Always a friendly welcome at The Fox Inn!With a strong commitment to quality be it Beer, Wine or Food and of course atmosphere.Four hand pumps for real ale (a fifth is planned!) always available: Woodfordes Wherry & GK IPAAt present we serve meals Thursday to Saturday evenings and Sunday Lunch (with plans later in the year to extend our serving hours) as with our other products there is no compromise on quality in the kitchen! The new pub landlords, Douglas & Emna Lindsay have spent all their careers working in quality establishments gaining many accolades to their names and hope to do the same for The Fox Inn!
