Recently (May 2011) went for dinner. Very well presented menu at reasonable prices.We had steak & kidney pudding & chips. Not very good for the diet but extremely satisfying, my wife had coronation prawn with salad and a large creme brulee which she said was gorgeous. Even though it was a Thursday evening it was packed and we were lucky after a wait to get a table.Good draught beer. Recommend booking if eating.
This is a well run Brunning & Price pub set in the countryside with ample car park and lovely open views at the rear over their garden. They are building a huge wooden structure in tanalised timber with pitched roof for smokers in the beer garden which will spoil the view. A series of linked dining areas, we picked the one with the only open fire in a huge fireplace with mirror above. Several stripped pine, oak tables and a mix of chairs on a beautifully polished parquet floor with rugs. The friendly staff served our very quick lunch chosen from their light bites menu. I chose a poached egg on roasted root vegetables which looked like yesterday's (Sunday) roast reconstituted! and my partner had pork pie with salad. The barman provided the story behind the unusual arched 'nissen-hut' styled ceiling in the room with the fire. When renovating and extending the house prior to converting into a pub, they stripped back the lowered ceiling to put in the electrics to find this marvelous ceiling and decided to make a feature of it. The pub takes its name from the old Fox pub opposite, (now a house). Well kept ales.
