Excellent menu choice and the food tastes excellent too and is well presented. This is fine dining at affordable prices.

We were very happy with our previous visit to The Fox and were looking forward to this visit but it seems to have gone back a bit. It has been decently refurbished (and it really needed it) but this time round the food seemed a bit ordinary and for the vegetarian in our party there was not a good choice... More

Difficult to park (small spaces with poor access) and, as the place was so busy, I expected I might find the food would be better. The beer was excellent and fairly priced and the surroundings were pleasant.

Had fish and chips. £12.95 is a lot of money for frozen fish and chips cooked in not very clean oil. Staff very pleasant though. Had to wait for table in an empty restaurant for some reason. Sea bass ok but no vegetables for £16. Cannot believe that they cannot batter and cook a fresh piece of fish for this... More

We decided to shut the kitchen and hand up the apron for tonight. We phoned and booked a table for 8.15. On arrival we were welcomed and shown to our table but opted to order our drinks at the bar. I was driving so ordered a fruit drink and my husband enjoyed his accidental pint of fox. I enjoyed my... More

My partner and I decided to visit Fox Inn after a long dog walk and were ready for a Sunday lunch feast! The staff couldn't have been more attentive. The atmosphere was family friendly and pleasant. We found out table in the corner by a window, the decor was up to date and fresh. None of the tables were cramped... More

We hadn't been to the Fox since it had changed from being Chef and Brewer, which was frankly awful. We were pleasantly surprised. The interior was really nice, the staff very friendly and attentive and the food pleasant. My husband had the steak burger, which he said was delicious and I had a gluten free pizza. This wasn't very tasty,... More
