Food and ambience

Location and contact

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

As we were staying across the road we decided to go in for dinner. No driving so expected a compromise but were pleasantly surprised. The food choice is limited which means it is fresh. It is well cooked and served in generous portions. The drink...More
