It's our 3rd visit to The Fox and have had beautiful food every time. The Sunday roast beef was excellent and the Double cheese soufflé starter is a must.
The only negative from our latest visit was one member of staff (small bald headed guy - think he was the manager) was very rude with his service. Unlike all the other members of staff.

This is a frequently used 'local' for many Gloucestershire foodies, with excellently cooked, well priced, food and a sensible wine list. Menu changes regularly but keeps some classics like steak frites. Good seafood the night we went. Service is always efficient even under pressure, like it was this trip with the whole restaurant packed. Well worth the effort to visit.

We were recommended this place whilst talking to a shop-keeper in Stow-on-the-Wold... so we looked into it and decided to give it a try.. and we were pleased that we did. Very good food... the Chefs clearly know how to cook and cook well. We would definitely recommend you give it a go... you shouldn't be disappointed.

We booked a late-ish family Sunday lunch two weeks ago. We arrived for 2:00 so the restaurant was quietening down but It still took thirty minutes for our first ordered drinks to arrive. Starters were good, with two sharing the charcuterie board and several having the cheese soufflé. The roast beef was excellent and served rare. The sole was fresh and moist but ruined by a pile of incredibly salty capers dumped on top. Salted capers do need rinsing - chef please note! Most disappointing of all were the deserts. The children were given the smallest pieces of chocolate tart I have seen, with no attempt at presentation whatsoever. If you are running out, surely it would be better to say so and offer one portion only. Given the prices charged( around £7.00) I felt they were unacceptable. The gooseberry pannacotta was good. The service was pleasant but not very efficient. I have had better meals at this gastro pub.

Came across this pub restaurant on our way back from weekend away and needed so get some lunch for the children and us, and we were happy with our find! Such a lovely looking pub restaurant and decorated to a lovely standard both on exterior and interior.

It was a Monday lunchtime so it wasn't busy and there were hardly any other diners. Although the staff were quite friendly, we didn't feel overly welcome with our two young children (5 yrs and 18 months) - no high chairs available (luckily we had our own in car) and at first the gentlemen gave us 4 normal menus (!) with no mention of any the dishes being available for children so we did think about packing up and moving on. After a while he mentioned a few dishes available for the children however a little surprised that they did not provide any fresh veggies with the children's lunches despite being the type of place you would expect them to. We don't necessarily expect a specific children's menu just suitable smaller plates from main menu but didn't even sense that was something they particularly want to promote.

The bread and butter, and drinking water provided pre meal were a lovely touch. The bread and the locally produced butter tasted really good.

My husband and I had hake with vierge sauce. The hake was cooked beautifully but the vierge sauce was nice but not really a sauce it was more like hake on a bed of veg, which was nice and fresh but a little bland.

Generally it was a nice lunch and just minor points on the food, our main issue was the we didn't feel overly welcome with the children even though they were well behaved (still found ourselves feeling the need to apologise when paying the bill for the slightest noise). Other small matter there was no baby changing facilities either so that meant changing our youngest in the car.

At the end of the day it's their restaurant and decision on target market just a shame!
