Foods good but the managers are dreadful; rude and off hand purely because we were a party of yougsters even though we were very calm and quiet

Up in BSE for a long weekend with a wedding, we came here for lunch, the food was very good but my GK IPA wasn't

I was in a very good mood and so drank it, and ordered two more

The first was almost flat with just some suds and tasted not bad but not right, the second was fair as a pancake like it had been sat under the bar for an hour, the third was almost ok, proper head and altogether more like what I'd expect (I don't GK IPA much in London although it was a fav from my youngers days as an Essex boy)

in short I wouldn't drink there again, having three such different pints brought to says to me the bar service is rubbish

as others said, it crossed the line into being more of a restaurant than a pub

Fourteen of us visited the Fox, mainly for the food. As the previous comments it is really a restaurant, which serves a good pint of GK. The food is very good value and vegetarians are catered for with a good selection of different dishes. Excellent pub, staff very good, the waiter was quite a comedian, we will be back...........

Nice pub but more Costa Coffee than a beer establishment. Clearly been refurbished tastefully but the prices of the beer seem to be upped to cover the cost of paints. Usual range of GK beers, the H&H Olde Trippe was good but no Abbot - how can you not have Abbot in BSE. I would have preferred to go to the Old Cannon - better a poncy pint of OC than a poncy pint of GK.

I have been using The Fox Inn for just over four years now and have dined there on numerous occasions. The food is of a very high standard, so is the service by the staff and the beer on tap is excellent. The wine selection is excellent extremely varied and of good value for money. The menu changes regularly on the boards, so there is always a good choice of food, even if you are vegetarian. As the food is locally sourced, very fresh and high quality it may be that you have to wait slightly longer before it arrives at the table. None the less the wait is well worth it. The building is very oldie world with a charm all to itís self. The interior is oak beamed, the lighting is good and the whole dining experience is delightful. The interior is also very tidy and clean, with no odour contributable to stale beer. I would recommend this venue to anyone that enjoys good food, wine, with a very gratifying atmosphere.
