Starters were lovely. We ordered the beef and ale pie for a main course. They were all over cooked, my pastry was so hard it was almost impossible to cut through, and totally inedible, also very salty. The veg were undercooked. So altogether a rather disappointing meal. Can't fault the service and atmosphere. Also they didn't charge for my main... More

Hoping to make my Mum's 88th birthday special we had pre-booked a table for lunch. On arrival we were placed between 2 doors - one to the bar and one to the outside so it felt like being in a draughty corridor. During the meal i had to get up 11 times to close the outside door as there was... More

We have heard so many good things about The Fox, North Waltham, so it was time to try for ourselves. Excellent service & atmosphere. We were a party of four. We all chose different starters, each was beautifully presented & tasted wonderful. Three of us chose the Haunch of Venison, again it tasted wonderful but sadly was slightly tough. Our... More

I recently ate lunch at The Fox as part of a large party. The menu range and specials was varied. The group chose a variety of starters, mains and starters and all were generous and delicious. Can particularly recommend the mussels. Service was polite and efficient even with a busy dining room. Would certainly eat here if in the vicinity... More

Four of us had supper here on Tuesday 20 February. We have eaten here many times when we lived nearby and on this occasion stopped here on our travels. Everything is as it should be. There is a relatively short menu, every item carefully chosen. All our food was beautifully presented and cooked. Russell, the manager has a great way... More

For Sunday lunch with a few friends this was excellent. The food was good. I had the Lamb shank, which was a bit bland to my taste, but still lovely, My husband had the Beef Pie, and ha claimed it was the best Beef Pie he has ever got. All veg. served were perfectly cooked. Desert was Sticky Pudding for... More

Due to my wife being ill on Valentine's Day I booked a table for the following Saturday. We have been coming here for a few years now but tend to come for special occasions. The food here is exceptional and one of very few restaurants I can claim never to have had a bad meal. Service is always good and... More

Booked at different restaurant (stupidly) and was turned away upon arrival as they double booked! So we popped into The Fox and asked Russell if he could fit us in...no problem...we had the best meal we have had in a long time..freshly cooked, full of flavour and the cheese soufflé is to die for. Beautifully decorated with balloons and red... More

Stopped in here for a few hours on a Friday evening with my wife. It was nice and cosy inside with the log burner providing some welcome heat. We stayed for the bar food which was very tasty and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely return here and will probably try the restaurant area as well... More
