

Arrived at 2pm on Saturday to meet friends. We ordered drinks. Staff were very uninterested - it took them 15 mimutes to make us a pot of tea. My lime and soda was undrinkable - tasted like stale or river water and our son's glass was dirty. The staff would not change this glass and the seats and decor are very tired.

Myself & my family were recently staying at the nearby Rockliffe Hall Hotel & stumbled upon the Fox & Hounds by chance, we were very pleasantly surprised.
The food was excellent value for money, generous portion sizes & an extensive menu to choose from.
The service was good & we all left very happy (full!) customers, we wouldn't hesitate to return if we were ever in the area again.
