Since reopening we have been to the Fox a few times, we examined the menu and dismissed it as being far too expensive. It's very tastefully decorated but on each occasion there was only a handful of patrons at the bar, nobody in the restaurant and an eerie quietness, yet the nearby Inn was jumping, if you like peace and...

Visited first time in years - great Sunday roast for two! Staff were attentive and nothing was a problem - bar is cosy and traditional, what you want from a country pub!

Dropped into this pub this evening for dinner. The food was delicious. I had macaroni cheese with chips. This was also served with garlic ciabatta. My husband had the burger with bacon and blue cheese. The meals were really freshly made and the chips were fantastic. We will certainly be back.

The main problem I had with this was the pricing, £9.95 for a bowl of macaroni is extremely expensive... More

We spoke to Joe in the stables restaurant who very happily accommodated all 6 of us in a very busy restaurant. We were quickly provided with menus and... More

Bar and waiting staff were lovely, some of the management staff were be speaking down to floor staff in front of customers but it was Mother's Day so they may have been a little more stressed than usual. Otherwise they were doing their job properly and did not need to be dismissed. Food was fantastic, will be back for the... More
