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.

The staff were friendly helpful and efficient from the moment we arrived. We ordered drinks at the bar and they brought them to us once we had found a table outside in the attractive garden. Unlike another pub I visited recently we were provided with table service despite being outside with everything being put on a tab. We were bought blackboards with the menu on, ordered and the food arrived in reasonable time . Mains and deserts were all well prepared and very tasty. We were also able to order more drinks from the table. Excellent service from the bar & restaurant staff.

Jordan and Mille were amazing. We came for a birthday and we were so well looked after. We forgot candles for the cake so Jordan held a lighter for us to blow out!! They even changed the music to a happy birthday song as we were the last people in the bar area, the food was excellent as well!!

Sunday carvery was one of the best we had. The meat was thickly sliced and portion very generous. No way could we eat up the meal and had plenty to take away. The staff who served us was very pleasant and cheery. Gammon was the best. Not salty and full of flavour. Highly recommended!

Myself and my partner always come here for food as the food is always incredible. We have never had a bad meal here. The steak is definitely the best in Northampton. Service is always incredible, staff are all friendly, welcoming and bubbly. Staff also like to have a chat and a laugh which is always a bonus and makes your experience further enjoyable Thank you to Kaitlyn, Cara, Sarah and Abi for your service as always!

Had an amazing Sunday Roast with all the trimmings in the warm, cozy restaurant area. Meat cooked to perfection, all vegetables freshly prepared and cooked but the Yorkshire puddings stole the show! Excellent service and very good value for money.

I dropped in with my family initially for a drink but when we looked at the menu we decided to get a couple of the sharing platters. They were presented really well & there was lots of food, it all was really tasty so we took what was left home. We were really impressed & will definitely eat there again. Thank you x

We booked a family meal for 10 people and provided our preorder to ensure we secured our preferred choice of roast dinner. Waiting staff were superb, attentive and really helpful, especially when asking for any specials, which the kitchen were trying. Meals were served promptly, with plenty of time between courses. Plates were hot and the food was really well presented on the plate aswell as tasting good. The roasts were big and everyone finished up the meals. Desserts were ordered, the biscof cheesecake and Eton mess were superb. Can't wait to comeback again, the service and atmosphere were top drawer and compliments to the chefs.

A Sunday in early February may not always be the best experience at the moment, but this was fine. We went early, as is our habit on Sundays, but glad we booked, because lots of tables were reserved for a little later. Service was a little patchy to begin with, but improved once an additional member of staff arrived. Enjoyed our Roast beef!

This was meant to be a Christmas Meal, and we had nothing on our table for Christmas ie crackers . When my dinner came out the roast potatoes were black, I asked for more and got two more slightly less black. Staff were obviously wanting to close and it was only 9.15. Another couple came in but were turned away and they were quite cross. Not anyone in there except a couple with a child who didn’t stay long. First and last time I go in there for a meal.

Rewind 19 years, this was by far the best pub in the area. A landlord who’d grown up in the area and new everyone by name, an excellent chef and staff who cared. How things have changed!!!! My latest visit to The Fox is likely to be my last. Firstly, what used to be a lively bar had just a handful of people in. Secondly one table was occupied by the staff and a manger for which getting up and serving seemed like an effort. Also with them was a young child who was allowed to run riot! Food was ordered, which along with being a very small portion for the price did not match the menu description: the menu said “ham & eggs” yet only one egg was served! When questioned another egg was supplied but delivered with comment “the extra egg” I attempted to give the owners opportunity to respond privately before posting this response however the feedback link on the menu did not work!!!!

Beautiful meal at The Fox & Hounds. Haven’t been for a while I went with some friends. Started off with a fab cocktail. For a starter we shared the ‘nibbles’ from the menu - chorizo, Halloumi and deep fried Brie - DELICIOUS!! For main, we all had fish and chips (well it was Friday 😂) and we weren’t disappointed. Will be back soon!!
