We visited on a very blustery Sunday lunch time and could see the carpark was almost full already. The fox house has recently been closed for refurbishment and they have done a lovely job. The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming. Even though it was busy there were enough staff to help and they were easy to spot in their uniforms.... More

I went to the Fox House earlier this week, just a few days after the venue had reopened after refurbishment. I went with my elderly parents, this was our first visit. We arrived and were pleasantly welcomed by the staff member on reception, the pub had just opened for the day and so we had no problem being seated. We... More

We have visited a few times and the most recent was New Years Day for my mother in law's birthday). Due to a mix up (caused by me, not the restaurant) we hadn't got a table booked and it was extremely busy. However the lovely lady who dealt with us found us a table in the restaurant that we could... More

Beautiful location, big bar/restaurant area. This was our first visit, the food was delicious, the best bar meal I think we've ever had, not the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for, huge portions too. Will be back there very soon!

Called in for a drink with some friends in December. I was driving so I asked for a pint of lime and soda. The same drink at other establishments I have visited (Jacobs Well, Honley & Royal Oak, Upperthong) charge 85p and £1.00 respectively. Cost at the Fox House was a whapping £1.90.

Thank Tradders
