Fox & Hounds Restaurant & Bar

Situated in the historic village of Houston, The Fox & Hounds is a traditional country pub that offers an unconventional yet refreshing dining experience in spectacular fashion.

With our Signature skewered kebabs, plentiful homemade burger choices and our succulent Ayrshire steaks served on a hot lava stone at 350 degrees, The Fox and Hounds really does give you an experience to tell your friends about. (Every Wednesday all of the above dishes can be enjoyed at 25% off!)

The Fox and Hounds has three beautifully crafted areas, each with their own unique character and dining experience.

The traditional, dog friendly Vixens bar situated at the front of the pub boasts an incredible 128 Whiskies! Furthermore, we have an extensive gin, rum and wine selection, accompanied by 5 Real Ale pumps that on rotation offer one of the biggest selections of Real Ales in the country, making the Vixens bar an ideal spot to sit in front of a crackling fire and enjoy some traditional Fish and Chips or Steak Pie.

Upstairs, our Hunters bar offers a more modern approach to dining. Our home–made burgers, our sharing platters and our delicious salads served in warm tortilla bowls are the perfect accompaniment

for one of our Foxy signature cocktails – a brand new menu which holds its own against any high-end city centre cocktail bar but with the added bonus of village pub prices.

Adjacent to the bar, our pool table area houses large screen TVs with Sky Sports for all your sporting needs.

Finally, the idyllic Stables restaurant offers an exceptional culinary experience. Freshly prepared dishes are carefully crafted by our head chef and served up in a delightful, candle lit environment that is perfect for family gatherings, birthdays, or romantic nights out. The Stables Restaurant is also available for larger events such as corporate dinners, christenings and weddings.

Here at the Fox and Hounds we believe in a personable, interactive approach when catering for your occasion, so get in touch now to speak to a member of our team. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
