New Fox and Hounds team wins its first award

Just weeks after taking up the reins at popular village pub, the Fox and Hounds, Llancarfan, husband and wife team,  Jim and Rhiannon Dobson, have secured an AA four-star rating for the pub and a rosette for the food.

Jim, head chef, and Rhiannon, front of house manager, are delighted with this accolade.  Rhiannon says,

“It’s fantastic news, and a great endorsement of everything we are trying to achieve, creating a warm, welcoming village pub, with an excellent and varied menu to suit all tastes and pockets, along with comfortable rooms for those who want to extend  their stay.  We hope this will encourage lots more people to visit us, and sample the fantastic ‘Fox’ hospitality."

Cardiff Life Review

Thank you to our friends at Cardiff Life, and especially Zoe Austin, for writing this article.

Over in Llancarfan, there’s good craft beer, gorgeous, modestly-priced food (pheasant and bacon pie? Mmm...) and spectacular puds to die for – what’s not to like?

Staff very friendly and welcoming. Evening meal in the restaurant was delicious as was the breakfast which was cooked fresh to order.

A first rate pub and restaurant. We stopped for a quick lunch. The waitress (Nicola) was great - friendly, welcoming and helpful. Well worth a visit.

Fox And Hounds is removed from the main roads... the village is beautiful and calm. Top marks.

Fantastic service. Lovely touches like different teas, fresh milk and cafetière coffee in the rooms. A really comfortable, friendly place - felt really at home.

We Simply Loved It! This old inn is situated in a very small, beautiful village, with a lovely view from the terrace.

The location (once found) is also perfect if you're planning on exploring Cardiff, Barry, and the surrounding areas. The new Aston Martin factory is nearby.

Stayed for business but wish I had a few days to explore instead!  Beautiful quiet country village location. Very nice staff.

Can’t wait to go again!  Called in for dinner late on a Saturday. When our food was nearly ready we were moved to a table in a cosy side room.
