You can enjoy a range of meals and lighter bites at the Fox & Hounds. Items on the Main Menu can mostly be ordered as a small portion for lighter appetites, and we have a range of sandwiches and baguettes too. Our meats are locally sourced and subject to variation, so there may be small changes to the Main Menu offerings below. We always offer daily specials and vegetarian options. If there is a dish you would particularly like, we recommend that you let us know what you want to eat when you telephone in advance to book your table - our Head Chef will do his best to oblige. Tailored menus for special occasions can also be catered for, though we ask for a minimum of seven days notice. Groups of ten or more people are strongly advised to book in advance.
Uffington is about 8 miles north of the M4 through Lambourne, of race-horse fame. The nearest Market Towns are Faringdon and Wantage, each about 15 minutes' drive. Shrivenham Defence Academy is just 3 miles away at the Watchfield roundabout on the A420. The Village has a 13th Century Church, shop and Post Office, and several literary connections. It was the early home of Thomas Hughes, whose renowned book "Tom Brown's Schooldays" begins in the old school here. It is now an interesting little museum. John Betjeman lived here in the 1930s and 40's, during which time he wrote many famous works. Tolkien, while based in Oxford, visited this area, and it is said much of his inspiration for Middle Earth came from the Ridgeway nearby.
