A really nice pub in the middle of Lyndhurst with friendly staff and good food. Varied menu of typical pub food but something for everyone. We chose to share a starter of calamari with smoked paprika aioli which was excellent. For main course my husband had the pie of the day which is served with mash, greens and a little... More

Lovely pub! Nice food, good atmosphere and friendly staff. Didn't have to wait long for our food and it was presented well. Would definitely eat there again.

Great beer, great company, great staff in a lively and vibrant town centre pub. Had already eaten when we went there, so didn't sample the menu, but food looked very good.

Had a lovely dinner here after a day walking in the new forest. Pub had great atmosphere, and was busy, but not so loud that we could not have a conversation. Service was excellent (and the pie very tasty!)

Served by Nelson and Maria. Nice surroundings. Recently refurbished. Really good lunch. Decent value and good service. Had fish and chips, falafel burger and kids had fish and chips from the children's menu. Worth a visit.

Very accomodating with our large dog and baby combo. Many places aren't. Easy going polite service and given the location not over priced. It was refreshing to be served a steak sandwich exactly as I'd asked for it. Most places give you medium or well done whatever you ask for. Food was perfect, worth a visit!

We booked for dinner on Good Friday as there was live music. The entertainment was very good which has increased my rating from average to very good. Good service but very average food. My husband and I started with the fish sharing platter which had smoked salmon and squid which were delicious but the cod goujons were mainly batter and... More

Whilst on holiday in Lyndhurst, we visited the Fox & Hounds a few times for an evening meal. We were made to feel very welcome, as was our dog. The food is all deliciously fresh and very tasty. I can highly recommend the linguine and also the rotisserie chicken.
