Went to The Fox with friends for dinner. I had hake in batter and it was the best piece of fried fish I have had in a long time - moist but not over cooked. Service was friendly and prompt. Waiting time for food was good considering the pub was busy. I would say our main course arrived in probably... More

You'll see from my other reviews that I am quite fussy. I like good service, a pleasant environment, great atmosphere and of course from a pub, hearty food and drink. We were staying locally for three nights and stumbled across this pub, literally. It's in a quaint little hamlet blessed with the friendliest most welcoming locals you could ever hope... More

We've made the trek out to the Fox a few times now and the welcome has always been warm. What more could you wish for? A good pint, smiling faces and food should you wish. A real taste of a traditional British pub...love it.

What a great find, this is the quintessential English rural village pub hidden away in the valley. It is well signposted and the pub stands proud offset from the road. The smell of an open fire, great ale and a warm welcome greets you as you come in through the door. Lovely atmosphere and we were accommodated even though we... More

The Fox is a character village pub with a good selection of beers and great food be it for a meal for 2 or a large get together. The pub has a great atmosphere and very welcoming, helpful and friendly staff.

We visit here several time's in the year for meal, usually when we are entertaining guests over a week end. Always have a good meal in nice surroundings. Not cheap but is good value and free house so always good real ales on offer! Nice location in the Dorset countryside with some interesting walks nearby.

Wide menu, good service. Loads of ambience. Plenty of parking. The narrow roads only add to the charm of the visit.

I went to the fox for the first time to eat. They have a meal and a pint night Wednesday and Thursday evening. The meals vary every month so one month curry and a pint another pie and a pint you get the idea. On this occasion it was curry and a pint for a tenner. They are all a... More
