I don’t know how a pub in such a lovely location can keep getting it so wrong. Menu boring and expensive. Service slow. We asked for drinks as our meal arrived, finished the meal before they came. Girls behind the bar are nice enough but...More

Local pub feel downstairs, yet light airy at the same time. Restaurant feel upstairs. Great food! Hard to choose from menu. Pleasant waiter service.

Burger was very average. Service was amateurish. Not a particularly friendly atmosphere. Menu could do with a little more choice.

We stopped into the Fox this week when travelling through Farnham, a little sceptical having read other reviews. Frist impressions were what an impressive job someone has done on the decor. The place is beautiful especially the upstairs eating area. We were greeted with a...More
