The Fox & Hounds

Vegetarians have their own extensive menu

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 Taylor's parents bought the pub over 30 years ago, and in her hands and that of her husband Vincent's, they have 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 duck filled filo parcels and plum sauce, followed by pan-fried fillets of sea bass and stir-fry vegetables, and ending with pear and almond tart with vanilla custard. There is a separate vegetarian menu of dishes that can be chosen as a starter or a main, such as pea mash and asparagus flan with hollandaise sauce. Beers include local Black Sheep, while the wine choice is global in scope. Home-made produce such as jams and chutneys are available to buy. The entire wine list is available by the glass.
