What can you say, great food, great wine and great service!!! Reasonably priced too!! It was busy whilst we were there but that didn't effect the high standard of food and service.

Every time we have visited we have been made to feel very relaxed and welcome. Sunday lunch was good, but attention was drawn to how well the restaurant was run, and that was like clock work. Well done to all the staff and managers.

One of our regular haunts and didn't disappoint. Pie of the day (steak and mushroom) was excellent with great crunchy chips. Rest of our party were also very happy with meals. Wide selection of ales and fantastic service completed a memorable night

Went to Fox and Hounds with a group of about 40 friends. I found the Barman to be indifferent and the main course poorly cooked. My beef was not rare and some vegetables undercooked. This was surprising as on a previous visit we had been well satisfied.

We chose the Fox and Hounds for a birthday meal with my son and we were not disappointed. The menu is extensive, varied and interesting. The food was beautifully cooked and very well presented and portions are generous. Prices are reasonable and very good value, bearing in mind the quality of the food. The wine list also provides plenty of... More

My friend and I stopped off here last week for a meal and drink. The food and service were first class, the pub interior was excellent and the toilets very clean, plenty of parking available outside we'll definitely eat here again.
