Situated near Universal Studios in the heart of Studio City, the Fox & Hounds is a traditional British pub that belies its San Fernando Valley location. With a poster urging patrons to "Keep Calm and Carry On" and a large sign outside the bar commemorating the 2011 royal wedding ("Congratulations to William & Kate"), the place is veddy English. However, it's not too stiff-upper-lip, with framed portraits of the Clash's Joe Strummer providing a working-man's-hero contrast to the pub's royal fixation. The Fox & Hounds is a great place for expats and locals alike to catch all manner of European and American soccer games on the bar's various television screens. They take their darts playing seriously here, and other entertainment includes weekly trivia-game contests and live bands on weekends. Naturally, the Fox & Hounds specializes in typical British pub fare, including shepherd's pie, bangers & mash, cornish pastie, and fish & chips, along with breakfast (served all day), ploughman's salads, burgers, and an array of Britcentric desserts like treacle pudding and the notorious spotted dick. The full bar proffers a wide assortment of mostly imported beers and ales. The layout is quite comfortable, with a red-brick fireplace, a wood-paneled bar, a separate dining area and a leafy outdoors patio. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served daily. Food is available for takeout, and there's street parking and a lot in the back.
