A very quaint pub, idyllically set opposite the village pond. A large car park with 30+ spaces and access for disabled patrons.
There is a large beer garden with a children's play area and a covered patio for those balmy summer evenings.
The interior is true to a pub of its era (circa.1850) serving traditional home cooked food alongside local and national real ales.
Thiss isn't bad at all.
The setting is rather idyllic, opposite the pond, willow trees and quiet spot.
There is a large beer garden, and the pub itself is quite charming.
Have enjoyed a drink or two here.
The food served here is lovely. I have had the Steak and Ale pie many times and really enjoy it! The staff are friendly and there is a little garden for the kids.
The beers are nice and a good selection too.
The only down side was on a visit i made, there was dog mess in the garden.
I have visited the Fox and Goose on many occassions in the past but my experience last night has caused me to question whether it is worth visiting again.
The qualtiy of the food was poor. I had what should have been "lightly peppered" tuna steak. However, the taste of the fish was completely overpowered by the vast amount of pepper dust used. One can only question why if the fish was fresh was there a need to mask the flavour by the use of such large amounts of peppercorns.
Our friend had an even worse experience. Her choice was venison sausages but they certainly had the appearance and taste of sausages which were mainly pork. She had one half of the three sausages. Upon complaint regarding the sausages the attitude of the landlady was unacceptable. She said that nobody had complained about the sausages before and there was nothing wrong with them. No apology and no suggestion that she would check with the supplier to see if a mistake could have been made on this occassion. All she was interested in was whether her waitress had checked during the meal whether all was ok - the poor young girl had not and given the attitude of the landlady one can only wonder how she was subsequently treated. Of course, given the attitude of the landlady, even had the poor girl checked halfway through the meal the outcome would have been the same - she was adamant that there was nothing wrong with her product although it was noted she didn't try or test it herself to see if she might just have been wrong!
In this day and age the customer should expect good quality food from all pubs especially at the prices charged here - the test of a good establishment is how it deals with complaints. In this case the Fox and Goose completely fails the test. It is a shame as I have had several good meals there in the past with no cause to complain but on this experience clearly the landlady has no concern nor desire to have satisfied and happy customers.
