Came across this inn by chance and what a find! Family run place with fantastic service and among the best meals we've had. Reasonable price, good selection and very atmospheric complete with cosy fire. Will definitely return again and again.

The Fox house is a great place to grab a bite to eat. It's quite traditional ( no fancy dishes). It's clean and well presented and you get a friendly welcome and service at reasonable prices. Y

Atmosphere was OK and the staff good but the food is just stuff you can cook at home. If you are after large portions or a carvery then this may be the place for you. Not for me.
