This week the skies across Oxfordshire have been lit up with fireworks, the village of Barrington was no exception. And what do you need after a good light show, a warming and hearty dinner – that’s exactly what you can expect from The Fox Inn in Great Barrington.
On a dark night, Tom and I didn’t really get to appreciate the Fox’s brilliant riverside location, but inside there’s a snug fire place, a well stocked bar and plenty of chatty locals. Choosing a cosy corner, we deliberated over the expansive menu filled with the favourite dishes of the Great British public.
Tom and I both chose a main from the specials, steak and kidney suet pudding with mash potatoes, and I went for brie, spinach, chestnut and cranberry wellington. Both were delicious and extremely filling. So by the time we shared a bowl of sweet potato fries as an appetizer and a couple of Donnington ales, we were ready for a food induced slumber.
We were just too full for dessert, but a couple of out of towners tucked in to a splendid looking roly poly! The Fox is also known for its oysters which is pretty splendid for landlocked Oxfordshire. And I’ll leave you with this…
When you go anywhere in the world and people ask what is ‘GREAT’ about ‘BRITAIN’ invariably one of the main answers will be ‘The Great British Pub’
We at the Fox have pledged to primarily serve that social responsibility first – being a pub! – The Fox Great Barrington
