We were directed to this pub/restaurant by road signs on the A40....which was about a mile off the main drag.The location is stunning...the River Windrush runs by the rear garden and the pub itself is just outside the pretty village of Great Barrington.We entered at about 3pm today and ordered the trio of sausages with onion gravy and real mash...

Evening dinner - last time we were in the area we thought we would give it a try. Was okay, but thought it was a bit expensive for the food on offer.

By chance dropped into the perfect English pub in early September. Not a planned meal but ended up with a light supper. Good portions of excellent simple food very well presented. Beer at £3 per pint from Donningtons!! But the special extra was the excellent, competent and friendly staff. Will be back to stay in their rooms overlooking the river.... More

Spent a fab couple of hours playing dominoes and drinking rather nice Merlot. In fact 3 glasses 😊 Friendly staff and good simple food. Will definitely return, especially in better weather so we can enjoy the wonderful riverside setting

You would be hard pushed to find a better situated pub than the Fox, set alongside the river Windrush in a fabulous Cotswold village is about the best you can say about it. Nice table alongside the river sadly spoilt by the smell of sewage, fairly ordinary food straight from the cash an carry and at top heavy prices. Landlord... More

Phoned to change from Sunday (father's day) to Friday due to other plans and the bloke on the phone was rude, it sounded like it was too much trouble to get the book to change it, actually the whole phone call made me feel uncomfortable. I didn't want to go any further with the phone call so said to cancel,... More
