This picture perfect inn is a lovely place to rest and eat with its lovely interior, well presented menu and good quality food at reasonable prices. It's a different story with the rooms however. We paid £165 for the red room which whilst looking swish and done out in a boutique style had a lot of omissions. Firstly on arrival...

The Fox and Hounds was chosen for a family Sunday lunch because of its reputation for food. On the positive side, the location on the green at Exton is lovely. On a damp day it was nice to walk in and be greeted by a roaring open fire, but the atmosphere was very smoky from the logs. There were two...

My wife and I booked The Red Room for a stay to celebrate our anniversary. The management decided to change our room, then the room we were allocated was freezing cold, no heating on. Their work around was to give us a tiny blow heater. We were given blankets to cover us to keep us warm and my wife had...

Hi Viewers. What a perfect place to go for a meal. 7 of us went there for my wife's birthday and all was perfect. We sat around the fire had a drink and looked over the menu and a great menu too. Nothing was rushed and the food perfect. If you are looking for a great place to eat this...

Checked into a very lovely room. Went to the bar for a drink and barman had made it very clear he does not want to be here on New Year's Eve. Asked if we could have something to eat and were offered crisps or nuts only, not impressed is this really how you get customers back. So far I would...

Lovely old hotel in the middle of a gorgeous historic village 5 miles from Oakham and/or Stamford and within a stones throw of Rutland Water. Fantastic and very friendly service throughout, excellent sized rooms, very tasty breakfast, and a lovely old bar. Plenty of parking, easy to find, very comfortable, and highly recommended. We stayed in Room 1, which was...

A number of us came together to celebrate our sons 21st and we couldn't have chosen a better place. Arranged over the phone and deposit paid, the staff were very friendly and helpful on the phone and throughout our stay. When we had to drastically reduce our planned number for dinner due to a conflicting event, there was no worry,...

The interior of the Fox and Hounds is wonderfully oldy woldy and atmospheric... the candles with the all the dripped wax hanging from them on the bar a sight to see! the library just needed an Agatha Christie body in it!

Went here for an evening meal on a Wednesday. Despite being the only two people in the restaurant it was more than a half hour wait between finishing our starter and the main course arriving. When it did, one on the dishes was as expected if a little overdone, but the other was just a mess, I suspect they had...

A great friendly small hotel, good location not far from Oakham. Very good service in the restaurant, both for lunch and breakfast. Spacious comfy room with a large bathroom. Would like to book again and try the evening menu.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fox and Hounds Hotel is a handsome former 17th Century coaching inn that dominates the Green in the picturesque Rutland village of Exton. The building oozes character, with a number of fireplaces for cosy winter evenings and a pretty garden for lazy summer days. Privately owned, you can be assured of a warm welcome, with every amenity to make your stay a pleasurable one. The entire building has benefited from a major refurbishment and now offers four boutique hotel luxury rooms. All rooms are ensuite, are individually decorated, and come with broadband internet, Netflix, digital free view, complimentary White Company toiletries, Egyptian cotton linen & bathrobes in the bathrooms, and Espresso coffee and tea making machine. There is also free parking. Dining at the Fox and Hounds 2 AA Rosette restaurant is a treat. We have recently been awarded a place in the Good Food Guide, (the Waitrose UK's Best Restaurants book). We offer some exceptional seasonal menus, a weekly Prix Fixe lunch menu, and a number of British Classics. We also offer various weekly specials, such as our Tuesday Steak Night (see our Offers & Events page for details). The bar menu offers a quirky take on the British classics, from share platters to sandwiches. For more formal dining, the restaurant and deck offers Modern European inspired dishes. On Sundays, a traditional menu is served from noon. ... more   less
