Would recommend the only thing that spoilt it was the young children running around Have to say the tables were packed in and took a lot of negotiating around then with drinks but the meal was very good. Excellent choice available Would go again perhaps would be better with a family and couples section but think I'm showing my age... More

Went on Sunday for the carvery. Lovely clean pub and friendly staff. Not keen on ordering drinks at one bar then food at another. The food was gorgeous and plentiful. Even my fussy daughter enjoyed it so it must have been good. Did not try a dessert as we were full from our mains. Will defo be going back again.

Dropped in with my husband for a Sunday lunch. Good food and nice location! For my opinion the negative point it's just one.. they have separate bars witch means you have to go for a drink and pay there and if you want some food as well you have to order at a different zone and it's a bit confused...

Visited The Fox last night for dinner and to have a nosey at the refurbishment and I have to say I am very impressed. The refurbishment is fantastic, extremely classy and modern but keeping the homely feel that attracts everyone and the food was as delicious (if not more so) as always. Thank you for another lovely experience

The restaurant is very nice and looks very cosy. I had the hunters chicken, which was very nice. As it was my... More

Returning to the Fox House following the new refurbishment was a delight. It has been tastefully renovated and is stylish and modern yet retains the traditional atmosphere and charm. The toilets too have been modernised and are very chic. The Early Bird Blackboard menu which changes daily is served in the bar, one course £5.95, 2 courses £9.95, 3 courses... More

Went for a late afternoon lunch with wife and two friends. We booked a table though we were told at 3pm the place would be quiet. It was . Plenty of seating with just a handful of diners. The place has just had a refurb so everything is nice and clean. The menu is wide ranging and you eat in... More

We went on Sunday for lunch 8 family members to celebrate 3 birthdays. The food was very good, everyone enjoyed as we have on previous visits. The service was good and the food ordering is well organised, by a efficient young lady. We will be back again.
