Description: For over a decade The Fox has enjoyed extraordinary success as one of the West Country’s premier pub/eateries. Following a major refurbishment, the venue now hosts a visionary new drinking and dining experience we guarantee you won’t find anywhere else. So come on in and take a seat. We’ve got comfy sofas around a fire for those winter months and a walled garden for summer. There are enough tables and chairs for everyone and we promise zero queueing time at the bar… because there is no bar. Instead, we have our new feature Beer Wall – an inspiring choice of Boutique Beers, craft ales and ciders, spirits and wines for you to explore. Take it easy for the whole time you’re with us and enjoy the many great experiences The Fox has to offer.

“Excellent home cooked pub food!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We were staying in Frome at the Premier Inn and were going to have a meal at the TableTable Frome Flyer but it was completely packed - on a weeknight!

SO, after short drive we found the Fox and Hounds and decided to give it a try... we were really pleased that we did!!!

Lovely little country pub, quiet area with a car park. Excellent service, the food was really lovely, well cooked and delicious pub grub.

All very reasonably priced also, so glad we found it!!

“Very welcoming!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Popped in on the off chance for dinner, and on some positive advice from the in laws, and wasn't disappointed, the staff were welcoming and friendly, good food reasonably priced, and a nice atmosphere, well worth a visit!

“Sunday Lunch at the fox and Hounds”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We had lunch at the fox and hounds to at 13:15 we had mains and pudding good value for the money, on time good service, staff very friendly, the food was Excellent, would recommend it,you could have a much as you like, two meats etc if you liked, loads of veg, great gravy, quite large plates, nice clean pub, yes we would go again like home cooking, could park ok outside in the car park, all for £10 pounds for main and £5 for starter or pudding, and all cooked nicely, I think you would have to book on any Sunday lunch time as it was full,but with loads of food for every one. Yes give it a try you will go again I'm sure.

Hi Kevin,

Thankyou for the positive review, we are of course very happy that you enjoyed your visit. You're right, our Sunday carveries are usually very busy and booking ahead is recommended.

We hope to see you again soon.

Kind Regards

Adam and Michelle

“Super find...even some yummy vegetarian options!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

So excited we found this place! Really friendly and helpful staff who detailed the vegetarian options for me. Fantastic atmosphere and a good selection of wine. Best falafel I've had ever..and I've had lots. We weren't staying long enough to eat more from their menu but we are very keen to go back and try more!
