Full house for lunch on Saturday, and we were coming in towards the end of lunch. A few things sold out, a shame but a good sign, right? My son had spaghetti from the kids menu and the sauce did not appear fresh. Very sweet and topped up with large chunks of cheddar. My son had one bite and left... More

This place is my idea of a perfect, old country pub with plenty of interesting historical facts. It's in the picturesque village of Chalton with backdrop of the Southdowns. It's a lovely building outside and in. Lovely old fire places and old timbers. There is a bar and an A la carte menu to choose from. Great choice for all... More

Whenever I have dined at the Fox Goes Free it has been a pleasant experience. There is a wide choice on the menu and the food is excellent. The restaurant is full of character, as is the bar area in which you can dine. In the summer you can eat outside(weather permitting). The view and environment is beautiful. Thoroughly recommend.

The great charm of this pub is the setting. It's in what feels like an old farm building nestling in the South Downs. Its garden is flint-walled and overlooks a sweeping sheep field and is a wonderful place to enjoy a pint over lunch - if the weather's right. The menu is good, reasonably priced and varied and the staff... More

Lovely gastropub in West Sussex. It can be a little cramped in terms of seating but the food, beer and wine selection make up for it.

Visited with visiting family after the restaurant had closed fir lunch, but were still able to get a delicious salad and sandwiches, served by friendly staff. As ever, the atmosphere was friendly and relaxing and everything as could be wished. Family members very impressed

We visited the "fox goes free" couple days before Christmas. Christian and his team provided friendly welcome and attentive service throughout the evening, nothing was too much. Food hot and well presented with daily specials on offer. Log fire cracking away in this traditional pub/restaurant, very popular so do book. What made the evening was there monthly live music star... More
