Fox and Hounds Inn

1989 – 2014
25 Years in Business



The weekend of the Yorkshire  Grand Departe of the 2014 Tour de France will live long in all of our memories.  Fine summer weather brought crowds flocking to West Burton and the Open Air Party on the Saturday night went down a storm.


Our kitchen served up over 100 meals on both Friday and Saturday nights, whilst on Saturday night we also served over 200 pulled pork sandwiches with apple sauce made by numerous contributors in the village, 600 burgers and hot dogs from the BBQ, and more beer in a weekend than we have ever experienced in 25 years of being in trade!

To celebrate we are going to hold the price of our 3 night breaks for the remainder of this year and also for 2015.  You will have no excuse not to come and see our beautiful village and its friendly, family run pub!







The Fox & Hounds is a family run pub welcoming well behaved children and pets.  We serve morning coffee and afternoon teas as well as lunches and evening meals from our extensive Bar Menu...and we are in the most perfect location!


West Burton is one of the most beautiful and peaceful villages in the whole of the Yorkshire Dales, with its traditional stone built cottages bordering the vast village green where children can safely play on the swings whilst the adults enjoy a relaxing drink at The Fox & Hounds Inn and take in the fantastic views.


The village has its own hidden waterfalls which are surely one of the most popular subjects for photographers coming to Wensleydale (see photo on the right) and in summer provide the most perfect swimming pool for locals and holidaymakers alike.


To the locals, The Fox & Hounds Inn is, essentially, their local pub at the centre of their community and where they come to relax after a hard day’s work.  Visitors, too, appreciate our good selection of hand pulled ales and are pleased to note that The Fox & Hounds is included in:-
