We had roast beef x3 - plenty of well cooked tasty beef but the sides were slim and the Yorkshire puddings cold
Wouldn’t return for Sunday lunch sadly

A very pleasant dining experience. Good good and a good selection on the menu. Service could be a bit quicker but the staff are very pleasant and know what they are doing. The level of speed of the service could be due to covid staffing levels. Don’t let this put you off going to the Fox. It’s a lovely experience.

Really pleased with our New Year's Eve meal at The Fox. The food and drinks were excellent and the service very efficient and polite. It was quite quiet when we were there (I expect it got busier later in the evening) but there was some good background music to add to the atmosphere. Not the cheapest place but for the quality I thought it was great value. I would definitely recommend and will definitely return.

Food was outstanding, the service was poor. The staff was rude and felt like they had an attitude due to working chrimbo eve. We had to wait 40 mins for our food also. Was left disappointed!

Absolutely loved The Fox, a traditional, welcoming pub all the more gorgeous with the Christmas decorations. We stayed the night in a cosy and comfortable room, the breakfast was fabulous, the staff wonderful and all in all the perfect location for enjoying the delights of Chipping Norton high street. Would highly recommend, thank you Hannah and team.

Really great place! As a solo traveller you can sometimes be made to feel like an inconvenience, but the staff here were very welcoming and there was a nice ambiance to the restaurant without being over-bearing. Food was exceptional, I had the terrine that was full of flavour, steak that was well cooked and sticky toffee pudding that was nice and moist without being sickly sweet. All in a great experience and highly recommended - booking in advance would be sensible!

Very delicious on a warm and friendly relaxed atmosphere. Our party had an elderly lady and a wheelchair user, they were both very comfy. Only difficulty was getting the wheelchair out afterwards as it was a bit tight.
Very happy overall and would recommend

Unfortunately food wasn't great, only thing me and my mum ate was the hash browns.
Been here for brekkie many of times and it's been great so was just a 1 off.
Gave us a refund too.
