Went on a Tuesday, plenty of people in which is a good sign. My son had an excellent steak and they exchanged the trimmings for a big plate of fresh vegetables without any quibbles. Big portions but good quality food. Felt bad as didn't have any change for a tip,but would certainly go back. Well kept range of real ale... More

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.
