The owner is a butcher and the meat dishes show the quality.... More

The family converged on the pub from three different directions (at a distance). We had a big table in a corner to ourselves, which was quite helpful for swapping Christmas presents, and admiring the baby granddaughter. We were very impressed by the extremely quick appearance of the baby's food - way ahead of the adults even getting to study the... More

A PUB. As it should be. Nothing spectacular but good enough. Good beer. Good food. Good Service. Worth the try.

We chose the Fox and Hounds as it was equal distance to travel for 14 family members to meet up on Saturday night. It was a lovely evening, excellent service from the friendly staff. The Surf and Turf starter was amazing, as was the Garlic Prawns and the sharing Camembert. On the main menu the Burger was a big hit... More
