Never disappointing. The Fox and Hounds deserves all of the accolades it receives. Menu is seasonal and always exciting. Locally, there is nothing to compare. Wine list is well thought and the choice of draught ales is first rate. Service is helpful, efficient and polite....More

Not overly impressed with this place. Everyone seemed up their own backside. That aside, the food looked great. But will not go back due to atmosphere.

At the Fox & Hounds, the atmosphere & service is friendly & informal with select local beers & a choice of continental lagers & great wines. Diners have the option of eating award-winning Chef, James Rix' sophisticated, but simple menu in the bar, lounge, or the superb chandeliered dining room.

In the summer months, you can enjoy eating on our heated, covered terrace.

All our steaks are now cooked on the Josper oven, along with whole fish, squid, scallops in their shell and mussels. Our whole ribs of beef for Sunday lunch are also finished in the oven.

The oven keeps fish really juicy - it cooks fish rapidly with great flavour & keeps flesh moist as well as enhancing the flavour of our steaks from the sweetness of the charcoal.
