Stumbled on this place whilst on a drive. Went in to have a drink and ended up staying for Sunday lunch. Food was amazing. Lydia the chef is turning out great, hearty home cooked meals. I looked around and every plate was going back to the kitchen clean. In fact, I we'd both not been brought up better, I'd have... More

Food, drink and atmosphere were all spot on for a lovely Sunday pub lunch after a long walk from Bath to Bradford-On-Avon along the canal. The landlord/lady generously catered for the dogs by giving them biscuits, they came and asked after the food for every course, supplied drinks regularly and sat and chat once we had finished our meal. Having... More

An excellent rustic venue which suited our requirements perfectly, lovely food and drink, dog friendly and warm fires. After lunch, 8 of us retired from the restaurant or lounge to a 'cozy' but private side room for a business meeting. An excellent and relaxing setting. Just what the doctor ordered!

Couldn't have been more welcoming to four muddy walkers and their three muddy dogs, for a perfect Sunday roast lunch. It's a small country pub that serves great, well cooked, pub food, without trying to be a gastro-pub. The publican and waitresses couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. A great find....

Visited here on way back from long walk, great soup and fabulous Sausage and Mash. There were a lot of us and we hadn't pre ordered, sow we had to wait as everything is fresh- so worth the wait. The risotto was so tasty and the crunchy salad brilliant. Guest beers good as well, great log fires and you can... More

A joyous alternative to the all too frequent gastro pub. A traditional pub where the landlord gives the same warm welcome to first time visitors as to the regulars. From opening the door, it is clear the intention is for everyone to have a gratifying visit; walking up from Bradford-upon-Avon, there was a choice of either sitting in the public... More

We hired the Dog & Fox for my husband's 40th birthday party. The room was perfect and service fantastic. Plenty of room for our band to set up and play. Everyone enjoyed the atmosphere. Would recommend.

Real coal fire in one room. Inglenook with wood burner and sofa's in another. Lovely old country kitchen table can seat ten with the days papers if the banter is lacking. Amazingly warm welcome from genial hosts and to top it all a lovely pint of Bath ales "Gem" amongst others including real cider. Great after a dog walk (dogs... More

The Dog and Fox has been my local for many years and it is one of the very rare breed of pubs which is a genuine English pub of the style that has made the English pub the envy of the world. There are not many pubs that fit this description better than "The Dog". It's just a warm, in... More
