Mike and Eileen did us proud when a dozen of us got together to celebrate a 70th birthday. The decorations and atmosphere were brilliant and everyone appreciated the good food , beer and excellent service.

The evening meal was good and the breakfast set us up for the day. Dont know how he has got this reputation of being... More

A cosy, characterful building in a beautiful Dales setting. Sounds like a recipe for the perfect pub? -Wrong! The landlord's utter contempt for mankind in general and his customers in particular is manifested in everything from his unwelcoming manner and the cynical tone of his conversation to the erratic opening hours and the overpriced, badly kept beer. Within a couple... More

Enjoyed a perfect night here when passing through on the dalesway, Saturday 30th July. Both our meals were excellent sitting out in the beer garden and after pitching our tent we returned for a warming courvoisier. Landlord was very friendly and welcoming and would love to return, good Yorkshire pub, seemed popular too with locals.

Location a beautiful picturesque village, the pub is just overflowing in character. The landlord was very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the cider was perfectly cold and my excellent glass of red wine at room temperature.

The fox and hounds is a unique dales pub. The landlord does not suffer fools hence the odd bad review. This is due to people who,are used to be waited on by people not able to give opinions ! Perhaps southerners We live in southport and have dined here for 15 years and would challenge anyone who could say they... More

A group of us stopped here for some drinks whilst we were on a long walk around Upper Wharfedale. We all sat outside and dutifully took off our boots after reading the sign on the door before going in. We stood waiting to be served whilst the landlord carried on his conversation with someone sitting at the bar. He was... More
