The Fox & Hounds

I visited The Fox & Hounds last year during the 2010 Silverstone British Grand Prix after getting bored waiting to get served in Silverstone on Friday night. We found it quite by accident.

It is an Excellent pub restaurant with marvellous food and plenty of activity. And I got my pint within my obligatory two minutes. I’ve not had that experience for almost ten years in Silverstone Village, when I remember being able to actually sit down at a table to consume my drink and eat some passionately prepared food.

Highly recommended and only ten to fifteen minutes walk from Gate 5 (North Gate, between the old Pits Straight B Stand and the Copse A Stand), of Silverstone Circuit. That is exactly the same amount of time to Silverstone Village.
