Visited pub along with another couple on my birthday. Table for 4 reserved without difficulty earlier on the same day. Quite small inside but we were comfortable with the table. Menu more than adequate and the food served of extremely high standard. Wouldn't hesitate to revisit and indeed look forward to doing so.

Whilst visiting a friend in Wem we decided to eat at The Fox Inn. Our friend had already told us the food was good but we didn't realise how good. The dining area was full so we were told we could sit where we liked and arrange tables to suit if we wanted. Having done this , once a table... More

We needed an evening meal and the fox did not disappoint. My partner had the curry and I had the scampi, both were really good. I think we missed a trick though as a couple opposite us ordered the home made pie which looked delicious. Happy to recommend and would gladly return

Was visiting the area for 1 night and was overwhelming surprised by the food and service here. The food was cooked to a high standard and was reasonably priced....as were the drinks. All of the staff were incredibly friendly and the regulars made us feel welcome. If we ever return we would definately repay The Fox with our custom.

First impressions very male orientated pub but the locals warmed to us very quickly, if you like Pub Food in a decent Pub this is the place for you. My partner and I both... More

Six (4 adults and 2 children) of us had a lovely meal at lunch time on a Saturday. The pub was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Good choice on the menu and plenty of food on the plate. Reasonable prices too. We sat in the dining area, next to the fire and had a lovely, relaxed afternoon.

This is a really great example of everything a friendly local pub should be. It's traditional and cosy, with a really nice, happy atmosphere. The staff & management are all so welcoming and lovely, nothing is too much trouble. The food is very reasonably priced, home cooked and delicious!
