We were a party of 3 Mothers,4 other adults and 2 children, all wanting different things, so you might think we would be a challengef or the waiters; but you would be wrong. They got every detail right and brought a whole table of food while it was hot. The Mother's Day menu was good and thoughtful,with small portion children's... More

My Wife and I arrived at the Fox and Hounds fancying a Roast Beef Lunch followed by a Cheeseboard and a nice glass of Red Wine. It was a Sunday so we knew it would be more expensive than usual. We weren't quite expecting £65. The Sunday lunch was £13.50 for 1 course, £17.75 for 2 courses or £20.50 for... More

Excellent service, staff very friendly an efficient, and enough people to make sure all tables are looked after, food also excellent, well cooked, well presented, a very varied menu. Wine list is a bit limited, a couple of fine wines would be a welcome addition, other than that, no adverse coments at all, a very bright, clean, and welcoming place!

Another wonderful meal at the Fox and Hounds. I had the beef off the Sunday lunch menu and it was cooked to perfection, with delicious potatoes and veg to accompany. The Amaretti and Cherry cheesecake was superb and excellent real ales including Purple Moose brewery Elderflower Ale.

The Fox and Hounds has a large carpark, and is very easy to find just off the main rd through Shawbury. It's one of the only local pubs to serve food from lunchtime right till late evening, 9 or 10pm. It's an old style, open plan country pub, with a solid, comfortable setting. The menu has a decent variety and... More

Lovely menu selection for lunch time and service was prompt but not intrusive. We did however want to have a starter drink at the bar, just to chill with our friends but the waitress seemed anxious to seat us at our table, would have preferred a more relaxed start to the meal but will visit again.

I have been a regular at the F&H now for nearly 18 months and have recently come to the realisation that I have yet to have an experience there that doesn't involve some form of disappointment with the service. As a general rule, the food is consistently good and the quality of the offering rarely disappoints. This, along mainly with... More
