Four of us dined for Sunday lunch, it was brilliant, three really good courses each and well priced for the quality. Nice friendly staff and suitably far off the beaten track to give it a real feel of exclusivity. This is an excellent pub and restaurant and I would recommend it to anyone, although not sure it would appeal to... More

Have been for dinner many times and it never fails to deliver. Great food, lovely atmosphere and good service. This time there were 10 of us, so perhaps the largest number that could be accommodated, but that was not a problem. Usual high standards. Would highly recommend.

Fab lunch at the Fox & Hounds in Knossington. Staff were great, Food was very nice, pub decor had a nice country pub feel to it. If the sun is out, then grabbing a table outside is well worth it.

This was a lovely dining pub with great staff. The waitress went out of her way to ensure we had a great experience. The garden was very pretty and would be delightful in the warmer weather.

This is a beautiful village pub with quaint interior and good service. Downside is the food is a little old fashioned - lots of quite rich and heavy sauces. But the food is good, atmosphere good and service good. Menu just needs a little modernisation.
