This revamped pub in the ridiculously pretty village of Blidworth Bottoms not only does food extremely well – it’s a proper boozer, too
A traditional country pub nestled on the outskirts of Gedling borough is promising visitors a warm and hearty welcome.
The Fox and Hounds can be found in the tiny (blink-and-you’ll-miss-it), gorgeous village of Blidworth Bottoms, just ten miles from Mapperley.
Located on Rigg Road, this pub – which dates back to the 19th century – already attracts a devoted following who enjoy the superb selection of traditional cask ales and great British pub-grub on offer.
And now following a recent revamp, the venue is now hoping to welcome in those from further afield with the addition of a new Orangery dining area and extra terrace space – making it a perfect destination to relax over the summer.
The Fox and Hounds has an extensive menu with a range of traditional light bites and pub classics on offer. Sunday lunches continue to prove popular and their selection of world tapas being offered during the warmer months also wins rave reviews.
But while the food available is more than enough to impress – it’s the setting that’s likely to keep you coming back for more.
The biggest draw of this rural pub is its stunning outdoor area which provides a perfect place to spend some time on a hot summer’s day.
Many visitors like to enjoy a drink and take in the surrounding scenery by grabbing a table on the recently extended outdoor terrace. The family-friendly pub’s huge beer garden is also a real asset for those with children in tow.
The Fox and Hounds is also a perfect destination for weekend walkers with Newstead Abbey, Sherwood Forest, Clumber Park and Rufford Abbey all being on the doorstep.
This is just a great British pub. Excellent food, friendly faces, traditional surroundings, good beers and great laughs – pretty much everything a village hostelry should be.
