Gastro Pub
We have been at The Fox and Hounds since 2000 and we pride ourselves on remaining true to the traditional sense of the term 'gastropub' with equal attention paid to 'gastro' and 'pub'! We have a regularly changing Mediterranean menu with daily specials, an international wine list and a full range of beers, including 4 real ales on tap at any one time.
Please call if you would like to book at table. We can also cater for parties of up to 30 people in the 'cottage'.

Traditional pub with good selection of beers and great wine. The biggest surprise is how good and consistent the food is. Whether you fancy Italian specialised dishes or a straight up Sunday lunch it is all excellent

This place was recommended to us so we had high hopes. On the plus side we loved the ambiance - very cosy - and the service was excellent also. However, it was let down by the food. Two of us ordered a buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad with pomegranate seed/pine nuts etc. which sounded very nice. However, when it arrived - despite looking beautiful there were no tomatoes and instead we got figs, with neither of us like! We complained and the waitress said that 'sometimes the chef changes it' but that no-one had updated the menu. She took our plates away and swapped the figs for tomato - which turned out to be one quartered hard 'orange' coloured tomato, with no dressing - not the nice ripe red Italian vine tomatoes we had imagined. And certainly not enough for the generous service of mozzarella. Plus by the time we got it back my husband was halfway through his starter while we just sat there. He had the hot smoked salmon and said it was 'average'. Mains were reasonable - and my monkfish was excellent, but the damage had been done. This was compounded when we ordered coffee and a dish of profiteroles to share, to be told they had 'no coffee' as their delivery hadn't arrived! What wrong with going to Tesco?! All in all a rather disappointing experience - especially as they include 12.5% service charge as standard. We could have removed it, but the service itself as very good and it wasn't the waiting staff's fault!

Just wanted to say huge thank you to the team at the Fox and hounds‘s for being so lovely and accommodating. I have recently broken my leg and they couldn’t have been more helpful on what was an exceptionally busy night for them.
Going out after a major Op and being so incapacitated is quite daunting but I felt so welcome and had such a great time and it has really aided my recovery


The food is always excellent and the service is great there highly recommended!!

Thanks so much

Went here for new years eve 2019 and booked a table for dinner only. We were seated in a cosy corner tucked away which was perfect as we weren't there to drink/party. Food menu was slightly limited but appreciate it's a busy night for them, and we were very happy with what we did have. Really lovely festive atmosphere but not chaotic or unpleasant. Staff were very pleasant and perfectly attentive, not imposing but there when we needed them. Food came quickly and after this first visit would definitely go back here again.

Great tasty food, lovely traditional pub vibe. Shame seating is limited to 2 hours as we would have loved to stay longer but given how popular they are it makes sense. More of a restaurant than a place to just sit and have drinks.

my roast chicken was overdone - the meat was very dry. the accompaniments were also a little bland (potatoes/parnips/carrots were done very simply).

others' food was much better

Living locally I had heard it was a good place for Sunday roast. The roast beef was excellent but the Pork unfortunately had chewy crackling not good. As other reviews the vegetables needed some greens. The ambiance was very friendly and the staff very welcoming. Will return

We've been to this pub a few times now for Sunday lunch as it's got a great atmosphere and does a lovely roast. This time most of us had roast beef, which was absolutely delicious. Other options weren't as great, and the puddings were a bit disappointing, but overall we'll look forward to coming back.

Absolutely love the Fox and Hounds. The food is always outstanding, the fact that the kitchen doesn't have a single microwave is testament to how well run the kitchen. The staff are always friendly and actually have personality, in London that can be hard to come by. We love coming here and will continue to for many years!!!

Found and booked this one evening on the spur of the moment - a lovely, warm and inviting pub with an inviting yet different menu from standard pub fayre. We shared three mains which were all lovely and well presented. One of the hot desserts initially came out cold but this was quickly rectified by the staff when brought to their attention. Good beer selection on tap. Would visit again.

The service was quite bad, we were forgotten about a lot. My crumble arrived cold but when I sent it back they got annoyed and tried to claim it was hot...
We each paid individually but they claimed we had under paid by £11. Turns out he added the wrong amount into the till but they didn't apologise; I had to take each of the card receipts and add them up in front of him to prove my point.
The roast was good but the pork had clearly been sat out for a long time as the fat was rock hard.
Doubt I will return.

This has always been one of the best pubs in the neighborhood, and probably the best gastropub. Alas, as the competition has fallen away due to closures, they have become somewhat guilty of resting on their laurels. The abience is still very pleasant, as is the garden. The range of beer is good and the bar staff friendly. However, the prices are steep, verging on the eye-watering (My golden ale cost me £6.10 a pint!!!)

The menu is good , but the food quality mixed. The Paella my brother had wes excellent, my ribeye was very over done, and the reaction of the waiter to my comment to that effect was utter disinterest which was vey annoying, given how over-attentive the staff were ehne we arrived (we were asked for our ourder by three different waiting staff within 2 minutes of sitting down with our drinks), not to mention the cost (£22 for medium sized steak is not exactly a bargain).

So... when its gfood its very good, but its not entirely reliable and becomning too expensive.

Good atmosphere – pretty quiet when I arrived but got a lot busier and still had a buzzy atmosphere when it wasn't that busy. We would definitely return for another visit. The pasta was a particular highlight, and the other dishes were all good – nice and different to traditional pub food, but still some of that available. Service was casual and friendly and beers were good value.
