I have been coming to this restaurant for years now and the food has never once disappointed. A fairly small but varied menu, portions are spot on and value for money is unrivalled. All lovingly cooked by the landlady, this is the epitome of delicious pub grub. I can honestly recommend every dish, though the garlic chicken is a particular... More

Make sure you phone and book ahead. For the money you will not get a better steak. Locally sourced meat lovingly prepared and cooked to perfection. You could go in to London and pay in excess of £25 for a steak but why would you when you can come here and get it for under £16. Chunky chips with a... More

Whilst paling through with family we made a quick visit to Fox & Hounds. Nice homely atmosphere spoiled slightly by a grumpy publican! Not a place to visit if you have dirty boots or your children

A great rest break for touring around. The pub is typical English and wonderful hospitality. As always make sure you engage with the patrons and staff it makes for a rewarding experience and who knows what you'll learn about this interesting area.

It has been some time since I last reviewed this pub so felt it was time for an update. The standards are as high as ever. It is very welcoming, stocks excellent, well kept ales and any food we have ever ordered has been delicious. Other pubs and publicans could do better if they modelled their premises on this one.

This is a wonderful old fashioned pub with low beams, open fire and friendly staff. The food is wonderful in particular the Sunday roasts the potatoes are to die for.

I asked the man behind the bar if they did snacks and he say 'no'. I said I wanted to eat and what did they have and he indicated the menu. He should change his job - unless this is a joke to see how awkward and negative you can be to customers. Anyway I chose chicken in a mustard... More

This is a nice traditional pub, no talking on mobiles allowed. The macaroni cheese is to die for. The food is always fresh, hot and great value.

Visited for the first time recently with a pair of friends and contrary to some other reviews found the landlord and a couple of the regulars we encountered to be perfectly friendly. A friend ordered a cider and on the landlord's recommendation decided on a different one for the same price. To make the point, he came over to the... More

This is a quaint English pub in the heart of the village serving really good English Ales and traditional good quality food. The prices are very reasonable and competitive given the surrounding competition. The landlord is one to watch out for not smiling very much and very sensitive about mobile phones.
