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.

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

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.

We spent Christmas Eve dining here and it was perfect. The food was great. Our parents had haddock and chips and after complaining it was too large, they proceeded to eat it all happily. I had chicken Milanese and my husband had the duck. Both were delicious. The staff were very welcoming and served us quickly with a smile.

We went to The Fox for our office Christmas lunch and it was fab as usual: the food was excellent (cheese soufflé is the best ever!) and the service was courteous and friendly - we felt well looked after. The atmosphere here is perfect, it's the ultimate Cotswold dining pub, love it.

We had a lovely long family & friends lunch here. We have four rather noisy children & they were very patient & couldn't have done more to help us all have a lovely afternoon. Food delicious too.

We really enjoyed our trip to The Fox. We meet up with old friends once a year at this time and this was the ideal venue. We have lots to talk about and no-one rushed us. The two young waitresses were delightful. We can highly recommend the food , particularly the twice cooked souffle and the duck. Thank you so much we will certainly come again.

Lovely countryside pub with tasteful interior and decoration, great food and very friendly service. Very busy at the weekend with a lot of tables squeezed in and therefore longer waiting times for food but worth the wait. Thank you x

Great food, great location, lovely perfect country pub serving good booze and food, real fires. Very bubbly and friendly staff. My only issue is the tables were packed in a bit too much in the main bar area. If you want it a bit quieter then ask to be seated out the back. Food is delicious, lovely wood burner in the main bar. They have rooms as well but I've not stayed. Great pub to visit when in the area.

My wife and I visited for lunch with our three year old daughter and five month old son and couldn’t have been looked after better. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent and we will definitely return.
