We were invited by Kelly to pop in and take a look at the work-in-progress “Re-Sparkle” of the Fox & Hounds Waterlooville. This is the third pub in Waterlooville this year to get a revamp.
The photographs below are the revamp in progress:
When the pub sign’s was removed (see below) the pub’s original sign was discovered underneath.
The outside has a new covered area, plus there are other improvements planned for the garden.
Kelly explained the intention is to keep the character of the pub as it is; the re-model’s goal is to freshen up areas that were looking a little tired:
- Inside and out is getting a lick of paint
- Enhance baby change facilities
- New and improved menu
- New internet jukebox
- A bigger TV installed
- Improve the kid’s area inside of the pub
The plans are to have everything completed by the end of this month.
The Fox & Hounds is a “Guinness Quality Approved Pub” and has a Food Hygiene rating of 5 Stars. The landlord will be renewing their “The Cask Marque Award” in due course.
As a family, we are always made to feel welcome and are well looked after; the Fox & Hounds is certainly one of our favourite pubs to visit.
