A nice little pub with a good wood burner. My friend had chicken and wild mushroom an excellent choice it was very tasty. Oh dear, I had the liver and mash which was a disappointment.The waitress enquired how I wanted the liver and a request for rare was interpreted as very over cooked, the mash contained a large lump of glassy potato. But what the heck they were being shut down for another month. I will dash back to the South Hams Devonshire without the memory of a disappointing meal. The three gentlemen on the next table probably were Probably as deaf I am so had to shout and laugh very loudly at each other drowning out my friends conversations.

Booked a table for 6 on Halloween as part of our Pirate ghost walk.
Very friendly staff, felt homely and inviting.
Good selection of ales including a local brewer.
Food arrived promptly and portions were huge.
We will be going back....one day.

Lovely little country pub with a friendly local vibe. Great experience on arrival, explaining their Covid rules nice and clearly. Brilliant service. Lovely food, which you could tell was freshly made, and decent portions. Very child friendly too. Definitely recommend.

Overal the meal was very good and the presentation of the Restaurant was very good. However the service initially for drinks was poor but did improve a bit with the meal. We would consider returning again at some time in the future.

Warm welcome, friendly service throughout, but with only another couple in the restaurant it was a bit too quiet. Also the decor lets the good food down, which is a shame. If I were to suggest it to a friend, I would warn them what to expect in terms of the space and that it needs an upgrade.

Super little pub, really liked the table service and no use of an ordering App, food was excellent, we had prawns then mackerel salad and a giant pudding.
Lovely staff, but the youngsters went home at the end of their shift and we were left alone, just needed a seemless transfer!! Will go again.

Excellent Food - although we had to wait some 15-20 minutes (which we were told was to prepare the fresh meat burgers), the wait was worth it as the food was very well presented and very tasty. Excellent home made burgers which crumbled. Nice homely atmosphere. Will go again.

the whole experience was good during covid. The one thing I had issues with is the sweet brioche bun with a burger with bacon and cheese. It just didn't go. The bench seating was uncomfortable.

Lovely building and charming staff, but service was slow and food was rather unimaginative. We were disappointed that our table was tucked away behind a wooden screen when we were hoping to be able to enjoy the lively atmosphere of the main part of the restaurant.

We have had delivery orders rom here during lockdown & they were all good.
The pub was busy ,which was fine as we were on the discount night but unfortunately there was only one waiter on to serve the restaurant & bar & due to the bookings that had been made they needed help at the tables.
It took a hour to get our mains,drinks were served when ordered & then another wait for dessert.
We took a friend so it was fine as we could chat,our table was right next to the kitchen door, so our friend had the waiter & plates going past her all the time which wasn’t very restful.
We will go back at a quieter time so we have some & conversation with the staff.

We had an excellent meal at the Fox and Hounds. We had been using them for takeaways during lockdown and thought we would venture out to have a meal in the garden. They have put a lot of work into ensuring everyone is able to have a meal out whilst maintaining social distancing!

My friend and I went out for a lovely summer evening to take advantage of the "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme. We had a delightful waiter who was coping well with a very busy evening. We ordered the Moules Frites, side salad and white wine. However there were no frites available as they had all sold out so had sweet potato fries instead. The food was delicious, and I especially liked the garlic wine sauce with the mussels. My only 2 suggestions are 1, the tables outside need candles and 2) a small piece of bread would be great to mop up the wonderful sauce. Overall a great evening out! Highly recommend this country pub.

Wonderful little pub with a great menu. Excellent service and food and a lovely NZ sauvignon blanc!
We had the fishfinger sandwich and the soup with sticky toffee pudding for dessert. All was absolutely amazing. My husband said the sandwich was the best he’d ever had.
We’ve just booked in to go again in a couple of weeks!

The food was delicious and the staff were friendly and professional ..the food was maybe a little expensive, especially the dessert but we will be back.
We liked the history of the pirate .. they should maybe place more info around the pub. My sons found it really interesting.

Unfortunately we will not be returning to the fox and hounds as they served raw chicken nuggets to the children in our group. Luckily the mums got to it before the children ate them.

Nice setting with very friendly staff and good atmosphere. We were surprised that only one pie-of-the-day was available at a 7pm reservation and that was tasty but significantly smaller than expected. Fish and chips, liver, and burger meals were all fine, nicely cooked and well presented.
3 of 4 of us had desserts. Sticky toffee puddings with custard were good. Belgian waffles with salted caramel ice cream were somewhat disappointing; ice cream was great but waffles were neither crisp nor warm.
