Refurbished pub in quiet village. Evening meal was excellent. Accommodation spotless with new bathrooms just a short walk to the rear of the pub.
Friendly land lady. A dinner B&B package would be useful. Good selection of ale

Thank you - we will look at your idea of a dinner b+b package. Makes sense.

Came here for dinner in August after pub recently refurbished. There were 6 of us who sat down for an evening meal. Menu not great - I struggled to find something I liked. Everything is served with chips! I asked for a starter for a main course which still came up minute. Not really sure I would return due to lack of menu choice and price. Considering so close to Mersea expected better offer of fish. Not sure I would return. On the upside staff were friendly but needs to up its offerings on prices and food offerings. Would rather visit other restaurants in area As I live locally and speaking to locals it seems views are the same. Need a revamp on menu and prices.

You are right! When you came in August 2015 we had just re-opened after a major refurb with new staff and there were some issues - so we changed key kitchen staff, the menus and the service . If you let me or the manager know who you are I would like to offer you and a friend a retry at half price or nil - if it is still the same. The new menus are great and on pricing I am now very happy about value and choices.

The Sleepy Fox B&B is really a block of 4 rooms built behind the pub The Layer Fox. The rooms have been recently added and are of a good size with a wet room for showering. There was a big comfortable bed and the room was quite large. The room needed a wardrobe or hanging rail and the shower could have done with a bit more power. However, the rate was good and the staff brilliant.
Parking on site and a character pub at hand - great.

Room Tip: Any, all the same. Wifi available in the pub

Stayed here for the weekend with our Jack Russell who was warmly welcomed.
Nice room, very comfortable bed and one of the best breakfasts we have ever had.
We look forward to staying again when visiting family in the area. Zoe is a real sweetie.

I am glad you enjoyed your stay but since then the Fox has changed hands and if you liked it then, I hope and think you will enjoy it more after a huge revamp, refurb and a room upgrade
