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.
Firstly we will admit to finding the Fox and Hounds Inn by chance and not by recommendation, looking at some of the reviews we are not sure we are talking about the same Inn!

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.
A small group of us celebrated New Year's Eve at this wonderful establishment. Everything was perfect; very warm welcome from our hosts and their staff,comfortable well appointed and tastefully decorated bedrooms, fantastic showers, wood burning stoves provided cosy atmosphere, perfect full English breakfast and superb celebration dinner. Everything was perfect. We are definitely coming back. Thank you Mo and John for making our stay so memorable.
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.
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
