Visited using a 3 night KGB deal. The pub is well situated in the middle of the village close to shops, other pubs, restaurants and supermarket, and has ample parking. We were greeted on arrival by a very helpful lady who was working behind the bar. She booked us in and showed us up to our first floor room which was very spacious, had a good sized comfortable bed and a size-able en suite bathroom, and has tea and coffee making facilities. The pub does not serve evening meals so we were advised that the Kings Head around the corner did and the meals are reasonably priced.A good tip as the other pubs and restaurants in the village are a bit pricey. English breakfast was a substantial plateful that set you up for the day. They liked you to say in advance the time you were likely to want breakfast as the lady who cooks it also takes your orders, clears the tables and serves it along with the drinks and toast. If you breakfast at the same time as others then there can be a bit of a delay. The pub itself serves Hook Norton cask ales and has the usual mix of pub characters. The barmaid who greeted us originally was very helpful in suggesting how best to get into Oxford and other places worth visiting. Thanks very much to her. On the whole we enjoyed our visit to the Fox as a bargain break but if you are picky you will see that a lick of paint on skirting boards and walls would not go amiss and maybe it might have been nice if a vacuum cleaner had been run over the bedroom carpets during our stay. Oh and finally the town clock is just outside the pub windows and chimes on the hour and every half hour all through the night and day. If you are a light sleeper it may disturb you but we found that a few pints before going to bed sorted that problem out.
