Three of us for sunday lunch. Was here late summer and sat outside and had pretty much a perfect time. Food again excellent (1 x confit of duck on cassoulet (tiny fraction too salty?), 1 x good home made burger and 1 x steak and kidney - the stand-out dish in my opinion). Lovely pint of Bellhaven 6 Nations beer... More

This is a lovely place in a gorgeous location. A really good quality village gastro pub serving a nice variety of dishes. We went on a Friday lunch time and they kindly served 5 adults, a 1 year old and 2 dogs with food and drinks. A cosy log burner greeted us, as well as some friendly locals and the... More

The Fox is a charming country pub with welcoming staff and an excellent high class menu. The food is locally sourced and fresh and quite delicious.

We had a lovely meal on a cold wintry night. The staff were very polite and attentive without fussing too much. The log fires were lovely to see and so warming. Food was cooked so well and the wines were good too.

We went on a whim as the reviews here were good, but even though we live relatively locally we'd never heard anyone mention The Fox. I tend to judge a place on something simple like a burger - because its a good indicator of attention to detail... Suffice to say we made a booking for a return visit before we... More

Sunday afternoon lunch for two. Had read the reviews and they weren't wrong. Beautiful free house country pub in quiet setting with small(ish) but well thought-out menu. Booking was painless, welcome was warm and laid-back efficiency. Chose cassoulet-like slow cooked pork belly (top crackling), sausage and chorizo on bed of haricot beans. Full of flavour and generous portion. Partner had... More

So glad we decided to give The Fox a try after searching on Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat on a drive out into the countryside yesterday evening. Great selection of real ales and value for money wines with a warm welcome on arrival. The Goats Cheese Honey and Walnut starter was to die for and our respective main courses... More

We have partaken in the excellent choice of beers at the Fox on many occasions but tonight we thought we would try the food. We had a thoroughly delightful meal which was very good value. Dougie and Emna always make you feel welcome and Dougie expertly guided us through the options available. I highly recommend you visit the Fox.

Absolutely Fabulous Food, the Belly Pork was the best I have ever had, my husband had the steak which he said was as good as he has had in France. The dark chocolate kirch cherry pot was scrummy, and the Eggy Bread (sorry I forgot the French name for it) with the salted carramel sauce was delicious. All feeling very... More

A hidden gem of a pub/restaurant. Absolutely wonderful meal the other evening. Starting with a mixed charcuterie delight, complete with homemade breads - yum! And then the steak bavette & fries. Simple and so tasty - authentic in every way. Thank you Dougie & Emna.
