“Excellent!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

After having had a very unpleasant experience at a Norfolk pub with B&B attached (see my review of The Crown at Dickleburgh) we were dubious about trying The Fox Inn but we needn't have worried. We had an excellent, peaceful stay in a lovely village, the staff were welcoming and efficient, the food and drink was first class. Our room was clean and well furnished with a good size bathroom. We shall certainly be returning.

Friendly greeting at the bar, shown to the room, had to ask about wifi and breakfast. The room is very clean and spacious same as the bathroom. The bed is very comfortable, the room has it's own air conditioning unit and comes with your continental breakfast In the room you can have a cooked breakfast for an extra 7pounds but do not start until 8:30.
The shower is nice and powerful.
The only things that let it down is the slow wifi, the curtains let in the light and the light has an emergency green light inside which is quite bright at night.

Myself, my wife and son visited this stunning pub during the may day weekebd where the pub was holding a may day festival.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and the pub has a very friendly feel.

We stayed for dinner which was amazing i can highly recommend the cajun spiced chicken - it was lush!

a visit to this village pub is a must ans i will most certainly be returning

Stayed whilst on business, very good value B&B in lovely quiet village setting.
Rooms available in court yard setting at rear of pub, nice grounds & gardens for outside seating.
Our en suite room was spacious & attractively furnished with good quality pine furniture, the bedding was bright & modern. The ensuite was also large, very clean with a good supply of toiletries, & had a nice strong shower.
There was a fridge with fresh milk & continental breakfast ready for the following morning & nice flat screen TV.
We enjoyed a very pleasant meal in the pub, food was from a wide range of items on the menu, was of good quality and reasonably priced as was the wine.
We decided to have the optional cooked breakfast for which we paid a small supplement , again this was taken in the pub, was plentiful & well prepared.
Will definitely return if same circumstances arise, only 2 small things to mention, our tap fitting was loose & needs to be fixed & a bath mat would have been helpful in the en suite as it had a tiled floor, other than that everything was perfect.
Thank you,

Absolutely wonderful!
I have been staying here for several weeks whilst working in the area. There are twelve chalet-style rooms in a courtyard affair behind the pub restaurant. There is plenty of parking, the rooms are clean and well equipped, powerful showers, comfy beds and a fridge to house your continental breakfast.
I have never bothered having the cooked breakfast, but if it is anything like the evening meals, it would be fantastic. There is plenty on the menu, specials board and also fixed price menu too, all cooked to perfection. Staff and locals are friendly.
It's a brilliant location, no traffic noise and you wake up to bird song. There are a few footpaths around if you fancy a walk.
Mobile phone signal on O2 and vodaphone (don't know about others) is fine in the area, but not for internet. There is also wifi at The Fox, although it isn't the fastest, you can get done what you need to.

Really enjoyed the stay, modern rooms and very quiet, very clean bathrooms, comfortable bed and one of the best breakfasts ever!!!!
The owners certainly know how to look after the guests and 10/10 from us.

Glad to be back to eat at The Fox Inn last Saturday night with two friends, this time after only a few months and we were determined to not have the starters to enable us to have the deserts after our main meals (which are very filling).
As before we had ample portions of food for our main courses and thoroughly enjoyed our deserts all of which were well cooked & piping hot.
The staff are always keen to please and it’s never a problem to vary the menu according to taste and best of all the prices are very competitive which is just another reason to keep coming back.
All four of us agreed that we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the pub to anyone for first class food & service in a traditional village pub.
