I love the menu at Bills. The food is always of an excellent quality and very well presented. The staff are very polite and helpful. Also you are never rushed. A 5 star 🌟 experience.

About the restaurant
General Manager Matt Sear, Executive Chef Steve Bott with Head Chef James Jackson

The Snooty Fox is a pub with a difference and Northamptonshire's finest freehouse - there is so much to sample, you’ll need to revisit many times - and you’ll always be assured of a Snooty Fox welcome whenever you do.

The pub itself is a truly stunning place in the heart of Lowick, a lovely village with a great community spirit.

The Greedy Gordons Pub Group were thrilled to take over the pub in 2020 and wanted to create an unusual and quirky venue with food and drink to match.

Booked a table for my friends birthday. When we arrived there was a balloon on the table for her which was lovely. We ordered Breakfast as we were too early for the lunch menu. The portion sizes were very good for the price and it was nice that you could choose what egg you preferred and have things added or taken off your plate if you wanted to. My only criticism was that the smashed Avacado had just a little too much lemon juice in it for my taste but it was still delicious. When we went to pay at the end my friend was given a mini bottle of prosecco and a birthday card hand signed by all the staff which was a really nice gesture.

Staying at Whittlebury, here for the F1GP, and as it was raining all day today, we decided to go to The Fox & Hounds for lunch. What a brilliant decision. The food was wonderful, really good beer & wine, and the lady that served us (didn’t catch her name) was so lovely…. Friendly, efficient, made us so welcome- thank you.
