The Fox and Hounds Hotel is a handsome former 17th Century coaching inn that dominates the Green in the picturesque Rutland village of Exton. The building oozes character, with a number of fireplaces for cosy winter evenings and a pretty garden for lazy summer days. ​ The entire building has benefited from a major refurbishment and now offers four boutique hotel luxury rooms. All rooms are en suite, and individually decorated to the highest standard. There is also free parking. ​ Our 2 AA Rosette restaurant has recently been awarded a place in the Good Food Guide, (the Waitrose UK's Best Restaurants reference book). We offer some exceptional seasonal menus, a weekly Prix Fixe lunch menu, and a number of British Classics. We also offer various weekly specials, such as our Tuesday Steak Night (see our Offers & Events page on our website for details). The bar menu offers a quirky take on the British classics, from share platters to sandwiches. For more formal dining, the restaurant and deck offers Modern European inspired dishes. On Sundays, a traditional menu is served from noon. Chef/Patron David Graham, Head Chef Glen Cowl and our kitchen team are passionate about food. Great food. Unpretentious food. Food to eat. Defining an overall food style is difficult – Modern British if we were pushed to name one. Rutland is teaming with some of the finest UK produce. We have an enviable reputation for both our game and meat, which is reared and butchered exclusively for the restaurant. The menus are designed to compliment this quality; seasonal obviously; imaginative where needed and perhaps a little nostalgic. The result is deeply desirable dishes that come across as grown up comfort food, presented with great delicacy, flair and a little bit of theatre. Good looking? Sure, but created with a passion for flavour. We look forward to welcoming you.
