Welcome to The Fox and Hounds

The Fox and Hounds is set in the small hamlet of Coxbench just four miles from Derby city centre. We are a traditional English pub serving hand pulled cask ales, keg beers and cider.  We are also much more, with our award winning food prepared on site from fresh produce. We would like you to join us, relax and take time out, whether it's a couple of pints of our great cask ale, a glass or two of wine or a fantastic meal. We won't rush you as your time with us is important.  You are not just a customer but someone we wish to share our time with and get to know.

Whether walking the picturesque Amber Valley, cycling, mountain biking or heading here again, you will always find a friendly welcome. Drink, eat and share your time, there is no need to rush, your table is never double booked and your glass will always be re-charged.

We have a bar dedicated to drinking only in the evening, where you can relax with your 'poison', read a newspaper or magazine and snack on a  bag of crisps or pork scratchings without being surrounded by food, and pressurised into giving your table up by a steaming-hot steak and ale pie. Dining is divided into two levels, a lower bar area, and a mezzanine level if you want to be a little way from the bar. We don't have a pub full or TV's but we do play an eclectic mix of music from classical, soul, jazz, swing and blues to modern easy pop. You can get a pack of cards or dominoes if you want to play some traditional pub games. We have a garden patio,  and seating to the front of the pub where you can watch the world go by with a drink, or some of our exceptionally good food.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
