Great pub, bit pricey

Fine pub with good restaurant and I have no complaints about service. Salt beef hash was fantastic especially with a dollop of HP, but burgers looked dry. I really do find serving chips in a bucket very naff..am I alone?? Not the best selection of real beers that I might have been expecting. I... read more

Went in on a Saturday night at 6pm. A table was available. The waiting manager seated us and said we will be served in a few minutes to get our drinks orders. 5 mins passed and 3 waitresses passed us as well as the waiting manager. At the 10 minute mark a waiter approached us and he didn't say hello,... More

Have eaten at The Fox many times over the years. Recently I took a table of 7 there and having not been for a while was staggered at the menu choice - very impressive selection of, well, everything. It was a Tuesday night and the place was packed. The food was universally good and the service, when you could get... More

Would not visit twice... Do not be lured in to order the lobster tail with your steak... It's a joke. I could have fitted my whole dinner in the mini dust bin my chips were served in. Highly priced bland food and poor service😕

Dined at The Fox on the 15th Feb for a Sunday roast on our way to Luton Airport. A truly wonderful atmosphere with fantastic service and great food - a must for those loving the traditional Sunday Roast. The whole place was packed, so you need to reserve otherwise I can imagine you will be turning around and finding somewhere... More

I have been eating here for 10 years and it's always great. I commented the menu reminded me of The Flying Horse, Pulloxhill and I now understand they are linked. The atmosphere is lively, staff friendly and the food is always spot on.

We went here on a Monday evening, and the atmosphere was excellent. I was thinking a Monday would be quiet, it wasn't, but not so busy you couldn't enjoy your meal and receive good service. Fantastic food, we had the venison which was beautiful. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant and would also recommend you book in advance when possible.

I would be the size of a house if I lived near here! Lovely food, always busy, lively atmosphere but not intrusive. I'd recommend booking if there's more than 2 of you. Good cocktails too!
