A Good Place for Lunch

We have stopped here for Lunch on our journey home several times now, initially on the recommendation of friends who lunch there on their journey to visit us. It is, of course, a Brunniing & Price pub/restaurant, and as a chain, their policy seems to be to offer a range of bog-standard pub meals... read more

Wasn't too happy when this venue was picked for a family celebration as it was a long way for us to travel (56 miles round trip), and mum-in-law hates travelling. Well worth it. Fantastic food. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Sure we will visit again.

I went to the Fox for my Dads 70th Birthday party in a group of 20. It's one of his favourite places to eat so we were really grateful that they could accommodate us. As it was a special birthday I wanted to make sure that the table was decorated and I had also made a cake which I wanted... More

Thought the food was very average and waaaay over priced. Doesn't deserve the reputation it has. Used to be the best place to eat in Shropshire but over the last few years the food has got poorer quality and yet the price has gone up. Excellent selection of beers and lunch menu ok. But food is way over priced.

We've visited here a few times as it has a good menu selection and the food is of a good quality. Not many options if you're a veggie though

Large, well kept pub, in the Shropshire countryside, near to Newport. For sunny days, there is extensive outdoor seating and inside is warm, comfortable and relaxed. Good food - ranging from sandwiches to restaurant standard dishes, served by friendly, efficient staff. Great example of how a good pub should be and well worth a visit.

We have used the Fox many times if slightly infrequently. Since our last visit a few months ago, two things had changed ..... A big plus is that they now do table service. We had an attentive if slightly over stretched attendant who was working very hard. We decided to treat ourselves to fillet steak, regretfully they had sold out... More

I've visited The Fox a few times when visiting my Grandparents in Newport. It is my Grandad's favourite place to go to eat. Our most recent visit was as wonderful as usual. We went on a Wednesday night and it was really busy with a great atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and accommodating, finding us a suitable table for... More
