The Guardian : best sunday lunch runner up

We look forward to seeing you soon, on a Sunday for our 'Award winning roast', or any other day!

At the Fox & Hounds Restaurant & Bar, the atmosphere & service is friendly & informal with select local beers & a choice of continental lagers & great wines. Diners have the option of eating award-winning Chef, James Rix’ sophisticated, but simple menu in the bar, lounge, or the superb chandeliered dining room.

In the summer months, you can enjoy eating on our heated, covered terrace.

The Fox & Hounds is featured in all good guides including Michelin, AA Best Pubs, Alastair Sawday's Special Places & CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

The Observer Food Monthly Awards 2018 are now open for voting.
We thought we would have a bash at the 'Best Sunday Lunch' category again after coming runners up in 2017! Winning any awards and receiving such recognition is always a boost for the team - especially on a national level.

Sunday Lunch at The Fox & Hounds has always been the favourite place for a roast for lots of locals, and those from further afield.

Please support us again in these awards by voting for 'Best Sunday Lunch' category. Thanks to sponsors and partners of the awards, everyone who votes also gets entered into their draw to win exclusive prizes.
