Outside the Fox

The Fox is Twickenham's oldest pub and has been in Church Street since the seventeenth century, but its recent refurbishment has turned it into a twenty-first century watering hole and restaurant. It is now a gastropub that caters to the needs of the local community. All ages and sizes, from children to seniors, and their dogs are welcome. Highchairs are available, as are baby changing facilities. There is a children's menu and water and doggie biscuits are provided for your four-legged friends.

The Fox Restaurant

You can enjoy a traditional bar snack served between midday and 10pm every day. These include devilled white bait, a pint of prawns, or a ploughman's washed down with one of seven hand pumped ales, some of them local.

Lunch can be enjoyed up until 5pm in the bright and airy restaurant, where the glass doors can be opened on to the street and the garden when the weather is fine. You can also eat outside in the beer garden, with its specially covered wet weather area. You could choose from fish and chips, burgers, steak, pasta, sandwiches or panini.

In the evening, you could order Cumberland sausage, fish, steak (beef or venison) or slow roast pork belly, but try to leave room for a traditional dessert like treacle sponge with custard or a British cheese board. Wines are available from both old and new worlds and cost no more than 25 a bottle, as well as being available by the glass.

You can also enjoy a small party for a maximum of 15 people in the Oak Room. For 35 a head you can be tempted with potted mackerel or pigeon breast, a shared main course such as whole suckling pig, roast beef, lamb or venison, or a roast of three birds. Puds include crumble or treacle tart with custard.

Food is cooked freshly every day and the chef can accommodate vegetarians as well as carnivores. The menu changes with the seasons, as do some of the beers. The kitchen closes at 10pm daily.

If you love music, the Fox serves this up live three times a week. You will find yourself entertained by local musicians, rock groups and young talent. Even the non-live music is a popular mix of oldies and Northern Soul.
