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

This was our second stay at the Fox Inn and we were not disappointed. Excellent, friendly staff, good food, good beer. Breakfast, croissants etc, is provided in the fridge in your room so no need to get up early. We ordered an early cooked breakfast for the morning we departed and it was very good, freshly cooked. Only slight problem... More

Stayed here after white water rafting at Lee Valley. After a nighmare journey due to M11 closure we arrived at 10.20pm gasping for a drink and something to eat. Whilst the kitchen was closed, we were made to feel very welcome and were made a tray of lovely mixed sandwiches. Unfortunatley, didn't get to sample the whitebait and steak I... More
