Dinner at The Snooty Fox last night [Sunday 20 March 2016] was a treat for my husband and I at the end of a second wonderful stay at the Swallow's Rest, Brigstock. The Snooty Fox is on the list of recommendations by the Swallow's Rest and the first time we visited we simply didn't have time to try it out.... More

A lovely country pub that offers excellent quality food.We visited on a Saturday lunchtime and were pleasantly suprised to find the specials menu was offering 2 courses for £10.95.Both the starters and main courses were very good quality.The presentation of the food was faultless as also was the taste.We will certainly be visiting again in the not too distant future.

As you can imagine it was extremely busy, but although a little chaotic there were plenty of staff on hand to cope. There was a set menu, with a fixed price for two or three courses. The menu was varied, the food well cooked, portion sizes were fine for me but someone with a larger appetite may have been disappointed.Overall... More

Here again after a previous lovely Sunday lunch. We weren't disappointed. Service was excellent, food was delicious. 3 courses for £22.95, 2 for £18.95. Mussels were beautifully cooked, stuffed mushrooms and the scallops deemed superb. Main courses were equally good, roast beef, pork, chicken wrapped in pancetta and an asparagus and tomato based quiche. Vegetables weren't over cooked and complimented... More

Sunday lunch was delicious. There was a lovely welcoming atmosphere and although busy the service was excellent. We particularly liked that all food is sourced locally.

Not having been here for many years, we arrived at 7.45 and the bar/restaurant was packed - don't turn up on a Saturday night without a reservation! We were served promptly at the bar by friendly staff and shown to our table as there was nowhere to sit there. As well as the menu, there are daily specials on a... More

Went here for my birthday in January and had a very welcoming experience, the food was wonderful and enjoyed by all. The pub has a good range of beverages to accompany the meal cooked by a relatively new chef and kitchen staff.

Really felt sorry for the waiters/waitresses. It is obvious that extra staff are needed in such a busy restaurant for Sunday Lunch. Hope the management are able to rectify.

Description
The Snooty Fox is a traditional village pub and restaurant serving fresh, homemade food as well as fine wines and ales. It is situated in Lowick,Northamptonshire.The menu is anything but traditional pub grub. Whilst the cuisine is British through and through, the flair and imagination poured in to each dish puts the food on another level. Diners will be delighted with dishes such as pan seared fillet of sea bass on a bed of wilted spinach and served with a shellfish bisque and tempura coated samphire grass; wild mushroom, red onion and dolce latte cheese tart served with courgette ribbons and sun blushed tomatoes and roasted duck breast served with spring greens, raspberry sauce and a balsamic reduction as well as a delicious selection of steaks.The Snooty Fox is highly recommended if you are looking for hearty yet refined British cooking with idyllic views of the countryside.
