Fox and Hounds

High Street
Market Drayton

Pub Description:

The Fox and Hounds just an 8 minute drive into the country from the Brewery has a natural charm, positioned at the top of the village opposite a picture-postcard church. It has been a Joule’s house since the 19th century, and even still has the original Joule’s etched door in the front lobby.

The Joule’s mirrors twinkle throughout the pub and the oak framed conservatory, is a great place to enjoy traditional pub food. To honour the pub, you should easily find the carved hounds heads guarding the building, but the fox does require some further searching. The hounds have all been given Anglo Saxon names, can you figure out the connection between all the names?

In our lovely Cheswardine Tap you will find an open fire, traditional pub games and it’s a great destination for ramblers to enjoy the Shropshire countryside.

Always on Tap, Joule’s Pale Ale, Slumbering Monk, Pure Blonde and our english craft lager Green Monkey, alongside our rotating seasonal ale and cold craft beer. All brewed in Market Drayton with pure Shropshire mineral water.

Easy parking in the car park around the back of the pub.
