The Fox & Hounds


In the sleepy village of Carthorpe, the cosy Fox & Hounds has been a country inn for over 200 years, and the old anvil and other tools from its time as a smithy are still evident. Landlady Helen Talyor's parents bought the pub over thirty years ago, and in the her hands and that of her husband Vincent's, they have certainly established an excellent reputation for their food which comes from named suppliers and the daily delivery of fresh fish. A typical dinner could begin with grilled black pudding with roasted apple, followed by half roasted Gressingham duckling with orange sauce, parsley and thyme stuffing and apple sauce, and finish with bramble and almond tart. There is a separate vegetarian menu of dishes that can be chosen as a starter or a main, such as caramelised onion and goats' cheese tart. Beers include local Black Sheep, while the wine choice is global in scope. Home-made produce such as jams and chutneys are available to purchase.
