I would have scored this pub slightly higher if it wasn't for their high prices. A pint of Ilkley Mary Jane at 3.5% cost £3.75. The barman told us that this was a M+B pub and he agreed prices were steep. The pub was busy on our Saturday afternoon visit, all of which were families having a bite to eat. The atmosphere from the customers in here was stiff and 'look at me'. The interior of the pub is modern with painted walls and feature walls made up from cross sections of sawn up tree trunks. The bar counter was solid oak, with a rolled brass decorative front, plus a brass hand rail. The front of the bar area was clad with reclaimed pine. There was also a central column with an open log fire. There was also a lounge upstairs, most probably with another dining area.

The Fox, or Fox and Hounds as it was originally known, is the oldest public house in Menston dating back to 1822. The Fox was not always on this site and appears to have moved to this new position on the main road in 1849 to take advantage of the passing trade. It was previously located at the centre of the village at Lane Ends.Guests will be able to browse a new menu which includes a wide variety of freshly prepared classic pub dishes such as Slow Cooked Shoulder of Lamb, daily fresh fish dishes and Homemade Pie of the Day. There is also a separate lunch menu offering freshly made sandwiches and salads, perfect if you’re just nipping in for a quick biteFOOD SERVED: Daily 12pm-10pm, 12pm-9.30pm on Sundays
