The Fox and Hounds is a family run pub and restaurant owned by Griffins Butchers in Newbury.
It prides itself on serving locally sourced, homemade fresh food and carefully chosen cask ales.
Located in the picturesque village of Donnington and overlooked by Donnington Castle, the pub was transformed in to a traditional local destination by the Vine family.
The ethos of the Vine family runs through the pub, and they use only the best, most fresh local produce to help the head chef create modern, expressive, seasonal dishes.
All meat is supplied by Griffin’s Butchers and they offer a host of dishes, straight from the butcher’s block, including T-bone, fillet, ribeye, sirloin, rump and gammon.
