We were out walking with friends and decided to have lunch here. When we arrived we were greeted very warmly by the landlord who was very friendly and courteous. He explained the specials he had on the menu with passion and exuberance. My wife had prawns with crab and avocado with salad. I had mini fish and chips. The fish... More

About an hours drive from home, we love to come to the Fox and Hounds for a special occasion - maybe a couple of visits a year. It is a family run pub/restaurant and the food is of a high quality and the service is very friendly. The waiting staff, including the owner, are very helpful in explaing the menu... More

Walked in here looking for some take away fish and chips not expecting much and was immediately impressed by the welcome from the staff. They made you feel so welcome that we decided to stay and have a drink and even queried the prices as they seemed too cheap. Will definitely go back next time we are passing would even... More

I live locally to the Fox and Hounds so you could say I was biased towards it. I have to say that I probably am, but the fact is that is because it is run to the highest standards by Helen and Vince. Nothing seems to be beyond them or too much trouble. Yesterday we had yet another excellent meal... More

We went for a spur of the moment Sunday lunch with young kids after a visit to nearby Thorpe Perrow. Small Sunday lunch menu with 1/2 portions for kids - we had a mixture of beef and pork. The food came really quickly, was piping hot and absolutely delicious - interesting veg and lovely gravy. The landlord was exceptional and... More

Lovely pub with a great host Vincent serving on the bar at lunch time and making sure all his customers were happy. Food was wonderful and hot and nothing too much trouble for him or his staff. Would highly recommend this place. Nice touch also in the toilets with sprays to freshen up and individual hand towels.

We stayed in the village for a couple of days and called in to the Fox and hounds for a lunchtime drink. We were met by the landlord, Vince, who was so welcoming we decided to book a table there for dinner. The meal we had was exceptional. We both had crab to start it was so fresh and tasty.... More

We called for an evening meal here last week. Very nice country pub with separate restaurant. We were attracted to the steak and kidney pie that was as good as it gets and great value. Will visit again.

Best to reserve a table because this place appears always to be busy. And rightly so. All courses were excellent with huge portions. Outstanding was the Lamb Shank. Leave space for the puddings if you can...well worth it. Professional presentation and friendly staff. One constructive suggestion...they need to upgrade the chairs which are so uncomfortable.
