An enjoyable drink in the warm summer evening

This place is sadly like so many country inns. They start off great and full of ideas,and value for money. Then when they have a good reputation they get complacent, turn dull and overpriced, and end up catering for people who have more money than they do good taste. The food was below average, the meat was nice but veg... More

We had lunch at The Fox pub in Broughton Gifford last Sunday. The menu was good with plenty of selection. The food was excellent with good service, its not cheap, maybe I should say "Value for Money"

This place has everything., character, helpful staff, good menu and lovely food. The owner spends time to talk to his customers. A really good venue.

Quite disappointing Sunday lunch. Whilst the meat was good the roast potatoes were rock hard and the Yorkshire puddings like a large crisp biscuit. Two courses and a bottle of spring water for the two of us came to just over £80!! This was very basic food, not very tasty or particularly well cooked at a very inflated price. I... More

A great family pub and restaurant. Sunday lunch is fantastic but best to book ahead as it is VERY popular. The Fox holds lots of good events like cider festivals, hog roasts, wine tasting evenings etc. Never been disappointed.

The Fox is a great local pub, I am very luck as are my friends and family. The only downside is that it is so popular that you really need to book well in advance. The garden in the summer is any child delight with various animals to be seen, fresh veg and fruit used in the food. Always friendly... More

We were a party of five, booked a table for 15:00. The lamb joint was amazing.. Good pace friendly service. The food was well cooked , hot and presented well. After our meal we took our drinks into their very relaxing garden exploring we found chickens and pigs. Fantastic experience would highly recommend...
