Super decor. Lovely staff. Yummy food

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 excellent, very busy and a bit of a wait but well worth it!

We often eat here.
I came for lunch on 28 Feb 2019 with 2 friends.
2 of us had Aubergine curry, the curry was tasty but hardly any vegetables in it, 90% rice, poor value
One had ham and egg. Very good.
Previous meals we have had have been very good.
Service good as usual.

We love the restaurant, but unfortunately one of our party was not very well, so we left before desserts.
Staff, food always good, how ever I was unable to have the non alcoholic beer I was hoping for as there was none in stock.

The restaurant looked great, I loved the decor, contemporary and cozy pub mixed into one. There are different areas of the pub to sit in, we were seated in the restaurant area as opposed to sitting in the bar area or a covered heated outside area. On this occasion I did not take my pooches but dogs are welcome in the bar area. We were welcomed and seated quickly, there was a large girlie party seated next to us and they were a little loud, so we were able to move without much fuss. The service was quick and courteous, the meals were delicious, I had the Sea bass and my Mum had the Beetroot tart. Both were cooked very well, presentation was good. On the whole we had a lovely lunch and would return very soon.
