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.

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
very friendly and relaxing traditional country village inn. food excellent and good choice of specials, I phoned ahead and thankfully they kept the kitchen open for our late arrival, definitely will stay here again when next in this area
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.
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! The Inn is situated out in the remote village of Llancarfan, the web site said it was off the beaten track, fortunately we live in a remote part of Derbyshire so we are used to such roads but we will say to those who are not used to such narrow roads care is needed. We were met by the Landlord who was polite from the ...
