A pub that serves food is only as good as it’s chef and in the Fox & Hounds (Ardley) they have a cracking chef. The menu is limited in that they can serve consistently outstanding food rather then a range of half decent microwave meals....More

A fabulous little pub and newly refurbished to boot. Super friendly staff and the food was heavenly. The steaks are fabulous, they melted in the mouth - whoever the butcher is, keep hold of him!

The Fox and Hounds is under new management; welcome to YOUR community pub. Kelly, Steve and family would like to welcome you to the new Fox & Hounds. Having lived in Ardley for nearly 4 years, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to take over the Fox and Hounds when the opportunity arose and turn our dream of a “village pub for the community” into a reality. After 2 weeks of extensive refurbishment, including 2 new kitchens, a fantastic new menu, real ales including Hook Norton “Hooky” and Timothy Taylors Landlord, we are now open. For those passing through, you can find us rather conveniently located at Junction 10 on the M40 and a alternative stop to the services. We offer free wifi and a cosy environment for a business meeting. We are open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and look forward to welcoming you to your new Fox and Hounds at Ardley. Kelly and Steve x
