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.
A beutiful, very thoughtfully designed B and B with lovely staff and wonderful food. Thank you for making our weekend so special
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

We were met by the Landlord who was polite from the ...
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 ...
We were very impressed with Sue and John who made our stay very enjoyable. They were welcoming, informative, and always at hand with any answers to our queries. The rooms were excellent and the food absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. A very enjoyable stay and we would recommend the Fox and Hounds to everyone without doubt. Thank you for a memorable stay.
