Visited Saturday evening 11th October. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were very obliging. Great food and atmosphere plus our dog was made welcome as well. Nice to see traditional standards are still going strong. Will definitely visit again. 10/10.

First time eating in the Fox Inn and had to say was very surprised. The staff are so friendly and really knew the food and explained the positive points about each meal we considered.

I had the prawns to start which where fantastic and not over cooked, I then followed this up with the steak and kidney pie which was amazing, not too much pastry and plenty of gravy. The portion sizes are large and filling and I doubt you would fit a pudding in.

If you're looking for a meal or a drink in a pub which cares about its community and its customers then make sure you try here you won't be disappointed. Thanks for a lovely meal and a great evening.

Visited twice over August BH weekend and had a great time on both occasions although the weather was a bit grim. Made very welcome by the staff as was our dog. The food and beer was excellent as was the cider for the cider festival.
This is a great pub well worth a visit with staff who make you feel welcome even if you are not a local. Well done.

We visited here on Thursday 14th August for an evening meal. I had gammon and my girlfriend had a burger. We both enjoyed our food and we certainly got a lot for our money, I could not finish my Gammon as so much was on the plate, and it was very nice :-)
