The Fox and Hounds is the oldest Public House in the Newmillerdam and Sandal area. It has recently been completely renovated to a high standard by the current owners, who take great pride in acting as hosts to all of their customers, presenting them with the very best food and drink that also represents great value for money.

Cask ales are a regular serving there as well as guest ales such as Spitfire, Hobgoblin, Black Sheep and many more. There’s a fantastic range of wines from around the world that are also available by the glass, as well as a large range of both Scottish and Irish single malt whiskies that includes Aberlour A’bunadh, a cask strengh (60%!) whisky and a beautiful 21 year old Balvenie (in Portwood) whisky. There’s many more to choose from or you may prefer to finish your night off with a quality XO cognac..

The real gem of the Fox & Hounds is the restaurant, fast becoming known as the best place to enjoy genuinely freshly made quality food; whether it’s a baguette with Jackie’s infamous chunky chips (not frozen!) at lunch or a Fillet Rissini prepared by the rosette winning chef.

Although refurished, the ‘traditional’ pub feel remains at The Fox & Hounds with regular live entertainment featuring.

Situated in one of the nicest areas of Wakefield, surrounded by woods and the lake providing opportunity for all the family to enjoy a day out. Even dogs (well behaved of course!) are welcome in the bar area where food is served, although they are not allowed in the restaurant.
