Drove my Triumph Spitfire to The Fox Inn for the classic car meet at 11.50am. Club meets1st Sunday of every month. Warm welcome from staff and the smells from the kitchen were delicious. Unfortunately, the car club meet at 3pm on Sunday, so I whizzed off to make a family visit. Matching Tye is a pretty place with a charming... More

Have eaten here before and the food and service have both been very good. On that basis we booked the small function room for a family occasion (my partner's mother's 80th birthday party) We were not disappointed. Once again the food and service were very good and everyone (about 38 of us) had a fabulous evening. We even managed to... More

Pleasant atmosphere, good food and service. A warm and welcoming traditional pub. Service was good and accommodating multiple bills for the table of 8. Food all presented well, hot and tasty. Only issue was the slightly cramped seating in parts of the restaurant. Overall very enjoyable and the members would like to visit again soon.

We had a meal here on Christmas Eve. Excellent food and service. The rump steak was excellent as we're the vegetarian options. The menu also had all the pub grub classics. We were seated in the bar area as had our two dogs as company. The staff were very friendly as were all the locals. The owners were particularly helpful... More

An old barn renovated into a cozy charming village pub / restaurant, food is tasty, warm welcoming atmosphere, accommodation is clean and comfortable, a full traditional breakfast and very friendly staff. A large garden for the summer and a crackling fire in the colder months, A busy popular place to go, I will be returning soon.

We visited just before Christmas for a two night stay. The accommodation was affordable, clean and modern. The family run pub is staffed by the friendly team who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I can't recommend The Fox Inn enough.

During the many years that we have eaten at The Fox Inn the standard of food & service has always been excellent. The staff have always been welcoming providing excellent service and the pub as always has a very friendly relaxed atmosphere to it. It was a Friday lunchtime that we ate here and the restaurant was quite busy, but... More

Friendly welcome from inn-keepers who know their business inside out, rooms easily accessed from courtyard (no stairs/lifts necessary). Spacious and simply (in a good way!) decorated and equipped room and bathroom, both comfortably heated on a cool autumn night. Good standard of house-keeping and linen, plenty of hot water. Free WiFi worked fine in room. Cereal/croissant breakfast in room was... More

This is a little gem of a pub restaurant at Matching Tye is off the busier routes and just towards Harlow from Matching Green itself. The drive along pretty lanes is worth the effort. On arrival you find an attractive, large, country pub surrounded by very pretty grounds. Parking is good. Stepping inside bar service is prompt and being a... More
