A proper pub! Real ales, fantastic staff & service, homely food to warm the heart and belly! All at affordable prices. Beautiful exposed stone walls, wood burning stove and lovely atmosphere all contributed to a really nice experience. We will definitely be visiting again, whether just to sample some local real ales, or for a meal after a day out... More

The meals were well cooked, we had steak perfectly cooked medium rare with saute potatoes, and cheese bacon burger with chips. Friendly service and the meals arrived promptly. The only minus point was that the chips would have been better if they were homemade and fresh cut not mediocre catering chips. Also the burger bun was a generic sesame seed... More

I visited Red Fox Pub with my family for the dinner. The Welcome was warm and very friendly. The staff knows how to greet their customers and make them feel comfortable. Their sense of humour and efficiency were great and every place should learn the magic of their Customer Service. We have ordered the signature Burgers with chips. It was... More

Visited the Red Fox while visiting family in Wales. The staff were friendly, the service was excellent and the food was very good and reasonably priced. The kids' menu also had a good range of choices. The only slight criticism is no draught Guinness, just some strange device that gasses it from a can...doesn't quite taste the same. Would definitely... More

Called into this lovely village pub for lunch. Met, sorry welcomed by very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you. Prices reasonable and food very good. Only criticism could do with a more varied real ale selection as it only has the standard offerings. Would definitely call again.

Fantastic Real Ale pub hiding off the beaten track. Wooden beams, fireplace, cool in the summer and I imagine cosy in winter. The food was very reasonably priced and is huge. I couldn't finish my ploughmans so the landlady told me to wrap the cheese and take it home. Very friendly and welcoming without being smarmy. Also has 4 veggie... More
