Love this place. It's a half way meeting point for me and my friends. Although it's always busy (especially on a Sunday when we meet) we're never rushed. We're left to relax and chat and eat. The staff are lovely and always have time for you.

On the grounds of the old Sparke House, The Stretton Fox boasts fantastic orchard gardens, al fresco seating, country views and serves well-loved British pub cuisine. The classic Victorian brickwork on the outside conceals a classy interior, with an ornate, white hearth, mirrors and rustic oaken beams.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Stretton 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 Stretton 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.

With its beautiful gardens and country surroundings, The Stretton Fox is just 10 minutes’ drive to Warrington.

    All Four of my party thourghly enjoyed dining at the Fox. We were all first timers with you and were very impressed with everything. The facility is very cosy and welcoming. Your staff could not be faulted, and made us feel welcome. The food was perfectly cooked and presented. TBH I couldn't find anything to say that might help you to improve. My philosophy is if it "ain't broken dont mess with it". Pass my regards to all of your staff and keep up the excellent work.????????????????????. See you soon.

    I booked a table for myself and 6 colleagues, we had an excellent evening with god food and drinks in pleasant surroundings. Tables were well spaced and service was prompt and attentive without being too attentive; just right!
    Thank you!

    Service was terrible, we had to ask where our drinks where, as we waited that long, it took hour before our starters came, which was only breads and olives ( which were very nice indeed). Our mains were okay, my daughter had the special Thai sticky chicken, which looked and tasted delicious, desserts also very nice. It was just everything took so long to arrive. The waitress did not introduce herself or come to see if we were enjoying our meals. I have visited before, as it is a convenient half way meeting point for me and my daughter. With hindsight I wish I had complained when paying the bill, but we had been there so long, we needed to get back on the motorway for home.

    Booked for 7.30 , told be a few minutes, everyone else come in after us was led straight through to there table , on com aiming at 8.20 we were taken through, waited 20 minutes for our drinks meal was put on table at 9.35 I was totally disgusted as no explanation at all, I thought it would have been a nice treat but what a backfire

    They were sold out of quite a few mains was included 2 of which I had considered ordering when looked at menu online. Asked to remove 1 ingredient (prawns) (from a risotto dish and was offered a totally different risotto instead so may indicate it isn't made from fresh/with each order. Food had lots of oil around edges of dish which I wouldn't chose but may not bother someone else.
    Service was great though. Would go back but not in a rush as so many other great pubs/restaurants locally.

    Food was good, bringing drinks too quite long, we were halfway through our main course when the new drinks arrived, we drank most of these after finishing our meal.
