Excellent original food, full of flavour.
We sat in the conservatory, very comfortable. Service was a bit slow due to staff shortages but friendly and positive. I certainly recommend the Fox

Charming, bucolic pub serving delicious food by friendly, lively and knowledgeable staff. The menu is varied and should widely appeal. Freshest fish and ingredients. Would definitely go out of my way to return. Memorable.

The food was very good. My only criticism is that the threesome starter came in a dish with three compartments and every time I tried to cut something with my knife and fork the whole thing tipped over!

Menu did not appeal to either of us , lighting too low to risk the whole bass, so had the fish fingers , mushy peas were good as was soda bread, Beetroot soup was tasteless needed cream not so much horse radish grated on top, not keen on black pudding that was in several offerings, charging separately for veg and service charge added is unreasonable

Very mediocre, over priced and average. I had Marks trio to start which was served in a silver three part scallop dish, this was fine except for the acidic fish element which reacted with the dish leaving a silver polish aftertaste in my mouth. The bacon joint main was pretty average and really didn’t show much skill at all. The Acorn up the road is better.

Very much a pub ambience - we were seated at a table right in front of the bar with the main door beside us, so there was a great deal of foot traffic past our table. That said, the service was outstanding and friendly from all the staff. We had lamb sweetbreads with lobster and Scottish chanterelles in a delicious sauce - unusual flavours and spectacularly tasty - and a sirloin steak that was perhaps slightly more rare than requested, but very good, along with Foxy chips (like potato dauphinoise). We both enjoyed the scallops we had to begin. Food is pricey but worth it and the Italian white wine I had was good value.

The staff were really helpful and friendly. Finn was excellent! The food was very good, though I feel at that price bread should have been served with it. Also if meals needed potatoes they should have been part of the dish rather than at an extra charge even if it meant putting the price up. Overall good experience but the above issues may sway us not to come back when selecting where to eat out next time.

We had a really lovely stay here.
The staff were so friendly from the moment we arrived and we had a couple of drinks before going to our room to drop our bags.
Dinner was in the delightfully decorated Garden room and was delicious, as was the bespoke breakfast in the morning.
The room itself is incredibly comfortable and well appointed. The huge shower was particularly nice. I could’ve stayed in there for hours!
All in all a really lovely experience that I’m sure we’ll do again.
Couldn’t fault it.

We came back after an amazing dinner last time. This tiles the steak and foxy chips was again wonderful, but the service was a bit iffy - we had to remind the staff about condiments and salads arrived undressed - and one of our puddings was ok but a bit basic. I’d still recommend The Fox though. Lovely location enthusiastic staff and great food in general

This was the second visit for lunch, the team were welcoming and friendly. We went for the venison curry which was ok but not quite as tasty as hoped for. Also the marrow and chilli dip was rather bland. I will return because I love the ambience, and the food quality and service are exceptional, but I will choose a different dish next time. Well done, this is a brilliant venture and I really hope you continue to be successful.

Food ok but overpriced. Added service charge even though it was optional. Wanted to know why I queried it. I had to remind them “optional” service charge written on menu. Need to offer the service and the menu to automatically get anything like that

Food and service excellent, Mark Hix is a brilliant chef and takes time to speak to his diners. Would recommend dining inside the pub as loud potty mouthed locals spoilt the outdoor experience.

Great to see so many local and interesting ingredients on the menu. Courgette flowers were amazing start to delicious meal.
Staff really knew about the dishes and could make recommendations (tomatoes with bacon chop, no need for mash as came with the rabbit).
Garden room (for London foodie visitors) seemed separate from the pub ambiance at the front but was a wonderful evening and can wholeheartedly recommend.

Each plate of food we had was so tasty and didn’t disappoint in any way , my husband enjoyed the food so much he didn’t finish his wine ! Service was excellent, especially Felix who was outstanding in knowledge of wine and guiding us through the menu. The young man who was trusted with opening the wine was also worth a mention. We were pleased to meet Mark and can’t compliment him and his team highly enough . We loved it and will be back .

We were disappointed with the menu with the only fish dish served 'on the bone'.
I had the fish which was very good but prefer fish off the bone when restaurant -dining. My wife had the steak which was awful: it was cooked rare-medium rather than the requested medium and the meat had a very poor, sinuous texture. The steak knife provided was useless!
We had planned to have at least two courses but the time from our arrival to the taking of our order (over 45 minutes) was so long that we decided to have just one course.
The following night we ate at The Acorn a Evershot and that was excellent, both food and service!!
