The Fox Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
27 Enstone Road, Middle Barton, Nr. Chipping Norton, OX7 7BL
Set in the pretty village of Middle Barton, this country inn offers a warm welcome with its low wooden beams, cosy seating and friendly staff. The menu features traditional English meals at a reasonable price, all made with locally sourced ingredients, while chalkboards display daily specials created using current seasonal ingredients. I savoured a perfectly cooked succulent sirloin steak with fresh hand-cut chips, battered onion rings, mushrooms, tomatoes and garden peas, while my partner enjoyed a flavoursome gammon steak, topped with a delicious free-range egg along with all the trimmings. We finished off with an indulgent five-layer chocolate truffle cake and a brandy snap basket overflowing with strawberries and cream. In warmer weather you can dine alfresco in the garden and, when the colder evenings draw in, you can settle by the open fire or in the dining room.
