What better way to enjoy a Sunday than in a cosy country pub with a great selection of British roasts starting from £13.95 – served all day and evening on Sundays using the freshest seasonal ingredients.
With a large al fresco dining area and a spacious car park, The Fox – Harpenden is a refurbished country-style pub serving modern British dishes. Inside, leather armchairs, ethnic ornaments and walls painted in rich purples & oranges make this a cosy space to enjoy a traditional Sunday roast or a pint of refreshing beer.
With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Fox menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.
The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Fox bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.
The Fox – Harpenden is a 7-minute drive from Harpenden Rail Station.

Not as good as expected. Not a good choise on menu. More like gastro pub.

The restaurant was very cold and spoilt the ambience for my friend and I. Ordered soup of the day for our starters from the fixed two course menu which we had to send back to be heated up as was lukewarm, was piping hot when returned and was very nice. I had the lobster and crab fish cakes for my main which were crispy and delicious, piping hot and nicely presented. My friend was disapointed with her choice which was a vegetarian tart which was smothered in too much overpowering cheese sauce topping containing Stilton, would be better served on the side. The restaurant and bar area is very trendy and comfortable since recently refurbished. The car park had plenty of parking and has also just been resurfaced. Service was friendly and good although it wasn’t very busy at the time. I would definitely go again and recommend it to others.
