Situated in one of London's loveliest suburbs, this pub and hotel in Wimbledon Village fulfils both its twin roles admirably. Downstairs is a cosy yet spacious public bar and dining room - its wooden parquet floor cleverly subdivided to create a sense of privacy - with several areas for events. Start your stay with an aperitif chosen from their dazzlingly-comprehensive gin menu, before moving on to a meal carefully prepared using seasonal ingredients. Upstairs are 28 characterful and comfortable rooms, each original in design and some with interiors that reference the area's illustrious tennis history. A great base for families and couples keen to avoid the hassle of central London, the Dog & Fox is a 45-minute journey by public transport into Oxford Circus.

Though the hotel sits on a buzzy high street, walk ten minutes and you're on wooded Wimbledon Common - the pastoral idyll enjoyed by the Wombles in their iconic '70s TV show.

Good transport links will get you into central London. Richmond Park (20 minutes) and Hampton Court Palace (40 minutes) are both within driving distance.
By car: around 45 minutes from London, 2 hours from Bristol and 4 hours from Manchester. Paid parking nearby.
By train: Wimbledon tube station is a 10-minute walk, and Raynes Park station is a 7-minute drive to the hotel.

Style & Character

Stylish but not intimidatingly so, this is a cut above the average pub-with-rooms, and a welcoming base for couples and families of all ages. The dapper receptionist, immaculately dressed in a waistcoat and wool blazer, set the tone for the overall experience.

Service & Facilities

There's the option to have breakfast in bed. On a sunny morning, order room service to eat on the terrace of your suite.

The hotel welcomes pets, charged at an additional £15 per night. Beds and blankets are provided, plus a bowl and treats.


The Village Suite has splashes of decadent green, a big clawfoot bath in the room and a private terrace with outdoor furniture and throws. We loved the next-level mini-bar, featuring a smorgasbord of top-tier treats including Tyrell's crisps, Mr Filbert's nuts and Tony's Chocolonely.

Food & Drink

The breakfast is excellent, with a fulsome continental buffet on offer as well as à la carte options including eggs benedict. A pub can be judged by the quality of its fish and chips, and here they are reliably excellent - the beer-battered haddock as crispy as the accompanying triple-fried potatoes.

Dog & Fox: elegant pub and restaurant, British cuisine, seasonal menus. All-day dining, open daily. Mains from £16.
