Lovely dining space and very friendly staff. Food was a bit of a let down. Quite disappointed when it arrived. Not as good as when I visited before.

We've been going here several times a year since it opened and never had a bad experience. The service is always perfect and the food is amazing. The menu has core dishes that don't change and then a selection that changes regularly so there is always a great choice. Its a 40 mile round trip for us to eat here... More

I had been receiving recommendations from locals in the Sudbury area over my last few visits and so I thought I would try it. As soon as I drove into the car park I recognised that I had previously visited some 6 years ago and had a great meal. This time I had the chicken bacon and crouton salad to... More

I took my mother here for lunch on a Saturday, lots of space inside light and airy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had food from the specials board. Cheese & chive & tomato omelette with potatoes and salad. It was very filling well presented and tasted delicious, the salad on the side was lovely with a light... More

Visited the fox with friends some months since I last visited. The welcome was friendly and helpful as always. The menu choice didn't disappoint. We chose Roast Chicken with rosti and vegetables, The Fox Rump Burger served with fresh tomato sauce and chips, grilled haddock fillet with tomato crust and vegetables and chips. Lovely food, great quality and flavour. WORTH... More

The food here is fabulous. Excellent wine choices. As you can't book a table it's best to go when not to busy. After the main meal rush would be best as there is usually a table to be had by then. You have to write out your own food order and you are gives a wooden spoon for your table... More

We visited the Bulmer Fox last night as it's one of our favourite restaurants. Once again it didn't disappoint. I'm always happy to go out of my comfort zone with the food there as whatever I have had has been just wonderful. The flavours, portion sizes and presentation are perfect and this is all accompanied by great service and lovely... More

Great service, excellent food, reasonably priced. Very reliable meals when ever you go there. Nice fish dishes and good all round pub-grub.

Bringing together consistently good food, pleasing atmosphere and comfortable service the Fox constitutes an excellent refuge from the working week's frustrations, the randomness of the railways, the waywardness of the political classes, or indeed that minor domestic blip... We are frequent visitors, both as a couple and for family get-togethers. The staff are efficient and friendly - which seems to... More
