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.

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.

    The food was as ever, excellent, despite the scallops on the menu but not available - and about to be withdrawn.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.

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

    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.
