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 decided to pop in for a drink and a light lunch with my mother-in law today, the bar area was busy (all the four seat tables had already been taken, most by parties of two, leaving only two...

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. The food was great value but the menu was limited but we... More

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

Usually excellent, but as regular diners sometimes the service takes a dip, maybe due to high turnover of staff ?, but the food is virtually always excellent,but expensive although lovely, really best saved for special occasions and treats

A really nice menu, especially for me as I don't beef or lamb. Dessert was fantastic, no wonder its hard to get a booking nowadays.

I had high hopes when I arrived and the friendly staff got us off to a good start. The menu looked great but not all the dishes were quite as good as they sounded and overall we were a little disappointed, especially having had a high standard set by the Pen Y Cae Inn in S. Wales a couple of... More

On the occasion of our daughter's birthday we went courtesy of our son in law to The Fox - The menu was good with something for everyone. The staff were great, attentive and very courteous. There were eight of us and we pretty much partook of the entire menu between us. The food was served piping hot, always a bonus,... More
