Sunday Lunch
Casual
We have been at The Fox and Hounds since 2000 and we pride ourselves on remaining true to the traditional sense of the term 'gastropub' with equal attention paid to 'gastro' and 'pub'! We have a regularly changing Mediterranean menu with daily specials, an international wine list and a full range of beers, including real ales on tap.

In order to keep everyone safe during this difficult time we have a temporary plan:
The maximum number of people per reservation will be 6.
To allow as many people as possible to enjoy the pub reservations will be for 2 hours.
Payments by card/contactless only.
Face coverings are to be worn whilst moving around the pub.
Children are welcome during lunch and 6pm dinner reservations.
To allow safe traffic through the pub no buggies or dogs are to be brought into the pub.

Please call or email thefoxbattersea@gmail.com if you would like to book a table.

I really like this pub. The food on Tuesday was not to its usual standard. I did mention this at the time. A pity but generally a really nice independent pub with excellent service and takes dogs too!

Such a lovely place but the Sunday roast did not reach our expectations. Chicken was dry and poor quality, so were the potatoes. Shame for a price tag at £17.5 !

I am really lucky this is my local. The people who work here are just lovely and make the place special.

I met 2 friends here and we had lovely food. It was busy without being too loud as well. I will definitely have to come down more often.

My favourite pub in Battersea/Clapham. Service is excellent, the atmosphere is fun and buzzy. The food is exceptional - the halibut with clams and crushed potatoes, highly recommend. V good value wine (the macon was delicious). We ended up staying there for 5.5hrs!

Outstanding service, especially for a big table with toddlers and various levels of decision making. Would be nice to have extra Yorkshire puds and actual fish and chips for the fussy kid eaters. Thanks for a fantastic afternoon, the roasts (and other food) were sensational!

Great pub with great atmosphere and good food.
We used to live opposite the pub about 10 years ago so it was lovely to be back there !
Will be the pub to go to when we come back to Battersea for sure

This is my husband and my favourite go-to place in the neighborhood. Always friendly staff, amazing food, and the Christmas ambience was lovely. I had the papardelle and my husband the beef roast and both absolutely delicious! The food is on the slightly expensive side but it's worth it. This is one of the best pubs in Clapham!

Amazingly good chips. Like the way some items (the best items) have stayed on the menu for years. Duck leg with lentils, Italian sausages and onion marmalade for example. Good wine list still.

This is my local and I’ve been coming here for years. I love the menu and the friendliness. It gets a bit loud at busy times and they’ve take to ramping up the music too loud for my taste. But otherwise it’s great!

Food was very tasty and good value for money. Quiet, cosy pub, perfect for a good natter with friends! Staff were very friendly and attentive. We were sitting around the corner, away from the main section, but we weren’t forgotten about. Lovely evening.

I would recommend this place, the staff is friendly and present, a rarity in London. They do need to cut back on the salt in the food. It kind of ruined my return to the restaurant. The wild boar was like drinking the Dead Sea. Take note. I’ll return simply because the staff seems to care.

The service here is always lovely. It was a very quiet evening so not much atmosphere. Antipasti was very disappointing - no flavour and relatively small. Mains ok but works out expensive for what it is especially given service charged is whacked on top. Will think twice before returning which is a shame as lovely local place previously.

Nice selection for Sunday lunch with lots of optios as well as roasts. Despite being busy the service was good. Other food was excellent but the pototoes and parsnips with the roasts were under-cooked.

Could have had a different gravey for the different meats. Roast potatoes could have been more crispy and indulgence but overall not bad and a good solid roast. Tiramisu a bit dry, and we did mention this to the staff, but sticky toffee very good. Wouldn't get roast again but would like to try their other dishes.
