Such a bad experience makes a review hard to compile. Served an ale full of sediment, replacement given but no apology. Landlady stated the barrel wasn't finished as if I made the sediment appear. Food ordered was of poor quality so decided to just pay and leave. Landlady asked what was wrong so I said I wasn't happy with quality... More

I am really sad that this gentleman felt he had to leave this review as most of what he says is factually correct. I am shocked that this was such a "shocking experience".

This is a delightful pub with a bowling alley and beer garden. Great service from the friendly staff. It appears to be a social hub for the local community. There are lots of advertised events taking place here in the future. They do food as well as serve a lovely pint. The 91 bus from Dover stops outside.

We regularly pop in to the Fox Inn but booked for their steak night again. This is a nice little local pub, very friendly and we like their curry nights and steak nights. They have a choice of steaks which you cook on a hot stone on your table. Some of the best locally sourced steaks we've ever had. Great... More
