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.

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

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.

I have visited before on a Friday in January...really enjoyed food and experience. This time although the service was very good we were all dissappointed with the size of meals ! (All females) I.... for one had the Sea Bass....half a dozen broad beans and the potatoes ....not worth mentioning ! Maybe the waitress should have suggested I may need a side of fries or ? I was thinking of visiting again tomorrow with my husband but not sure now ?

Ordered the Beef Carpaccio and it was frozen!!

Wasn’t a good start to the evening. It made us wonder what other dishes were originally frozen before being served as fresh produce.

They took it off the bill and the rest of the evening was fine.

Family Sunday lunch. As usual the food was great although it would be nice on a weekend to have a mini Sunday roast on the kids menu. The excellent food was let down by poor service. I had to request every stage of the process; “please can we order now”, “ please can you take away the excess wine glasses on the table”, “ please can we see dessert menu”, “ we are ready to order dessert”. The ambience was terrible due to a combination of very poor music and rubbish speakers - the music was super tinney, no depth so instead of being background music it was an annoying and high pitched noise.

We returned to the Fox and Hounds for a family meal as we have always found the restaurant to be reliable and this time was as expected - good food, good service and reasonable value. We will no doubt return again in the future.
