The Fox & Hounds
Once a historic coaching inn, The Fox & Hounds is the perfect place to seek refuge. Situated in Lyndhurst, the pub offers easy access to the beauties of the New Forest. Decorated in a traditional country style with exposed brick, flagstone floors and wooden beams, it’s the ideal spot to enjoy a bite to eat and a pint of cask ale. Tuck into a hearty plate of smoked mackerel pâté with crème fraîche and a slice of sourdough. If you’re feeling peckish, follow with half a rotisserie chicken with triple-cooked chips and grilled corn, perhaps paired with a glass of Oliver’s Island golden ale. For a tasty vegetarian alternative, enjoy a chickpea falafel burger with cumin mayonnaise. To finish, indulge your sweet-tooth with the likes of vanilla panna cotta with rhubarb, meringue and ginger crumb. With weekly quiz nights, live music evenings and even the occasional ale festival, there’s always an enticing reason to visit The Fox & Hounds.
