    3 of us for lunch, I ordered wild mushroom starter, was very dry and sadly tasteless, no seasoning at all, I ordered chicken supreme, I was disappointed, I expected a breast not chicken on the bone and it was a very small piece of chicken, and tender stem broccoli, I think there were 6 stems only 3 of which had heads on? Where were the others and they were far too undercooked for me. My partner had the shredded chicken starter and for main a burger, he was happy with both

    Excellent pub restaurant. High quality food served professionally. Tables well spaced to maintain privacy, but not too distant you feel you're in an aircraft hangar. Real ales of superb quality and apparently the same goes for the wines!

    We were on holiday in the area and had researched this pub in advance. The reviews did not let us down, as the food was outstanding. Our Sunday lunch was beautifully cooked. The food was well presented and tasted fantastic. Everyone was helpful, friendly and professional and this ensured that the pub’s ambiance was very comfortable. We would not hesitate to recommend a visit.

    The food was delicious. Service was good in the evening, very attentive as there were lots of waitresses. When we booked we mentioned on OpenTable we were celebrating a birthday, with a subtle reminder during the evening (we sang happy birthday) & absolutely no mention of this was made so not sure if this got through? The restaurant was not very busy but did lack a little atmosphere, some background music would have been nice. And finally, we knew they closed at 10pm but we didn’t need so many reminders. Luckily, the food was lovely, couldn’t fault it!

    Frustratingly inconsistent. The wrong wine was brought to the table, & when corrected, the replacement bottle was lukewarm. My starter (Crispy chicken) was good, my wife's garlic mushrooms were slightly undercooked & bland. I wanted to order the slow cooked Bourbon BBQ Beef Short Rib only to be told they had no beef!! (this on a Friday evening at 7.30pm - who's in charge of the ordering) so I went for the Steak & Ale Pie - and recognized it as being from a local supplier in Bromyard. It was okay, but not what I would have expected from a former 5star rated restaurant. My wife ordered Beef Birria, served on a Tortilla Bowl. Whilst her beef was okay, the Tortilla Bowl was overcooked & too dry. We had decided to try the Fox & Hounds because it was recommended to us - I don't thin we'll be going again!

    The Fox & Hounds at LulsleyResponded on August 23, 2022Hi David. Apologies you did not enjoy your time with us. Your table was checked on by our Team but you unfortunately did not raise any issues - we would naturally have done all we could to remedy the situation. As all our dishes are freshly prepared on site, we can not always legislate for an unforeseen spike in demand on certain dishes. As for our Proper Pies, they are all homemade on site using Knightwick meat and prepared by our Kitchen - certainly not bought in. Thank you for the feedback.

    We enjoyed our visit, the food was great, we had plenty of room, the service was a little intrusive and as a consequence we feed back to the manager who took the feedback in good spirits. Hopefully this will put the service right which will move this into a great experience.

    The food and service were very good. Plenty of choices on the menu. There are various dining areas, we were seated in the large dining area where there was only one other table occupied which meant there was not much ambience. Otherwise an enjoyable meal. Would definitely visit again.
