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 4 real ales on tap at any one time.

We have a T-bone steak night on Monday night with BYO £5 corkage.

Please call if you would like to book at table. We can also cater for parties of up to 30 people in the 'cottage'.

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.

Had a fun Friday night out here with a few girlfriends, which was made better by the great food, wine and service! Would always highly recommend this pub.

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!

Fox and Hounds is by far the best pub in Battersea. The atmosphere is very cosy and perfect for catching up with friends or date night.

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.

We had a late lunch and found the Yorkshire pudding and potatoes a bit dry but overall the rest of the food and service was good

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.

I have been visiting The Fox and Hounds regularly since moving to Battersea in 2011 and have always had good experiences. Not on this occasion, however. We had guests visiting from Scotland who were treating my husband and I to dinner. I was deeply embarrassed when the bar staff refused to accept Scottish notes, saying they had had a fake note some time ago and decided to refuse Scottish legal tender from then on. There are several simple methods to ensuring notes are genuine without alienating visitors from north of the border. How many English fake notes have been passed? The barman told me George and Richard Manus who own the pub made the decision. May I urge you to reverse it, it was a bad one, so I can once again bring guests from Scotland to your fine Battersea hostelry.

As always, a delicious meal served by their really friendly and professional staff. Our guests included adults, children and a dog - all left having been very well looked after. I highly recommend Fox & Hounds to anyone wanting to experience gastropub food at its best, in a lovely setting with great service!

We had never been to the Fox and Hounds before but were very pleasantly surprised how well run it was - all the staff were delightful and helpful, the food was delicious and the servings generous. And the house wine was good too. Highly recommended - we could even park nearby.

Lovely experience as always at the Fox & Hound. The only thing I’d ever mark them down on is value as it is expensive for pub fare but it doesn’t detract away from the experience and we’ll definitely be back. Food and service were excellent.
