Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came here for a pint mid bike ride and, just for that, I can’t fault it. Friendly staff, good old fashioned pub feel, beer garden, decent pint. What more could you want? It does seem more of a local pub for local people but that...adds to the charm.More

Menu was limited, but we expected that and didn't mind. We ordered Singapore Noodles, Lasagne and Classic Burger. The young Man serving us couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. He was a Star. We waited 43! Minutes for the Food to arrive and then...2 of the Dishes were awful. The Lasagne wasn't hot and the Pasta sheet at the bottom was dry. The Salad was wilted. The Beefburger was overcooked, even black and hard. The Singapore Noodles tasted lovely, but for a Main Course there was very little. It is a lovely Pub, but really! needs to do better!More

To all the staff at The Fox & Hounds, I just want to say a BIG thank you to each and everyone of you that made our visit really special. We celebrated my sisters birthday and from the moment we walked in we felt really...welcome. There was a birthday card on our table from the staff , our waiter was delightful and when the chef came out with a surprise birthday cheesecake and sang happy birthday, that was just brilliant and so unexpected! All your little touches made the evening perfect and the food was delicious too. I can highly recommend this pub and restaurant and if the opportunity arose, we would definitely return.More

We popped into this place as we had not been in a while. I was the only person at the bar when I arrived and there was no member of staff available to serve so I waited my turn and fully expected to be served...when the bar person arrived back. A “Local” subsequently joined me at the bar after a few minutes and when the bar lady arrived back she went straight to serve him first and then shouted to another local , who wasn’t even waiting at the bar to see if he wanted another beer and after this she served another round of drinks to another couple who where seated. So after I had been the only person at the bar she served three people in front of me. I ordered some food and was told it would be 30 mins but turned out to be 50 mins and it was not that busy. The bar lady, when she served us, was very friendly and polite. It is clear that if you are a local then you will get priority service and great attention. I was made to feel like an afterthought.More

A great stop just 5 mins off the M6 toll to grab a snack and a drink. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. I didn't eat the food so I can't comment on the food but it looks decent. Far better than stopping at a horrible...service station.More

We visited this pub in March 2019 and had a lovely meal about 3 weeks before it's food hygiene rating dropped from a 5 to a 1 and we had a lovely meal. We decided to go there again last night to see whether the...pies were still as good and we were surprised to be the only people in there eating. We had a sharing platter starter which was ok, some parts lovely others not so but the pub prides itself on it's pies. We both had chicken, ham and leek pie and it was lovely, hot and fresh. My hubby had chips and I had mash both of which were hot and very tasty. It's a shame that the food hygiene rating is driving diners away and I do hope that they get their troubles sorted. I generally won't eat anywhere will a food hygiene rating lower than a 4 but I'm glad I took a chance because I those pies are amazing!More
