We were a party of 8 and went for the New Year celebration dinner. Warmly welcomed upon arrival, shown to the table and allowed us sufficient time to engage in table conversation over a nice complimentary drink. The menu was a special and we all knew what was on offer. The quality, presentation and professional service was simply outstanding. The... More

We are new to the area and stumbled on The Fox via Trip Advisor. Believe the reviews.... both the food and staff deserve the accolades you see here. We enjoyed the Christmas menu- my partner's fish and chips were some of the best anywhere and I enjoyed my Steak and Venison pie very much. The garden is great and I... More

Good service on a very busy Sunday. The roast dinner is a big plate of food with huge selection of veg. If you want a real blow out the starters and puds are equally as good. Choice of beers and wines are good. All in all a good visit. The only comment is maybe a little more gravy but as... More

Plenty of car parking on site but difficult to find though worthwhile as food and friendliness were excellent. We stopped off for lunch on our way to Southampton and were pleased with our choice. The food was outstanding and I wish it were nearer to London as I would certainly be going back. The owner and staff were very friendly... More

My husband and I recently visited to enjoys birthday lunch. Food was delicious, husband enjoyed the haddock and chips and I enjoyed the stuff chicken. The only downside was the potatos with mine, think it was supposed to be a dauphinois however it was very mushy and full of onion so left that. All in all great visit and would... More

Hi, Thank you for your very kind review and glad you enjoyed your lunch. The potato was in fact lyonnaise but we also have Dauphinoisse on the menu and would have been happy to change it. More

We went for dinner on a weekday. Quality is excellent and atmosphere is of a fine restaurant. Everything is home made. Waiting time could be an issue on busy times, but that is the price for the quality.

The Fox has two dining areas, one more formal and the other in the bar which also extends to the garden. This is a great pub during the summer. There's a small play area for the children in sight of the tables so parents can relax and dogs are welcome in the garden. The pub food is good and there's... More
