Positive Reviews

Lovely rooms with extra touches

Guests are complimentary about the standard of the rooms at the Fat Fox Inn. Cleanliness and comfort seem to come as standard. Plus, there are nice extra touches such as high-end toiletries and chocolate treats on the hospitality trays. Since the rooms are located in a different room to the pub, you can expect a quiet stay.

Friendly and relaxed staff

Reviews of this property suggest that you'll find the staff is friendly and welcoming and go a long way to creating a relaxed vibe during your stay. The staff, especially the chef, seems to take great pride in creating a nice ambience that guests love to experience time and time again.

Cosy, traditional pub with great dining

Guests describe the pub part of the Fat Fox Inn as offering great food. The breakfast is good, as is the pub menu. You can expect the dishes available to reflect in-season produce and, as a result, guests frequently comment on the freshness of the food.

Negative Reviews

Very occasional complaints

Comments that are less than favourable are few and typically relate to what seems like one-off issues. One guest mentioned that there was no hot water, another found the lights in the rooms were temperamental and a few others encountered issues such as a disappointing meal. That said, such problems are rare and guests typically rate all aspects of the Fat Fox Inn highly.
