Chocolate trio of desserts - worth breaking your diet for!

Booked a table for Saturday lunch as we were visiting a crop circle in the area! Previously had been on a Sunday, so was interested to see some lighter bites on the lunch menu. Partner enjoyed the large choice of unusual and tasty meat/fish starters and mains (snails, liver, rabbit, duck) and my... read more

A wonderful eating experience yet again at the Foxham Inn. The The Summer 'Vegeterian Menu' once again showed the chef's skills, a well balanced meal with some sophisticated courses . Couldn't choose one course above the others. At one point I even thought of becoming a vegetarian! However decided I can't wait to have one of Neil's steaks next time... More

Amazing, a menu that actually has snails as a starter and rabbit as a main course both were excellent. My husband had ham on the bone which he really enjoyed but found a little too much, the friendly landlady had it wrapped up and we both had another meal out of it. Must say this was one of the cleanest... More

We recently made a trip out to Chippenham and wanted a quick stop off. A quick search online gave us the Foxham Inn and after a scan of the menu and a quick count of my fingers after said hungry dog tried to have a couple of them for his lunch, we decided on some Fish and Chips and some... More

The food is definitely well-presented, well-cooked and seemingly French inspired though with local ingredients. My lyonnaise potatoes were text book which is great on the one hand but perhaps lacking in depth of flavour (in our opinions anyway) but still well worth a visit. We went on a saturday evening and the lady owner, Sarah, is very hospitable and down-to-earth.... More

Went there for wife's birthday lunch recently mid week. There was not many customers so the pub was quiet, service was relatively quick. The food was well presented and tasted pretty good and fresh, I believe (I opted for the fish and chips). The bill was reasonable, overall I was somewhat impressed. I would probably return again on another occassion.

Yes, it's unpretentious from the outside & yes, it's beyond the back of beyond but as other reviewers have described the food is exceptionally good. Everything - particularly the fish which I'm quite fussy about - seemed very fresh and if you are in the restaurant part rather than the bar you can actually watch the food being prepared. This...

We maybe out in the middle of no-where but we think that adds to the charm. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future Neil and... More

Really enjoyable multi course meal in the lovely Foxham Inn. Sarah as welcoming as ever. Too many dishes to mention but included asparagus, meatballs, cod, snails - you name it and it just kept coming. Pud also devine - where did we put it! Will be back soon!

Stumbled across this sweet spot when beating a retreat from Avebury on June 21st! Hastily looked online for a pub elsewhere and spotted The Foxham Inn. Slight despondancy on arrival - it looked so ordinary! Don't let looks put you off - we ventured in to find a wonderful welcome and a delicious sounding menu. At the bar, undecided on... More

Excellent lunch today at Foxham Inn. Superb mains of sea trout with seafood risotto (Wow) and lamb with sweetbreads. Then Lemon Plate ( polenta cake,ice cream and posset ) and a divine cheesecake! Cooking of the highest order and friendly service. Can't wait to return.
