Great place for just a drink or eating. The food and staff are always great. The only thing missing is a children's play are there is nothing for children to do. There is a small area of grass near the disabled parking which would be ideal for a playground. We have our grandson a lot during the day and look... More

We ordered four meals, fish and chips, wagu burger, grilled chicken, Caesar salad. The wagu burger was sent back as it was burned. The fish looked... More

Really like it here. Perfect for when the family have a get together. It's certainly sits at the high end of the pub food scale. Lovely surroundings with outdoor dining if the weather allows.

Always a warm welcome. Excellent value for money. The food is good to a high standard, and presented well. I love the on line booking system. Your vegetables are always cooked very nicely, not over cooked or under cooked. Well done it is always a pleasure for me and my partner to visit you at The Stretton Fox. Ian Hughes

The pub itself is lovely, with a really relaxed atmosphere. There's a decent drinks selection. The food is a typical pub selection, with good Sunday roasts and a wide variety of desserts. (the chicken pie is excellent)

Stumbled across this pub as we were staying at The Park Royal and just a short walk away. I have to say that the food and service was excellent from start up finish.

Called in here for the lovely sunshine Sunday we had last week to take advantage of their very pleasant outdoor seating area. The three of us hadn't planned on dinner but instead meeting for drinks in the sun. As we stayed longer than planned we ended up ordering food individually, me first. The place was very busy and it seemed... More

The Stretton Fox is located just off the M56 junction 10, and provides a warm, cozy and inviting atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy a good meal with friends and family. We are situated in the centre of several dog walkers routes and are happy to offer respite to owners and dogs alike, although we do ask that dogs stay in the Old Barn bar area. When you come in, please order a drink at the bar and the staff will be more than happy to find you a seat, we look forward to seeing you soon and hope you enjoy your stay with us!
