The Fox and Hounds

2 High Street, HUNSDON, SG12 8NH

Eye-catching features at this family-run free house include the unusual white-tiled bar-back, and a striking poster reading 'Nous sommes les soiffards', which, tactfully translated, suggests a fondness for drink. Chef James and wife Bianca run things and together they've created an easy-going place, where Adnams and local ales hold court at the bar, and lunch and dinner can be taken in the elegant, chandeliered dining room. James uses a Josper charcoal oven to cook Isle of Man queenie scallops and seaweed butter; and Scotch Black Angus côte de boeuf, but you could also try the shepherd's pie and mashed swede or roast fillet of cod, fennel, saffron potatoes and mussel bourride. Finish with apple tart fine, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream or griottine cherry and almond tart. Outside is a tree-shaded garden with a covered terrace.
