The Fox Inn
One of the best pubs I have visited recently. The food is of the highest quality and very good value for money. The setting is so lovely and the service is faultless. Would highly recommend!
Lovely place, great service and excellent food. We had the Salmon Nicoise, the salmon was cooked perfectly.
As always, the Fox is a wonderfully atmospheric place, with great food and smiley accommodating service. We'll be back!
Fantastic place to stay and eat. They were very friendly and made sure we had somewhere safe to keep our bikes. We were made to feel very at home and the meal was fantastic!
Visiting the area for a short break and was recommended The Fox by the owners of the B & B where we were staying. The food was outstanding and although the restaurant was extremely busy, the staff were attentive and catered for our needs. The restaurant has got a sophisticated ambiance without being pretentious.
Staff were very pleasant and attentive. Tables well spaced for Covid. Nice wine list. Nothing overly creative on the menu but nicer than the usual pub/inn. Cream of mushroom soup was pretty bland, but the pork chop and steak were decent.
Lovely space and ambiance.
Great quality food in a pleasant environment but service felt slow. We gave up on desserts because no one came to take our order.
Overall shocking experience
You need to up your game fast
We did enjoy our Sunday lunch, husband and I had the roast beef and pork respectively.
Unfortunately although well cooked and high quality neither meal was piping hot - the food came very quickly- we’d only just been served our basket of bread when the meals arrived, so we concluded that it must have stood ready to be plated up. Not so cool that we’d have felt justified in complaining so we tucked in as quickly as we could. Roast potatoes delicious and my crackling was excellent. Also meat was plentiful and tender.
We had desert which were both very nice- husband particularly enjoyed his Brownie!
We had several servers who were all friendly and pleasant but it did make for a less personal experience. We put both this and the less than hot main meals down to a busy Sunday lunchtime- this pub has a very good reputation and at a less rushed time I think the experience may have been even better. We’d certainly try it again.
They were able to accommodate our request to sit outside. We ordered three mains - the pork chop, fish & chips and a chicken Caesar salad - all of which were average. The Fox is similarly priced to somewhere like The Kingham Plough yet the food at The Fox is nowhere near as tasty. On the other hand, the service and beer were fairly good.
Friendly staff and accommodating considering we have two young kids. Love the outside space. Food was out of this world. Had the rid of beef and it was amazing. The soufflé is to die for.
Fab food, fab staff. As I'm vegan there wasn't anything on menu for me, but chef cooked a special vegan dish, and dessert.
Delicious food. Lovely service although there had been a problem with booking. We were told kitchen closed but they would serve us anyway.
Delicious pasta . Wonderful thank ce cream. Great spot
A really excellent Sunday lunch we ate in the courtyard - very well spaced. The food was excellent in choice and quality and very ample portions - the staff extremely friendly and we will look forward to returning soon.
As always fantastic , food , service and ambiance . The staff are friendly and helpful , food cooked with love , the cheesecake was divine
Thx for a great evening
Great staff provided excellent service and a very good explanation of all courses.
Food was superb and beer well kept.
We will return!
40 minutes to deliver starters that shoukd have been prepped- especially given such a limited menu. Pate starter turned out to have same taste and consistency as chocolate mousse. Awful
Most had haddock for main course - with processed peas and chips. Not food enough
I clearly wasnt happy with the chocolate mousse starter. Charged anyway
Schoolboy error making unhappy customers pay for poor food
I wish you had noticed that your starter have not been charged. Your critic regarding the pate is quiet subjective, please in the future, take the time to read the menu to avoid disappointment. From the moment your entered the pub, you have had a rude and unexplainable attitude toward every member of the team. Still we did our duty profesionnally. Behind your screen, you continue to be unrespectful. Your guests were very nice, please thank them for us. Ps: Go easy on the ketchup ;-)
This was our 4th visit. Food as normal, exceptional but we had to wait for over an hour from our starters to our main course
By the time it arrived 2 if the table had lost their appetite
All decided we will have to rethink our Sunday lunch venues
Excellent food with a great ambiance and first rate service.
Delightful staff as ever
Great burger specials!
Continues to be an excellent lunch spot. Very welcoming and friendly. Attentive service and good food.
The food gets better and better at The Fox. Very good green leaves starter with nice dressing followed by enormous fish and chips. Definitely recommend.
Great service and ambience. Great for a night out it don't expect too much from the kitchen. Food not the best.
Food was quite nice and arrived promptly
Staff were friendly and reasonably efficient.
But parking was a bit of a nightmare
I had to park 150m away from the pub and it was pouring with rain.
First visit and what really welcomes you is the country style inn. You could tell the food was all prepped on site and the menu had a bit of imagination especially the desserts. It was a bit nosey in terms of hearing conversations on other tables but would visit again
Not great. Second time we’ve visited in the past month at the weekend and been told “we’re very busy so service will be slow - please bear with us because it’s the weekend.” Sadly other local pubs don’t have the same problem you’re encountering at weekends so we won’t be visiting again until the kitchen “hold up” problem, or shortage of staff issue, is resolved. We love eating with you, but a 3hr dinner for a table of 6 when we didn’t even have pudding does not make for a pleasant Saturday night out.
Dear Anonymous guest, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. Thank you for your precious advices regarding our service we will surely learn from it. Three hours for a Saturday night dinner seems quiet a long , we do apologise for this. We confirm that the Fox is busy every week end, if you would prefer a quieter atmosphere and a more personalised service, feel free to visit us Monday to Thursday or to visit the other local pub you are mentioning in your comment. Best Thom
We enjoyed our lunch very much. Good food and ambience. Service started off good, but toward end of meal there seemed to be noone around to ask for the bill. But otherwise all good.
Wonderful delightful and delicious. A great experience!
Fantastic service and the cheese soufle is amazing!
We meet friends regularly at The Fox and it is always excellent. Lovely food, friendly service.
The Fox is always wonderful especially with the current management. So hospitable with fantastic service! Beautiful food and a good selection. Always buzzy.
Thank you so much for making our evening so special! I’m sorry we kept you so late! We had such a lovely time.
The Fox and was a fantastic find off the beaten Trail in the Cotswolds and we would definitely go back again.
The service was just as good as the food and the all-round experience was marvellous
Staff were welcoming, helpful and attentive. Sunday roast was very enjoyable and tasty. Would have liked vegetables to have been a bit more plentiful. Choice of starters and desserts was good. Would go back again.
We booked for Sunday Lunch. The pub was VERY busy when we arrived but we were seated without any real delay. There was a wait of 20mins for our food (main course only) which was acceptable and when it arrived, the food was excellent. However, the service was poor due to the pub being so busy. Got fed up waiting for somebody to come and take a dessert order so walked round to pay for meal. Service here is normally very good but the sheer number of people in the place meant that it was sorely lacking.
Very friendly staff, love the rustic but tasteful decoration. There is a gorgeous room for private parties. Food was very good indeed in terms of taste & presentation. Nice relaxed atmosphere which wasn’t too late. Dogs welcome. Lovely fire. Definitely recommend.
We enjoyed the evening tremendously with thoughtful and gentle service, delightful food and wine in a warm village pub atmosphere.
Oh my goodnes - go just for the twice baked souffle!
Always a good Sunday lunch but very slow service this time. We waited 25 mins between courses. Bit noticeable when you are only 2. But good food and reasonable value
