Had a meal here while staying locally. Excellent quality and plenty of it. In view of previous reviews we popped in earlier in the day and booked a table, which is recommended. Staff very welcoming

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Came across The Fox by chance whilst on a break at The Old Rectory. I agree with all th other reviews regarding atmosphere, quality and value of meals. It is good to see a local pub doing so well.

“nice steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Food here is ok, no frills pub, the prices reflect this, more of a drinkers pub than a restaurant, but if you want a quick meal, good portions at a good price the fox is the place. just the usual bar meals gammon, steak, cottage pie, fish pie. nothing fancy.had to wait a while. you have to book, or the tables will be flooded with drinkers

“Great Pub Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were staying on a weekend break at The Old Rectory Hotel. We had a stroll to the Fox on our first day as the room wasn't ready yet. The girl behind the bar was really friendly. We stayed for one drink and had a look at the menu which made our minds up for Saturday night so we booked a table. The food is great value and the Landlord and Landlady are very welcoming indeed.. The same bar maid was working and she remembered us and made us feel like regulars in the pub. I had the filled Yorkshire pudding and my wife had the curry, both were very nice indeed. Our evening was made even more memorable and enjoyable because we got chatting to some of the locals who we found out later were an integral part of the local Amateur Dramatic society. Anyway, to sum up, a great pub with good food and a great atmosphere. If you're in the area make sure you go and try the food. If we are ever in the area again we will certainly go back. Well done to the landlord, landlady and all your staff, a great Pub!!

We have been there a few times in the last couple of months. and it is always welcoming and the food is excellent. The gammon is enormous and the cottage pie is delicious. The dining room is cosy. Highly recommended
