Sunday Lunch
This Virginia creeper clad, Cotswold stone inn with flagstone floors, exposed beams, open fireplaces and a collection of antiques is the quintessential British Pub. The Fox Inn is a perfect setting for either a cosy, romantic meal or a larger family get together, or maybe you want to escape from it all and enjoy a relaxing break away in this wonderful part of the Cotswolds.

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.

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

We found that the main courses were not very hot, the plates did not seem very warm.
The noise level from the music was a bit high.

New year eve. Family , early eve meal, lovely atmosphere very cosy . Good service. Only negative was the small choice of meals for New Year’s Eve.
6 choices plus steak. I chose the mushroom risotto which wasn’t the tastiest one I’ve ever had.

My husband and I were visiting the UK for business and found this place in the Rick Steves' book. Service was wonderful and the food was generous and delicious.

We found the menu a bit limited and less inspiring than on previous visits, but that is probably down to it being a Sunday close to Christmas. Some game would have been a nice option bearing in mind the location. Service good, friendly and helpful.

Pleasant country pub with very restricted parking. Although the staff were friendly and attentive the lunch menu was a bit short on options and expensive eg fancy burger and chips for £18.50 not exactly in the value for money category. Nice try but needs to do better to justify the bill.

Lovely and enthusiastic servers. Greta choice for Sunday lunch (vegetarian/non Roast lovers), loved the choice of the gluten free beer,
Everyone seemed so happy to be there and you can tell it's a well-loved Cotswolds pub.

A delicious lunch with well priced drinks. The downsides were that the room was a bit chilly when we arrived and whilst the service was good, there was a longer wait than normal between courses.

We have been regular customers at The Fox at Oddington for 20 years. We always enjoy our visits there and this was no exception. The belly pork main course was exceptional. Great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
