Wimborne never fails to please. The Fox and Hounds is in a lovely secluded spot with plenty of parking. It also boasts plenty of local open field walks, along the river Stour. The food is very good too and excellent value for money. We went for a Sunday roast and enjoyed a fulfilling roast lamb. The pub gets very busy... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time after hearing lots of good things about it and we were certainly not disappointed. We were welcomed and served by a lady called Shana who was fantastic and really made the visit special for us. Its very rare to receive customer service like this nowadays. We will be returning again soon for... More

We first visited the Fox & Hounds six years ago when we moved to Wimborne , Shana was the manageress at that time. She left shortly after that and the pub went steadily downhill. We thought we would give it another try and were really pleased to see Shana was back. The service and food is now excellent, just as... More

The family and I attended the Fox and Hounds for a gathering. We discovered that the food was delicious, although it was served on cold plates, meaning that the food lost its temperature rather quickly. A family member requested a gluten free menu and was delighted with the choice she was given, which can be a rarity in these types... More

I tried to book a table for the evening and I was told that the restaurant would be busy and I was offered another table for an hour earlier. The prices of the menu were fairly high for a pub, and the food quality and cooking skills did not match the price and the dishes were well below standard. Only... More

We went recently and were worried, in view of previous comments, that the Cambrian lamb would not be up to scratch. However, my husband really enjoyed it as it just fell apart. I had the sea bass and seared scallops on a risotto, which was delicious. Fish and chips were also enjoyed. We had apple pie and custard and that... More
