Lovely food and good service. Didn't realise it was undergoing renovations though so that affected the ambience a bit. Would definitely go again.

Put in the cold back room, no atmosphere, when finished and walked back through the bar to the car park, it was like travelling from the 18th century to present day as it was warm, comfy, people laughing and enjoying themselves around the fire on sofa's and comfy chairs whereas the back was really quiet, tables sticky and chairs seen better days, felt it was overpriced and you don't get asked if you'd like a second drink, won't be going back to the Victorian times.

Very enjoyable evening at the Fox & Hounds, staff were very friendly, food excellent, and an extra star for the chef who added custard to the Sticky Toffee pud, just for us! We shall return, thank-you.

We enjoyed our meal and the chips were amazing - best we've ever had. The scallop starter was a bit pricey and probably wouldn't have again. Service was friendly and efficient. We'd definitely return if we were in the area again.

We had a fabulous meal, 3 courses, all superb in quality,taste and presentation - we shared the cheese and biscuits at the end as there was easily sufficient for us both.
Couldn’t fault anything - the service food and atmosphere was all excellent, other diners were couples or small groups, not noisy at all.
Restaurant area is at the front of the building set away from the bar. Walls have pictures for sale by local artists.
Highly recommend a meal there. Lots of parking and nice outdoor seating area overlooking fields.

Lovely staff, fantastic food. Huge portion, maybe a half size portion option would be good. Too full to try dessert, but looked scrumpy!

Foid was very good, apart from the lamb dish which wasn't lamb steak as described according to one of my party, but it was cooked well.

As with every year when we visit the food was outstanding service was great, it was busy so a slight delay is expected. The staff were great, kind and very helpful.
We will book a table for our visit again next year.

We had a lovely meal at the Fox and Hounds on Saturday. The food was exceptional and I can recommend the Mussels, the duck in a red wine sauce, the Tuna steak and the Hake Fillet. All wonderful dishes. The service was superb and the atmosphere was welcoming and friendly. This place never fails to deliver a superb dining experience!
