A beautiful facade to this pub/hotel, inside its comfortable in the process of being upgraded, but this doesn't cause a problem. The welcome was warm and friendly, we stayed 3 nights the room was one of the refurbished ones large light comfortable, an enormous super king sized bed. A lovely large refitted bathroom. Tea and coffee replenished daily. We ate in the restaurant on the first night and had a lovely meal, with good service and again very accommodating staff. I recommend this Inn so much we've already booked again for the same time next year.

Room Tip: The four rooms at the top have been refurbished already.

We stayed at 'The Fox Inn' on Friday 23rd August for a nights stay in preparation for visiting Monkey World.

Check-in was friendly and efficient, the room was very nice and had a certain rustic charm about it. The bathroom was a little small and could do with a bit of an update but that's me being picky and certainly in no way takes away how good this place is.

We had a lovely meal on the evening, and despite the wrong meal coming out at first the staff were very apologetic and immediately remedied the situation and were very kind in not charging us for that part of the meal.

The big comfy bed led to a fantastic nights sleep.

The breakfast was very good and caters to everyone's needs, be it toast/cereal or a cooked breakfast if that's what you prefer.

Overall an enjoyable nights stay and would certainly return.

We were not offered any drinks prior to being seated in a dark humid corner which lacked atmosphere ie no background music, the Landlord finally served INCORRECT drinks and managed to spill half a pint over the table, AND our child without offering to replace the drink, he merely wiped the menu! This then was out weighed by the EXCELLENT food which was well prepared and presented... however due to our starter plates not being cleared our mains took far too long, no fault to the kitchen staff, just poor front of house service. We finally gave up and did not order deserts as not one of the owners/managers returned to us or bothered to see if we needed another round of drinks. Sadly won't be returning any time soon.

We stayed at the Fox on Saturday 17th August for a B&B.
The room was superb, with a most comfortable bed and good bathroom with shower. The water pressure takes a bit to be desired, but all OK.
The breakfast was delicious with selections from a full English to scrambled eggs with bacon or smoked salmon, cereals and fruits.
The landlords were very accommodating and friendly and nothing was any trouble. Will definitely stay there again if the needs must

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are as good.

Didn't stay at the hotel just went for lunch as we live locally

Have previously used this establishment on numerous occasions for Sunday lunch. Usually an excellent carvery. But not this time.

having taken our drinks orders we went to the servery.

The vegetables looked as though they had been left under the hot lamps for some time. They looked dry and tired. This was surprising as we were the first customers of the second sitting. Probably they had been left over from the first

we got bsck to our table and had to ask for our drinks

as for the meal our observations turnedout to be correct.

The beef and pork were lovely but the veg was very poor. Parsnips were really tough,broccoli overcooked and yellow,cauliflower cheese you could taste the flour,roast potatoes again tough and the Yorkshire pudding tough and lacking in taste

a very poor meal

the service was also poor. When I went up for some more beef had to wait to be served.

Not a Good experience this time
