Tried to visit on a Monday night only to find it was closed, a recent change apparently. Glad we made the effort the next night. Staff were very friendly, particularly Stuart - said I would give him a mention; noticed whenever my wife's glass was empty and was happy to fill it again. Good food, the 10 oz sirloin steak was excellent with all the trimmings and from a farm just down the road. Real onion rings, delicious. The fish platter was delicious, very light and crispy batter. Wish we could have found room for a dessert, you can have one to take home if you wish. My daughter tried the salad with chorizo and grilled halloumi, she has been disappointed in the past but not this time, she was impressed.

Had this pub/restaurant on our list to try while staying in Dorrington. Had a few drinks and ordered food. I ordered the burger with bacon and cheese and my husband had the 10oz sirloin. The dishes came out in good time,hot,big portion sizes and looked tasty . My husband raved about how fantastic the steak was which he doesn,t do very often and commented it was the best one he,d ever had including eating in Canada and the USA. The young man behind the bar said they get all their meat from a local butcher. My burger was also very good. We stayed and had deserts and chatted to the owner. If you are the area I would say you should give this place a try. It has lovely staff, wonderful food at good prices. I know that when we next come to Shropshire we will be eating at The Fox Inn again.

Very friendly staff, really couldn't do enough for you. Food nice and cheesecake to die for. My only feedback would be that we're used to ice cold cider 'up north' and it was served room temperature. Not a complaint because that's how it might be served down here but having ice was no trouble at all. Very nice ladies loos with lots of products available, deodorant, hair spray, feminine bits and bobs, a very nice touch. Seemed to be a popular pub with lots of locals in.

My partner and I were on holiday at nearby Pigeon Door and the Fox Inn is a pleasant 25 minute stroll away. I am vegan and had sent an email in advance to see if any vegan options would be available. I was delighted when Sue replied attaching an entire menu of vegan options for me to choose from! All my emails were responded to promptly, and on the night we visited, everyone we met was so friendly and the food was great - My vegetarian partner really enjoyed his meal too. All in all, a lovely evening.
