Newly refurbished to a high standard, lots of little rooms to drink in and nice bar area. We stayed overnight, the rooms were small but clean, well appointed with modern TV on wall, water ( perfect for the hangover) tea and coffee and wonderful biscuits in a jar ( not the awful wrapped ones) nice selection of light breakfast and...

As regulars in the previous incarnation of The Fox, we were looking forward to seeing the newly refurbished hotel. The staff are warm and welcoming. The atmosphere is cosy and homely. The beer, Hooky of course, is very good. Although we haven't eaten there yet, I'm sure it won't be long. A change for the better.

Excellent venue, immaculate throughout and, sad I know, the toilets are immaculate. Staff very friendly, food v good and well priced. Most importantly the coffee, best we have had for a long time. All in all 5 stars.

Three of us went for lunch today to try out this newly refurbished restaurant. It has been done out very nicely and we were greeted warmly from behind the bar. The waitress told us to sit where ever we liked and she would bring the menus round. We waited for what seemed a long time and we're just about to... More

My wife and I were keen to test out the food at the newly refurbished pub. The decor is great if only the food could live up to its surroundings. My wife opted for shrimp and scallop starter which she enjoyed, but this is where the enjoyment ended. The main courses were pretty poor. I had the fox burger, it... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted that you like the Fox, but of course sorry that you didn't enjoy your food experience as much. I will certainly look into this, and see where we can improve. I have sampled most of the menu, and the fishcakes actually have a high fish content, and less potato, and I wonder... More

Went in here with some friends on Saturday, after recently reopening, nice stylish decor from the old brewery. Good range of Hooky beer on tap, very nice pint, wine also went down well and staff were very friendly. Didn't have food but will try next time. All in all we were impressed.

Been waiting for Fox to open as we were told it was to be a gastro pub, I don't think so! Food very average and very overpriced. Pub itself looks lovely after renovations and staff very pleasant. One thing that did surprise me was the drinks menu detailing different spirits and beers, really I would expect them to be able... More

After waiting an hour for for food it was very average. Sent a dish back as extremely unappetising. if you like a pub with good seasonal fresh food this is not for you. However if you like deep fried generic food that is little better than your local harvester then "fill your boots". Not recommended.

We are sorry to hear of your unsatisfactory experience. We can only apologise for the delay in your food being served; we have been amazed at the response and interest in the Fox, and hope this is a sign of things to come, but we have been slightly overwhelmed at times, and the service may not have met the levels...

I stayed here as I was attending a dinner at nearby Heythrop Hall. The reception at the bar was very friendly and I was taken to my room which was perfectly good for the price and served my purpose well, although a slightly more powerful shower wouldn't go amiss. Overall a nice little hotel at a good price
