As one of Englefield Green’s oldest public houses dating back to 1780 we are blessed with an idyllic location right next to the Bishopsgate entrance of Windsor Great Park and a short distance from Guards Polo Club.

We serve delicious home cooked food using fresh seasonal produce all day every day from breakfast with fresh coffee at 9am through to lunch and dinner in our restaurant or bar food in our bar. At the weekends we serve wonderful Sunday roasts with all the trimmings and when the weather is fine there’s an epic BBQ in our beautiful terraced front garden from 12 noon until the sun goes down.

Our first time dining in the formal restaurant area and we were pleasantly surprised at the quietness of the space and the quality of the meal amidst a busy Saturday lunchtime. The service had a few rough edges but the food was excellent and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal.. Thank you.

Lovely food, wonderful service, the waiter couldn’t do enough for us and he was so good with our 5 year old son. The kitchen even made my partners dessert extra special as it was his birthday. Would definitely recommend and will go back again if we are ever in Windsor! Wonderful restaurant

Very disappointed in our visit with friends. Menu was incomplete with curry dish unavailable. Annoyed that we were not advised in advance of this. Unnecessary and very inconsiderate. Waiter was unpleasant. Took order and deserted us! This is the second time in succession that we have been disappointed by our visit. I doubt that we will now return.

Positives: Beautiful pub with a lovely feel to it, friendly staff although a couple of points to mention in negatives. Food OK not outstanding, my colleagues schnitzel was very dry and overcooked as if it had been put in the microwave? Didn't complain at the time she's not a complainer!!!

Negatives: Staff, I feel for this place their dress could have been better, they looked scruffy a nice uniform that is clean would have been nicer. Our waitress whilst lovely and very friendly and professional wore an extremely strong perfume which lingered about every time she visited the table we felt like it was part of the food and not particularly very nice.

One of the waiters was clearly very new as he was clumsy, so we dreaded him bringing anything to the table!!

Nice place not overly enamoured but would visit again.

Lovely country pub/restaurant. Lots of space for all guests. Waiting staff friendly and very efficient, empty bottles/glasses cleared quickly and unobtrusively. Food was very good, except the frozen chips. I would have preferred hand cut but they were extras, so I w will let them off. I would definitely return.

Food was very good and we were looked after very well by the staff. The only disappointing aspect was the temperature of the restaurant. It was an extremely hot day and when we arrived we asked if we could be seated outside in the shade. Apparently because we had booked the restaurant menu this was not possible as only the bar menu was served outside. Indoors despite a fan being brought during our lunch the heat somewhat spoiled our overall enjoyment.

From bumping into old friends at the bar (always a pleasure) to the very last bite of the lobster, a lovely evening for us.
Great food, brilliant service, our South African waiter was attentive and outstanding.
Another top evening. Thanks Fox and Hounds

The setting is beautiful everyone is friendly and welcoming the food is excellent. It was just unfortunate that the table next to us was so noisy we couldn't hear ourselves talk or enjoy our lunch. Overall though we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely come again...

We had a very disappointing lunch at the Fox and Hounds. It was our wedding anniversary and we had been looking forward to a meal in a restaurant we had visited before, most recently in February this year.

The building is lovely and well situated for a walk in the park, perfect except the food was simply awful - the quality questionable, my freshly cooked pizza was served cool and main courses not served together - the service was virtually non existent.

The poor experience was recognised by one member of staff and we were offered a free dessert we didn't want, as an attempt to rectify the situation. It did not work and I will not be revisiting.

Great location. Waited for ages for food. Very limited menu. Pizza was good although they insisted on charging me extra when I asked to change expensive Parma ham for normal ham. Overall very very ordinary

This pub was recommended to me but we must have been there on an off day. The service was very slow, the food orders were confused, we waited long, then the veg of the roast was very gard totally uncooked, and the Yorkshire puddings were burned. Overall very disappointing. Might come back here for a drink.

Main course over priced, over cooked and small portion on both of them, this was from main menu, the set menu was very limited. This was the main restaurant we may try the bar food, if there is a next time, second visit so very disappointed

Great meat dishes, but need better vegetarian option and the seafood pasta needs more sauce and flavour. Staff were very friendly.

Overall we enjoyed our meal and the food was good however we did feel that as one of our party had food intolerances there wasn’t a lot of choice available. The staff did there best to offer menu options that could be adapted, ie food,taken off the plate but no alternatives were offered as a replacement. Opted for a burger which arrived without the cheese and between two slices of gluten free bread. Not the best presentation and burger was average.
We like the Fox And Hounds but feel the menu needs to be updated to include more choice for allergies.
Staff are very nice and attentive.

This is a lovely place, but I was very disappointed with the quality of the food and the noise levels. For me this was meant to be a real treat and it was very disappointing... It was meant to be a treat for mothers day and I will be coming back for a drink - but no food.

Very nice pub restaurant with good decor and atmosphere. Good food and good portions, and my friend especially loved her pizza. Service was a bit slow to order, to clear dishes and for our mains, and we had to chase up on some drinks orders and were not asked if we wanted more drinks or dessert. I appreciate that it was a busy lunch time, and overall we had a great leisurely lunch.

Had been here a year ago and had an amazing meal but was slightly disappointed this time. Food was not of the high standard it was previously. Fish batter was over cooked. Sausage and mash portion was far smaller, Pizza was full of tomato puree and minimal cheese. Bar atmosphere was great and all in a lovely location but not sure I would eat here again. Not great value for money. Great for drinks only though.
