In 2014, The Fox was taken over  by Husband and Wife team Victoria King and Gavin Hunt, who also run The Lodge in North Tuddenham.

Completely redesigned, but keeping the traditional beamed ceilings and open fire, this brings a fresh and electric feel and still keeps the Country Pub origins..

This is a transformation of an old village pub that has been done with great taste and imagination. Its my local and I worried we might lose more than we gained - no way! The front bar is still a bar, real ale is still on tap (although the pumps have gone) and the decor is a huge improvement and rather modern. Biggest change is the back: dump all the fiddly little rooms and open up the entire back of the pub to its excellent garden - and add a new bar at the back, easing service pressure. There is also a very charming restaurant. It re-opened on March 1 and on the following Sunday we had lunch and it was truly excellent - in fact we re back this Sunday with guests! Hooray and thanks for Vikki and Gavin.
