We have had 2 meals here in the past 6 weeks. Both were excellent. Steak that almost melts in your mouth, it was amazing. Fish and chips, great chunky chips and the fish tasted lovely. The puddings won't disappoint either! The chocolate brownie is a...More

On Friday The Fox has Pizza Night. They’re done in one of those open ovens and taste fabulous. A nice local but go in the Friday and grab a pizza.
