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.

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.
