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.

    This was our 3rd visit to the restaurant. Food was delicious & service excellent. Our waitress Ariel was very attentive. Will definitely visit again!

    Great car parking. Nice bar/restaurant, warm inside on a cold day! The welcome was not quite as warm by staff who seemed preoccupied with a 'shift' change? One was texting on her mobile phone on the steps up to the restaurant area. Menu was good, if priced on the high side. Food was good and served quite swiftly, (the restaurant was quiet on our visit). Couldn't fault the food or presentation. Well done kitchen! Attention by service staff was lacking, I had to get up from the table to find someone to ask for the bill and had to get up again to find someone to pay while my guests waited to leave! Why?
