Booked into the fox without knowing too much apart from hearing good things about the food. Amazed as thought we would be staying in a room above the pub but they had chalet type rooms out the back. Very good standard of rooms and it served the purpose for somewhere close to our friends so we could just walk back... More

Food was great, service was great and not rushed at all. Also took advantage of staying over night. Room was lovely and clean, best nights sleep in a very... More

Well what can we say? We visited this Public House about 3 years ago on a dark, cold, snowy evening. We were travelling down south like we do quite regularly and had to find somewhere to stay and looking at various websites we came across The Fox Inn which had availability for that particular night. So we made our way... More

A guaranteed excellent Sunday lunch venue. This trusted village pub restaurant repeatedly presents the best value for money, high quality food. The choice is good, the ambience warm and classic English village, ample parking, staff welcoming and proficient and a hotel too! Never fails to impress the most decerning diners. Really excellent and so far impossible even to match let... More

Superb country pub, with a hotel attached, which is both friendly and has a great variety on its menu. Children friendly and a separate menu to accommodate. If you're in the area, i'd definitely recommend.

If you know Essex , you'll know that there are very few pubs/restaurants that are open on a Monday , luckily the Fox is. My wife and I poped in and had 2 x mains with a couple of pints of real ale and a soft drink, for less than £26 , excellent value. I would especially recommend the home... More

The rooms were immaculate with excellent facilities and a stocked fridge with milk, croissants, orange juice and water. The pub offered good food and a good selection of beer and ales.

Fantastic country style pub where you always receive a warm welcome. The food is consistently good and the staff polite and accommodating. There is always a large selection of beer on offer and the general "feel" of the place is excellent. I had the pleasure of staying in one of the motel style rooms and was impressed with the standard.... More
