“Our local secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

If you want good honest food at a fair price, delicious home brewed beer and a warm welcome with added entertainment by live local bands then visit. It's a cracking Norfolk pub. However it's a local pub for adults. Children are welcome in the beer garden and restaurant. Dogs are welcome in the bar. So everyone is happy.

“Magnificent Heacham Gold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is one of my favourite pubs anywhere. So great I proposed to Heather in there! A great welcome from Marie and Mark and a fantastic selection of hand pulled beers both from the adjacent Fox Brewery but also from other craft breweries in East Anglia and South Yorkshire. I particularly recommend the Heacham Gold. So good we bought a case of it home with us.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

As a regular visitor to Heacham over the year's the Fox has not always been an option for eating. Well that's changed, we have just returned and ate at the Fox twice and it is with out doubt a hidden gem, granted it's a locals drinking pub mainly, but surely that's what makes places individual, the food is very well cooked and presented and is great value for money. As a chef I can be fussy at times, but when it's cooked well and gives value it's hard to moan, having said that you'll always hear negatives, but most of the time that's just from career moaners. Not a massive menu, but all you need, the meat was really tender and the battered Cod was actually real fresh battered Cod. Let's not forget the in house brewery that produces some very fine ales. All in all The Fox is a great place to eat and drink and has some very special characters that help make it what it is. Oh and the bar staff and owner are all very pleasant and helpful. Go on give it a go, you'll be very pleasantly surprised.

This is a 'proper' village pub. It has its own brewery, Fox Ales', with its own beers and several guest ales. Frequented by the locals and holidaymakers with a lovely friendly atmosphere. The staff are also very friendly and helpful. Never eaten at this place but it has a very good menu with daily 'specials' which all look very good quality as they are presented. It has a very nice restaurant and outside patio for the warmer times as well. I was rubbing shoulders with one of the male stars from Downton Abbey, in his scruffs and enjoying a meal. I thought, if it is good enough for him its good enough for anyone. A lovely place, good prices, well worth patronising.
