I have enjoyed my visits here, over a period of several years, and consider the food to be very good. On my last visit, once again, the specials options were verbally related by the staff, without them being priced. I had mussels, which were very good, but I thought rather expensive when later on I saw how much my companion... More

A friend and I were due to meet for Sunday pub dinner but didn't want the usual Sunday roast. Most traditional pubs will only do a roast on Sundays but the fox still had other items on the menu. As it's not too far from home and we had heard good reviews we decided the fox it was! It is... More

Exactly as the title suggests - very nice overall. The starters were probably our favourite - the special smoked haddock and monkfish soup, and the Spanish chorizo risotto. Our mains were plentiful, traditional fish and chips and the meat mixed grill. Again very nice, although the meats a little dry and overlooked. Desserts presented very nicely (cheeseboard and a line... More

Cheerful greeting, quick response which followed with attentive attitude throughout our stay. Food was good quality pub fare. The set menu is excellent value and very tasty. Four of us had different mains and everyone was... More

This is a tried and tested restaurant and we have never had cause to complain. However following a recent Saturday night visit with a group of friends the food just didn't live up to its usual high standards at least for some of the group. Having left it late to book we were seated in the bar area which wasn't... More

We decided to eat here without making a booking. We were informed that the restaurant was busy but could eat it the bar area but this was so nice we didn't mind. The staff were fantastic and extremely friendly. The food was absolutely fantastic and the portions were so generous we couldn't fit in a dessert. I would definitely recommend... More
