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

My friends and I were on a motorcycle tour of the UK and picked up our bikes near Ongar. This was the perfect place to spend our first couple of nights. My room was comfortable and clean. Good value. The low price for the room (45 pounds) did not include breakfast, which left it up to me whether to spend... More

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

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.
