We called in here as it was close to where we were staying and we were hungry!. The service was excellent, the place was very busy both with people eating meals and drinking at the bar but that didnt detract from the service the waiting staff gave or the quality of the food served.
I did find it a tad expensive as although very good we have had better for the same price of less but in saying that the food was of good quality.
I would suggest booking in advance as there were very few tables that were available most were reserved.

We went on a Tuesday evening, was busy as usual, excellent food and service as usual, this is one of my favourite pubs in the area, never once have we had a bad meal or service and we visit regularly. Highly recommend to anyone.

Our last visit was about 4 years ago so after yesterdays visit (15 Oct 20130 ) very pleased to report 'as good as ever probably even better'. Fabulous friendly welcome, excellent menu choices,superb food and great service. Couldn't fault a single thing , if you could score out of 10 it has got to be 11! The Carpark was full at 19:45hrs on a Tuesday evening - got to be a good sign ! Looking forward to the opening of B & P's latest venue The Inn at Shipley (Ex Thornescroft Restaurant) which is located closer to us so can visit more frequently.

The Fox is a delight to visit for a meal - lovely decorated and set out, good beer and excellent food.
To be fair this visit fell below the usual extremely high standards. Had a Bubble & Squeak starter that had no cabbage and definitely hadn't seen the frying pan - in fact it was a plate of boiled veg - strange but still nice! Had steak for the main course and that was beautifully cooked - excellent. Would highly recommend for a quality meal in a lovely country pub.

If you are not in a tearing hurry and happy to sit in a buzzing environment then this is the restaurant for you. It is cheerful, they make you welcome and the food is good. It is also not too expensive but it has been busy every time I have eaten there.
You go to the bar to order your food and the tables are numbered so they know where to delivery it.
