“Fun stay at the Fox”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

My wife and I used a Groupon deal to stay 2 nights at the Fox, Much Wenlock in Shropshire. The room was comfortable, particularly the bed. Despite the age of the hotel the interior design was well done and the state of the decoration was reasonable. Everything worked as it should, the room was clean and we had no cause to complain about the room in any way. The restaurant is well decorated and pleasant with well spaced tables. The full English breakfast was good and served hot. The evening meal service was very good, a high standard of food was served both from the Groupon set menu and from the a la cart. John, the owner/chef has a quirky sense of humour that might upset some sensitive people, but he is very willing to help ensure your stay is as pleasant as possible. Much Wenlock is a very good base for visiting local attractions such as Iron Bridge etc and whilst there visit Ryan's butchers shop for wondeful pies.

Room Tip: We had room 4 at the front, but traffic noise is not a problem as High Street Much Wenlock is not a...

We had a Groupon 2 day break at the Fox with some friends, generally, it was all positive, the offer included a meal on the first night, bed and breakfast. The room was acceptable but needed a bit of updating. The shower was poor and the doors stuck, apart from these minor irritations we had a great time and John was friendly, helpful and jovial.

Room Tip: The family rooms appear more updated

Realy excellent food. Rooms are amazing. John the owner is friendly funny and helpful. There's loads to do in the local area. Two other great pubs in the village. Really enjoyed our stay here! Met another couple of scouses from the Wirral and had a great breakfast chatting to them in the lovely restaurant which is beautifully decorated. Bar man is really friendly too!

stayed at the Fox recently with a groupon voucher and after reading some reveiws that said they felt uncomfortable because they were using the voucher, yes we had a couple of comments but said it was better to have 60% of something rather than 100% of nothing which john agreed. we chatted to john who seemed ok but he did make a few remarks about my accent which i laughed off but did not take offence at, but be warned john some people might be more sensitive than me.
The rooms were very nice, breakfast lovely and we ate in the restaurant and really enjoyed the food, we had the £12.50 menu which had three courses , drinks were reasonablely priced, yes we would stay here again (with or without the voucher)

We ended up staying here because the place we'd originally booked into (Wenlock Edge Inn) had closed down. Luckily we found out before we turned up. There were four of us and we were after 2 rooms. My friend called the owner and he was very accommodating at such late notice, managing to shuffle things around to fit us in. Our rooms were lovely, and the building itself is interesting and nicely decorated. Beds were comfy. We were lucky to find someone so late and it ended up being an excellent stay!

We found ourselves travelling through Shropshire quite late at night on Easter Saturday and on impulse asked for a room at the Fox! We were made very welcome and had a lovely room with much appreciated tea making facilities and a great en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was adequate and we enjoyed our unexpected stay!
