Good food and atmosphere

Had dinner here with friends one who is a vegetarian so not always easy choice but plenty of veggie meals. A pleasant evening was had by all, a special thank you to Richard who was working very hard.

We took our son and family for a meal in the bar and thought the quality of the food was poor I had fish and chips and the chips were pale and not cooked my Husband had Scampi and that was cold and greasy it will be a long while before we risk eating again there.

We thought we'd call in for lunch after visiting nearby Holmfirth last Saturday - and I'm glad we did. Very pleasant surroundings, brilliantly helpful staff, fantastic local scenery...and the food was really, really tasty. Plenty on your plate and a delight to eat. Jude had meat and potato pie, which I had to sample because I was told to. The... More

We had lunch with friends at the Fox House after many years away and were delighted to find that the food is still as good as ever with a warm and friendly welcome from the staff. The interior is typically a country style inn, with dark wood panelling, low ceilings, big stone fireplaces and good food. It is much larger... More

My friend and I made called here for lunch mid week, both being on motorcycles we wondered if we would be welcome. It was a nice surprise to see a lovely decorated interior with a welcoming barman. We had a drink and decided to order food, both of us had Burgers and they were honestly one of the best I've... More

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.

Went to the fox house last Sunday as a group of 12 to celebrate our engagement with the family. Heard the fox house was good for Sunday dinner. 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

I have visited The Fox House on a number of occasions with my wife for lunch or evening bar meals and we have fond it excellent every time. The decor of the place is clean and they have a great roaring fire for those winter evenings. They have a extensive range of hand pulled beers and other drinks to choose... More
