A village pub recently purchased and re-opened by the local community has just launched its new restaurant La Volpe.
The new owners of the Fox and Hounds in Charwelton opened it to the public for the first time on Friday. The villagers in Charwelton made plans to re-open the pub after it was closed at the end of 2012. They finally raised enough money to open the pub in February. The menu has been carefully selected and created by Italian cook, tutor and writer Carmela Sereno Hayes.She said: “Forget about your Italian chain restaurants, the food at La Volpe will bring you a real taste of Italy as all of the dishes are handmade using only the finest Italian ingredients. This menu has something for everyone from veal saltimbocca to lasagna in forno.” La Volpe is open for lunch and dinner offering authentic Italian dishes from Tuesday through to Sunday.
