I stumbled across it on a recommendation from a couple walking their dogs, Bessie and Bertie (the dogs names), in Whittlebury Park on Saturday morning.. What a find, nestled in... More

We came to the fox and hounds with friends for a night out. We couldn't fault anything. The food was lovely and a good selection and staff were more than helpful. We were so impressed we've booked to go there for our big anniversary celebration meal.

Me and my partner loved this place! We came down from Nottingham to stay at Whittlebury Hall and spotted it on the way, we ditched the terrible hotel restaurant to come and try the food here. We were incredibly impressed! the quality of food was fantastic, I've never had a duck breast so big and perfectly cooked. Probably the best... More

Staying at the nearby Whittlebury hall where the food is poor this is such a refreshing place to go for dinner. I took my team of 5 for dinner there and the food was excellent and the drinks well priced. I would recommend the blue cheese burger as the best item on the menu

Excellent find tucked away near towcester and silverstone. large car park, excellent choices on bar menu and restaurant menu. Both menus available in restaurant but only bar menu available in bar. Service charge not added to bill but well deserved, however do not add it to card payment ( amex not accepted) as staff do not receive it. Staff knowledgable... More

A quiet birthday meal on a quiet Monday, was made special by the excellent service and food. The chap who served us was attentive and friendly and when he discovered it was my birthday he produced a plate with Happy Birthday written in Chocolate and a scoop of ice cream with a candle in. Inspite of it being the chef's... More
