In the hometown of the Concorde, The Fox Den in Bristol has old world charm in the face of modern engineering. The cobbled stone design and cosy oaken hearth aid the rustic atmosphere, and the food can be savoured from the al fresco beer garden in summer.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Fox Den 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 Den ‘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.

The Fox Den is only 15 minutes’ walking from Bristol Parkway Train Station, or a 10-minute drive from the city centre.

    Lovely staff and great service. Very nice cosy atmosphere - festive but not overdone. The food was good - the only thing was that the lentil sauce on my sea bass was too dark and strong for such a delicate fish. Also, I would have preferred the prawns/lobster in a glass - but call me old-fashioned! Otherwise everything was great and I would certainly visit again.

    We have dined here every couple of months or so for a number of years. Overall the experience is less good. It is hard to pin down a specific reason for this, rather there have been several small detrimental changes. Our impression is of fewer waiting staff and longer waits for drinks and food. There are more frequent examples of menu items not being available. Not withstanding the above the servers are generally cheerful and helpful and there are some good dishes on the menu. The wine list is good.

    Usually the food we have had has been excellent. The fish cakes this time were disappointing. Not sure if there was much fish and they were very dry.

    Starters - Broad bean, spring onion and pecorino croquettes with pea, broad bean and pulled ham garnish was perfectly acceptable. The prawn and lobster cocktail was "very nice".
    Fish and chips perfect comfort food after stressful drive down M6 and M5.
    Server was friendly.
