The Fox and Hounds is currently closed. A recent enquiry by a Coaley resident to the owners, the EI group, got this response:
"Unfortunately we were unaware that the pub had closed and therefore ceased trading. We were aware however, that the Fox & Hounds Inn has experienced a difficult trading history.
At this point we are not able to confirm any plans or dates for the pub to reopen whilst we conduct a thorough review of the site."
The council has been looking at how the pub may be secured as a community asset, and should be on the agenda for our next council meeting.
