Visited with a friend for a chat and a couple of pints . Nice comfortable spot near a fire and near the bar. Now here's the rub a bar lady who seems its fun to have everyone jump out of their skin by throwing bottles into the under bar bin so as to create largest noise possible . Frankly childish... More

Visited yesterday. We hadn't booked, arrived at about 12:30, I was surprised how busy the car park was. The restaurant wasn't over busy, we were offered a table near the bar, so a little noisy. Service was prompt and food was average for this style of venue. We chose from the fixed prix menu, choice was limited but adequate. Would... More

I have not been to the Fox since the menus has changed and enjoyed the new choices. Ela always has a warm welcome for my associate and myself. She is an excellent asset to this establishment. The pig cheeks and beef pie where outstanding as well as the starter. We will be back soon.

Popped in here with 4 colleagues for spot of lunch and we all plumped for the fixed price option at £12.50 for 2 courses. I opted for the celeriac soup (delicious and well seasoned) followed by sticky chicken and a green salad. After such a delicious soup I was a little disappointed with the chicken (not sticky and fairly bland)... More

When we arrived the car park was full - always a good sign. Staff were all very pleasant and polite, warm, friendly welcoming atmosphere. Didnt feel rushed at anytime, our table service was excellent, we had time for conversation and aperitifs - our orders were taken once we had settled in and I have to say the food, without exception,...

Met some friends for dinner at this pub/restaurant as its halfway between where we both live. We used to go there years ago and it was very acceptable. However, going back last night it became apparent the food has gone seriously down hill. The menu is pretty uninspiring, so 3 people chose fish and chips, which tells you something of... More

One of the few genuinely family-friendly pubs around. The menu isn't massive, but it is sufficiently varied - enough to leave me thinking about what to order for a considerable amount of time. Friendly, laid back, warm, atmospheric. The food service starts off in early noon and dovetails into dinner time - ideal for those times when we need a... More
