Such a shame - pleasant pub, nice decor, but this pub only wants 50 years plus in.
Younger clients soon get sick of 60s/70s music and go elsewhere. DJ isn't allowed to play current music (his words not mine).
Landlady rules the roost, what she says goes, not what the customers want.
Shame, could be a cracking place to go. Guess it is if you're 50 years and over.

Best pint of traditional beer in Sheffield. Absolution & Pale Rider are not to be missed.
Peter Williams must have personal reasons for not liking the landlord, but all of his beers are second to none!

The food was delish. Pity the weekly offer isn't on any more otherwise I'd visit more often in the day. The burgers are huge and totally yummy!

This is an excellent restaurant. Beautiful fish, fresh vegetables, puddings to die for. Staff friendly. You need to book.

I went there for Mother's Day dinner last week. I had Sunday roast beef, it was absolutely beautiful! The beef was so tasty, home-made mash and Yorkshire puds, plenty of veg.
I took family back there this week for them to try it. They were very impressed! For £4.49 it's well worth it. Surroundings are very pleasant and very clean.

I visited this pub after hearing that the entertainment and food were wonderful. I visited the pub on a Thursday evening and had the mixed grill, always a tester of the quality of the food.
To my delight I can only describe the fayre set up to me as fantastic. The meat was cooked to my medium rare perfection and was a monster of a dish. I could not possibly eat all of the dish so my dog ate like king of the manor that night. I enjoyed my tea that much I thought I would have another couple of pints, they had Black Sheep on cask and it was beautiful.
A skiffle band then turned up and were brilliant! The most fun in ages. The staff were friendly and polite, not like it used to be.
I am going back up for St. Patrick's night, as another band visits this rural gem. There are not many pubs like this left I am going to make it my local.

Today we had lunch here. Excellent food, generous portions and excellent value meal deal. 2 courses for £6.99 plus a drink. Service was good too. Very pleasant staff.
Will definitely visit again soon.

I was not very happy with the service here. Whilst not busy there were only 2 people serving. Two of our table's food came 10 minutes before everyone else, meaning they had finished their meal while I waited in total 40 minutes for ours.
It was not 'smothered in BBQ sauce' as stated on the menu, so I asked for some more BBQ sauce, which never came, resulting in an average meal with poor service.

We've been going to the Fox House for Sunday lunch, intermittently, for quite some time. When we first went we thought "wow what a find". Sadly, over the last year or two it has gone downhill. Seems there was a change of owner/management some time back and it's never been the same since. We skipped going for quite a while then gave it another go when it seemed to have improved and the food we had was better, though the place was almost empty.
Last time we went, several weeks ago, I had fish and found several bones in it. I complained but was told that it does state on the menu that fish can have bones. This isn't a good enough excuse in my opinion and they didn't even apologise. My daughter is a chef and she told that bones are supposed to be cut out.
We tried again today but were sadly disappointed. My friend had grilled ham with a friend egg on top, which came with chips and a slice of pineapple. The ham wasn't pink, it was a kind of grey colour and the chips looked like yesterday's warmed up.
I had "Shropshire Chicken chicken breast stuffed with Shropshire blue cheese, spinach and fig on roasted root vegetable risotto £10.95".
It came with a little pot of "gravy", which I discard because it was cold and had no recognisable taste. The risotto was cold and had a sort of "rancid" taste, the roast vegetables (mostly carrots) were soggy and cold with no signs of having being roasted. The piece of chicken was hot and okay.
When a waitress brightly asked if everything was okay I told that apart from being cold and not tasting very nice nice, everything was fine. She said she was sorry and would see if the bill could be reduced. However, the problem was not her fault. Things were not made better by the fact that we had waited an hour for our meal to arrive! The bill was not reduced but we said nothing and left vowing to give the place a miss for another year.
Seems to me that the management does not care about the clientele because on neither occasion did they come to apologise. It's not like they change the complete menu every day. Main menu dishes should always taste the same and be of the same quality. Problems and complaints should be dealt with not ignored.
We won't be going again and I won't be recommending it to anyone who cares about consistency of quality in their food.
