Our Story

The Fox and Hounds Country Inn is a unique English licenced restaurant nestled at the base of Tamborine Mountain, just 11 kilometres from the M1 exit at Oxenford in the Gold Coast hinterland.


Established in 2007, the Fox and Hounds Country Inn is the perfect scale of an old English Pub and has a fine range of English and Irish memorabilia adorning the walls. Most of the internal fittings of the Fox and Hounds came from the Sussex Arms Hotel in Tunbridge Wells making it that much more unique. The Sussex Arms was originally built in the 1700's making a lot of the original features of this hotel older than the first settlers to this country. It is also the only hotel in Australia that has been transported out from England giving you the feeling you have been transported back to the UK.


The Fox and Hounds is immensely popular within the British community, locals and tourists, offering a fine range of traditional food, beers and wines. We have a selection of 7 beers and 3 ciders on tap including a few English & Irish favourites - Guinness, Kilkenny, Hobgoblin, Old Speckled Hen and a monthly designated Guest beer. Our Thatchers or Stowford Press Apple Cider make for perfect refreshments accommodating for something drier. We also have our own Foxy Lady Ginger Cider which is brewed locally and exclusively for us.


We have a lovely Tudor dining area which has become very popular. This was constructed to suit all weather and has seating to cater for 60 people. There is also a Scottish dining room that leads from the Tudor room to the beer garden. This room can be used privately depending on numbers and events, max 26. This room is also where our Murder Mystery dinners are held. The grassed beer garden offers a generous area for the kids to run and play. We are open every weekend so come along and enjoy a good meal and a pint with friends & family . While you're here why not have your photo taken with the Queen and now a King. The Fox and Hounds is always accommodating and nothing is ever too much. This is the place to be!


All visitors are welcome …. together we are making the Fox and Hounds another wonderful place to come when visiting Mt Tamborine and the Gold Coast.
