Description: We are set in the centre of the village of Burwell - A 300 year old pub with a history of being different - a tradition that is being carried on at present! In the wood panelled bar you can expect to find the usual range of refreshments and a choice of real ales from large and small breweries from all over the country. Our twist comes in the evening in the form of the Mexican restaurant in which you can dine in a sophisticated and vibrant area, totally different from that of the bar next door. The popular menu, offering AUTHENTIC MEXICAN cuisine and top quality local steaks was put together by owners Bob and Lou Taylor and was born partly from our passion for Tequila! We bring some of the best dishes from Mexico, which have been slightly modified to suit the British palette. As all the dishes are cooked fresh, they can be as mild or as spicy as you prefer and vegetarian options are available.

Went here with friends all had starters mine seemed to have stood for a while as cheese on the nachos had set real hard but still warm, on to the mains we all chose different I went with the fajitas , would have been nice to be asked how I liked the sliced rump to be cooked not just well done, and other reviewers have said very large portions none of the party could eat all the meals served, on the whole a reasonable nice meal was had by all, and the strawberry tequila was a nice touch.

We returned to eat at the Fox after, for no particular reason, a gap of a year or two.
It has hardly changed at all and, obviously, doesn't need to.
It's unusual to find a Mexican restaurant at one end of a country pub but it seems to work.
How authentic the food is, I don't know, but we very much appreciated the fact that, as all the food is cooked to order, you can choose just how hot you want each dish and having chilies sliced and placed at the side of the plate as an optional extra, was a nice touch.
We found the portions to be on the generous side, to say the least, and they certainly don't intend anyone to leave hungry!
With a free strawberry tequila to accompany the bill, we intend to return sooner next time.

We just got back from an evening at the Fox and it was lovely. We first went there a few months back with a groupon voucher and really enjoyed it. Tonight there were four of us and all meals were perfect! It is nice to be served good quality food, especially when it is served piping hot, makes a nice change. Portions are massive, but the food is just lovely. We shared two starters and then each had a main which we struggled to get through... We managed to also share a dessert afterwards and all in all it was just lovely. The rose tequila at the end is very nice too. Finally... It's a small place so do book a table, but I booked it this morning and the voice on the other side was really friendly! Good customer service deserves a mention...! Definitely the right place for a special night out!
