Local chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix opened The Fox Inn in December 2020. Nestled in the Dorset countryside, just four miles from Beaminster, the pub is open 6 days a week.

Enjoy food and drink sourced from the South West in the warm and welcoming surroundings of our 17th Century Grade II listed pub. Settle in by the open fire with bar snacks and a real ale or dine on locally sourced food and drink in the Garden Room with a wine list that champions British winemakers.

Take in the views of fields and rolling hills from the outdoor seating area from our covered and uncovered outdoor seating.

Mark's Kitchen Library offers a unique private dining experience for 10 guests. Choose from Mark Hix's sharing style feasts using the best of local produce.

However, we were not asked if we would like desserts or coffee following lunch so decided to have at home. Perhaps our penance for being late, although we had notified the staff and were told it was no problem and worked best for them anyway. Delicious oysters.

We noted that the price for for our Sunday roast had risen by £2 even though we had booked the table less than 24 hours previously. The beef was delicious but the parsnips were undercooked and almost inedible. All in all, Avery expensive Sunday lunch!

Friendly welcome, efficient service, solid wine list, and the roast… well, you have to try it for yourself. It is not cheap, but you get what you pay for. The sirloin was of the highest quality and it really was like cutting through butter. We live in London and so sadly cannot call this our local, but we vowed to come back and stay the night so that next time we can stagger upstairs for a nap afterwards.

On the pheasant Holstein, the breasts could have been bashed out flatter and the breadcrumbs could have been crispier and the curry would have been made perfect by a little bowl of chutney. Otherwise perfect.

Conservatory was cold - on a v cold day. But excellence of all the food courses outweighed that. The Brill was perfect, the steak beyond perfect, the first course (Mark's 3) and puds unusual and pleasing. Not pretentious, good sized portions, chairs comfortable. Not expensive for this standard, although not cheap either. This is a real pub combined with a non-pub style menu of dishes designed, cooked and presented with flair.

A bit more than we would usually spend but food was delicious and well worth it. 3 of us shared 2 starters, had a main and desert each plus a bottle of wine. Came to approx £40 per head. We all enjoyed our choices and agreed we couldn't have cooked any of it our selves to anywhere near the same standard. (I hate it when I feel I could do better myself). Relaxed friendly atmosphere. Attentive and cheerful waiting staff. Lovely way to spend New Year's Eve.

The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was exquisite, but then I didn’t expect anything less given the owners pedigree. My partner ordered a trio starter that included Korean Beef, mackerel and beetroot amongst other ingredients that escape my memory. I had a Game Broth. It was very tasty but unfortunately it was a little dark around our table so I could not see the contents of the broth. Nonetheless it was lovely. Mains were, Sea Bass for my partner and steak for me. Again both were fantastic but I must mention that I was expecting chips with my steak. It did come with a form of chips which were cleverly layered strips of potato that were deep fried. Very interesting. The whole experience was great and when Chef, Mark Hix sauntered over for a chat it just made the evening more special. The fact that it appears that all ingredients are sourced from local producers makes it even better, apart from some wines, obviously. We will be back again soon.

Food was definitely above average for the area and was served attractively at the correct temperature. Will return!

However the style of service is a mistake, nothing was recorded when we ordered our meal. Multiple things where forgotten and as we were not asked if our meal was ok, we did not have a chance to ask for the missed items. My partner ordered sausages and asked for mustard which was forgotten, he also ordered ice cream with his desert and it was served with custard. Shame everything else was quite nice but disappointed about the style of service. When we visited it was not very busy. I think this way of ordering is going to be a real mistake at busy times.

It is a pub serving food and as such you should go expecting that. It is not fine dining or anything special. Even though they charge as if it is! If you are visiting in winter go dressed warm as the eating area is in a lean to on the back of the building and so very sort/draughty. Shame as tempting us out of our warm Comfy home in the depths of winter we expected to be warm, sat on comfy seating and be served professionally and with great local food. Sadly this didn’t happen. It is a very dog friendly pub and as such expect owners dogs loose around the eating area. Expect to pay for mediocre food at London rates and still expect to pay the full price for it, have items missing but still pay for it, be laughed at by your server and then still take your service charge for such service! We are local & look to try local restaurants to recommend to our lovely guests sadly this one didn’t hide it. We are currently in the middle of a 20 day restaurant tour and so far have been amazed and wowed by sone truly great local food & service. We’d advise to avoid and try other great places as there’s so many that are better: seaside boarding house, Ollerod, station kitchen, fleur de Lys, Halbury cottage to name but a few we’ve been to this past two weeks! Simply put poor service, mediocre food, overpriced - read the reviews - wish we had! £150 wasted … enough said

Portions very small and the rice was the cheapest possible, not Basmati. Service was slow and the very loud 70’s disco music was totally inappropriate for the setting and the wished-for relaxed evening meal. One of the 2 ladies toilets had a broken seat hanging off and both had significant levels of dust and detritus on the top of the wood panelling. They have clearly not been cleaned properly for some time. Very disappointing.
