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.

Excellent Sunday lunch. Roast beef plentiful and cooked to perfection (nicely rare).
Lovely selection of desserts.
Service was prompt and attentive given how busy it was.

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 old pub in Oddington. Service excellent even on a busy Sunday lunch. Pork and beef roasts very good and generous servings.

Service was attentive and food cooked well. The gin selection was limited and the menu choice was not very varied - usual pub fare.

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 had a lovely evening the pub was very busy so our food did take a little longer than expected. We were three friends who hadn’t seen each other in a while so we didn’t mind. Food was delicious when it arrived. Staff were attentive and overall we we enjoyed our experience and will be back soon. . Thank you

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.

We found The Fox Inn to have a relaxed, informal atmosphere for our meal for two. Staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The menu was not as extensive as some gastro pubs but there was a reasonable selection to suit most tastes with good vegetarian options available. Not particularly cheap but the food was really tasty and definitely worth it.

We live in Macclesfield and have been visiting The Fox Inn, Lower Oddington for around 25 years. I can honestly say that it has never disappointed us. We’ve visited at lunch and evening. This visit was on my husband’s birthday. The food was superb and the cheese soufflé sublime. The service (bar and food) by the sole french waiter was excellent and he was particularly charming and extremely efficient. The fact our dog was welcomed made the evening even more special. Would highly recommend this lovely country inn.

Lovely Sunday lunch with very good service even though the pub was packed. A minor niggle - I should have liked a wider choice of mains. Not fancying a roast, I opted for the starter twice baked cheese soufflé as a main (excellent). My husband’s pork was very good. Also we were not advised of the specials.

We are regular diners at the Fox Inn. It is an excellent gastro-pub, offering Cotswold charm and excellent and attentive service.
As a party of ten, some of the food was very good, but some slightly disappointing on this occasion.
We will be back however!

We had a family reunion and eight of us (including a toddler) went for Sunday lunch. The staff were fab and very accommodating of a little one whilst also ensuring that the adults were well fed and watered. Everyone loved their mains (though the roast pork could have been a bit warmer) but on a busy Sunday it is everything you could want. Great ambience, great staff and really good food.

We love to visit the Fox, the food is always great. The manager who welcomed us moved us twice to a table
We liked and had nice ambiance. There was a crowd but never was it too noisy. We will return again on this trip from Canada to the UK.

Nice cozy ambiance. Friendly staff who went the extra mile to still prepare us some food despite us arriving later than the usual lunch time and that the chef had left. The double baked cheese soufflé is a must try!!

Everything was great , disappointed to have had £10 added to my bill for a starter i didn’t have , a practice which is creeping in with other restaurants, a mistake or am i being over cynical !

A really charming old pub will oodles of character. The food is very good indeed and is served by attentive staff. A starter of scallops was cooked to exactly the right degree and my chicken main dish was also very good. In the absence of a soufflé, which I would always choose if on the menu, I enjoyed an affogato.

Great welcome and service, excellent food (best burger ever eaten!). A bit pricey but it is determinedly gastro, and its (very good, well-established) reputation goes before it, so not s surprise. Just need to make sure the many wasps at front window are kept under control.
