A PUB. As it should be. Nothing spectacular but good enough. Good beer. Good food. Good Service. Worth the try.

We chose the Fox and Hounds as it was equal distance to travel for 14 family members to meet up on Saturday night. It was a lovely evening, excellent service from the friendly staff. The Surf and Turf starter was amazing, as was the Garlic Prawns and the sharing Camembert. On the main menu the Burger was a big hit... More

Went here for Sunday lunch. Staff lovely and cosy restaurant. Food nice but a couple of changes could be made. The camembert sharing starter would have been nice with a chutney or relish as was a little bland and when I ordered a vegetarian roast I assumed it meant a nut roast or similar with the roast veg although all...

This was our second visit, the first for lunch and this one for dinner. Excitedly I, after a long week away with work, asked my wife out for dinner. So we chose the Fox and Hounds as our lunch there was good. I greedily ordered the 20oz T-Bone (not cheap) and my wife the 8oz Sirloin. On arrival, my heart... More

Used to come here Friday and Saturday nights back in 1988-1991 when i attended Mary Hare School - just minutes walk away, Looking at some of the pics, pub has a nice modern appearance and the dartboard is still in the same place 30 year later. Coming back to this pub with friends - certainly brings back a lot of... More

Visited here after a long walk from Newbury to snealsmore common, bar staff were extremely welcoming of us two and our dog. We just wanted a bite to eat so we tucked into the olives & bread and the fantastic surf and turf kebabs with a mystery sauce. Looking forward to revisiting again soon

We visited this local pub on a Sunday with some friends who were staying with us. We had heard good things and knew about the connection with the fantastic butchers in the town centre so wanted to try it. Although a little out of the way it has always looked nice from the outside when we had driven past. Unfortunately... More

A family Sunday lunch after a long drive from the North. We had a friendly welcome, good food and very attentive staff. Turf and Surf Kebabs were delightful followed by a tasty Sunday Roast. The only downside (and this wasn't a fault of the pub) was a rather irritating yappy dog who's owners obviously thought it was okay to allow... More
