Just had lunch. Great food, cosy fireplaces in bar, washrooms immaculate. Recommend highly for visitors to the area. Interesting history about the pub and town. Cathedral is a must-see. Parking is good, too.

We stayed here for 2 nights b&b. We were shown to a nice big room with king size bed (very comfy), a big bathroom with bath and a separate walk in shower. The room was heated with under floor heating which was adjustable and made the room feel really cosy. The food on offer was excellent, decent size portions, and...

If your looking for a great couples weekend getaway then look no further than staying at the Fox especially in room 6. The room was beautifully decorated, the staff, service and food (both at breakfast and dinner) was excellent. Thank you to Lyndsey, James, Tom, Ciara and all the rest of the staff for making us keen to re-book soon....

Although they were obviously very busy, absolutely nothing was too much trouble for any of the cheerful and friendly team members. All our requests and concerns were dealt with promptly and efficiently - cannot...

"The Fox has one of the best glutton free menus". That's what my sister visiting from Ireland said. We both had the best prawn cocktail we'd ever tasted, homemade sauce is sooo much nicer. And she was spoilt for choice on starters, mains and desserts too. I was meeting family members and we are into trying each other's dishes. They...

I had gone to the Fox Inn to meet up with Family for a "catch up" and enjoy a meal with them. It was over two years since I had last visited the Fox Inn so my memory of that last occasion has blurred somewhat. The staff were friendly and helpful and showed us to our table even though we...

An impromptu lunchtime visit: we were made very welcome. I cannot praise the staff and their service enough. All staff were attentive and friendly. The food was excellent and the dining area felt warm and welcoming. We will definitely return and recommend as a good place to eat in Bury.
