WOW!!!! What a find this pub was. Coming back from the motorcycle live show at the NEC the 3 of us wanted some good hot honest food, and boy oh boy we weren't disappointed. Lovely staff, good beer, oh and home cooked Venison pie. Absolutely delicious! Pipling hot and full of flavour. Superb. We went home very full and contented.... More

My wife son and I visited this pub due to the nearby travel lodge having no bar or restaurant. As soon as you walked in the heat from the open fire hit you, these are my favourite type of pub cosy, old decor and polite staff. Had a nice chat with a local couple and the food i highly recommend,... More

The Fox and Hounds is only 5 minutes walk from the B&B we were staying in so it was very handy to eat there. We received a very warm welcome on arrival. The pub/restaurant is furnished and decorated in a very traditional style and the menu was fairly standard too. We were served promptly and have no complaints at all... More

Nothing to complain about. Offers everything a pub should - good food, well priced, large selection of drinks, outside seating for the summer and a fire for the winter. Plus, I hardly ever get abuse hurled at me by the landlord and landlady as soon as I walk in the door anymore as I actually paid my tab. BONUS!

We knew it was late Sunday afternoon so didn't expect a Sunday Roast - they had already finished by 4pm. We selected from the menu and every starter and main was perfect. Prawn Cocktail, Pate and Skewers - then Steak, Lamb and a burger - every meal was large in size and the quality was surprising. Will definitely be visiting... More

My partner and I along with my daughter visited this charming little pub for a spot of Sunday lunch. It's a family run venue and they keep a fairly tidy ship. Clearly very popular and appealing to locals and visitors alike. The food was very tasty and plentiful and amazingly cheap for what was very good quality. Nice friendly service... More

Dinner was fine here. Large potions too much for me as I am only a small eater. Place could do with a redecorating.
