WE’RE MAKING A COMEBACK ON MONDAY 17TH MAY

Book your place now

You’ve spent most of 2021 going for a “nice walk”, drinking warmish wine you forgot to chill and re-watching Line of Duty, BUT not for much longer.

Our pub is staging a comeback and we’ll be opening our doors from Monday 17th May. If you’re already imagining that first sip of freshly poured beer, book your table now online.

We hope you’re as excited as we are, so start weaning yourself off the loungewear and we look forward to seeing you soon.

If you can’t wait that long, why not sip on flagship Greene King beers from our Online Beer Shop.

Welcome to the

Fox & Hounds

 

With its Tudor-style black and white beamed façade, the Fox & Hounds looks like the pub that time forgot. In reality, however, the pub is not a Tudor structure at all, but a 20th-century construction built to replace the original Fox & Hounds pub which burnt down in the 1920s. Despite its deceptively young age, the building maintains its quintessentially British, old-world appearance and traditional charm. Despite its relatively small size, Peterborough manages to pack quite the punch when it comes to heritage. Chief among its historic attractions is its magnificent Norman cathedral, whose finely proportioned façade is a riot of Gothic arches and gables. During the medieval era, Peterborough Cathedral was one of the most significant abbeys in the country. It has been the burial site for not one but two queens: Catherine of Aragon and Mary, Queen of Scots. Local history also takes centre stage at the nearby Peterborough Museum, whose compelling collections include more than 200,000 fascinating items, ranging from Jurassic fossils to an original Victorian operating theatre. Concealed under the museum are the supposedly haunted Priestgate Vaults, which date back to Tudor times. Midweek sees local office workers pile in for team lunches, while families, who often have their furry four-legged companions by their side, come for al fresco feeds at the weekend. On cold winter nights, a real fire blazes inside the Fox & Hounds, creating a cosy atmosphere that invites lingering. When the weather outside is harsh and uninviting, the toasty interior, which was tastefully refurbished in 2015, is the perfect place to hunker down and sip your way through a warming pint of real ale. The pub is a common haunt for ramblers who, hungry from their hikes in the surrounding region, stop in for a celebratory post-trek pint.
