Traditional Pub Food
DescriptionWelcome to The Smart Fox Inn. A visit to the pub doesn't have to add up to two pints and a bag of crisps. A meal out enjoying first class food and fine wine hasn't got to be a formal experience. With real ales from Hall & Woodhouse and a wine list that will please the most discerning of palates, experience something different.
Here the food is fresh, cooked to order and always Island sourced where possible.
You can dine in our pub area or in our newly opened restaurant at the rear - both are non-smoking. Wherever you sit, you'll receive the same attentive service.
Dean and Jan Hopkinson purchased the pub (then known as The Snooty Fox) in October 2005 with a goal of creating their ideal pub where they would want to go and eat, drink and be merry. This meant creating a relaxed non-smoking environment serving traditional ales, lagers, wines and spirits along with serving high quality food comparable with the best restaurants.
The Snooty Fox closed on 31st January 2006 and after a six week refurbishment including the installation of a solid oak bar, traditional wooden floor, new kitchen appliances and the creation of a smart new restaurant The Smart Fox Inn opened its doors on the 13th February 2006. With its wooden beams & floors, wonky walls, low ceilings and a real fire place this 16th Century Inn provides a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a fabulous four course meal, a simple snack or just a pint or three.
