Very nicely laid out restaurant at the back of the pub. Good service although we never got the jug of water asked for but the poor girl serving us was slightly rushed off her feet so we let it go! Food very good - offering of bread and dipping oil whilst we chose food. Quite expensive we thought for the... More

We took an elderly Aunt to celebrate her birthday and were not disappointed with the selection, quality, presentation and taste of the food provided. A refreshingly innovative, enticing and far from dull menu matched by superbly presented food. I do not normally indulge in desserts, but those on offer at the Fox in my opinion, put anything served by similar... More

I adore the platters they have here and regularly go at least once a week with my Mum for one, so when I returned from uni it was our first stop to get our usual. I was so pleased to discovered they now do gluten free bread (always exciting find)! However when I asked what I could eat on the... More

My girlfriend had heard many good things about the place but had never been.This was rectify time. The premises have a pub & restaurant section. There is seating outside, though this is for the pub drinkers. There is a car park with a reasonable amount of room. Service: Quick, efficient & well spaced. We were not hurried and this was... More

We have been coming here for a while now. The food is consistently very good - fairly simple dishes, prepared freshly and executed well. I think the price is reasonable for what you get and there are sometimes some very good deals (we went on Sunday and they had some good prices for bin end wines). The service has ranged... More

Food seemed to be a long time coming. They lost our dessert order for 1/4 hour! We didn't really feel the experience matched the price!

My wife and i stumbled upon the fox by chance and stopped to have a drink on the green outside. We noticed the smart dining area and decided to book a sunday lunch there soon. We had that lunch today and are very glad we did! I had a very decent parma ham and egg salad to start. For main... More

Have visited several times for special occasions and enjoyed very good quality meals, service and ales. Comes at a price... But you get what you pay for. Lovely countryside setting with lovely old church next door, quiet garden and view across to village pond. This week I went to their first beer festival. Well organised, modest sized beer festival with... More

We usually go to another local Restuarant , which has not been too good lately, so we went to the Fox for Saturday lunch after looking at the reviews, and we are so glad we did. Everything was excellent. There was a very good choice on the menu, and all four of us had different items for our three course... More
