Restaurant description

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.

    Delicious meal, very generous portions. Very busy Sunday lunch.

    Meal was appalling.. ordered a roast dinner, with extra bits, when the food came out, it was cold. The extras we had ordered did not get brought out.. Nobody came to check on our table and after 15 minutes I finally managed to get our waitresses attention (she was busy chatting) to explain the issues. Her attitude was "I'm just a waitress, I can't do anything, let me get my manager". Manager came over, wasn't surprised, didn't apologise but offered to reheat the food, which we refused, as meat was not very nice, Yorkshire puddings had clearly been left on the pass and then "reheated" in the deep fat fryer. Eventually, another half an hour later, the waitress came back and told us she'd gone higher up (though we'd already spoken to the manager?) And we didn't need to pay for our meals. The table next to us also had the same issue. Despite them trying to rectify the situation, I would not go back nor recommend the Fox to anyone. A roast dinner should not be a difficult meal to cook for a chef. Having worked in hospitality, if this had been my restaurant I would have been mortified and the chef would have been out apologising.

    On 28 December two staff were off sick, so service by the two cheerful waitresses was inevitably slow

    Great meal plenty of choice from fixed menu price to having what you want. Cost wise is very much down to what you have but a full steak dinner well cooked and presented anout £14. Will be going back for sure.

    The food was as ever, excellent, despite the scallops on the menu but not available - and about to be withdrawn. That is a shame. The first (friendly) waitress could have been more attentive - long gaps between services meant we had to go and fetch her on at least one occasion. The sparkling water arrived "warm" - which was when we had to go and find the waitress to put this right - which was then done with an ice bucket that caused a delay in being able to drink it. Seemingly the restaurant does not have a "ready" chiller for cold drinks - this is a big opportunity to improve. The second waiter was more on the ball, and generally much more attentive. That was good. Overall,still a very pleasant 30th Wedding Anniversay dinner nevertheless.

    I have absolutely nothing to complain about in respect of the food or the service BUT - It is a long time since I dined at the FOX but my first impressions were influenced by the front door of your establishment. As one walked from the car park, the picture it painted was one of dilapidation. A coat of paint and some water in the hanging baskets would have helped, but not a lot. It really needs some drastic care and attention, sooner rather later.
