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.

Apologies for the lack of information on our website, but we are re-writing menus
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.
We had a wonderful welcoming stay at the Fox and Hounds, staff very accomodating and we had some great meals there. Rooms had lovely views and and very clean with good bathrooms
After staying in January for the first time every time I visit I stay here. Good is excellent, rooms are fantastic and John and Sue really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Anyone visiting wales / Cardiff for business or short break should book here and not use the big chains. Rural setting but close to everywhere . Looking forward to my next visit.
Very nice place to stay welcoming staff, great room and very clean, had a lovely meal in the evening. Breakfast was also very good. Ample parking set in a nice quite village, so I had a good nights sleep, would certainly recommend this as a place to stay if your in the area.
7 of us stayed here over the May bank holiday for the European rugby cup finals in Cardiff. Everything was great, good food, comfy and quiet rooms, warm welcome, decent real ale and even with a £40 minibus taxi into Cardiff it was still cheaper to stay at The Fox and Hounds than one of the chains in the city and frankly after staying here I would be inclined to return rather than pay through the nose in the city centre. Thanks to Sue, John and Nicola for looking after us! Hats off ...
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.
