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.

Visited the Fox Inn for only the second time recently. From the moment we came through the front door to our departure, the service was of a very high standard. We had time, over a drink, to look at the menu and our orders taken. When shown to our table we were asked if we wanted water and our starters... More
