Not much to say really - food was tasteless and the soft drinks were more expensive than alcohol. There are much better places to eat close by.

Can be very busy at weekends, i have eaten here several times and always found it to be good value. If you are a food snob then maybe its not for, they have not worked out yet that if the portions were smaller they would sell more deserts,

We frequent this place at least twice a month. The food is all fresh made,so there is sometimes a waiting time. The carvery a feast for the eyes. certainly not for the fainthearted. As I am a vegetarian,there isn't much choice. The fish meals though are a plenty. my favourites are the Haddock and Chips or the Fish pie(you can... More

I have been to the Fox House about twenty times every time I eat anything other than the famous carvary it's terrible. Tonight my boyfriend ate what he describes as a bland burger. I ordered a hot beef and onion sandwich. It came without onions so was a dry beef and a really cheap bread bun I asked for gravy... More

The choice was massive and luckily no stupid waiting times which is a must when eating out with a young family. Well done to... More

We've been eating here for over 30 years on and off and have seen the Foxhouse Inn gradually fall victim to the portion control fashion.
