I took my wife there for her Birthday lunch in December. We had a lovely meal and although the bar was busy we had the dining room to ourselves. Nice food and friendly service

Hadn’t been here for a few years so thought we’d give it another try. Wish we had listened to previous reviews and gone elsewhere. It wasn’t busy but it took 40 minutes before our order was taken. Staff were not rude, just seemed disinterested. Steak...More

We called in with couple of friends for a pre-Christmas lunch. First surprise was that there was no lunchtime menu, just straight a la carte, and prices were West End in East Herts. However, we were there so had to go with the flow. Service...More

We visited for dinner. The food was okay, although overpriced, and the cheeseboard was very disappointing. We could not have Irish coffee as the waitress informed us it was not allowed. Our waitress was disinterested and the manager of the restaurant did not acknowledge us...More

At the Fox & Hounds, the atmosphere & service is friendly & informal with select local beers & a choice of continental lagers & great wines. Diners have the option of eating award-winning Chef, James Rix' sophisticated, but simple menu in the bar, lounge, or the superb chandeliered dining room. In the summer months, you can enjoy eating on our heated, covered terrace. All our steaks are now cooked on the Josper oven, along with whole fish, squid, scallops in their shell and mussels. Our whole ribs of beef for Sunday lunch are also finished in the oven. The oven keeps fish really juicy - it cooks fish rapidly with great flavour & keeps flesh moist as well as enhancing the flavour of our steaks from the sweetness of the charcoal.
