Fox & Hounds over Xmas and New Year

Carols round the treePlease join us at the Fox and Hounds for carols around the tree on Friday at 7.30 followed by the Christmas draw.

Christmas Day, we are open lunchtime only (but not serving food.?!?).

Most other times are normal except New Years Eve, when we’ll be opening at five in the evening instead of six and going through until 2014 (the year that is!)

The weekly quiz will be running as of New Years Day ( due to popular demand!)

Best wishes to all our customers for the festive period and for 2014.

Pub Quiz results and Christmas Greetings

This week saw the first loss of the season for the domino team but a win again for the quiz team.

The weekly quiz was won by Anty’s Mob with The Old Comtempitble’s dragging themselves off the bottom slot for the first time and coming a very respectable second. (Alzheimer’s and Coogies third and fourth respectively)

Looking forward to the carol’s around the tree tomorrow (Dec 21st) followed by the Christmas draw later in the evening.

We’d like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy, health new year. Thank you all for the support you’ve given us over the last three months.

Christmas Quiz, Carols and Draw

Been an odd week here at the Fox & Hounds (even by our standards!).

The monthly quiz was very well supported yet again and was won by first-timers, The Mikado’s.

The domino team had their match re-arranged to next week but the quiz team were again victorious!

There was no weekly quiz this week as we had a large Christmas party booked but it will return on 19th December with a hint of Christmas about it.

Friday 21st we will be doing our Christmas draw. Tickets are still available for 50p and ALL money goes to the prizes. The Draw will be at approx 9.30pm after Carols around the tree starting at 7.30pm. Everyone is most welcome, children included for the carols.

Both domino and quiz teams are at home this coming week and the weekly quiz is on Wednesday as usual.

From December 1st we will be running the Christmas draw. Buy a square for 50p. Draw night on Dec 21st after Carols Round the Tree.
