We recently visited The Fox and Hounds in Englefield Green for the purpose of this review, for Sunday Lunch and had an excellent experience. There was a great atmosphere in the pub – with dogs and all generations of the family made very welcome. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food generous in size and delicious too.
What did we eat?
To start we had a couple of starters to share and chef was extra generous as he sent us some Chipotle Beef Tacos as an extra dish to sample. We ordered the Garlic and Herb Camembert and the Salt and Pepper Squid.
After our mains my husband and I both enjoyed the Roast Lamb. It was just fantastic – the meat cooked so well and the plate packed full with a good mixture of vegetables, roast potatoes, yorkshire pudding and plenty of gravy. It was honestly the best roast I have eaten in a long time and we will be visiting again soon to eat it again!
What was the children’s menu like?
Our children picked their meals off the children’s menu. On the children’s menu you get a main course and pudding for £10 per child. My yongest ordered a Margherita Pizza which was cooked in the wood-fired pizza oven and my eldest enjoyed the fish and chips. Again the portions were generous in size and my children enjoyed there meals, although they couldn’t finish them!
Other options on the children’s menu were Grilled Chicken Breast and Chips, Cheeseburger and Chips, Pasta with Butter or Tomato Sauce or Hot Dog and Chips. For dessert the children can have Vanilla Soft Serve Ice Cream.
What did we have for dessert?
For dessert we enjoyed a Berry Sunday and Warm Chocolate Brownie and Ice Cream. Again both were well presented and very tasty.
Is there outdoor seating and a play area?
There is outdoor seating, under a stretch tent, perfect for the unpredictable British weather!
There is no play area at the pub, but see below for some suggestions of places you can visit nearby.
What is near The Fox and Hounds?
The pub is located just down the road from the Bishopsgate enterance into Windsor Great Park, so it’s a fantastic place to go if you want to team a visit to the pub with a walk in the Great Park. It is also not too far from The Savill Garden and Obelisk pond if you fancy walking there too. Runnymede Pleasure Grounds and Runnymede National Trust are not too far away from the pub by car either.
Where can we park?
The pub has it’s own car park, the address is Bishopsgate Rd, Englefield Green, Egham, Surrey, TW20 0XU

Would you recommend the pub?
I highly recommend you add The Fox and Hounds to your list of pubs to visit. We had such a lovely meal, loved the atmosphere and felt very welcome as a family. Plus it’s in a great location for exploring Windsor Great Park and Runnymede.
