Housed in a stone building dating back to 1702, in the area which inspired Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, The Fox & Hounds is a country-style pub serving modern British food with a Mediterranean flair. A fully-covered decked area allows for al fresco dining, while the wooden floors, exposed beams and local art on the walls inside give the bar & restaurant a cosy, rustic atmosphere.

With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Fox & Hounds menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.

The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Fox & Hounds bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.

The Fox & Hounds in Harlestone is a 10-minute drive from Northampton Rail Station.

    The food was scrumptious and they accommodated our needs, even leaving the table open for us despite our late arrival. Great service too.

    Friendly staff and fine dining. All servings were very much enjoyed by the four of us?
    (Being a tad pedantic, the free spritzer is a good idea but too much ice means initially too cold and then too 'watered down'.

    I booked a table for Bank Holiday Monday lunch time at the Fox and Hounds as I thought it would be very busy. The restaurant was barely half full which was a pleasant surprise. My wife and I were seated immediately and ordered drinks which came quickly whilst we perused the menu. My choice of Lamb Koftas as a starter was OK but a little dry and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the potted crab and crayfish. Main courses of fillet steak (cooked perfectly rare as requested) and sea bream were both excellent. The meal was washed down with 2 glasses of prosecco for my wife whilst I chose a large glass of a very good Argentinian Malbec. Service was excellent and the food and drink were served at exactly the right pace. The bill came to just over £70 to which I added £10 as a tip. We have dined at the Fox and Hounds regularly and have rarely been disappointed.
