The Fox & Hounds is a family run pub that's been under the present landlords for some 15 years.
It's one of a dying breed of pubs, being still very much a community centre for the village with a large proportion of residents regular customers (with some more regular than others!).
Dogs and children are most welcome and there are a selection of games to play for the younger ones (children that is, not dogs) and plenty of books and other pastimes for the older folk. The pub has active teams for dominoes and quoits so if you're lucky you'll have a chance to see these traditional games being played with a passion
There's a patio/beer garden to the rear of the pub and a good-sized car park. We also have a dining room that can be 'closed off' for private parties (booking recommended).
The Fox serves its CAMRA award-winning real ales, but we also serve traditional (& not so traditional!) wines, beers and spirits, all at very competitive prices.
We'll usually be serving real ales from The Yorkshire Dales Brewing Company (a big local favourite, brewed just a few miles from the village), Salamander (Bradford), Black Sheep and Theakston (both Masham).
We also have occasional 'guest' ales from around the country, from as far afield as the Orkneys and Cornwall!
The Fox has been in the Good Beer Guide since 1999 and is, of course, in the 2011 edition.
