About the hotel
Situated in The Vale of the While Horse, off the A420 between Oxford and Swindon, Uffington is about 8 miles north of the M4 through Lambourne, of race-horse fame. The nearest Market Towns are Faringdon and Wantage, each about 15 minutes' drive. Shrivenham Defence Academy is just 3 miles away at the Watchfield roundabout on the A420.
The Village has a 13th Century Church, shop and Post Office, and several literary connections. It was the early home of Thomas Hughes, whose renowned book "Tom Brown's Schooldays" begins in the old school here. It is now an interesting little museum. John Betjeman lived here in the 1930's and 40's, during which time he wrote many famous works. Tolkein, while based in Oxford, visited this area, and it is said much of his inspiration for Middle Earth came from the Ridgeway nearby. An ideal base for walking, cycling, horse-riding, angling, visiting historic properties, golfing, or just chilling out at any time of the year. Warm welcome, caring staff, log fire, high standards, excellent food and selection of fine beverages, including Real Ales. Well-behaved dogs welcome.

Mike and Janet run a homely pub with great accommodation and a welcoming atmosphere.
I felt like nothing was too much trouble. The craic at the bar was mighty; the stories lasted all night and the beer was good - as was the Dingle gin... Highly recommended if you need to stay near Swindon or Oxford.
Lovely homely feel
We have visited the Fox and Hounds on many occasions when staying in the village with friends but had never stayed before.
The room was very clean with a wide selection of toiletries and tons of towels for our stay. The room was lovely and warm when we first arrived and we had to open the window and turn the heating off - a very mild November evening. We didn't have breakfast as we had an early start on both of our mornings so we took juice and croissants ourself. Tons of Tea and Coffee was provided. I really can't find fault with this place other than the food in the evening which was OK but not outstanding for the rest of the pub's facilities.
