We have been twice recently. I doubt that pub food gets better. Because of that it gets busy so not for you if you're impatient! Also you will need a designated driver it is a long way out.

We were very disappointed, queuing up like school dinners was the unfortunate start but the food looked good so we just thought it would be ok. The meat was slapped on the... More

The Foxhouse is a traditional pub in the middle of nowhere! It serves the most amaaaazing carverys ever and the pub menu food is beautiful! It's a lovely, quaint pub that serves proper grub! It's in a lovely, peaceful surrounding which sets the atmosphere. Staff are always very helpful and it's always clean. We've been going for over two years... More

Just been for Sunday lunch. Car park was busy so thought it looked promising. Very busy inside and a lovely chatty atmosphere with pleasant background music and devote was good. No direction from waiting staff as to how the menu and Carvery system worked. Carvery station looked well presented so we opted for the one course Carvery at £8.95 per... More
