The Fox Inn
Nearly walked out initially: stood at the quiet bar for quite a while until our presence was finally acknowledged, whilst the sole member of staff chatted to a presumed regular drinker. Pointed us to a table, not given menus. Two other tables were already occupied by diners waiting to order. Eventually brought menus; a second member of staff appeared and took our order ahead of the other tables, apologising that he’d been taking nap. All other tables occupied later. Food very good, quantities modest. Wine rather overpriced (Picpoul de Pinet £28).
Have visited this pub intermittently over a 20-year period, during which it has changed hands several times. Originally excellent, but took a dive a few years back; food quality now restored, but we did not feel very welcome: all a bit cliquey. Wouldn’t rush to return.
Dear guest, Thank you for letting us know about your experience and your constructive feedback it will help us to improve collectively as it seems that our team work has failed during your visit. Best Regards Thom and the team
We had a lovely lunch although quite expensive for what we had....especially as it was just a lunch. It was very noisy with dogs barking. Don’t agree with dogs being aloud while eating! The service was very good and we were made very welcome. Will certainly go again, having said that as I said I do feel that something should be done about dogs while eating. I love dogs but do feel they shouldn’t be aloud while eating!
An all round lovely lunch out. Sat right next to the fire, amazing double cheese soufflé and lovely French owners, attentive and not overbearing. Go to The Fox!
We previously enjoyed two delicious meals at the Fox since our first visit in January 19. Unfortunately the last meal was such a disappointment. The stone bass was over cooked , the stew accompanying was taste less, garlic bread was burnt, the fish and chip meal that my husband ordered was just adequate, but nothing special, the chips were completely dried out, probably kept warm, it was like the original chef was on holiday and agency staff had taken over. Touch and go if we will return, such a shame.
As always the food and service was excellent but unfortunately there was a very strong smell of some sort of fuel as we came in and which lasted the whole evening which spoilt our experience somewhat.
We went to the Fox following a recommendation by a friend... it was perfect! The food was outstanding and the welcome we received was warm and sincere. Would thoroughly recommend a visit!
A very enjoyable evening with friends. Very good food and good choice of wine. Only adverse comment was that the service, though friendly and generally good, lapsed at times, notably after the food when we had to chase up the coffee and then the bill. This is a common fault with restaurants and a shame as it’s good to leave on a high note.
Delicious food and outstanding service. We went out for dinner as a birthday treat for my Sister and had a really wonderful time. The decor was candlelit, tweedy and cosy, our waiters were attentive and cheerful and the food was well balanced and tasty. When, at the end of the meal the waiter realised we were celebrating he quickly rustled up an ice cream and candle plus some colleagues to sing a hearty ‘Happy Birthday’. Great relaxed place for a celebration.
Very good food but the overall experience wasn't because of the service.
We spend there around 3hours because of the delays. Waiters were running from one place to another without taking us the first order. We also suffered delays between dishes.
Dear Guest, We are sorry that you haven t has the best experience at The Fox a week ago. The sunshine and the warm temperature have taken us by surprise and maybe we should have taken the decision to ask people eating in our garden to order at the bar. We fully apologise for this experience. Thank you for your constructive feedback, it helps us to improve. Best Regards Tom and the team
We visit quite a few times in year and always have great food in a pleasant atmosphere.
Service was a bit slow this lunch time, but they did apologise when we came to bill.
Looking forward to our next visit
We had a thoroughly enjoyable sunday lunch at this pub - staff could not have been more helpful.
We visited The Fox Inn for a birthday celebration and were made to feel very welcome including our very well behaved border collie. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. All in all a great evening and then went back the next day for Sunday lunch which again was very good. Thoroughly recommended.
Lovely staff and food
Great pub, attentive staff, excellent food
Delicious food. Good atmosphere. Charming & efficient staff.
We had a great time. Food and service were everything we could have wanted. Good atmosphere without it being packed. Chicken Supreme and Ox Cheek both highly recommended.
This is 4th year of visiting the area and always look forward to a night at The Fox
Great food, great wine and great staff. Favourite place to visit in the area.
The service is really what makes this restaurant. Sam and his colleagues are outstanding and really do go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Fox to anybody
An excellent traditional and cost setting ... log fire roaring. Great service. The cheese souffle is the chef's special amongst the starters. Plenty of traditional country fare, as well as pub classics. The wine list may not be very long ... but some excellent choices.
