This place is ideal for visiting the Cotswolds. We booked on a two night voucher, but upon ringing the proprietor was a little hesitant as to whether there were rooms available on this deal for the particular date I wanted, no problem we had an upgrade for £30 per night, it was for my birthday so I didn't mind.
On arrival we were taken to our room by a gentleman called Paul who I surmised was the owner/proprietor. Our room was in the mews block, very nice and clean with everything one would expect in a B & B with a quite pleasant view. However, I was at a loss to see where he could justify a £30 p.n. increase. The steps up to it were extremely dirty and the whole outside of the Inn seemed sadly in neglect. We had Sunday lunch which was very average and noticed the menu very overpriced not to mention the house wine. Breakfast the next day another average breakfast, served to us by Paul, who gave us the impression he would much rather be elsewhere than serving our breakfast. The following morning in comparison was served to us by a cheerful, happy young lady who really made us feel welcome for the first time.
Overall this place has a delightful position by the river but I would suggest the owners try and spend a little more time on tidying and cleaning up the outside area, where after all most of their customers will spend their time weather permitting. This sort of work does not cost money to do but time and effort it really is a disgrace with litter, cig butts and we had a pile of empty boxes at the bottom of our steps which could have been discarded of immediately. Also try moving all the advertising boards leaning up against the wall. With this in mind The Fox Inn may deserve the type of price range they are charging.

Thank-you for your comments which will be addressed.I would just like to say that this stay came on the back of the wettest winter in history(could not even walk in garden) and Cheltenham race week-mass of people - not too much control -often untidy afterwards -road signs for week still about-100 hour plus previously-loads of work to catch up on-back to the normality of trying to make ends meet in a very below average trading winter(20 years here)-only way to sell rooms now in internet age in winter is with massive discounts-actually dont mind that but hope you might not then be subjected to an online scrutiny from what i perceive as unjustifyable on mass discount rates but i will spend a few hundred pound this week to take another 10 hugely discounted rooms to make ends meet.I am sorry if i was perceived as not paying enough attention to my guests in that morning but truly this is my favourite part of the day as i do usually have time to talk to people without the phone ringing,a staffing question or issue, or an instant decision to make. I truly want people to love what i am trying to achieve in making a real 21st century proper riverside pub ,great rooms ,great food and drink but still being a real social pub and not just a restaurant in pub walls.Sorry again but i hope this gives you some perception of both sides of the argument-Paul

The rooms have been refurbished and are really well done. I'd imagine in the summer it's a lovely location for a drink by the river. We found the food over priced for what was pub grub. The eating areas and stairs needed a good clean. The outside areas were dirty with, discarded bottles, cans, cigarette butts and vomit.

We booked this through a promotion with Jack FM and are local to Oxford. Even though the fox inn was only 40 min down the road its amazing location made it feel like a million miles away. The location is stunning and we went for a nice log walk when we arrived, the village near by is beautiful and a great place for dog walks. We had a bite to eat even though food had officially stopped being served and found all the staff really friendly laid back extremely accommodating. We booked in for dinner and loved the food as well as the atmosphere. The room had a great view of the river, was spotless and the breakfast in the morning tasted amazing. Some reviews before complained about the price of this pub but we thought a three course dinner- with drinks- plus our lunch and drinks in the day for £100 was spot on. We will be back in the summer without a doubt!

Lovely setting. Would like to go back in better weather. Superb bacon & sausage for breakfast. Pleasant evening meal with choices a little out of the ordinary eg pigeon, game pie. If you are walking a dog in the evening it would be beneficial to take a torch!

Arrived without a booking for lunch after a muddy walk! We were made very welcome-real fire. What a joy to find a real pub where you are immediately made to feel at home. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 small children. The landlady came across immediately to suggest what meals they could do for the children. The main menu had an excellent choice and there was a special board as well. The venison liver was superb and the lamb knuckle a meal we would return for. The children loved their meals. Highly recommend this pub.
