We have not been to the Fox for a while. It used to be an unspoiled Cotswold pub with character. It must have got new owners who have spent a lot of money turning it into something else. The setting is lovely, but the interior has been opened up and it was cold and no longer cosy. The plastic flowers... More

This is such a lovely old pub in a beautiful location.......BUT..... it could be so much better, if a little TLC was taken. I agree with other comments, it is grubby and really needs a good scrub in places, when you walk down the back stairs from the accommodation to the breakfast room the staircase and corridors are in desperate...

I am not one to complain but felt really disapointed with our experience. We live in the Cotswolds and have been to high standard pubs and restaurants but have never had to pay over £13.00 for a roast dinner. The Fox charge a whopping £17.95. When you pay this you expect high quality and lots of it. We had 2... More

Fabulous country B&B - clean spacious room with superb views. Friendly staff and excellent food served in the pub. Breakfast was also great with a good variety of options, from cereal, fruit to the full English! Ideally located for Blenheim Palace and only half an hour by car to Oxford.

I have just returned after a 2 night stay at the fox with my mum and my 10month old puppy and highly recommend anyone to stay there. We booked the stay on a groupon deal and can't get over what good value it was. Our room was beautiful and you could tell money had been spent on it. Although not... More

We stayed here on the 4th April for a weekend on a KGB voucher. Our room was clean and spacious. We ate in their restaurant on our second night and as some people have said the food was expensive, but we found the prices on par with the area. The standard of the food was excellent with friendly and helpful... More

My wife and I, along with her brother and his wife booked a mini-break at this hotel through KGB deals. We booked two rooms paying the same for both. When we arrived on Friday 4th April we were shown to our rooms and my wife and I were told "This is your room" and her brother and his wife were... More

If you enjoy an English Country Pub, set in a wonderful location, excellent food and delightful accommodation then The Fox is for you. A warm friendly welcome and lots of local knowledge is all you need to start a Cotswold adventure. We will be back.

Spent 2 nights here and thought the place was great. It's position, right beside the river, is fabulous. Watching the pheasants, buzzards (or kites) and other wildlife from the dining area was a real treat. Our 'beamed' room was spacious and spotless with coffee/tea making facilities and the pub had that warm, cosy, English pub feel to it that the... More

I can see that many reviewers have commented on having some difficulty sleeping if you have a room over the bar at the front. We stayed in such a room for 2 nights last week and slept perfectly. Admittedly they were Monday and Tuesday nights, in March, but we were happy to stay in the pub till closing time one... More
