We have visited a few times and the most recent was New Years Day for my mother in law's birthday). Due to a mix up (caused by me, not the restaurant) we hadn't got a table booked and it was extremely busy. However the lovely lady who dealt with us found us a table in the restaurant that we could... More

Be warned if wanting a nice family Christmas family meal as we were sat next to a table six men who got louder and vulgar with very bad language throughout! I didn't complain... More

Beautiful location, big bar/restaurant area. This was our first visit, the food was delicious, the best bar meal I think we've ever had, not the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for, huge portions too. Will be back there very soon!

Called in for a drink with some friends in December. I was driving so I asked for a pint of lime and soda. The same drink at other establishments I have visited (Jacobs Well, Honley & Royal Oak, Upperthong) charge 85p and £1.00 respectively. Cost at the Fox House was a whapping £1.90.

Really enjoyed the food on offer and the portions are massive. The 8 of us all enjoyed our meals from beef brisket to the farmhouse grill. Only let down on this occasion was the cooking of my rump steak extremely over cooked then undercooked when complained. Will definitely go back but would avoid the steak

Having used Tripadvisor to find this place, we were delighted that reviews stood up to the test. We were staying just down the road in Carlecottes, so this was a really convenient spot! Food was very good, and great portion sizes! Four of us had the lovely fish and chips, with plenty of mushy peas and tartar sauce. One of... More
