Here is a brief company overview:
Our company was established in October of 2001 and has been serving outstanding beers and home cooked food ever since. Of course the Fox and Hounds is a lot older than that and has been trading on this site since the early part of the nineteenth century.
We hope you appreciate an extract from our menu which expands a little on the History of the Fox and Hounds.
History of the Inn
The building is thought to date back to the early part of the nineteenth century when it was first used as a farmhouse. In those days Blidworth Bottoms was a much larger community with shops and a post office. The exact date when this building became a public house remains a mystery to us, although it is said the Fox and Hounds Beer House was originally built on a site opposite Beck Lane and doubled as a Nail-makers shop. Maybe our friendly ghost whose presence is still felt will enlighten us of more information in due course. Have a look at the old photographs and paintings around the pub some of which show the pub back in 1910. The Pub once stood by the side of a stream which flowed from Fishpool through the Bottoms and into Salterford Dam, thereafter forming the Dover Beck. On a more recent note we have embarked on the refurbishment of the pub and we hope you enjoy your time at the ‘new’ Fox and Hounds.
Your hosts are Diane and David Cole, who will be pleased to welcome you to this famous Pub situated at Blidworth Bottoms, Nottinghamshire England.
