I have just read the other reviews of this pub, and just wish we had seen them before wasting time and money at this pub! My husband booked three nights at the Fox as a birthday surprise for me. We arrived at 6.30pm, to an unlit, unwelcoming building and finally managed to get in just after 7pm after hammering at a side door. While the bedroom was acceptable, the bathroom left everthing to be desired - the loo had not been properly cleaned, the bath was disgusting (hairs in the plughole, green slime from a dripping tap, and just generally grubby). Downstairs, the dining room was bleak, badly lit and festooned with cobwebs, the lightshades were burnt and decrepit looking, the paintwork was dingy and dirty. The evening meal was reasonable but not exceptional. Breakfast was served in the charming but filthy back kitchen by someone who seemed anxious to leave as quickly as possible - understandable, I suppose. We did the same ourselves - checked out immediately and will certainly never be going back. The pub appears to be a drinking club for locals - the din from the bar finally ended about 12.30, and the landlord was very much the worse for wear the next morning. We booked into the Acorn Inn at Evershot instead, just up the road. What a difference - fantastic service, great welcome, everything sparkling clean, and just for about £10 a night more.
