Nice pub restaurant

The food here is excellent, and the service friendly. We had a problem with our car and had to wait for the RAC and they were very understanding when we were delayed. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

If you're visiting the area, like we were, I'd advise you to avoid the more expensive "chic" eateries in the area and pop down to this welcoming local pub. We had our best meal here on our three day trip and it was well cooked and great value for money. It is reassuring to hear local people sitting near to... More

We were late but were welcomed and brought our two dogs. No problem about being late. Very laid back and traditional pub. Nothing like a chain. The roast beef melted in the mouth and the roasties and yorkshires were undeniably home cooked. Delicious desserts too.

Ate here with friends following a 2 hour walk around Chipping Norton. We were very hungry so ordered quite hearty meals; sausages & mash, burgers and scampi. The sausages were particularly good, local I believe! The food was very nice if you are looking for a hearty pub meal. We sat in the restaurant part which was nice at first,... More

A nice Fullers pub with an excellent choice of real ales. There is a separate TV room to watch sport - England v France , six nations was showing when we were there.. Didn't try the food but it looked excellent.

A nice Pub in the centre of the lovely town of Chipping Norton, beers on offer are pleasant Fullers brands, but are well kept. Food is on offer and the meals I've seen served look good and from the menu look good value, although I have not yet sampled.

Called in for a bite while staying at The Fox.Typical pub,bit quirky but very welcoming and knowledgeable barkeep.Food was great and although one starter was not available,waiter was great and made us feel welcome. Portions just right and never felt rushed. We ate in dining room,pub was busy. A very very nice meal. Well worth a visit.

We only stayed for one round (white wine and a pint of real ale) but when the barmaid served other customers she didn't really seem to know what she was doing and couldn't open a bottle of Prosecco type wine. When two of the lagers wouldn't pull through properly (too lively) another barmaid said it could be the lines or... More
