Sunday Lunch
We really care about the food and wine we serve at the Fox and Grapes which is why we won a Catey Menu of the Year award and have earned a Bib Gourmand. You can also find us listed in Harden's, Zagat's, the Michelin Guide, the Time Out Eating & Drinking Guide and the Good Pub Guide amongst others.

Alongside our Chef's Seasonal Dishes we offer a selection of classic English pub food such as fish and chips and that perennial favourite: the Burger. For a real treat, we recommend you try one of our succulent steaks cooked to perfection in our Josper Oven.

Fox & Grapes is a great little gastro pub, food was top notch and the best roast around! Much more food-y than the other pubs and a great ambience to boot.

We had a lovely table in the corner of this gorgeous pub. Despite it being a busy Sunday, service was great and the food was unbelievable! One of the best roasts I’ve had in a long time!!

We’ve had 3 ‘big’ celebrations here over the last 5 years and many more casual visits.
We’ve always enjoyed the fab food, the attentive, engaging but not intrusive staff, and the atmosphere which is warm and friendly.
Thank you all!

This is the third time we've dined at The Fox and Grapes, the Sunday roast (lamb) was delicious, as it has been each time we've been. The service staff were cheerful and attentive which meant we were in, fed, and on our way home in 45 minutes. The table was booked out for 2 hours I believe but, on this occasion, we were keener to be home, so the speed of service was a real plus.

High quality food and friendly service from all. Low ceiling amplified the noise levels, however the multigenerational groups and variety of dogs gave it a family festive atmosphere.

Soup too thick and not hot. Main course, in my opinion, was the size of a starter and the scallops were over cooked and too salty.
Was offered to return and get a 20% discount . Will not be using this offer .

Perfect for a quiet mid-week lunch. Sea bass and skate wing were both beautifully cooked and Bloody Mary was spot on! Will be back to this fab little local place.

Been coming for many years but the prices have gone up so much may have to scale back visits. Pub lunch for 2 is now at least £100.

I found the lamb kofta too dry and bland. The aubergine dish was missing the broccoli. Service and location fine

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with two of my nieces and the pooch. The girls devoured their burgers and I enjoyed a kid’s size fish & chips (which I still didn’t finish!)
Great food, lovely service and very welcoming to both dogs and humans!

Underwhelming menu - hadn’t changed from 2 months ago when I was disappointed with the choice then but thought I’d try one more time based on previous visits admittedly some years ago. My son had the steak and asked for it to be cooked rare but it was definitely medium very uninspiring just a steak on the plate without any green garnish. I had the sea bass which was dry but the vegetables it came with were nice. We won’t be going back.

Food was middle of the road, it used to be better. The place was full of dogs which kept on barking - spoiling the atmosphere by the noise.
