We haven't eaten here for several months and always could rely on a good meal for a reasonable price. The pub must have changed hands as the menu is very limited compared to what it used to be. The food we had was bland and the portions tiny. Cost wasn't too bad, £36 for two adult meals and two children's meals. Shame as the children love the playing area and we love the comfy seats and the patio area. Won't be back to spend our hard earned cash. Would rather cook!

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Fox and Hounds. We appreciate all feedback as we truly believe that this is the only way of improving the service we provide. We are currently making changes to reduce the wait at busy times and one of the steps to help this was to use a reduced menu.

A picturesque pub/restaurant with ample seating indoors and outdoors. There is also a nice patio area outside along with a huge play area for the kids. I quite often go for a nice Sunday dinner or an evening meal with friends. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and I totally understand they can be extremely busy, especially at weekends and if the weather is nice but they cope with the added pressure remarkably well. They normally over estimate the waiting time but this can only be a good thing as the food usually arrives in nearly half the time estimated. The food is amazing and I can't fault it one bit. Generous portions and quality food cooked to a high standard is a huge compliment to the chefs as they must be under immense pressure. I've yet to try their desserts as I'm usually too full up but maybe one day I will find room to sample one as they look amazing whenever I see the waitresses carrying them to other tables. A huge credit to 'Paula' and her team for providing a fun, vibrant, family atmosphere with great food and drink to compliment this lovely venue.

Just returned from a visit here this evening and on return home decided to post a review. Really shocked at recent comments as we have just had a super evening. Staff were attentive and service efficient ( we are quite ' high maintainence' due to allergy concerns but all questions were dealt with excellently and my daughter was left feeling looked after and safe, unlike some places where she feels she has been a problem )
All five of us enjoyed different starters and mains and so i feel confident that we are equipped to say that all meals were presented well, portions were generous, food was piping hot and we all enjoyed what we had chosen. There was a large party in next to us and staff mentioned that as we had just sat down after them there may be a wait for food( absolutely understandable if it had happened ) but this wasn't the case at all. The kitchen clearly dealt very well. We have eaten at this pub on and off for several years now and have never experienced problems. I'm sure we will return soon.
