Our first visit to the Fox and we were not disappointed. We were made very welcome by pleasant and attentive staff which was the same throughout the evening. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and of a high quality. We both ordered the mixed grill and it came cooked to perfection. Have already booked for the special fish night.

Great place to meet the girls to celebrate a birthday - informal and you are left to enjoy yourself. Food was great. I had the calves liver with mash AND chips - because I can. If I was going to be picky I'd say my liver was slightly overcooked for me - but others would have loved it not pink.... More

Good Sunday roast, beef was great, lamb shank, traditional fish and chips and the pork all got top marks. Desserts were meringue, cheesecake and liquor coffee.

Four of us enjoyed a really first class Sunday roast lunch at The Fox. The best I have ever enjoyed at any restaurant anywhere. As well as superb food, the service and the ambience were also excellent. We will certainly go there again.

After coming to the fox inn maybe some 5 years ago I knew the food was good back then so took the risk to book a table for my anniversary meal with my partner! This proved to be a very good choice!! The place is simply amazing. The service and food is outstanding, you are made to feel they actually... More

Held across two evenings every month, the Billingsgate Fish Night offers an extensive - but affordable - fish menu, ranging from lobster and other shellfish to fresh fish such as sea bass or Dover sole. If you are taking someone who's not so keen on fish, there are some meat/veggie options too.

I have been to The Fox Inn a few times now and it has always been very good. Starters of classic prawn cocktail and home made mushroom soup were of a high standard. My fillet steak was as close to perfect as I have had although my Wife's chicken was quite overpowered with the spices, not unpleasant but everything was... More

Went here with my mum for dinner on a Friday night. Service was great and the food was really tasty. I had duck which was cooked pink just how I like it with just the right amount of potatoes and veg. My mum had monk fish which was a big portion and looked great. Only given 4 stars as the... More
