We'd booked for 5 for Sunday lunch and had tried all week to call to reconfirmed and sort out timings - the phone just kept ringing. A bit of Googling at the weekend seemed to show their website was down and today I've seen from Facebook that the pub's closed - a real shame it served great food with a... More

The roast dinner here is the best in Wiltshire! Though a mid week meal is equally as beautiful Lovely hand made touches such as macaroons and fudge instead of after eight mints with the bill ❤️

We go here about once a month for dinner and we've never been disappointed. The food has always been really nice. We like to go a little earlier in the evening as it's a popular place and can get really busy.

"I recently visited The Fox for a family birthday meal, and we are a party of approx. 20 people. Myself and my partner both ordered the beef, as the menu said the meat comes a shared platter type thing between two. When the whole table was served and the veg/potatoes were going cold, we still did not have our meat... More

Friends had raved about The Fox so we thought we'd try it... Lovely pub, very organised, very welcoming, nice wine list and the food was very nice. The roast lamb was very tasty indeed. If I were to improve things I would have chosen more seasonal greens or roots for the veg on the roast. I would have loved some... More

Superb Bavette Steak! Not one of the most popular steak cuts in this country but treated well is a delight and a change from the usual rib eye/sirloin/rump. Visited many times but only for lunch, delicious food, great menu of British classics, comfort food and quality bistro choices. Service was friendly and efficient as always. Don't ever change.

We go to The Fox for a treat but tonight it didn't feel like it. I'm not sure what was missing but atmosphere felt different. I ordered a glass of prosecco but it was a little flat, I know, I should have returned it. Our starter arrived which was very nice but it was a long wait until the main... More

We went last night with friends. I was completely blown away by the food.the staff.the atmosphere. Everything was just wonderful I had heritage tomatoes..just so beautifully tasty. The whitebait was also had..as was the terrine and the carpaccio of beef. No complaints at all and 100% clean plates. As a veggie there was a choice..i chose gnocchi..in an amaretto sauce..completely... More

We popped in on the off chance last Thursday. Got a good table; the service was brilliant and the food was delicious. It's good to when the staff are passionate about the produce they use and know their way around the wine list. Really lovely night and we will definitely be going back.

Really nice atmosphere in this pub, staff were great. Another good sized garden and lovely interior. The cocktails were made with care and attention which is lovely for an off the beaten track location. Also, randomly the cashew nuts were scrummy! We're heading back this Friday as enjoyed it so much!
