prosecco well priced and excellent. Tried the Sharer Plate which was amazing . Some of the best whitebait I have tried and both the chorizo and sausages were top quality. Ambience great and staff friendly. Excellent place to lunch.

Stopped at The Fox for a bar lunch one Saturday in August. The bar and restaurant were very attractive, clean and fresh. Not really a traditional pub more of a "gastropub/restaurant" but I think this is the market they are aiming for. Our party of 4 found the menu not too full. My partner just had a plate of chips...

The Fox has managed to get it just right. We've been for evening meals and lunches on numerous occasions. The food is always excellent and great value. An assortment of complimentary breads with olive oil and balsamic vinegar is a lovely start to the meal. The food is always presented in an attractive way without overloading the plate so three...

The Fox is a wonderful restaurant, we have been many times and always had a fantastic meal. High quality food, the price does reflect this but it is worth paying that little bit more in my opinion. Not really a place we take the kids, more of an adult place eat to be honest. Definitely worth trying here!

The Fox is, well....not what I would call a traditional pub. I am not a native Brite and neither have I been to many pubs but I guess this is a nice combo of a pub and a restaurant. We went for lunch - got the soup of the day (potato soup), chicken and roasted potatoes, vegetables and chocolate cheescake... More

It seemed to us that the decor was rather tired and outdated - giving a rather bland & downbeat ambience. The staff were excellent and the service good. The food was also good - although my steak was very definitely medium (when ordered to be rare) - this was not charged for when it was pointed out to the waitress... More

Lovely country pub and good beer. Bar meals are great the restaurant is la carte and very very nice. Good value for money. Lovely setting with large beer garden, parking a bit tight at peak times. Easy for locals to walk to and great as a base if you want to walk the Letchworth Garden City Greenway.

I have been to the Fox dozens of times but this is my first review. In all these visits I never had a bad experience. Food is great, staff is friendly and location is perfect. The quality of the products is fantastic, this is the best place for oysters. Seafood in general is amazing. I think I have tried pretty... More

We went for a special occasion after lunch at Frankie and Benny's in Bedford. Why didn't we go back to Frankie & Benny's? While the experience at F&B's is what it is i.e. a franchise, at least the staff were polite and not patronising. The menu at The Fox is false, with pretentious dishes on offer at exaggerated prices. Service... More

We've had a love/hate relationship with The Fox historically and I'm pleased to say we're back to LOVING it! Today we visited for lunch in the bar (we can take our dog), both had the roast (beef and chicken for my partner), followed by the baked chocolate cheesecake. Couldn't fault it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.
