Fifteens at the Fox opened November 2013,its a good pub with humble food, choose to eat in a dining area or a more relaxed meal in the pub surrounded by real fires, real ales and real people.The menu is fresh to order, no pinging! A well balanced selection of mains, steaks and lighter bites. Sunday Lunch is a winner! We have employed over 20 local characters to work at Fifteens at the Fox, who together with the most amazing customers from and around the village we have a most amazing atmosphereFifteens at the Fox is the sort of place you wont want to leave, its cosy eccentric decor, chilled out music and warm welcome, incites you one have one more for the road
