Serving the best of local produce
Local chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix will open The Fox Inn this December. Nestled in the Dorset countryside, just four miles from Beaminster, the pub will be open 6 days a week and open all day.
Enjoy food and drink sourced from the South West in the warm and welcoming surroundings of our 17th Century Grade II listed pub. Settle in by the open fire with bar snacks and a real ale or dine on locally sourced food and drink in the Garden Room with a wine list that champions British winemakers.
Take in the panoramic views of fields and rolling hills from the outdoor seating area.
Mark will launch his new ‘Kitchen Library’ experience when covid regulations allows with guest chefs hosting ticketed dinners in this exclusive space.
We are open 6 days a week
Tuesday to Saturday 11am-10pm
Sunday 11am – 10pm (last lunch booking 3.30pm. Sunday evenings a one dish menu is available only)
Working closely with farmers and gamekeepers, Mark’s menu offers something for everyone with local meat and game dishes, some hearty pub classics, fresh fish from the South West Coast and the all-important Sunday roast.View the menus
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
