“Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Booked for three people for Sunday lunch to finish off a special weekend. Unfortunately we were slightly later than our booked time but a phone call to alert the restaurant ensured we kept our table. The food was excellent throughout; beautifully served and hot; lovely warm, homemade bread rolls too, really great to dip into the oil and balsamic vinegar, if you can resist the delicious butter! Good sized portions, whitebait very appetising as a "nibble", with the roast pork really tasty - the Yorkshire pudding with it was a surprise, but very welcome! We could not resist the desserts and had three different dishes, all of which were well presented, interesting and above all tasted delicious! In reality, with the generous sizes you could easily have one dessert between two but quite honestly the quality of the food made it very hard to resist the temptation! Service was attentive throughout, we were not rushed at all. Overall, a super experience, with great food and very friendly service. Thank you and we would not hesitate to recommend the Inn. We will return!

“Super little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Stayed for one evening, mid week whilst on business in the area. Very quiet and tucked away. Really super little place though. Sarah is very warm and friendly, the surroundings are excellent and the room was lovely.

The place has the feel of a business where the owners really care. Everything felt of quality and the food was truly excellent. These guys know how to cook, the fish & chips I had for supper were as good as I have ever had anywhere. Breakfast the following morning was of the highest quality also. It really felt like everything was truly home made.

This is the first review I have ever posted on TA, a measure of how nice The Foxham Inn is.

“Excellent Fayre and running-out of new adjectives”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Excellent restaurant in the countryside. Drive through Christian Malford and find the village of Foxham. I am running out of new adjectives to describe the restaurant but the welcome from Sarah makes the travelling from Calne worthwhile, Neil the chef always prepares a wonderful menu and I was spoilt for choice. Roast Sunday lunch was excellent as always and a splendid choice of sweets means I could pick any sweet and know that would be happy. Treat reviews by a nom-de-plume with suspicion and go and make your own mind-up.

“Hard to beat in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

I chose The Foxham Inn based on menu choice, location and other reviews I had read on trip advisor (so thanks to other reviewers).
Four of us went for Sunday lunch to celebrate an anniversary. We chose a variety of starters, mains and desserts - we could not fault a thing. The food was superb with an interesting menu, including a good selection for vegetarians. It's great to go somewhere for Sunday lunch and not be tied to the traditional roast although that was also available.
The service was timely, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. I also thought it was well priced.
We will definitely be visiting again.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Another visit to The Foxham for Sunday lunch. Have never been disappointed and continue to be impressed by the friendly atmosphere and manager who is always willing 'tweak' a meal to suit individual tastes. Informal yet with an attention to detail.
