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.
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.
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 ...
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
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.
