First time I've been in the fox and hounds in along time. The restaurant is light and airy and rather comfortable. The food was very good and the service was excellent. What really impressed me was the knowledge of the waitress that was serving us. The ingredients of the dish and all its components. Gluten free was not a problem... More

My partner and I visited here recently for something to eat. Upon arriving we entered into the bar on the bottom and were a little confused as I had booked for the bar upstairs but there were no signs directing you to the upstairs bar so we asked a waitress who kindly showed us the stairs at the back. As... More

Went for a meal last night with some friends. First time back at the F & H since taken over by new owner. We were surprised how quiet it was in the upstairs restaurant for a Friday night. The decor is nice with comfortable chairs and tables, not too close together. Service was extremely slow; we had to get the... More

We ate here on our last night in Scotland and we are so glad we did! The food selection was great and everything tasted amazing! Our bartender/server, David made the evening! He had us laughing and made us some spectacular drinks! We hope to go back on our next visit!

Went in for some food with my partner today. We were unsure as to which part to sit in, however a helpful waitress showed us around. We chose to sit in the bar. We had the sharing platter which was great. Perfect for two. Then we both had the Sunday roast. I had the roast sirloin and it was by... More

We have eaten twice now in the refurbished Fox and Hounds bar. Both times food was excellent and staff attentive. Prices are reasonable too. Next time want to try the downstairs restaurant as so many positive reviews about the lava stone cooking experience.

Wow, what a surprise! I was expecting the usual boring old Scottish pub restaurant with antlers and tartan carpets, but this is something else! Actually the pub at the front is a bit traditional but hey, it's very cosy and welcoming and obviously very popular. Just venture further in and the restaurant behind is a stylish joy with a great...

Following a recent refurbishment we found the décor in the restaurant to be very nice. It was a tad cold but we were offered the opportunity to move tables if we wished. The food and service was excellent service - highly recommended.

We arrived on a Saturday evening after reserving a table in the Huntsmans Bar as the main restaurant was fool. There were three of us in the party and we all had steak pie which was really good. Pastry lovely as was the mash, chips and veg. The meat which there was ample, was done in a very rich, nice... More

Not living local I go out my way to visit the fox and hounds purely for it being such a great pub. What happened to the beer choice though? Last time in I had options from the likes of Tempest, Thornbride, Tiny Rebel and Wild so I thought bring a few mates along as you would be happy with this... More
