Just been for a 3 course meal that cost £28.50. Firstly they demanded we pay in entirety (not just a deposit) before the day as we were a WI group so there was no changing your mind on the day. They didn't offer us drinks at the table.We had to walk to the bar to get our own. My

We are so very sorry to read about your disappointing experience and we have taken all your feedback to the relevant departments working that day. I am glad you enjoyed the beef and dessert but can see that the rest of the meal was not to your liking and not up to scratch. We have sent you a direct apology already immediately after the event along with a voucher by way of recompense which I am saddened to not see recognised in your account. I do feel also that for such strong comments some form of balance should be offered: With large groups we always request pre-payment which for 3 courses with tea or coffee included, we believe to be a competitive price.This avoids the confusion and delay of scores of guests attempting to pay at the same time at the end. Had we known this was problematic for you we could certainly have come to an arrangement. Regarding the specific points you raise there are a few comments I feel it right to point out. The terrine was freshly made the day before and chilled overnight. We take it out the fridge and it sits under our service lights as a stone cold terrine is not appealing however we appreciate this may not be to your taste. Our waitress should have dealt with your complaint immediately and offered an alternative and we are sorry this was not the case. There were 3 vegetables served with the beef which, as you say ,was a healthy portion and consisted of carrots, broccoli and red cabbage and we had extra available if requested. Sauces are usually brought on request to the tables along with extra gravy if required but only if asked for which is something we can review in our training with the front of house team. The pannacotta is a set milk pudding and had white chocolate crumb with it for texture along with the raspberry coulis and is usually one of our most popular desserts which was perhaps not to your taste rather than made poorly. There is no excuse for the lack of management on the occasion and we fully acknowledge further training is required with some of the more inexperienced team members. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we will be ensuring the team are equipped to manage complaints much better. We really are sorry you did not like your meal. When your business is slated online to millions of people it affects every individual in that company and in no other industry are we judged so harshly. We did not deliver a good level of service or product and wish to ensure you this is a very rare occurrence as our many 5 star reviews will attest to and we will all feel the effects of such disappointing feedback for many days to come

My (now husband!) and I booked the "Everything You've Dreamed Of" wedding package, and who knew that the saying 'living the dream' actually existed? I didn't, until our wedding day at Fox and Hounds on Saturday 30th June. Tara and the team had been phenomenal throughout 18

Was gifted a 3 day break at the Fox by my sister. Everything was superb as it was 4 years ago! The staff could not have been more professional or friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely food and the most relaxing place to spend a few days break.

My Fiancee booked a night away for us (and the dog!) after the Christmas stress-and before our wedding plans are in full steam (we are getting married here in the Summer!) Our room was amazing, just enough modern touches without losing the charm of a country hotel. Dinner in

We returned to the Fox and Hounds for a 3 night Christmas break and have to say both the food and service were exceptional. The staff are always so welcoming and seem to genuinely care about you as a customer. Christmas dinner was delicious. I really can not fault our experience
