The Fox and Hounds Inn at Great Wolford in Warwickshire is still widely advertised on the Web. If you’ve come to this page hoping to visiting this “Quintessential English Inn” then I’m afraid you’re too late.
The lovely, historical old interior was torn out by the new owners in 2015. As you may have read in pre-2015 reviews, this once-lovely and successful pub in the North Cotswolds was built around 1540 and has had a great reputation for B&B accommodation and great food for many years. The current owners closed the Pub in the Summer of 2016 having failed to continue the business’s former success saying that it wasn’t financially viable and that they were going to live in it as a house and apply for change of use .
Local people are campaigning to get the pub open again and to prevent its change of use and loss as the community centre of this small village. If you’d like to learn more about this, please visit savegreatwolfordpub.co.uk
If you’re thinking of booking a B&B room at the Fox and Hounds Inn don’t be under any illusion that you’ll be staying at a lively, characterful village pub – you won’t. As the ex-landlady shouted to visitors arriving at a recent meeting about rescuing the pub:
“You’re wasting your time. You’ll never get your pub back”
2014 – 2016
