“First visit and will definitely be back!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We tried to book at several other places last night with no success so this wasn't our first choice but glad we did end up here.

We started off with a drink and some olives at the bar and moved onto a table later on, the staff were attentive without being overbearing and the food was absolutely lovely.

Very much enjoyed our meal here and will definitely be back in the future.

“Bank Holiday Lunch”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

I got there 10 minutes before the end of service and they were very helpful. The pub is very pleasant with a good selection of drinks and the quality of the food was excellent.

“Fair prices - 3.5 out of five”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I went for lunch at the Bulmer Fox and was impressed by the surroundings - quirky, comfortable design makes you instantly feel at ease.

The wide variety of soft drinks on offer made a pleasant change too.

Unfortunately the menu was not quite as diverse, with limited vegetarian options - a lentil cottage pie or lasange on the main menu - felt a bit heavy given the spring weather.

The staff were friendly, and the service good. I felt that it was good pub grub and if I could have given it a 'good' 3.5 out of five I would have done.

Also worth noting that it does not accept bookings.

“Arrive early!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

This is one of my favourite eateries. Henry and staff do their utmost to provide a relaxed and valued experience. Good portion sizes,varied and changing menu choice with some old favourites retained. 2 and 3 courses fixed price can be chopped and changed with a la carte to provide for any choice. All in all The Fox ticks all boxes....just read all of these reviews to confirm..We visit at least once a month and have done so for some years with never a cause for complaint and believe me I have no hesitation in doing so anywhere I travel in the UK. No booking available and yes you order at bar and yes the staff wear jeans..if you want overpriced food and starchy service with inflated prices try Baumanns Brasserie in Coggeshall....Otherwise the loyalty of the Foxs patrons tells its own story..

“Good food, friendly service.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

We have eaten here several times and really can't fault either the food or the service. Saturday lunch was very good: confit duck leg, dauphinoise potatoes, red cabbage and jus, plus a good, thick beef burger, (served without a bun, which was a nice touch) home made chunky tomato sauce, garlic butter, fries and awesome onion rings. Deserts were apple tart tatin with cream and a wickedly sinful cointreau chocolate pot served with delicious homemade orange and almond biscuits. I wish I could buy those biscuits somewhere, or at least get the recipe! Will definitely be returning very soon.
