Meet your new Landlord and Landlady
In 2017 Shelley's parents (Ian and Karen) had a crazy idea of buying a pub. About a year into the venture Dan joined the team as Head Chef. Dan, having trained at some of the best restaurants in Yorkshire, brought new ideas and 'proper' Yorkshire cooking with him.
The same year our lovely Naomi started who has been an integral part of the team since then. Naomi always has a smile and is a familiar face at The Fox.
During the eventful five years that Karen and Ian had The Fox (having never run a public house before and Ian coming from a forestry background) a lot of hard graft was put into making it the business it is today. Including a full kitchen refit in 2018, a complete refit of all the guest accommodation and a facelift for the outside in 2020 and a brand new roof that was required to stop the leaks in the newly refurbished rooms (not to mention COVID).
Post COVID, business was booming and Shelley stepped in as an extra pair of hands. having had years of experience in the trade Shelley brought a wealth of experience with her. It wasn't too long before Dan and Shelley realised that maybe they had more in common than just working together! Ian and Karen realised that maybe the next step was to hand over the reigns and retire!
Dan and Shelley married in January 2023 (at where else but The Fox!). In February of 2023 Ian and Karen handed over the reigns and retired. Shelley and Dan commenced there journey as the new Landlord and Landlady of The Fox and Hounds, The next chapter has begun.
Thank you for reading our potted story, we look forward to your visit.
