I've eaten here many times but this is my first review. The food here is glorious. Portions are excellent and cooking, wonderful. I love the whole place. It's in a tiny village and is glorious on a sunny day as once you've dined, you can enjoy the lovely garden which has play facilities for young children. The menu in itself... More

Just under £139 for 4 persons for 2 courses. 1 person only had 1. Some drinks. Over priced. Husband's starter £7 for a tiny mackeral with rocket and a very little mustard. Main courses came with a speck of spinach for the green vegetables. My medium to well done lamb was bloody so sent back and still came back bloody... More

Firstly, if you use the postcode for the Fox and Hounds beware, both myself and my friends ended up in Ware not Hunsdon. Check a map first. The restaurant is well decorated if a little bit cold feeling. The food was good and imaginative and at 80 pounds a couple inc tip not outrageously expensive. The most annoying thing was... More

Fantastic chillie crab and mango starter, followed by the best steak I've had in a long while. Great wine and a few pints of Camden Hells. Not cheap but I suppose it keeps the riff raff out. Another very good evening spent in the Fox and Hounds.

We ate here last night with 2 friends. The staff were very smiley, friendly & efficient. I ordered the lamb main course which was one of the best I've tasted, cooked well done to my liking, succulent and not fatty. My husband ordered the pork chop which was huge & perfectly cooked. The wine was very reasonably priced too, so... More

Thanks to someone else's cancelled booking we got in at short notice and had lovely Sunday lunch with visiting family. Delicious Sunday roasts all round, roaring fire and friendly service. Bit more restaurant than local pub but very relaxed. Will definitely be back.

Went to the Fox and Hounds for lunch yesterday(Sunday). Have been there before but not for a while. We were the first to arrive in the restaurant but it soon filled up. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food - whilst not the largest menu had plenty of excellent things to choose from, and the wine list... More

Found the restaurant (its not a pub) from the via Michelin website which has never let me down. The Fox and Hounds is one of those places you feel at home at soon as you walk in. Lovely atmosphere, people sitting around their tables all enjoying themselves, you can tell from the volume of chatter. Good start. When we'd booked... More

Nice atmosphere, more restaurant than pub but plenty of character. The rosemary bread was very tasty! Good food at fair prices... a few tweaks (custard with desert would of been nice in a jug for example ) and would of been 5 star. Would visit again.

Thank Debbie W

At the Fox & Hounds, the atmosphere & service is friendly & informal with select local beers & a choice of continental lagers & great wines. Diners have the option of eating award-winning Chef, James Rix' sophisticated, but simple menu in the bar, lounge, or the superb chandeliered dining room.

In the summer months, you can enjoy eating on our heated, covered terrace.

All our steaks are now cooked on the Josper oven, along with whole fish, squid, scallops in their shell and mussels. Our whole ribs of beef for Sunday lunch are also finished in the oven.

The oven keeps fish really juicy - it cooks fish rapidly with great flavour & keeps flesh moist as well as enhancing the flavour of our steaks from the sweetness of the charcoal.
