“Nice ambience but dismal expensive food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2012

We popped in for lunch on the Queen's Jubilee weekend. The pub was decked out very nicely and staff were friendly, though the royal family masks we're a bit freaky.
We both had the roast of the day - one pork and one beef. It was pretty average. Blue plate meal - everything including gravy arrived already served. Not the most generous serves either - tiny Yorkshire pudding and everything rather bland and tasteless. Was a little expensive for $22.
The Old Speckled Hen on tap was well kept.

Now that the new owners, have taken the helm, the Fox and Hounds as started to become what it should have when it first opened a few years ago, Stuart the Landlord as done a fantastic job so far, adding a covered area to the outside court-yard, and some wonderful new seating, theres also a nice little English shop to have a browse in.

The service as also vastly improved, since the older days, with a well put together team, looking very smart too in there black uniforms.

Stuarts also keeping the condition of the UK beers first class, and hopefully we may see some other UK beers on tap.

So if you are missing your Pint of UK beer, and fancy some great tucker, then pop along to the Fox and Hounds, it can get very busy so pre book if there's a a lot of you....

Not a hotel, but a copy of a English pub ( sort of ) I like this place, it offers something very different to Oz style places, however, i think alot more could be done to make it outstanding, The food is over priced and nothing special, and the beer at $9 a pint is alittle expensive, i understand its shipped from the Uk, but even in Sydney the same stuff is cheaper, Being a English pub, more should be done to encourage English style events, It made a day of it for St Patricks day, yet nothing for St Georges day!!!!!!

The current owner is moving on, so maybe the new owners will change things, opening all day would be helpful, saturdays especially, Promote you beers more , have more guest beers on, do a BBQ from time to time, expand your outside area with more tables, do lighter English style Bites on your menu.........

And lastly get some organisation behind the bar, the girls do a great job, but need to be more efficient at serving, and spotting whos been waiting 10 mins instead of serving someone who just walks in....
