    The best Sunday Roast. Our family party of six, choose the roast from vegetarian, pork, beef and the triple roast. All were excellent. Highly recommended also the cauliflower cheese side dishes. The largest Yorkshire pudding I’ve ever eaten, couldn’t finish them. A large variety of vegetables on a plate, all delicious. Way too full to try deserts. Coffees are also excellent Thank you to Mario and his excellent team. We had a wonderful lunch and time.

    This is a lovely venue and the food was superb. We went for Sunday lunch, which was delicious. I am now hoping to go back to sample more from their extensive menu. The seafood looks amazing. Staff were delightful - efficient and polite. It was an excellent experience. Thank you.

    The food and service were the best, we couldn’t fault either, but the restaurant was so cold we wouldn’t return, it wasn’t a comfortable setting to eat, we weren’t the only couple who felt it was cold, we heard another couple complaining. I was right near a radiator and it wasn’t on at all even though it was only 3 degrees outside. The only heating was a fire in the bar when you enter.

    I cannot recommend The Foxham enough - possibly the best meal out we’ve ever had. Fresh seafood and the most mouthwatering flavours. Nothing pretentious, just incredible food cooked incredibly well. Pub style at the front and a lovely restaurant to the rear, prices mean it’s definitely more of a special occasion rather than an everyday but what a total gem in the middle of rural Wiltshire!

    Great service and a very nice Sunday Roast in a light and spacious setting - plenty of convenient parking and an extensive seating area outside if brave enough to endure the winter weather. Despite being a remote location, The Foxham is well worth a visit :-)

    Lovely welcome for first time visitors. Front of the pub doesn’t do it justice so that was a little nervy going in. Food was excellent although roast potatoes were reheated and not cooked fresh (I suspect). But rest of Sunday roast was outstanding. Will def go back.

    The food was excellent! The garlic prawns were cooked perfectly and the dressed crab was lovely, shame there was no lobster, I will remember to phone ahead next time! The beef croquettes were great, amazing flavour and the swordfish with the tomato compote was beautiful. Excellent selection of wine, the Sauternes was a great accompaniment to the creme brulee. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend a visit.

    The moules were as good as I have ever eaten, anywhere, including France... large and rich and flavoursome. In fact all the food was beautifully prepared. The restaurant was quiet at 1pm and then filled up noticeably making a warm atmosphere. Open wood fire most welcome, very friendly "no fuss" service was appreciated. The menu and actual food was really quite exceptional for a local pub... my wife and I had a brilliant celebration lunch and will def be back to the Foxham soon.

    We ate and stayed at the Foxham - received a very warm firendly welcome on arrival and were shown to our room. The room is small but functional - on the plus side the bathroom is clean and there's a kettle with tea and coffee etc. A decent wardrobe too. On the downside the room was dusty in places (top of headboard for example) and the bed was not v comfortable for two as the edges of the mattress had broken down over time and so you can't lay on the whole mattress. The food in the restaurant was v good - although not brilliant value. The menu is heavily fish based and they do it v well. We both chose lobster which is always pricey - we expected that but the half lobster my wife had was super tiny - no more than 3 or 4 mouthfuls and the claw had already been shelled. Starters and deserts were both excellent and whilst we didn't drink wine the list was varied and not overly expensive. Breakfast the next morning was OK without being brilliant. I'd recommend the restaurant - I wouldn't enthuse about the overnight stay but it was convenient as we were far from home and the owner and staff were really very welcoming and pleasant which makes any stay that much more pleasurable. A curate's egg I'd say: good in parts. My steer would be - go for the food

    Without doubt the best seafood restaurant in Wiltshire. I’ve had the privilege of dining in some of the finest restaurants in the world and this one is right up there. Yes it’s a pub but the quality of the food was fantastic. If you don’t like seafood there’s plenty of alternative dishes available. We had the oysters, scallops, dressed lobster and hake with mussels all washed down with a bottle of white. In a word - AMAZING

    Real shame you have to pay for so many extras, even some complimentary bread would have been nice. Shame you have to pay extra for bread, vegetables, chips, potatoes etc etc. I know its a thing these days but I feel this is wrong.
