“Good pub food and nice staff”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Went here on a busy Friday night and ate in the restaurant. The food was home cooked and all of us (we were 7 in total) all enjoyed our food, especially the chips! The food is good quality pub food at good prices and freshly cooked. The waitress were all very polite and helpful. Only slight niggle was getting drinks, either had to go the bar ourselves or wait longer for them to be delivered to the table.

Hi there,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Restaurant/Bar in Newmillerdam. We always take genuine reviews seriously and it's even better of course when they're a good one. Yours also helps us improve our Restaurant service as you have commented regarding time to get drinks served. We'll discuss this with the Waiting On Team and look at ways of improving this aspect. Friday nights are busy on the bar, particularly from tea time through to 9 ish so will look at that too.
Look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes.
Jackie, Nick, Mandy & the Team
ps - have you tried our sister Restaurant bar The Horse & Groom at Heath Common? great food and a contemporary feel.

“Quick Drink”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

There was a beer festival happening just over the road, but after visiting Fox and Hounds in the past I knew there would be a few good ales on to try and wasn't disappointed with the Theakstons ale they had one. They also had Black Sheep, Landlord and another Blonde ale on.

The ale is always good here and I had a pint before heading over to the beer festival.

Hi there,
Thanks very much for taking your time to review our Restaurant/Bar - hope you enjoyed the Beer Festival too. We were so busy I didn't even get time this year to pop across and sample some of the varied tastes of Cask Ales that were there. Our Theakston's 'Tour de Wot' is really flying out and maybe they should consider making this part of their permanent range.
Look forward to seeing you again soon
Best wishes
Jackie, Mandy, Nick & the Team!

“Great pub in a great location”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

After a stroll around Newmillerdam there's nothing better than popping into the Fox and Hounds for a spot of lunch. Alternatively you can sit outside on the decked area or in the lower garden area. Excellent food and really friendly staff. Would certainly recommend a visit.

Eat there regularly. Nine of us there on Saturday 14th June for a surprise meal for my husband's birthday, food was excellent, staff are brilliant, nothing too much trouble. A great night had by all. Cannot fault it.

Lovely pub, nice staff, we had the hoisin duck wrap and it was very tasty. We sat outside on the decked area in the sunshine which was beautiful. A very enjoyable day off from our own pub!!!

Well what can I say - always so good when you get a great review from one of our fellow 'publicans'!!
I say this because we will be more critical generally speaking than the public so we really appreciate your feedback. let us know where you are - it'd be good to come and sample your hospitality too.
Hope to see you again soon - best wishes from Jackie, Mandy, Nick & the Team
