Weird, disjointed dinner with staff who didn't really know what was happening. Great decor, plenty of parking and ok food. One of our dinners was amazing, the other was dreadful. They are new so hopefully they will fix the problems as it is well located.

We've been told that this was a fairly ordinary pub but that it had undergone a really good makeover and last Sunday we went there and can confirm they've done a really good job. We had Sunday lunch and it was first class. Lots of lovely vegetables and the roast beef was plentiful and good and rare - not overdone.... More

Came here for dinner on Saturday.. Was expecting high standards.. but didn't get it. Assistant Manager was very pleasant and chatty. starters arrived - on cold side plates.. presentation was rubbish, and the food already cold before we got it.. we all shared, so 4 more cold plates.. the calamari was ok - not much of it.. the 3 scallops...

We had such a lovely lunch, the food was excellent and the staff warm and welcoming. However, I must agree with a couple of other recent reviewers. We, too, waited for at least an hour and a half for our mains to arrive (a long wait, with little children in the party), and the dish I received - whilst delicious!... More

We have visited the Fox for years and were keen to try it out having been recently refurbished. Clearly from the outset the Fox is going through a period of transition. This was reflected in the service and the delivery of simple things like sauces, taking orders etc. The chef did check in with us and the food was good.... More

On the positive side the pub has been refreshed and the management clearly make you welcome. Unfortunately after that nothing much went as promised. It was a challenge to get served and to get sauces, drinks, etc . Service was so slow we gave up after one course and one drink, having intended more. They may have been overwhelmed by... More

Sunday Lunch for 8 Firstly very little parking for the volume of customers The stairs to the restaurant which is upstairs, very dangerous, whilst we were there two people fell, one a young waitress and an older lady at the top. I would suggest the depth of the steps themselves are not deep enough and with staff having to run... More

The food if or when it arrives is good. The problem with this refurbished gastro pub is the staff. None are trained or if they are it didn't work. The staff are issued with a small card of instructions to carry in their aprons which tells them how to serve: this bizarre approach is a big fail. Where to begin?... More

We hosted a wake for 20 friends in 2 stylishly comfortable upstairs rooms. The service was outstanding, the food excellent and the atmosphere convivial. Our local guests were very impressed by the new refurbishment and expressed their intent to return. Rebecca was very friendly and extremely helpful and sensitive when booking the venue. We wish them every success.

Booked a room for 20 of us in one of the upstairs dining rooms. Snug was lovely for pre dinner drinks. Waiting staff were brilliant and food was delicious. One of our party is in fact looking to book her husbands 40th.
