We won Michelin BIB Gourmand again!

3rd year running & the only restaurant in Hertfordshire to win in 2015. A Bib Gourmand is a recognition by the Michelin Guide for establishments offering good food at reasonable prices.

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.

The Fox & Hounds is featured in all good guides including Michelin, AA Best Pubs, Alastair Sawday's Special Places & CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
