Big portions

Often passed in my days as an extra on Last Of the Summer Wine. Next door to Seymours. Food was good and the portions were massive. Staff friendly and attentive.

On vacation in the area, so stopped in for an evening meal at The Fox House. We arrived just after six on a Monday evening, so it had only just opening for the evening. Early bird specials caught our eye advertised on a menu, but they must be ordered from a chalk board and unless you like chilli or spaghetti... More

Decided to pay a visit to The Fox House after looking at reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The food is brilliant and portions are generous. I had the Oceans Eleven Pie, it came with PROPER chips and extra pie filling. I was stuffed! My husband ordered steak pie and he said that was really good too and... More

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Fox House Inn & Restaurant. We called in for a light evening meal and as soon as I walked in with my assistance dog I was greeted with a warm welcome and told that we could sit anywhere we wanted and as soon as we settled down in a safe and secure area...

We eat here 3 or 4 times per year, it never disappoints, great value, friendly service, good range of food. We've never managed to eat more than a main course, the portions are so generous. The food is tasty. And there's a good and tasty range of food that's wheat and gluten-free. This time I had the cottage pie, it... More

My boyfriend and I visited here on his recommendation and I was not disappointed. As a vegetarian I sometimes find that restaurant menus aren't very adventurous but here is not the case. I enjoyed Stilton and broccoli pot pie and chips (there chips are real thick proper chips) the staff are friendly and prompt and the price is reasonable. The... More

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
