Staff very friendly and welcoming, we hadn't booked on what seemed to be a busy night but were accommodated, the food was reasonably priced and very good.

The Fox at Tytherington lived up to its recommendations. We were a party of 4 and enjoyed a very good lunch. My Thai prawn curry was hot - just how I like it! The steak and ale pie was popular and ham came smothered in...More

The food here was very nice, excellent Thai curry sauce. The environment is a little sterile as it's an old pub converted to a restaurant without a bar and needs some attention to detail in the furnishings. Gets busy so you'll need to book.

The Fox is an enigma. Some of the food was very good, locally sourced beef and very tasty. But it sits alongside cheap frozen food, rapidly dished up as starters that are over priced, small in size and sadly lacking in flavour. Not sure why...More

For over a decade The Fox has enjoyed extraordinary success as one of the West Country’s premier pub/eateries. Following a major refurbishment, the venue now hosts a visionary new drinking and dining experience we guarantee you won’t find anywhere else. So come on in and take a seat. We’ve got comfy sofas around a fire for those winter months and a walled garden for summer. There are enough tables and chairs for everyone and we promise zero queueing time at the bar… because there is no bar. Instead, we have our new feature Beer Wall – an inspiring choice of Boutique Beers, craft ales and ciders, spirits and wines for you to explore. Take it easy for the whole time you’re with us and enjoy the many great experiences The Fox has to offer.
