AS OF THE 20TH MARCH WE ARE CLOSED

It is with great sadness we have called last orders in all our pubs for the time being to support the fight against COVID-19. But don’t worry, we are busy working on opening our doors again with the safety of our teams and customers as our number one priority. While we continue to follow government guidelines, we’re getting excited for the day we can meet again and raise a glass in the pub.

Until then, stay safe, and don’t forget us!

The Fox & Hounds

 

OUR VIRTUAL PUB IS OPEN!

While our pubs are closed, we’ve decided to open a virtual pub, The Lock Inn. We know many of our customers are feeling cut-off from their friends and for some a visit to the pub is the only social contact they will have in a day. The Lock Inn aims to help tackle loneliness and isolation by offering activities and entertainment to encourage interaction. We’re starting with a WEEKLY INTERACTIVE QUIZ on Wednesdays at 6pm and ROCK AND ROLL BINGO every Friday at the same time, with more events and community support activities planned over the coming weeks.

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.
