Review of Fox & Hounds
Posted Petra GCustomer visited Apr 2013by
A restaurant (I guess some might say a Gastropub) that repeatedly offers lovely fresh food and haven't sold out the the low cost rubbish chains that exist nearby.
We've been 3 times and each time have had lovely food with great service. But don't go to the fox and hounds as we may not get a table.
