This is a very nice pub. The landlord and his staff are very friendly. The menu is not extensive, but is well presented and cooked.

Staying at Langley Gate House the Fox was suggested for an evening meal. It turned out to be an excellent recommendation. Very good menu which suited our party which had one vegie, and we all had different items and everyone said how good they were. Despite large portions all the plates went back empty! Service was excellent, making sure we all were happy without being intrusive.

We visited this pub for the first time on a Saturday lunchtime. The pub was pretty quiet, but we were given a warm welcome. We had a variety of main courses, the food was tasty and the chips were lovely homemade chips. Portions are very generous, but we were greedy and also had desert. The deserts are lovely, particularly the ice cream sundaes. A great country pub.

Staying with friends at Ryton during the excellent Shrewsbury Folk Festival we took an evening stroll down the lanes near Dorrington to The Fox Inn. We’d been told it was a locals’ pub (whatever that means) but we had a warm welcome from the bar staff & “mine host” as well as some of the aforementioned locals. The menu was extensive although ironically, as the four of us fancied some comfort food in the shape of fish & chips, there was only two cod left on the menu so two of our party had the scampi. The food was delicious, especially the mushy peas (if you’re a fan!), and the service was prompt & friendly. Well worth a visit!
