Great food and friendly service.
First visit and very impressed with food and service
I never made this reservation. I was sent a link that was impossible to cancel. I wrote to OpenTable to complain but I’ve had nothing but junk mail since. Please delete my details from your records and maybe check the validity of email addresses before you make a reservation?
Fantastic food and a great selection. Service was superb and food delivered very quickly. The staff were very efficient and polite. It was an absolute pleasure to dine there and will definitely recommend them to our family and friends.
Under the current rules and regs The Fox and their staff do remarkably well. The staff are always happy to see you, and cannot do enough. Good food always.
Great Vibe , great service , great food
Always great at The Fox. Excellent food and service to match.
Always have a lovely meal at the Fox . Food is fresh and most importantly good quality and served hot.
Very well managed Covid precautions & well spaced seating. Menu a little limited compared to normal but still a good selection. All meals a good size & very well presented.
Great food and the staff are brilliant never disappoints 👍
Lovely roast dinner as always but why so frugal with the veg
This is a great place to go if you want to eat outside as there is covered outdoor seating. Would have got 5 stars but two lunch dishes ordered took a long time to arrive due to some issue. Very friendly staff. Will visit again.
We have eaten here numerous times and never had cause to complain. Today was a big disappointment as my fish and chips were not hot and the batter under cooked. They happily exchanged it but the replacement was overcooked and the batter tasted bitter. 2 weeks ago I had the same meal and commented how good the batter and the fish was. I didn’t eat the tartare sauce as it looked very dry as if it had been around for ages. Such a disappointment after so many superb meals. This is a lovely venue and we thoroughly appreciate the peaceful ambience.
Hoping the quality returns to normal.
Proper country pub, great beer great food. And very COVID aware
In an effort to keep fit we have started to make our way through a book of Essex walks. This weekend we picked a walk that took us to Matching Tye. The book recommended lunch at the Fox. Thank goodness it was open and serving proper food. A pint of Dragonfly was swiftly followed by another. The burger was excellent. Scampi and chips was good too. Generous portions. Excellent service. Covid precautions taken seriously and plenty of space for social distancing. thanks a lot guys. Recommended.
As always a lovely meal was had at the Fox Inn. Thanks.
Hardly any choice on the menu and themeat was so tough even the dog had trouble
Very good. Great service. Good COVID awareness and control
All ways a good experience at the Fox we live in Sheering and I have been using the Fox on and off for 40 years. I am not a regular but at least 6 /12 times a year and my family also when we get together. Fox is a nice friendly family run establishment.
Lovely staff and lovely relaxed country pub atmosphere.
The Fox is such a lovely pub. The food and staff are first class
We've been to the Fox Inn a few times and this is the first time we had eaten out since lockdown. Honestly, we couldn't have hoped for better. We felt really safe and also welcomed. The food was outstanding. I thoroughly recommend the vegetarian nut roast for a roast dinner but all their food is amazing. We'll be back!
My meal was mucked up so I didn’t end up having it (that was my choice) they was very apologetic and I will defiantly go again as this is my local and I have never had a problem before
Eat in the garden nicely spaced and clean, food ok
Was very much covid safe had reduced seating and tables
Food was excellent a reduced menu but still plenty to choose from quality of food was excellent service was also excellent will definitely return
Have been visiting the Fox for years and would, and do, highly recommend it.
Always welcoming, excellent food and despite the Covid regs, everything delivered with a cheery attitude and a smile.
Sadly fellow customers did not adhere to the huge NoEntry sign! It gave us some amusement!
As always a lovely meal and warm welcome. I would recommend to anyone looking for a lovely evening with good service
Great service and lovely pork crackling!
Have visited The Fox many times but this was the first time we'd been for Sunday roast. The food was lovely, it was piping hot. The portions were generous especially the beef. Staff were attentive and courteous. The covid one way signage was clear.
Would definately recommend and most certainly will visit again.
The food was excellent. As was the service. We will be returning soon.
Despite getting our order wrong it was soon sorted out and overall we enjoyed the experience. We did notice that the prices had gone up considerably but I would recommend the pub as the food is very good.
Lovely pub in a quiet location. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food was great with good portion sizes.
I would definitely recommend to anyone and will hopefully be going there again soon.
Steak and ale pie. Highly recommended
Good food. Good atmoshere. Staff very good, helpful and friendly.
Fabulous pub and pub food that is as good as it comes. The fish and chips or steak and ale pie are highly recommended
So disappointed prawn cocktail was off the menu. We had last two beef pies and it was only just after 6pm and my son had the smallest strip of steak ever. The drinks order took ages to arrive too. Not up to usual standards sadly.
I have been visiting the fox for many
Years always have a nice meal and this time it was lovely to be tucked away which was perfect for our family meal to enjoy our dinner
Nice place food was a bit over done .would go again
Food excellent, staff very friendly, would highly recommend.
As always a fantastic experience. First time back since the start of Covid19 but everything was in place and all precautions were taken. Felt very safe. Meal delicious and Staff super lovely as always. Will definitely be going back soon. Thanks to everyone.
