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.
Lovely quiet setting and clean facilities. The food was exceptional with delicious breakfast included. Location ideal for all local sights and places of interest. The beach, Cardiff, interesting villages and museums and castles all easily accessible. We liked it all. 10/10

Good food, lovely surroundings. We would definitely stay there again.
Quiet location and really friendly, happy people. Sue & John are wonderful hosts and meals were fantastic. Lovely big hearty breakfasts and a lovely a la carte menu for evening dining. Our room (Poppy) was large and comfortable with a king-size bed and a sofa. Plenty of storage space too. Ensuite bath/wc with shower over bath was compact but fine. Would highly recommend. Convenient for various locations yet tucked away. Plenty of on-site parking
and were able to take breakfast slightly earlier. The evening meal was superb. Would recommend staying at the Fox and Hounds, a typical country pub with great food. It was difficult to find a good hotel as the Welsh were playing the Aussies, but was glad to find this little gem!
The welcome and ongoing rapport with the owner was excellent. The bed was kingsize and very comfortable and the ensuite fittings were of very good quality. The breakfast was 1st class.
Extremely hospitable owners Spacious and beautiful bedroom Totally peaceful Excellent food
Food was excellent, beer was very good, and staff were superb.
A beautifully restored inn in a gorgeous part of wales. Rooms were warm and cozy with everything you need including satellite tv and a power shower. The food was wonderful - a good selection, beautifully presented and good value. I would stay here again for business or leisure.
