The Fox and Hounds will not be opening fully until Wednesday 19th May, as we have no undercover facilities. We are hoping to open the coffee shop each weekend as from 17th April, where a limited menu will be on offer, with coffee/tea and/or alcoholic beverages, served in the garden. Weekend opening will continue weather permitting. We hope to see you soon!

About Us

The Fox And Hounds Hotel is a handsome former 17th-century coaching inn that dominates the Green in the picturesque Rutland village of Exton. The building oozes character and a wonderful home-from-home atmosphere, with the open fire in the bar for cosy winter evenings and a pretty garden for lazy summer days. Privately owned, you can be assured of a warm welcome with every amenity to make your stay a pleasurable one.

The building has benefited from a major refurbishment and now offers four Gold Star-awarded boutique hotel luxury rooms. All of the en-suite rooms are individually decorated and come with broadband internet, a digital Freeview™ television, Egyptian cotton linen, and bathrobes in the bathrooms. There is also free parking.

Dining at The Fox And Hounds restaurant is a treat. We have been awarded a 2 AA Rosette level as well as a place in the Good Food Guide (the Waitrose UK's Best Restaurants Guide). We offer some exceptional seasonal menus. From our weekly lunch menu offering a quirky take on the British classics, share platters, and sandwiches to more formal dining and modern European-inspired dishes, we have it all. We also offer various weekly specials and on Sundays a traditional menu is served from noon.

Our pet-friendly premises are open from 9am on Sundays to offer coffee, cake, snacks, soup, and more!
