Fox and Hounds, Tinshill Road
Description:
October 2003 The original Fox and Hounds was within the boundaries of Horsforth and occupied the bottom floor of a three storey building, the topfloor of which housed a weaving shed. It was bought by the Railways Board, prior to Horsforth Station opening in 1849, for use as a ticket office. The license was transferred to this building. The windows interestingly, are replicas in design and costruction of those found at Kirkstall Abbey House Museum.

Prior to being the tenants here the Clarksons were tenants at the Swinnow Hotel Bramley, and funnily enough Graham Eccles also moved from here to a Pudsey pub the White Horse, the last time I heard of him he was at the supporters bar at the Leeds Rhinos Carnegie Stadium. (Jan 5th 2009)

The beginning (or end, whichever way you start) of the 'Horsforth mile' pub crawl. Very nice pub through the years, and still retains that "old pub" atmosphere. Good food and a good pint.

I saw the name Marshall Worsnop on one of the comments. He played rugby with me at West Park Bramhope as they were known then. I was in this pub on Saturday 12th June 2010, with a mutual friend, John Patrick, who also played at Bramhope. As we were reminiscing Marshalls name was mentioned.

Superb pub well-run & decorous by Norman and his wife (plus the inestimable and unperterbable Ernest ... the waiter) The favoured watering-hole for my and other local families (Wards, Reltons, Wilsons...etc.. Friday and Saturday evenings... plus Sunday lunchtime for the men only! Discord and bad behaviour not tolerated by anyone. Further visits not allowed until the following thursday! Where have these days of self, mutual and interactive social respect gone?

In the early nineties as a young man i spent many a happy sunday night in here at the 'Disco'. the DJ looked somewhat like the comedian Steve Martin, and he knew what tracks to play to get people rocking. Brilliant times. The funny thing is you never appreciate them at the time , only later when you look back do you realise how good they were.
