Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Popped in here today whilst visiting Oswestry. Very friendly really old fabulous pub. We had meals, the £6 Monday madness meal of sausages,egg and the best chips ever!, proper chips, best I've tasted in years. We also had the curry and chips priced at £8,...again chips fantastic but curry was tasty but not much chicken or veg, lots of liquid so had to use a spoon to eat it. Would certainly visit here again if we come back to the area. Food very reasonably priced and plenty of choice too. Ramp for disabled down alleyway at side door.More

Chose The Fox because it was dog friendly. Absolutely lovely old building, great outside space. Food was amazing and the staff (especially the chef, sorry I didn't get your name but you were amazing!) were so brilliant. Definitely recommended if you're in Oswestry and want...a drink and/or food.More

In august we were staying in some camping pods and went for a drive for food… the fox looked inviting,and was dog friendly. We went in were welcomed by bar staff friendly and was great with my dog. We ordered food the chef was fabulous...(and funny) wore mad color trousers but it definitely went with her sence of humor. Food was AMAZING! Large portions and homemade chips… my dog sat next to us on chair/seating was brought treats by the bar staff and fussed her. Overall a great experience Thank you to staff and the chef with the crazy chef trouser’s making us feel welcomed and amazing food xxMore

We decided to pop in for some food as we were hungry, and were pleasantly surprised with how good the food was. It was a much bigger portion of rotisserie chicken than expected, and it tasted fantastic. My friend got a breakfast bap, and it...was all great value for money too. Definitely recommend for some good tasting food.More

Stopped in here for a drink and to give our toddler lunch. The food service was quick, and the kids' meal was good quality. Staff were friendly. It's a locals pub but not one where everyone stares at you awkwardly if you're from out of...town. Great playlist. Good local beers. Sizeable outer courtyard.More

Late lunch / early tea, nipped in at 3.10 for something to eat, knowing food finished at 3.30. Lady chef came out with couple of titbits and water for the dog, I thought this a lovely touch. We weren’t expecting much, just chicken and chips...so was very much delighted with size of portion, quality of food and cost! We were here for 4 days, ate out everyday and this was the best meal we had! The chef said she was fairly new to the post? Keep her, food was delicious!More

Don't know if I loved or hated this place! It is very very old and has bags of character. It looks like it hasn't been decorated since the 70s ( that's the 1870s ).it was almost full at lunchtime and very welcoming. The beer was...rather good and the food was incredibly cheap but really basic. It could be great if it was run a bit better, and the barmaid didn't disappear to serve food halfway through my order. We ordered breakfast baps to be quick as we had a bus to catch and were told it was a 30 min wait, 50 mins later, I had to ask for them at the kitchen door. They could make more of the place easily.More
