Rex Rattus left this review about The Fox & Goose

Being a Fuller's pub there's no great surprise on the ale front, with London Pride, Oliver's Island, Wise Men (£4.05 a pint), and Jack Frost (almost) on. The barman pulled about a third of a pint of Jack Frost and then asked a colleague if it was on the till yet - it wasn't so they couldn't sell it. But he gave me the third as a "taster" so I guess I more than broke even. Both the Jack Frost, and the Wise Men, were in great nick. Food's available for lunch and dinner of course with sarnies around £6.50 - £7.50, and main courses around £10.50 - £13.00 or so.

It's quite an interesting pub overall, with a bit of a verandah outside, leading into what I would regard as the main bar area at the front. To the left of the central servery there's a doorway leading back to a large room which was quite busy with a birthday party in full swing. The bar counter has a matchboard panelled front; the bar back is a very simple affair but framed by a quartet of bevilled mirrors. The walls throughout seem to have retained their fielded wood panelling, but with that in the large back room having been painted light grey, but with that in the bar area retaining its dark wood colouring. I spotted three fireplaces - a couple in the bar area with one of them having some attractive tiling, and with the one in the back room having a distinctive wooden surround. The curved bays at the front still have what looks like the original fitted bench seating. The rest of the pub's furnished with normal tables and chairs. Of course the place has that pub scourge the fruit machine (or one-armed bandit in old money), plus large TVs and music playing.

There was something of a holiday atmosphere when I dropped in at Thursday lunchtime. The pub still has a fair amount of the traditional pub feel about it. I could have done without the Christmas themed pop music, but then again I am a bah humbug curmudgeon, and I suppose others were enoying it. Overall I liked this pub.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Fox & Goose

Substantial Fuller's roadhouse with 73-bed hotel attached. Two fair-sized bars separated by a central servery, with further seating / dining areas and rear beer garden beyond. There are still various original features in dark wood to admire, and the refurbishment with semi-modern furniture and decor has been sensitively done. Pride, ESB and the seasonal Red Fox (£4.05) available from the total of nine handpumps divided between the two counters.

Malden man left this review about The Fox & Goose Hotel

This is a large Fullers pub with a hotel attached. The pub interior is made up of three main areas, with the bar being in the front section but also accessible from the bigger room beyond. The front bar has a stone floor, a couple of fireplaces including one with a large copper vessel on a hook, a clock and fox picture above. There is some good quality wood panelling in here, the windows are leaded and seating is traditional and including a few benches and a pew style seat. There is also an interesting painting of the pub from 1946 showing how this area has changed. A TV on the end wall was showing some rugby highlights on mute.
The room beyond here has a more modern lighter feel. There is a wooden floor, seating at cushioned armchairs, all a bit functional but there is an elaborate dark wood carved fireplace in here. Continuing on there is a seperate carpeted dining room with tables set.
To the rear there is a fair sized garden area with the usual benches.
I was pleasantly surprised by this place, perhaps I didn't expect too much from a roadside pub adjacent to a major gyratory system, but once inside the front bar you wouldn't think you were in such a location. The service was friendly and genuine, and my ESB was in good shape. Also on offer were Pride, Jack Frost and Front Row, a Six Nations themed special.
I don't know if the restaurant area has a seperate menu, but the bar menu looked fairly priced, eg sandwiches £4-£5, hot baguettes served with chips £6-£7, bangers and mash £7.15, chilli £6.95.
