Heard a lot about this place, and decided to visit bank holiday weekend. its set in such a beautiful location. As soon as we approached we realised its obviously very popular as we had to park on the road side. There was plenty of choice on the menu. However we all decided to go for carvery, which was excellent, they even told us which farm the meat was from, which impressed my dad. Desserts were delicious,we had sherry trifle and sticky toffee pudding...mmmm. It was well worth of visiting this place and we defenatley will be coming back!

Visited the Foxhouse on a busy Saturday night, car park was full but the staff managed to accommodate us with a table in the restaurant area.
We ordered from the specials board and the bar meal menu (which was extensive) the meals arrived promptly and presented to a high standard we ordered the beef stroganoff which was excellent and the meat of good quality, my partner ordered the farm house grill another great choice! The staff were efficient And polite. We had a conversation with the manageress who explained that the pub was family owned and has been established for over 25 years, which was good to know it wasnt part of a chain which is hard to come by these days.
Overall a great experience and u will be seeing us again, thanks.

Visited the Foxhouse on a bleak Wednesday night, the staff were very welcoming and the pub it's self was warm and well presented.

There were 4 of us, we chose to order the mixed grill with the rump steak, 8oz fillet steak, and 2 lasagna. Our choices prevailed the food was cooked to perfection and the portions were generous!

The staff were extremely friendly and tended to every meal, the chef even served me a coffee after the meal.

Would recommend this eatery to anyone who loves food.

Thanks for the hard work!!!!!

We will not be returning a long wait for the food then food over cooked we were offered free drinks which was good but really shouldn't have needed to. Shame as I heard it was good. I obviously have high standards. My advice is go to the Wills ' o' Nats in Meltham everything about it is better
