This was my second visit here for something to eat, and this time it was out to dinner with the family, this packed and vibrant restaurant still managed to squeeze us all in, though very busy the waitresses still made time to talk to us and make us feel like we was round theirs for dinner rather than an evening...

This pub was amazing - from the very warm welcome as soon as you arrived. The service was fantastic from start to finish. The food was the best meal out I have had in a long time. The prices were very reasonable and the food was served hot and on a hot plate - nothing was to much for the... More

Three of us went to the Fox Inn for Sunday Lunch and were treated to an excellent meal. The lamb shank and the salmon and prawn salad can definitely be recommended, as can the lemon meringue pie. The generous lamb shank was tender, accompanied by a yorkshire, roasts and a variety of vegetables.The salmon was plentiful, as were the prawns... More

We all chose a starter, 3 had the pigeon breasts and one had the pate, these dishes were all very good. Then came the main course, one of the... More

We ate Sunday lunch on our way home from a stay in Kettering. Very good value. The pork crackling was just right. Plenty of pork. Lack of choice of fish. Friendly and attentive staff. Clean and stylish décor.

Visited there with family members on Saturday evening. Booked a table for 6pm and were the second table to be seated. Good menu, and selection of cask ales. The young waitress who came to take our order asked us if there were any special dietary requirements, and we were impressed by this. Our food and drink were very much enjoyed,... More

Saw The Fox on the way home & decided to drop in on the off chance. What a brilliant decision!! The staff were welcoming & professional. No problem tasting a particular wine before ordering and a new bottle was opened especially. Good selection on the menu, both a la carte & set, but not too big. Dishes of the day... More

Attentive staff - lovely food - pleasant surroundings. Average prices - well worth a second visit. Good and varied choice of food with a willingness to change the menu around if required.

My family surprised me with a meal to here for my birthday and it was delicious. The seafood mixed grill was delicious and service was helpful. Will be going back.
