Visited with my wife for the first time since recent refurb and was very impressed with alterations, they have managed to fit in more seating but nowhere is it cramped. The menu is very impressive with meals you do not normally find on pub menus, even the kids menu has huge choices, the staff are very friendly and attentive and... More

Went to the fox Friday night, the place has only been back open a week!!! How can it go so down hill on service. 8 bar staff only 1 serving, the others just talking to friends over the bar!!! The manager was lazy he didn't even acknowledge any waiting customers. Had 1 pint, waited to be served for a second... More

Went for a preview lunch today with my husband and daughter. A lot of money has been spent here and it looks fabulous. The food was first class and the Staff were very attentive. We are so lucky to have retained this pub/eatery when so many are closing down. Well done to all for a very successful preview session. Cannot... More

I would say that this place is ok. The beers are ok, the staff are friendly. What is not so good is the constant cloud of smoke by every door. We have had a few meals hear but they were ok. Nothing more. It's Cheap, cheerful and the menu is what you would expect from this type of place.

Came here on a weekday for lunch. Good choice on the menu but opted for a club sandwich with sweet potato fries. It was huge and included a fried egg. Really enjoyed the meal and great value for money. A roomy pub with lots of areas and a good sized beer garden.

Unless you want to be ripped off don't eat here, badly cooked and the garden looked like a war zone. Payed £1.79 for an extra bowl of chips that only contained 13 greasy chips.

We often call in here to save cooking at home and about 2 months ago the menu changed. During the change a fish pie was added and for the first few weeks was a delight to eat - full of chunks of fish and very flavoursome. That was when the pie was made in the Fox's kitchen. Now the pies... More

Came in on a quiet Monday lunchtime for something quick and simple. Ordered a cod and chips and the steak burger from the 2 for £12 section and an 8oz gammon steak. Price wise, nothing to complain about. Burger arrived in two broken pieces that looked as if they were cooked roughly 10 minutes before it was served, with a... More

Another old favourite that really disappointed today. It was a lovely Saturday and we called in for a quick lunch. The pub was empty and surprisingly so was the garden. That spoke volumes. The place is dingy and scruffy. The food was mediocre and little of it. My curry was tasty with adequate rice and chips but the chicken curry... More
