The inn is situated near the lovely village of Danby and has wonderful views over the North Yorkshire moors. The bedroom facilities were nice and clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The standard menu choice was predominantly English, with various meat dish selections such as Sirloin Steak, , Pork fillet, Lamb Shank, Gammon and Chicken breast. The portions...

We went to The Fox & Hounds as part of a walk from Danby. There's clearly lots of history in the pub and a few decent ales on tap. The food looked good but we just went for a beer! A decent pub overall.

Busy, bustling pub with great atmosphere and a quieter, very nice restaurant just off the side. Good menu, lots of specials, staff very attentive and nothing too much trouble. Would definitely go back.....we struggled to find anywhere nearly this attractive in the area.

We stayed at the Fox and Hounds weekend 17th February. We had never taken our dog to a B&B and didnt know what to expect. We had a fantastic time.

Only stayed the one night and wished it had been for longer. We ate in the restaurant, and all four of us agreed it was one of the best meals we'd had in a long time. Full marks must also go to the staff....from the guy that checked us in, to the girl serving breakfast, we were all made to...

We stayed for just one night with our dog. The room was totally adequate for our needs and we had a good nights sleep. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble. We had a lovely meal in the evening and breakfast was great. We will definitely return.
