We've been meaning to try this place for a while and booked a table last week in the bar area for an evening meal. The food was quick to arrive, well presented by friendly staff. I expected a bigger bill given what some of the local competition charge, but was pleasantly surprised. Will definitely try the sunday lunch next time.

Ate in a la carte restaurant and everything was great. Tasty, well presented and plentiful, all four of us really enjoyed our meals and would recommend it. Service was also very good and we will visit again.

Celebrated a family birthday at The Foxhouse and we had an excellent evening. The service was first class and the food was freshly cooked and top quality. This was supplemented with delightful ale from Two Roses Brewery a truly memorable evening and a restaurant that I would highly recommend.

My partner always has the cavery here which from what he says is amazing. You get some Much food! I'm not into cavery so I normally get something from the menu. I had a beef curry, I could of cooked it better at home. It tasted like a bad stew. Nice pub though and friendly staff. Stick to the cavery

The food here is so good me and my husband come here often. The pub has a lovely traditional feel and always warm and welcoming. There is usually plenty of room so we usually don't have to book a table. The food is always cooked fresh to order and everything is homemade including the chips and Yorkshire puddings! Very generous... More
