    I enjoyed a delicious Sunday lunch here with my family. I don’t know how so many pubs and restaurants manage to get Sunday roasts so wrong but thankfully The Fox was not one of them. We will be coming back.

    The Fox was recommended to us by our daughter and son-in-law who visited during the Christmas period. We were pleasantly surprised at how amazing the restaurant, bar and the outside space is. There is a good selection of food to choose from the menu. The service was excellent and manager absolutely charming. We will definitely return and look forward to the spring and summer months where we can enjoy alfresco dining.

    Another lovely evening out. Food was really tasty, hot and in my opinion, good value. Restaurant was full without being over crowded, great atmosphere and the open fire kept the restaurant at a lovely temperature for another cold night.

    Excellent prawn tacos with just the right amount of chilli. Unfortunately the saute potatoes did not come with the cod (as was advertised) but the dish was perfectly palletable - the venison ragu looked fab (one to try next time). Good sweets and coffees. Very good service. Although the cast iron stove was burning it was very nippy until the other customers came in. All in all we would recommend the Fox, which is in a lovely location by the river.

    Nice place and dog friendly. Service was very prompt and friendly if a little slapdash - eg missing parts of the order and forgetting things. The food was ok but could have been better for the price. I had a roast beef dinner and the beef was very tough - definitely not a good cut of meat which I would have expected for the price. The main issue was that as a party of 7 we were told that we would have the table for 3 hours - 2 hours in we were told that there had been a mistake with the booking and we would need to vacate. I should emphasise that this was done very politely and with apology but it was very inconvenient given we had travelled to there to meet family it would have been nice to have more time. I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily a bad place but not sure I’d rush back either.

    We had not visited you before. Cant fault the girls who served us and the food was good. But the noise of the barking dogs by the top window was certainly very annoying especially as the owners did nothing to stop the dogs barking We will come back as the setting is great and food very good.

    Brilliant location, excellent ambience, great service and value for the area. Hopefully this won't change as this pub becomes more well known. The burger, pie of the day, and roast all looked really nicely made and good portion sizes. The feedback on the table was that the food was very tasty and all 5 of us would go back. I unfortunately ordered what to seemed to be by far the worst dish they serve. The cod fillet portion size and consistency was simply not up to the standards of the other dishes - very chewy and very small. I did get to try the roast and that was, in fact, amazing.

    We had some nibbles to start with followed by two main courses from the specials board. We finished with two desserts also from the specials board. We can heartily recommend our main courses- the bacon chop and the cod. One of us then had a chocolatey pudding while the other had rice pudding- absolutely amazing.

    Good location, food, and feel. Sad to see 10% service charges added to the bill. Either the prices don't include staff wages or they're awkwardly trying to milk more money out of you. If so £20 for a Sunday lunch without staff wages included is extortionate. Make it an option to choose on the card machine. It is not the USA.
