Welcome back to the Fox and Hounds!

For all the details on how to book a slot for a drink or a meal at the Fox and Hounds, please read the above notice.

In addition, the Palmers Website offers the TRACK AND TRACE facility which people will need to log into whenever they visit the pub.
The link is here and it is actually a really good facility.  QRCodes will be provided in the pub for people to use with smart phones but Liz plans to have her MAC on the bar to log people in who don’t have this facility.


Did we hear a rumour about a new outside bar?

Yes!!! What we want more that anything is to ensure your pub environment is a safe one for everyone to enjoy. This is our number one concern. We are currently investing time and energy into developing a new outside bar which we hope people will feel comfortable using, we anticipate this will be run alongside the main inside bar and that by having the two facilities we can ensure customers are well spaced out.

Hope to see you soon,

Scott and Liz



Originally a medieval longhouse, the Fox and Hounds is a rustic 17th Century Inn, situated in the heart of Cattistock. The ancient beams, large inglenook fireplace and little window seats add to the charm and character.

We aim to serve our local community in the best way possible. Our staff, coupled with the traditional atmosphere give a warm welcome to visitors and tourists alike all year round.

We serve delicious home cooked meals, real local ales, a selection of ciders, and a choice of wines.

We welcome all groups, including coach parties, walkers, cyclists, skittles teas, bell ringers, folk music to name but a few.

We have 3 lovely letting rooms making us an ideal choice for a last minute weekend break, or a great base for a more extended stay allowing you to explore Dorset.

We are an excellent choice for families due to being situated directly opposite an amazing play park, allowing parents to relax on the front terrace whilst children play.

We are a dog friendly pub. There is free wifi, and a car park to the rear.

We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely village and our special pub.

Food is served: 12 noon – 2pm Tuesday – Sunday

7pm – 9pm Monday – Sunday

Bar open until 11pm.
