Serving the best of local produce
Local chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix opened The Fox Inn in December 2020. Nestled in the Dorset countryside, just four miles from Beaminster, the pub is open Tuesday to Sunday.

Take in the beautiful views of fields and rolling hills from the outdoor seating area.

Working closely with local brewers, a good selection of beers from the South West are always featured alongside guest beers and a seasonal cocktail list showcasing local spirits such as Black Cow pure milk vodka and Julian Temperley’s Somerset Cider Brandy. The wine list reads as a charming tour of the local vineyards including Lyme Bay Winery and boutique vineyard, Castlewood who we have worked closely with to create our very own Devon Minnow Bacchus.View the menu
