A number of us came together to celebrate our sons 21st and we couldn't have chosen a better place. Arranged over the phone and deposit paid, the staff were very friendly and helpful on the phone and throughout our stay. When we had to drastically reduce our planned number for dinner due to a conflicting event, there was no worry,... More

Went here for an evening meal on a Wednesday. Despite being the only two people in the restaurant it was more than a half hour wait between finishing our starter and the main course arriving. When it did, one on the dishes was as expected if a little overdone, but the other was just a mess, I suspect they had... More

A great friendly small hotel, good location not far from Oakham. Very good service in the restaurant, both for lunch and breakfast. Spacious comfy room with a large bathroom. Would like to book again and try the evening menu.

Decor and furniture in room outstanding, one concern was could have done with a rail in bathroom, 3 foot drop from top of stairs landing to bathroom floor, not suitable for elderly people. However the bathroom once you were in it definitely had a wow factor.

There seem to be plenty of reviews about how great the food is here, and they're all correct. We had lunch this past weekend and it was really delicious - great staff, very well presented, and given the quality, great value. But we also stayed overnight at short notice as we were attending a wedding nearby and it couldn't have... More

We called in on the off chance we might get a table for lunch. The place was busy but we were able to eat. We sat in the restuarant and had a two course lunch with my husband having a steak and myself having salmon with sea trout. There was a small wait for food but as they were unexpectedly... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fox and Hounds Hotel is a handsome former 17th Century coaching inn that dominates the Green in the picturesque Rutland village of Exton. The building oozes character, with a number of fireplaces for cosy winter evenings and a pretty garden for lazy summer days. Privately owned, you can be assured of a warm welcome, with every amenity to make your stay a pleasurable one. The entire building has benefited from a major refurbishment and now offers four boutique hotel luxury rooms. All rooms are ensuite, are individually decorated, and come with broadband internet, Netflix, digital free view, complimentary White Company toiletries, Egyptian cotton linen & bathrobes in the bathrooms, and Espresso coffee and tea making machine. There is also free parking. Dining at the Fox and Hounds 2 AA Rosette restaurant is a treat. We have recently been awarded a place in the Good Food Guide, (the Waitrose UK's Best Restaurants book). We offer some exceptional seasonal menus, a weekly Prix Fixe lunch menu, and a number of British Classics. We also offer various weekly specials, such as our Tuesday Steak Night (see our Offers & Events page for details). The bar menu offers a quirky take on the British classics, from share platters to sandwiches. For more formal dining, the restaurant and deck offers Modern European inspired dishes. On Sundays, a traditional menu is served from noon. ... more   less
