The Fox and Hounds is a bit of a late addition to the list - mostly thanks to the fame of the place as being a venue that John Lennon and Paul McCartney used to play in their pre-Beetles days. Finding out about the pub in it's current non-famous state is hard to say the least. It's also hard to imagine the place as a live music venue as now it really is a proper locals pub and not much else. However, it's a very pleasant locals pub with a friendly enough feel and some nice touches to show the owners look after the place. On our visit the locals were all sat around the bar watching the footy (cable TV). There's a few tables round one side and a pool table in a games area to the right of the front door. G.|
Quite a sizeable games area by the looks of things as well. They may have had a dart board round there but we didn't go scoobying! Very much a locals and everyone else may be put off by the bars on the windows and from the outside it doesn't look the most inviting. It was nice enough in there though, as most of these locals are. Books on shelves and nice little pictures on the walls added to the flavour of the place. S.
Well the Fullers London Pride was good to see - but it wasn't the best pint of the stuff I've had. It was certainly London Pride but was lacking in the usual excellent taste. A reasonable pint though. G.|
