Lovely evening

We were lucky enough to get a table on a Friday night for dinner. The staff were very friendly and were able to recommend from the menu and the food was lovely!

We stopped going to The Fox, as it got a bit complacent, stuffing in more tables without more staff, and we had a number of problems with "lost" / delayed food orders, and poor quality food and service. I am delighted to report that we tried it out again and it's back to its old high standards - hurrah! The... More

We reserved a table for nine of us and they had it all ready and waiting. The food was very good, but like all gourmet pubs, not cheap.

Visited recently with a mixed group following a meeting. We had a light lunch - steak sandwiches and a drink. Really good service and a lovely lunch.

We had a very delicious lunch here with friends who live locally and eat here quite often. We understand why, since the food was excellent. Our starter of scallops served on couscous was outstanding and the meat pie filled with tender pieces of beef in an ale-flavoured sauce was full of flavour - the pastry was a dream. We shouldn't...

Went on 11th November 2015 and we were extremely pleased with the food and service that we got. We had the King prawn, crab and chorizo linguine and the salmon with new potatoes. We eat out a lot and it takes a lot to impress us, but we were both extremely impressed with the meals we received. The restaurant was... More

Visited the Fox for a spontaneous Wednesday evening meal. We had not been here before however have driven past and it looks lovely from the outside. The interior is welcoming and it was busy which gave the place a good atmosphere. I ordered a glass of wine which was good quality. We ordered some olives but these only arrived with... More

Certainly worth giving the benefit of the doubt I would... More

We went to have dinner on Saturday night with pre-booked. We arrived early in trend to have drink at bar but it's quite small and no open space in the bar.It was good that they offered the table before the time we booked.The starter was great and fresh. We just randomly ordered the main. No one suggest. not all of... More
