Welcome to the
Fox & Hounds
Tucked away in a secluded corner of Hampshire countryside in Hungerford Bottom, Old Bursledon, the Fox & Hounds pub is a very old pub that dates back to the 16th century. Next door to the main pub building, there is the historic Lone Barn pub restaurant, located in an old renovated barn house dating from 1871 that was carefully relocated, brick by brick, from Winchester in 1974.Inside the Fox & Hounds pub, you’ll find a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere and a traditional pub setting with exposed wooden beams, roaring open fires and candlelit tables. The Lone Barn is a celebration of the agricultural heritage of the Hampshire countryside that surrounds it. Adorning its walls and suspended from its ceilings you’ll find intriguing antique farming tools and equipment that lends a delightfully rustic ambience. The Fox & Hounds pub and Lone Barn is a child-friendly pub restaurant where all the family can enjoy a delicious meal from our superb menu – including seasonal dishes, weekly food specials and sumptuous Sunday roasts. We also have an extensive choice of cask and guest ales to try. Nestled in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, Bursledon is a quaint village alongside the River Hamble, close to Southampton. Throughout history, Bursledon’s waterside location and proximity to lush countryside and plentiful forests have made it the ideal location for boat building. Elephant Boatyard, located in Old Bursledon, formed part of the old dockyards where Henry VIII's fleet was built – archaeologists have even found some submerged remains of the fleet in the River Hamble. In the late 19th century, the industrial revolution brought about the decline of wooden shipbuilding, so the village reverted to farming and in particular, the cultivation of strawberries.
