We were looking forward to ordering lamb shanks but had run out so had roast chicken instead which was very good

Dating back to the early 18th century, The Fox – Caterham enjoys a uniquely beautiful location in Coulsdon Common, on the spectacular North Downs. It welcomes with classic oak and brick furnishings, and the cosy hearth-fire and al fresco beer garden can be enjoyed with seasonally-prepared British pub cuisine.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Fox menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Fox ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In Surrey, The Fox is only 6 minutes’ drive from Caterham Train Station.

    Cosy Sunday roast enjoyed by us all in front of roaring log fires. Friendly staff.

    Service was very good, atmosphere was good.

    We were sat in a window which after about 30 mins we all realised was a very cold position. Even with a radiator behind us the cold air coming through the glass was chilling. We pulled the curtains, put our coats around our shoulders, scarves round necks! The meals were OK nothing special,thank goodness we had the 25% off as to pay the asking price would have been robbery! When the bill arrived they hadn't taken of the 25% we had to draw it to their attention, they said that when it was booked through Bookatable they are not aware of the 25% discount. The mini puddings with a coffee are good value and as we are a group who only get together once a year we really come along to catch up on news, the food is secondary.

    We all enjoyed our time at the Fox Pub on coulsdon common. We were taken straight to our table where there was a roaring open fire just across from us. The waitresses could not have been any nicer. There were just a couple of things off the menu but that did not dampen our experience there. Drinks were served nicely chilled and dinner was served nice and hot. There is a good variety of meals and drinks to choose from at the Fox. From start to finish it was a very enjoyable time. I would definitely recommend a visit to the Fox.

    This was our 2nd visit this week. 1st was last sat. Brilliant meal, my
    Fillet steak was just as I asked, blue, it melted in my mouth. Only downside was the amount of food on the floor, a hoover was needed. Last night, different friends, my meal was lovely but they had steak that was not cooked well. I have to say the staff were lovely and one of the meals was taken of the bill. Would we go back, YES. The chef is very good, but it was unfortunate that both steaks were over cooked for how they asked but everything else was really good.

    Food was good service was virtually non-existent. Closest you'll find to a self service restaurant. Although there was a waitress, she disappeared most of the time and I had to place my order at the bar. Place seemed somewhat disorganised!

    2 adults and 1 kid dining, good child menu which was reasonably priced, good food and great value

  • ((((* 17 October 2016 by Margaret Lloyd from Croydon

    It was a very pleasant location and the fires were very welcome as it was a damp evening. The décor is good and the service was quick . The menu had a good variety ( the dish two of us chose was not fully available) but the alternative was nice. It was easy to book on line. Only one comment - the flagstone floo looked as if it was in need of a proper clean.
