With a real welcoming atmosphere, a smile an a hello from behind the bar when you walk in. This was my first visit to the Fox & Hounds an definitely won't be the last. Just the sort of quiet country pub I like especially when working away from home every week. The Real Ales are spot on with 3 to... More

Stopped here on a drive from Somerset to Suffolk, only because we were passing it about lunch time. Turned out to be fantastic though. Food (both kids and adults) was exceptional, beer was great (Adnams Mosaic) and staff were outstanding. Wish it was our local :)

We had an early evening meal here after arriving on a flight into Gatwick on our way to the West Country. Had a lovely meal made even better by the lovely attentive staff. Would thoroughly recommend!

Second time at this pub owned by a well regarded butcher from nearby Newbury. Menu isn't enormous (not necessarily a bad thing) but they do pub classics very well. Portions are on the large side...I have a good appetite but struggled to do justice to my rack of ribs. All the party loved their food. Some decent beers and prompted... More

I was fortunate to choose a main course that matched the description on the menu, unlike other members of the party, but they were out of the listed dessert and didn't tell me. Nor did they offer to take it off the bill. Several other items were also off, and the staff seemed to regard this as something clients should... More
