Christmas Common pub is the ideal place to spend the season

Christmas Common pub is the ideal place to spend the season

WHY not spend Christmas in Christmas Common?

Immerse yourself in the surrounding countryside and join us later at the Fox and Hounds for a hot chocolate and warm meal around the fireplace.

You can count on a warm welcome, as one recent visitor found...

“Affectionately known as the Top Fox, the Fox and Hounds in Christmas Common is over 500 years old and welcomes walkers, cyclists and dogs (in the bar).

“The pub is surrounded by beautiful countryside, so it would be perfect to have lunch and then walk off the calories, or have a walk to build up an appetite.

“The pub would be a great venue for a private function too — and if you want to celebrate someone’s birthday they will even provide a cake for you.

“The food is locally sourced as much as possible and they cater for various dietary requirements, but please give them notice if you need something specific. You can eat in the bar with your dog (if you have one) or George, the pub’s Labrador, will be more than happy to keep you company. Alternatively, you can sit in the main restaurant — there are a couple of the cosy, quiet sections if you want your own space.

“We chose from the Top Fox pub classics: the ham, egg and homemade chunky chips and the burger served with brie and chorizo (with gluten-free bread especially for me). They were both hearty, warming meals and we thoroughly enjoyed them.

“We finished our meals with a cup of tea served in a traditional tea cup, very quaint and English. Tea always tastes better in a tea cup don’t you think?

“With a spacious car park, nice clean toilets and roaring log fires we felt very welcome and look forward to visiting again soon.”
