At the Fox & hounds we are proud to serve locally sourced fresh meat, vegetables and seafood. Our food is wholesome, tasty and Rachel (our head chef) makes arguably the best steak & ale pie in the Moors. Our menu offers vegetarian and vegan options, and we are open for diners every day of the week from 12-2.00pm and 6-9pm (5-8pm on Sundays). food is available in both the bar and the fox & hounds’ restaurant.

Good Beer and wine have been served on the site of the fox & hounds since 1555 and we are proud to be continuing this tradition. As a free house, we choose to serve a range of quality Yorkshire ales and premium continental lagers. We have an extensive wine list with many bottles available by the glass and for the designated driver we have a selection of alcohol-free beers, cider, wine and gin.
