We have visited this pub a few times, but now it is back in the hands of Sid & his wife it is going from strength to strength. We stayed in the touring caravan site over the road (for easy staggering distance) and booked a table for New Years Eve. Nothing short of brilliant is the best way to describe... More

Spent a lovely evening in the company of the staff and patrons at The Fox Inn. The meal was fabulous, the service was second to none and the pub itself was just so friendly and atmospheric. I can't recommend it highly enough. If you are in the area and looking for a bite to eat, I highly recommend The Fox... More

We stayed near the fox inn for the last week of the school holidays and went to the fox on two different nights, both times were flawless. The food was lovely and the service was excellent! The prices were good and there was a good selection too. We will definitely be returning when we are staying there again.

We used this place for ourselves and visitors for years then it went off the boil...... Now it's bubbling again, great food relaxed friendly and great to see. The food is always good and local at a fair price, good beer and great views on clear days

Lovely county pub with fantastic food. Lovely homemade soup, and we had duck and cod fillet for mains. Desserts were also very good. Great service from staff who couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended and will be visiting again!

Having eaten at this establishment in the past whilst under different management and other pubs locally, I was not expecting anything other than standard pub fair. However I was wrong, very wrong! We were a family of 7 and everyone's meal was excellent (great ingredients, cooked with skill and understanding) and very reasonably priced. In addition to the great food... More

The Fox Inn is on its way up - new owners are working extremely hard to get this place a name for itself. Stayed over on Saturday night - bed was massive, lovely fresh clean linen and lovely soap, shower gel and shampoo/conditioner (the personal touches you remember). Dinner was lovely - portions are huge and sadly never even got... More
