Bringing together consistently good food, pleasing atmosphere and comfortable service the Fox constitutes an excellent refuge from the working week's frustrations, the randomness of the railways, the waywardness of the political classes, or indeed that minor domestic blip... We are frequent visitors, both as a couple and for family get-togethers. The staff are efficient and friendly - which seems to... More

A rarity, lunch out with my wife on a Saturday and child free for a change. We had "not-the-best" experience at The Bulmer Fox previously but decided to give it a second chance as we all know that chefs can have an off-day... Sadly the whole experience was completely uninspiring. Nice surroundings but for us it is about the menu... More

We recently visited the Bulmer Fox, whilst on a Time Out Country walk. We arrived at 1.30pm and were not sure if we would make the cut off of 2pm for food. The staff were so friendly, they made sure that we were fed - I had an amazing risotto - and that we knew where we off to next.... More

We've been to the Fox many times over the years and always impressed by the atmosphere, the wide menu and excellent value. Henry makes it happen, his cheerful friendly and relaxed style is what the Fox is all about. It's no booking (but he has made an exception for a large party) but never much of a wait, and the...

Had a lovely lunch here. I like the feel of the place, the menu which changes regularly, and the friendly staff. The food was very good and the bill very reasonable. I've been here quite a few times over the years and it's never been disappointing - would very much recommend it. Only snags though are you can't book and... More

We visit this great restaurant every 5 or 6 weeks to meet friends at a halfway point. No reservation system, just turn up and grab a table. Fairly swift turnover so never had to wait long for a seat for the four of us. Food is better than pub grub, with a decent selection of meats, fish and veggies. The... More

We thought we would try this pub / restaurant out after a friend had visited about a year ago. Ample parking onsite and very clean and well presented inside. They don't take phone bookings for tables so it's turn up and take a chance. We got seated with a table of 4 no probs. They had dishes of the day... More

Went for lunch, didn't have to book a table. The restaurant is modern, comfortable, spacious and traditional. Food is ordered at the bar, the service was prompt, food arrived in good time. Nice touch was the bread and olive oil while we waited. We had the roast chicken and a traditional burger. Both we pipping hot, nice portion (not too... More

Great staff serving a good menu, it's children friendly so a fine place to take the family. You can't book but they have plenty of tables both inside and out. We will be back
