Quinno _ left this review about The Fox

Unexpected revisit. COVID meant we ended-up in the small characterful rear bar which has a traditional 1940’s feel. Four pretty samey ales on the go; Ringwood Best, Andwell King John, West Berks GoB and Hogs Back TEA (NBSS 3.5). The Rothaus is still available, though noticed too late! Still a very good place with good cask, but of beer variety might have helped this time.

November 2013
Wonderfully well-maintained building both inside and out. The impressive trellis-arch entrance gives way to three(!) separate and exquisitely-maintained garden areas including a kids play zone. The interior consists of two rooms, to the right for posh dining behind a door and the left mainly for drinking (if a little small for all the punters that were in doing just that). Four ales offered at 3.20pp; Doom Bar, West Berks Good Old Boy, Three Castles Saxon Archer and Brakspear Ordinary. The quality of my West Berks was good (though over-cold) and the Saxon Archer was a superb drop at a better temperature. There was also a gigantic Rothaus Pils ceramic font – I couldn’t resist giving it a go and for £2 a half got a pretty good German lager in a rather sexy branded glass which I had to try hard not to swipe. Given the location and ambience, prices were surprisingly cheap for the drink. Features of note in the main bar include a wood burning stove and a large glass case of bottled spirit miniatures. The covered patio area for smokers was a cut above the usual and afforded a nice view over the adjacent wheat field. All-in-all, this is a lovely place and I’d happily pop back. Rated 9

Impossible to find, look at the little white sign posts in the village, The Fox is included ... Pub one side of building, restaurant the other. Food and beer excellent, Garden incredible ...
