The BEST Sunday lunch EVER!

We had been recommended The Fox so many times and finally made it today. I now wish we'd gone before - it was superb! I'm a veggie but still enjoyed a massive veggie roast whilst the family all ate the full meat roast and tell me the meat melted in their mouths. Desserts were equally as delicious... read more

My boyfriend and I (well, I) have been ticking off a list of local gastropubs near our Wiltshire village, and the Fox was next for a Sunday birthday lunch. The good news - portions generous enough to make you feel the £20 average for a main is reasonable,the free birthday glass of bubbly, lots of perfectly-cooked seasonal and local vegetables... More

Sunday in lunch in the Fox is by far and away the best in the area. It is not cheap but it is good value for money: the portions are huge and the quality is incredible. We had lamb and pork between us and both were mouthwatering. The staff are exceptionally friendly and welcoming, the place has a relaxed feel.... More

We had an excellent meal consisting of an asparagus starter and rump of lamb main course. Not the cheapest establishment we could have visited but when quality is taken into account it's extremely good value for money. The staff are pleasant and welcoming and the surroundings are typical English country pub. Well done the Fox.

We regularly visit the Fox for Sunday Lunch. It's expensive but they offer the best roasts around with huge portions and a doggy bag (actually, a silver foil swan) is standard. I'd also highly rate the atmosphere and the service.

We were the first ones into the pub at lunchtime today and we received a great welcome from the guys behind the bar. The food was excellent, some of the best pub food we've ever had, with great house wine to go with it. We would definitely visit again and would highly recommend this welcoming and comfortable pub.

Me and my fiance went to the fox for the first time for a Sunday roast and it was perfect. Great food and lovely service. I will also say it was very reasonable and we will be going back soon.

We visited on a quiet midweek lunchtime & received a very warm welcome. We had a fixed price Two-Course lunch of whitetail & Cornish fish and chips with amazingly huge chip wedges. This was at a good price & was most enjoyable. Would recommend to anyone passing nearby.A lovely rustic pub/ restaurant with a good feel to it.

My husband and i went for lunch to The Fox as we had money left on a voucher that our children had given us as a present and we had previously been there for dinner but not used all of the gift voucher. We decided to share a starter and ordered the Scotch egg. The scotch egg had a wonderfully... More