We love the food and service
Good food great service great pub
Warm welcome, friendly service and good food
The Fox is a lovely pub restaurant with a warm, welcoming ambience.
The food is outstanding and all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals from start to finish.
The service was initially very good and the staff were attentive: as the evening wore on, they became less so and we had to get up twice from our table, first to ask for the dessert menu and again for the bill.
The music was a tad too loud and at times we were struggling to hear each other.
So, great food - just work a little harder on the other important details!
Although our meals were delicious when they arrived the service was not good, given it was a busy lunchtime but we had prebooked. We had to wait over 30 minutes for our orders to be taken and then another 20 minutes or so for our starters.
The portion sizes were adequate but not generous considering the cost, we did enjoy our meals but could have eaten more!
Food, staff and service top notch, would drive the 2 hours again to visit this place.
Place was super nice, food very good, and service as well. We had a lovely lunch
2,5 hours to have 2 courses ...total chaos ....1 hours before our prefer was taken ...2 new agency chefs ...I’ve been going for 20 years but this meal was a disaster
Dear guest, We do apologise for the experience you had. There are no excuses to justify such a long delay for a meal. We will take the right decisions to avoid this to happen again. Thank you for your feed back. Best Regards Thom and the team
One of the worst meals I’ve very had in my LIFE! I never wrote reviews but this certainly needs one because I wouldn’t go back if you paid me. Table booked for 1pm. Our starters came at 2pm. Mains at 3pm which were very much average. Lots of other diners complaining and only one poor server actually look genuinely sorry and stressed
Sunday lunch with friends so we chose one of our usual ‘go to’ safe bets and sadly this turned out to be a mistake. Starters took over an hour to arrive with no explanation and when we did ask where our food was , the reply was clearly fabricated as surrounding tables were also complaining about the length of time it was taking for food to arrive. If there’s a problem in the kitchen, best be up front about it! Diners who arrived and had not booked were not turned away and should have been as the kitchen was unable to cope: the fact that they were not just smacked of greed. When dinner arrived the roast potatoes were burned. I was embarrassed to have brought friends to a place we have raved about and be let down in this way. V disappointing...
Dear Guest, During your last visit 7 weeks ago, we have had some technical problems it s true. Since then we have taken all important decisions to insure a special moment to everyone. We do apologise for the experience you had on February 3rd. There are no excuses to justify such a long delay for a meal. We would love to be able to give you a better experience, please contact me as soon as you can. Thank you for your feed back. Best Regards Thom 01451870555
Meeting up with friends for lunch. Good food, friendly and efficient service and warm ambience. Will return.
Brilliant evening at the Fox. Service really friendly and efficient, couldn't have been better .Food wonderful and well performed , with a good wine list to match at sensible prices , mixed with a very good atmosphere , we will return soon !
So glad we booked this for a great night with fabulous friends which we hadn’t seen in a while . The food was incredible , most notibly the cheese soufflé which we couldn’t stop raving about . It was so good we considered ordering it again for desert !!!
The service was fantastic , the food divine , the atmosphere cosy and quirky . I would highly recommend this place and will be returning soon .
They are kind to let us in very muddy and often late for the table. We were bad customers but they were great hosts !!
Great to report ours was a return visit, this time celebrating a birthday. The staff were fantastic throughout, all seemed to enjoy making time for our 10yr old, helping him to enjoy the experience.
Great food for our late Saturday morning brunch, we were made to feel most welcomed.
Very disappointed. Been here before 10 years ago. Soufflé very poor. Very poor service: staff brilliant in circumstance. Puddings mediocre. Very disappointed as had driven over 1 hour to get there.
Excellent service and delicious food albeit a bit pricey but had a lovely time, we did not, however, enjoy having dogs off the lead in the restaurant.
The Fox never fails to impress. The service is friendly and efficient - despite being busy the staff always find time to smile and have a few words, and can advise on the menu and the wine. It is a great pub for many occasions, but Sunday lunch it really comes into its own as the roast dinners are exceptional.
The service needs improving , nice staff just forgetful . Everyone very busy but not a lot of corodination .
Outstanding food, ambience, staff and service. Paulina was charming and delightful, as were all staff. The nicest pub in the Cotswolds and beyond, that we have visited!
