    We adore this pub so much. As does Timber our dog. Jane is always welcoming, always smiling, and always remembers I need the gluten-free fryer for my chips. Which are the best in Berkshire!

    Timber has a choice of biscuits, snacks and ice cream.

    Staff so friendly they made an effort to come over and chat with us and meet our dog. Have not experienced such a relaxing visit to the pub with our pooch anywhere else on our travelsvin the UK. The dog ice cream was the icing on the cake, he loved it and so did we. Thank you and keep up the good work. 👍

    Where do I start? The Fox and Hounds, Theale has got it all. Jayne and Miles and their Team give you and your dog/s the warmest of welcomes. Treats are close at hand on the bar alongside the doggy menu with choice of drinks (Bum Sniffer beer is Poppy’s usual). You’ll find plenty of water bowls and a bed or two if you get in early. If you’re really lucky, the little teepee might be free. I love it! Menu for humans is varied and the food is very tasty; Sunday roasts and pies and the desserts are favourites for us. Service is great and not rushed but if you’re in a hurry or on lunch break, you can ring ahead to book and order. If you want to work up an appetite or stretch your legs after your meal, Hosehill Lake is opposite for a lovely walk round. The Fox and Hounds, Theale is THE Best Dog-Friendly Pub without a doubt.

    More than just dog friendly: doggy dinners, Pawsecco, doggy ice cream, paddling pool for fur babies to cool off when it’s warm, dog beds & bowls. Humans are looked after too with super food and lovely fires and a warm welcome by friendly staff who are a great working team. There are lots of events at the pub and good local walks. Highly recommended.

    Dogs welcome with well-behaved owners 🙂 The Fox and Hounds is the essence of a dog-friendly pub. The dogs are welcomed on an equal basis with their human companions. We have been offered towels {for the dogs} on rainy days and the plentiful supply of water bowls means no sharing required. Our pampered pooch absolutely loves the free gravy bones and dribbles in anticipation of getting some. She also highly recommends the chips. This is a favourite lunch spot foloowing a walk along the nearby Kennet and Avon canal. If only all “dog-friendly” pubs were this genuinely dog friendly. Highly recommended with or without a 4-legged friend – great selection of beers, wines and gin accompanied by delicious freshly cokked food. Keep up the good work.

So wonderful to find a dog friendly pub and The Fox and Hounds at Theale goes above and beyond, a doggy ball pit, for those energetic four legged friends, and a cushion provided, for those tired pooches. Our dog Emily really loved the doggy beer and ice-cream ( not on the same day ) Thank you To all at The Fox and Hounds you are a pub in a million. X

    There’s nothing me and my dog enjoy more than a stroll around the idyllic Hosehill Lake nature reserve, then just crossing over the road to probably the most canine friendly pub we’ve ever visited.

    The hospitality at the Fox & Hounds is fantastic. My little dog always has such a fuss made of her, but it’s not JUST a dog pub. There’s good quality, reasonable priced food (I recommend the fish and chips), with a strong selection of real ales.

    After enjoying the wild flower meadow to the East side of the lake, and watching the diverse range of bird life (in particular, I adore the cormorants), a visit to The Fox & Hounds is the perfect ending to a perfect walk.
