    Lovey pub environment with friendly staff and good menu selection. Food was good (could of done with more sides with the mains), little blip with drinks order being forgotten but other than that a lovely dinner

    First time at The Fox, and I would definitely return. Food was lovely, just the right size to not feel overfull on completion. Didn't really agree with surcharge being added to the bill, would prefer to add that on myself, but generally a good eating experience.

    The service and staff were outstanding. The Inn was very relaxed and room lovely (especially the huge bath!), and, although the choice was not huge, the food was very tasty. We would definitely return.

    It was a busy day at The Fox so there was slight delay on our order been taken but the staff were all super lovely, apologetic for the delay and very attentive, food was excellent. This pub is in a superb location next to the river Windrush, lovely gardens a real gem tucked away in a gorgeous location on the edge of Great Barrington. Highly recommended.

    Under the management of The Angel, Burford, The Fox is a lot better. However, compared to The Angel the food was average and the ambiance lacking in the restaurant. We’ll continue to visit The Angel, but not The Fox.

    Went for late Sunday lunch and managed to sit in the bar as it was extremely warm outside. It had obviously been very busy but the staff were absolutely brilliant. Extremely helpful and friendly. Food arrived very quickly considering they were so busy. Food swordfish and fish & chips very tasty and well presented and cooked. Really recommend a visit.

    We’ve spent the week in nearby Little Barrington, and with the Fox only a 5 minute stroll away, have been there for lunch, dinner and a pint. The food has been consistently excellent - from a delicious seafood shepherds pie for lunch, to a creative and tasty burrata salad and steak and ale pie for dinner (they do have menu items other than pies, but they are so quintessentially English I couldn’t help myself), to a lovely chocolate and toffee mousse for dessert The inn itself is charming, with a pretty riverside location. The staff are friendly and responsive. I highly recommend this spot for anyone who wants to experience a high quality dining experience in the Cotswolds.

    Food nice, although pricey for the houmous and cauliflower at £17. Offered dessert menu but it never arrived. After 30 minutes I fetched one myself. Breakfast very good but to not offer a milk alternative such as oat or soya was disappointing.

    This was a bit of a find for my birthday. Lovely location and very good service. Menu was small compared to other places but plenty to choose from. If ever in area agin would go back. Nice touch a birthday wish and a glass of sparking made me feel special. Thank you for a lovely evening

    Drove past this delightful pub by accident and liked the look of it and it’s riverside location, so we decided to give it a try and soo glad we did ! Although the menu was limited the food was delicious! And not cheap but still worth the money as it was that good .. staff friendly and attentive however took a while to obtain bill at the end but overall fantastic experience will be going back soon

    Food not of good quality or quantity…….would never recommend this pub, shame because a very nice location! £17 for a few bits of cauliflower and a some hommous. Charged £8 for service…..there was very little of that! No toliet paper in the loos or towels to dry hands on. When we asked for tap water we were told to walk outside and go around the back to help ourselves. When I got there there was none left. Generally very badly organised! Too many excellent other local pubs nearby to bother visiting again.

    The Fox at BarringtonResponded on July 25, 2022We are sorry you did not enjoy your experience, as you can see from other reviews we normally have very good feedback. We had an exceptionally busy day when you dined, which may be why someone had not managed to restock the toilets. We absolutely don’t recognise your comment about tap water! We bring water to the tables with a jug and glasses - I can only think someone thought you were referring to the water we have in dog bowls by the back door!

    Read good things since reopening, it had been taken over and refurbished but to be honest the dining experience, in all areas, was sadly underwhelming. The very rural location overlooking the river is beautiful and what they’ve done with the building during the renovation is lovely. Unfortunately the menu, food nor service is really anywhere up to standard for £50 per head, excluding wine. Not a lot more to say really, apart from we won’t be returning anytime soon.

    Delicious, freshly prepared food. The pork tenderloin was melt in the mouth and the fish and chips, especially the crispy batter,was amazing. Don’t have dessert as too full, but the menu was enticing. Glorious setting for the weather we’re currently having, a must destination even if it’s for just a drink.
