Over the next two years we are hunting out "new to us" places to eat, each month one couple picks a destination within an hour's drive from home and keeps it secret from the other couple. The village/town has to begin with the next letter of the alphabet, last night was "C" and our friends chose Coxbench and the Fox... More

Thank you very very much, It was a pleasure welcoming you to the Fox and Hounds and talking to you too, and even more enjoyable knowing we made your evening so special for yourself, partner and friends. Sitting and relaxing, and having a couple of drinks, before, during and after their meal is what we would like everyone to do.... More

I visited today with my husband for lunch after a walk but we were left a little disappointed particularly after reading many positive reviews. Firstly there is no lunch menu (only 5-6 light bites no sandwiches etc) so the food is quite heavy. I ordered fish and chips - the fish was not really tasty and the home made tartare... More

There is always a lunch menu; it's the one you read and because its not to your personal liking is not a reason for your unjustified comments. Because it does not espouse to food factory twizzlers; garlic mushrooms; and scampi or any other number of frozen light bites does not mean you may denigrate its worth. Baguettes are always available... More

We came here after hearing how good the food was from a friend and we weren't disappointed. When we arrived we were told the food is always cooked to order and we could expect a 30 minute wait, which is fine as long as you're told beforehand. We ordered the belly pork and my wife ordered the marinated tofu dish... More

Dear Jane and Andy, We are so very happy that you enjoyed your lunch with us on Saturday. It was the second winter season menu, which had only started that week, and although we cook all the new dishes, and experiment with presentation before we start to serve them it's always fantastic when they are received with such pleasure by...

We went as a family to the fox and hounds in coxbench. We had visited as a family several times before and always had a great experience. Due to us going on Boxing Day, we had been asked to pre order and pay a £10 deposit per person which we were more than happy to do. We were seated at... More

We had a lovely lunch, the staff were helpful and friendly. My fellow diners had the roast turkey which was plentiful and succulent with perfectly cooked vegetables (the roast potatoes were the best ever). I had the mango and tomato curry which, as a non meat eater, made a welcome change from the usual run of the mill veggie offerings... More

We are a welcoming Country Pub with dining; serving real homemade food, everything from a British classic Homemade short-crust pastry pie thru our juicy but crispy roasted belly pork, to wild venison and seasonal game. We cook everything to order; yes really, our pie goes in the oven and we cook your pastry there and then so its crispy and golden when it is served at your table; your Sea Bass is lightly pan fried so its crispy but succulent and your lamb rump is cooked and rested to allow it to relax and be luscious and tender. On Sundays we serve a traditional Sunday British Roast. We don't just serve food; we have a reserved bar area in the evening so you can sit and chat with a pint or two of our great cask ale, share a bottle of wine or have a coffee relaxing with your family, friends or lover, What could be more enjoyable!
