We have been at The Fox and Hounds since 2000 and we pride ourselves on remaining true to the traditional sense of the term 'gastropub' with equal attention paid to 'gastro' and 'pub'! We have a regularly changing Mediterranean menu with daily specials, an international wine list and a full range of beers, including 4 real ales on tap at any one time.
Please call if you would like to book at table. We can also cater for parties of up to 30 people in the 'cottage'.

Nice selection for Sunday lunch with lots of optios as well as roasts. Despite being busy the service was good. Other food was excellent but the pototoes and parsnips with the roasts were under-cooked.

Could have had a different gravey for the different meats. Roast potatoes could have been more crispy and indulgence but overall not bad and a good solid roast. Tiramisu a bit dry, and we did mention this to the staff, but sticky toffee very good. Wouldn't get roast again but would like to try their other dishes.

I have been visiting The Fox and Hounds regularly since moving to Battersea in 2011 and have always had good experiences. Not on this occasion, however. We had guests visiting from Scotland who were treating my husband and I to dinner. I was deeply embarrassed when the bar staff refused to accept Scottish notes, saying they had had a fake note some time ago and decided to refuse Scottish legal tender from then on. There are several simple methods to ensuring notes are genuine without alienating visitors from north of the border. How many English fake notes have been passed? The barman told me George and Richard Manus who own the pub made the decision. May I urge you to reverse it, it was a bad one, so I can once again bring guests from Scotland to your fine Battersea hostelry.

As always, a delicious meal served by their really friendly and professional staff. Our guests included adults, children and a dog - all left having been very well looked after. I highly recommend Fox & Hounds to anyone wanting to experience gastropub food at its best, in a lovely setting with great service!

We had never been to the Fox and Hounds before but were very pleasantly surprised how well run it was - all the staff were delightful and helpful, the food was delicious and the servings generous. And the house wine was good too. Highly recommended - we could even park nearby.

Lovely experience as always at the Fox & Hound. The only thing I’d ever mark them down on is value as it is expensive for pub fare but it doesn’t detract away from the experience and we’ll definitely be back. Food and service were excellent.

Lovely local pub with excellent food. They were showing the rugby and we asked to be in front of a screen and they made sure our table was well placed which was good.

This place was recommended to us so we had high hopes. On the plus side we loved the ambiance - very cosy - and the service was excellent also. However, it was let down by the food. Two of us ordered a buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad with pomegranate seed/pine nuts etc. which sounded very nice. However, when it arrived - despite looking beautiful there were no tomatoes and instead we got figs, with neither of us like! We complained and the waitress said that 'sometimes the chef changes it' but that no-one had updated the menu. She took our plates away and swapped the figs for tomato - which turned out to be one quartered hard 'orange' coloured tomato, with no dressing - not the nice ripe red Italian vine tomatoes we had imagined. And certainly not enough for the generous service of mozzarella. Plus by the time we got it back my husband was halfway through his starter while we just sat there. He had the hot smoked salmon and said it was 'average'. Mains were reasonable - and my monkfish was excellent, but the damage had been done. This was compounded when we ordered coffee and a dish of profiteroles to share, to be told they had 'no coffee' as their delivery hadn't arrived! What wrong with going to Tesco?! All in all a rather disappointing experience - especially as they include 12.5% service charge as standard. We could have removed it, but the service itself as very good and it wasn't the waiting staff's fault!

Just wanted to say huge thank you to the team at the Fox and hounds‘s for being so lovely and accommodating. I have recently broken my leg and they couldn’t have been more helpful on what was an exceptionally busy night for them.
Going out after a major Op and being so incapacitated is quite daunting but I felt so welcome and had such a great time and it has really aided my recovery


The food is always excellent and the service is great there highly recommended!!

Thanks so much

Went here for new years eve 2019 and booked a table for dinner only. We were seated in a cosy corner tucked away which was perfect as we weren't there to drink/party. Food menu was slightly limited but appreciate it's a busy night for them, and we were very happy with what we did have. Really lovely festive atmosphere but not chaotic or unpleasant. Staff were very pleasant and perfectly attentive, not imposing but there when we needed them. Food came quickly and after this first visit would definitely go back here again.

Great tasty food, lovely traditional pub vibe. Shame seating is limited to 2 hours as we would have loved to stay longer but given how popular they are it makes sense. More of a restaurant than a place to just sit and have drinks.

my roast chicken was overdone - the meat was very dry. the accompaniments were also a little bland (potatoes/parnips/carrots were done very simply).

others' food was much better

Living locally I had heard it was a good place for Sunday roast. The roast beef was excellent but the Pork unfortunately had chewy crackling not good. As other reviews the vegetables needed some greens. The ambiance was very friendly and the staff very welcoming. Will return
