High Street, UFFINGTON, SN7 7RP
Amidst the thatched cottages and 13th-century church in the charming village of Uffington, The Fox & Hounds boasts unrivalled views of The Ridgeway and the Uffington White Horse. Writer John Betjeman once lived across the road from the pub and JRR Tolkein was a frequent visitor - legend has it that St George slew the dragon at nearby Dragon Hill. This is a traditional free house with a range of well-kept real ales; the home-cooked food includes a tapas menu, pub favourites and daily specials; the Sunday roasts are ever popular. Contact the pub for details of its summer beer festival and live music events.
