In October 2001 John and Sue Millard, originally from Herefordshire, but more recently from Miskin, bought the Fox and Hounds from the villagers of Llancarfan and proceeded to rebuild the business. John, with nearly forty years experience of kitchen life and hotel management and Sue with twenty years hotel experience have brought the village inn to its present state. The upstairs restaurant was converted into eight en suite bedrooms in 2004 and in January 2010 the bar was changed to make way for a light and airy restaurant with seating for 50 people. August 2010 saw an ornate metal, glass roofed canopy erected over the patio allowing diners to eat outside even when it is raining.

Situated in the Vale of Glamorgan the Fox and Hounds is off the beaten track, but still enjoys the fact that Cardiff is only 25 minutes by car, Cowbridge 10 minutes and the M4 motorway 15 minutes. Cardiff Airport and the Heritage coast are between 10 and 15 minutes.
Visited for Sunday lunch with all the family. It was a very sunny day so we chose to dine outside. We had an excellent lunch , served by very pleasant staff. We all had a great meal and fantastic desserts. We then walked to the nearby 17th century church (200 yards from the restaurant), as recommended by the staff. What a surprise inside. A fantastic wall painting of St. George and the dragon.
We booked The Fox and Hounds whilst sitting in Kuala Lumpar airport waiting for a plane, not really knowing where we were going when we got to Wales. We were extremely delighted with this place. It felt secluded. It was fantastically quiet and beautiful. The food was fantastic and hearty and the people were lovely
Excellent hotel with impeccable service. The staff knew my name and provided everything I wanted for breakfast! Clean, neat, nice bar and friendly atmosphere. My privacy was respected at the same time
A friend and I had booked a table for midday (opening time) as a stop off on a circular walk we were doing. We arrived by 11.30 and sat in a covered area at the back of the pub expecting to wait 1/2 an hour before being seen to. The waitress came out almost straight away and offered us drinks - served very nicely in tea/coffee pots with jugs of milk and cream. We ordered and when the food was ready she called us inside. Overall the service was extremely friendly, dining room was clean and ...
Stayed just overnight while visiting Barry. Arrived a bit early but room was ready. Nice big room with settee and coffee table as well as the usual bed etc. Stairs would be a problem for the infirm but room spotless. Ate in the restaurant in the evening and food and wine was excellent, well presented and tasty. Staff and owners were very welcoming. Lovely quiet village.
