The fox is a lovely bright sunny pub, with friendly helpful staff and lovely atmosphere. The meals were served with a smile and tasted delicious, you can't ask for more!

Went with our family to celebrate their wedding anniversary and also mothers day. The venue is first class and the staff most attentive and friendly. Made a special fuss to the 4 year old child with us and made us all feel very welcome. The food was very good and we all seemed to enjoy what had been provided. Good... More

Wow. What a lovely pub. Ambiance perfect. Clean. Inviting and friendly. Very reasonable prices. Food lovely. My only grumble would be the limited vegetarian options and the fact the puddings are not marked vegetarian or not. Luckily, i am a long term veggie so pretty much know which will have gelatine in them! Having said that, we will be returning... More

A warm and friendly welcome, our table was ready and waiting, drinks bought across to our table very promptly, menus delivered by an attentive waitress. The pub was busy and lively, our starters came out quite quickly, fresh and tasty. The main course followed after a short interval, our drinks were replenished without us having to move from the table,... More

Enjoyed a lovely mothers day meal with my family. It's our 3rd visit to this place. A homely pretty restaurant in a rural location but always worth the drive. As usual the food did not disappoint. Tasty deep fried brie starter. Generous portion turkey roast main. Mouth watering strawberry cheesecake dessert. Great service throughout with very attentive & friendly staff.... More

We went here for the first time for Sunday lunch having seen all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The pub is in a beautiful village and surrounded by fields. It has a lovely warm atmosphere and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. We had 3 courses from their set menu and it was very reasonably priced. The menu... More

We visited the Fox on a Friday night for dinner, we chose it because of all the great reviews but we left pretty disappointed. Whilst the staff were welcoming and friendly, and the setting was just what you want from a country pub, the food was definitely not up to the standard we expected for the price. We ordered Camembert... More

We were all really sad to read that you thought we had disappointed you. Reading your review though, I feel You have been rather harsh in your rating. I should mention that the Camembert is the family sized one, much bigger than many restaurants offer and usually to much for just one couple. The delicious bread we give you at... More

Description
Re-opened in March 2013 after lots of dust, banging and a complete refurbishment. The building and decor are charming and rustic, with elegant modern touches. We have a cosy log burner perfect for winter evenings and during the Summer months we have out door seating over looking the fields or in a pretty courtyard filled with flowers. We have a blackboard offering daily specials as well as our seasonal menu with prices ranging from £10.95 - £19
