We have been three times in the past year and have not been disappointed the standard of food and its presentation were very good overall decor and ambiance make it ideal for business or Leisure. All three courses were very imaginatively presented with some subtle and attractive garnishes. Excellent.!!! I make one criticism as positive as possible at these prices... More

The olives and hand cooked crisps where tasty but the dipping sauce for the bread wasn't pleasant( oil ? Rapseed and balsamic too sharp . I chose the filo lamb parcels .... More

Lovely pub serving beautiful food. We were in a large party so we had to order ahead, did think menu was quite fussy however, when the food came it was lovely, and not fussy. The service was great - just a great night!!

We went to the Fox for a meal to celebrate our anniversary. The food and service was excellent and we appreciated the extra touches to recognise that it was a special occasion for us. Its not the cheapest but definitely the best place to eat in Letchworth / Willian.

Good location, sat in the garden as the sun was shining. Service friendly and good, nice atmosphere in the bar (and pretty busy for a weekday lunchtime). Food was good - would like to go back and try the evening menu in the restaurant. Not exceptional but pretty good all round experience.

My wife and I have been visiting The Fox for well over ten years and have always enjoyed our visits there.

We are also disappointed to read your review and apologise that you did not receive our usual high standard of service. We serve the same menu at lunch in both the bar and restaurant and unfortunately you were misinformed. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we are looking into the matter. More

A bright and vibrant bar very warm and welcoming as were the staff, we went for Sunday lunch families with children made a great hubbub, didn't like their barking dogs though, which I thought the consistently of it should have been removed for the ambience of the customer.

Was recommended to visit The Fox so visited with 4 others for a midweek lunchtime meal. Food was very good with portions nicely sized for a lunchtime meal - we left feeling satisfied and not completely stuffed! Service was reasonable enough though we did have to get the attention of the waitress once or twice to get new drinks so... More
