Partner and I called in on way home for impromptu lunch yesterday and we were very pleasantly surprised.

We were greeted by a gentleman who was very friendly and welcoming. There was no pressure put on us with regards to our order for food or drinks, and once we placed them, it didn't seem to be much of a wait for the food either :)

I opted for the fish and chips while the other half had the gammon.
The fish was beautifully cooked (and not oily) and crisp, like the kind you would taste at a seaside resort and the chips was crispy and fluffy.

We then opted for dessert, which isn't something we usually go for.
I had the cheesecake of the day (stem ginger and white chocolate) while partner had chocolate brownie

We were both very impressed with our experience and having had a read of the menu, cant wait to go back and try something else (the build your own burger seems a favourite with us both)

Family Sunday lunch with children aged 3-7. We were made to feel very welcomed, nothing was too much bother. My relatives live in the next village and regularly walk to The Fox. Very clean. Car Parking available and outside seating. The pub is not open all day, check times before you leave home.
The Sunday lunch roast dinner meat portion was 'large' and the roasties were great. The side veg, was a little over cooked. It's a very laid back place and made if very difficult for us to want to spent the next 4 hours in the car driving home!
