About The Fox & Hounds
The Fox & Hounds, a traditional country pub nestled in the conservation area of Barnston on the Wirral peninsular.
We stock a cracking range of local cask ales, lagers and ciders. Our most popular pint pulled is the locally brewed ‘Trappers Hat’ from Brimstage, just over a mile away. We have a great selection of over 60 malts and whiskies, together with a variety of gins, vodkas and rums. We also have a carefully selected wine list along with a choice of soft and hot drinks.
Our hearty homemade menu is served seven days a week along with our popular Sunday roasts. Wholesome pub classics make up much of our menu, with a number of seasonal and local specials for those looking for something a little different, and to finish an assortment of mouth-watering desserts.
We pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere creating a homely and relaxed pub where we hope you’ll make yourself at home. If there is anything that you would like to know about the pub, or have any special requests please just ask one of the team and we’ll do our very best to help.
Our waitress was very good under the circumstances- the wait for our food was prolonged and was delivered at different times. One member of our party cannot have gluten or dairy and her choice from the menu was extremely limited , then what she did choose was unavailable. Our waitress offered us desserts and tea/coffee on the house which we accepted, unfortunately no sweet was suitable for the gluten and dairy free diner. We've eaten at the Fox and Hounds frequently but I think it will be some time before we make a return trip.
went with a group of 7 and 1 dog. couldn't have been more helpful as they have a dog friendly area. They were late with a starter which was then undercooked but still edible. other than that, the rest of the meals were delicious.
My second visit, food and service was excellent, the waitress served us on both occasions and she was also excellent.
Lovely meal for New Years Eve and great service. We would definitely go again. My husband particularly enjoyed his beef main course and the atmosphere was very relaxed with attentive staff who went out of their way to make it a friendly, enjoyable experience.
Excellent meal and service thank you for a great night out
First visit. Very friendly.Great service. Food wonderful. Lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
EXCELLENT SERVICE. FOOD WAS GORGEOUS. IN ALL A LOVELY MEAL THANK YOU ..
Very much enjoyed our meal on a busy night but were disappointed that 5 of the main course dishes (nearly all fish) were not available. Our table was booked for 7pm and we felt this was too early for that number of dishes to have run out.
3rd time this year, highly recommend food was excellent
Excellent food and great service
First choice for any occasion. Food is delicious and if you need to alter anything it’s never a problem. Staff are always pleasant.
Another lovely meal. Six of us enjoyed an early evening meal in the snug. Good food at a reasonable price. Non of us could eat a sweet as we were that full. See you again soon!!
Warm atmosphere & lovely christmas tree ⛄️🎄
Lovely evening, great service and amazing food.
We booked a table for 3.for 1.30pm however by 2.30pm our table was still occupied.A very helpful waitress asked if we would mind moving to the snug.We did so.As we would ha e had to leave our booked table by 3.15pm it would have been impossible.The third person had to leave as she had to return to work.( we are not all retired with plenty of time to wait)Apart from the waitress we were not at all happy with the service .multiple bookings on a table are all very well if your customers have the decency to move on their allotted time.We felt you were more concerned about upsettin g the. current diners and frankly couldn't care if we were upset. Food was great but the management leaves much to be desired .Bar staff not great ,the only person who was I. The slightest. Bit concerned was the young waitress .Look forward to your reply .S.Tonelli .
Lovely evening, very busy as to be expected, difficult at times to hear conversation because of background noise. However, food delicious and service excellent.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable christmas meal. Good, pleasant friendly service, very tasty food and a good price. Many thanks. I have been telling friends and family how nice it was and members of the group who hadn't been before said they would definitely go back for another meal.
Best place for a roast. Come here regularly and never disappointed. Always recommend. Enjoyed so much yesterday been back again today.
Lovely time for my wife’s birthday. Nice time and good food with good service. Than you.
Great service fantastic food
Fabulous evening made all the more special by our waitress, she was dressed as an Elf with blonde pigtails & couldn’t have been more helpful! Food was fabulous as always & my G&T was fabulously presented with all the trimmings. We’ll be back soon that’s for sure! X
I always love a visit to The Fox & Hounds. Great food, great atmosphere and great service. On this occasion, I was not too keen on the table where we sat. It felt a little placed in a thoroughfare and each time the door opened, there was a draught. My next visit, I will ask for a table in the conservatory. My favourite place to dine.
