Christmas celebrations

December has arrived and Christmas is in the air!  Yes things will be a little different this year but we still want to bring the festivities to the Fox in the best way that we can.  Christmas is still going to be a time to relax, have fun and catch up with friends and family, just on a slightly smaller scale!  So why not do all of this over a delicious meal?  With our festive guest ales, mulled wine and Christmas treats, the Fox as always will have its Christmas sparkle in the atmosphere!

We are happily taking festive bookings under the new tier 2 rules of up to 6 people from one household or bubble inside and up to 6 people from mixed households outside. Best thing is to drop us email on or give us a ring on 0151 648 7685 and we’ll do our very best to try and accommodate you during the festivities…please note the festive menu can’t be booked online.

Our Christmas menu will run from Wednesday 2nd of December to Wednesday 30th December 2020 (excluding Christmas Day) alongside our normal menu.
