Stayed at the Fox and Hounds for one night while doing the coast to coast walk at the beginning of July.
The Room on arrival had a cracked sink and a toilet that had not been cleaned properly although as we just wanted to crash out we did not mention this on arrival. Also as a previous reviewer pointed the clock in the room did not work (although this was not particularly important). Besides this the room was OK.
The main problem was sleeping. The room was directly above the bar unfortunately this meant that you heard people talking right up to closing - about 1am. When this stopped you then heard the next door neighbour's snoring. Not a great experience.
We also went down for food - this was pretty average and did seem microwaved.
On the positive side the room was large and the pub did have a dedicated drying room useful after a days rain.
As there was a lack of accommodation in the village it seemed there was little choice but to stay there.
