Stayed at adjoining hotel so little choice locally. First, this was due to be closed for refurbishment the week after I went, but they already started with the walls semi treated. Not a great environment in which to eat. The service was uninspiring, the food equally do. The lettuce that came with my starter must have been sitting around since... More

Had a lovely meal for my birthday. Sat beside a roaring log fire it was wonderful. The sticky chicken wings & Blacktocks blue cheese fondue were two lovely starters. The hunters chicken & steak for mains were also lovely. The staff are friendly & helpful & the atmosphere is homely & comfortable. Will so. Is it again soon.

Brilliant meal cooked to perfection and a taste explosion. Staff really friendly and happy in their work. A little on the pricey side but well worth it.

Arrived at 12 o'clock on Friday lunchtime. Nice table by log fire. On ordering told there was no rump steak, a bit odd to have such a basic item missing at the start of service. Next table ordered calamari - again none available. Ordered a pint of Doombar - served with a 2cm head as was the next pint ordered... More

Called in at the Walton Fox to break up a journey home, for our evening meal. We were immediately impressed by the menu offered, the small number indicating that everything would be freshly prepared. We chose a steak & mushroom pie and the butternut squash and mushroom tart, preceded by an artisan bread in a dipping olive oil vinegar. The... More
