“A one night stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Stayed at The Fox and Hounds for one night.I didn't arrive until 9pm, but I phoned ahead to see what time food was served until. I was told 8 30, but not to worry, if I gave them an eta, they would cook something for me, which they duely did. The pie was gourgeous. The twin room was big, clean and so was the en suite.If i'm back in the area I would'nt hesitate in going back.

Quaint, oldy worldy pub that serves excellent food. Room clean, tv with good reception,warm with huge bathroom although no double glazing to window. Good choice for breakfast, nothing too much bother, a good choice for a short break.

Our party of 4 went on a saturday night. Booked a table in the bar where there was an open fire and a good atmosphere. We had the fishcake starter and cheese and walnut pate. Both were very fresh and tasty. The main courses all went down very well - chicken and leek, steak pie and gammon. There was a warm friendly welcome from behind the bar and the waitresses were polite and helpful. Definitely recommend, we will be returning.

We stayed in Cotherstone and tried this pub, first for Sunday lunch and then for an evening meal. Both times we were not dissapointed. Food was beautifully cooked and served with fresh veg! Home made soup was really nice. I recommend the home made fish cakes - the best i have ever tasted. Staff are very friendly and the atmosphere was excellent. Lovely open fire. A good selection of ales. A definate return.

Had a lovely lunch here. Steak, black pudding and ale pie was beautifully cooked and delicious. The chicken with cotherstone cheese and leeks was moist and juicy. My salad of prawns, cooked beef and cotherstone cheese was simple but worked well being both fresh and tasty. Uncomplicated and unpretentious food with good service. Recommended.

Just stayed two nights at the Fox and Hounds and the service, food and beer were all excellent. A very enjoyable weekend and a great base to see the local area.The breakfasts were particularly noteworthy. Highly recommended. We will be returning.
