The Fox

Picture source: Bernard Lamb


 
The Fox was present by 1832 and is now in residential use.
 
From The Good Pub Guide 1983:
Don't come here expecting lavish luxury: part of thie idyllic little hideaway's tremendous charm is its unaffected simplicity, with plain country seats and settles under the low ceilings of the two little rooms, a log-effect electric fire in the old brick hearth, and photographs of the champion dachsunds which the owners bred in the 1950s. At lunchtime in the week you might have the place to yourself, when the old-fashioned garden with its verandah, sturdy wooden seats, stone cherubs, mossy urn and clipped box and hawthorn hedges is splendidly peaceful. There is a climbing-frame on the side lawn. Of course it gets very busy at weekends and in the evenings. Well-kept ABC is tapped from the cask in a back room; fresh-cut sandwiches; fruit machine.
