Restaurant at The Fox & Goose

Armscote, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 8DD

One of two places in the area, the other is Embargo actually in Stratford, both owned by an enterprising lady called Sue Gray. The Fox and Goose is in Armscote, a pretty village of a style typical in Warwickshire, and consists of one third bar - but a proper one with roaring log fires in the winter, and newspapers to read while eating you snacks and drinks - and two thirds restaurant. Many customers comment on the service, which is not of the normal bang it down and walk away variety so prevalent in gastropubs, instead it is friendly, helpful but not over-familiar, and they seemed really concerned that you get exactly what you want. The menu is chalked up on a blackboard, and you order at the bar.

Dishes could include: pumpkin and chilli soup; ballotine of rabbit and chicken or goat's cheese stack with aubergine and tomato to start. Mains could include their famous steak and ale pie or pork and chive sausage with mustard mash and excellent gravy, as well as more sophisticated offerings. Great roasts on a Sunday, normally lamb and beef, with wonderful crispy roast potatoes.

REVIEWS OF Restaurant at The Fox & Goose

Paul Carroll (25 May 2009)

The best meal we have had in a very long time. The portions were extremely generous so much so that we were very concerned that they can't be making any profit. This place is well worth the drive out of Stratford.

Mike (25 May 2008)

A promising evening was ruined for us at The Fox and Goose. It was a mediocre meal for two of us but for the other two, it was poor and neither ate much. When the waiter cleared the plates he commented on why there was so much left, we said that it was because it was not very nice. We ordered beef lasagne but it had lot of sauce, very little lasagne and no beef. The waiter apologised and said we'd not be charged for that but later in keeping with his bosses' instructions, we were asked to pay because we didn't complain during the meal. Now when he asked if the meal was okay, the lasagne eaters were just starting, so had not realised the lack of beef, and indeed pasta. The waiter offered the refund, we did not ask for it. It was disappointing to see his bosses behave that way. The location is nice and it promised so much, but failed to deliver. The food was average and expensive.
