Restaurant description

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.

    We visited the Stretton Fox a few weeks ago and had such a wonderful dining experience that we decided that we would bring our Son and Daughter in law for a meal the next time they visited us from Shropshire. This was on the 15th. April 2017 and it certainly didn't disappoint. The staff are friendly, attentive and aware of the customer. The food is perfect. My wife and I had the calamari to start. My wife's steak was cooked exactly as she asked and my Daughter in laws sea bass was nothing short of perfect. Our Son so enjoyed his Pizza that he was still talking about it the next morning. Don't get us started about the puddings; wow!!!!!! We have read a few reviews on this venue and they talk about having to wait for there service. This is a shame as we believe that the way they leave you to enjoy your dining experience is perfect. We booked on line, were shown to our table when we arrived and enjoyed a leisurely, sociable meal with no rushing. Well done Stretton Fox. We look forward to enjoying further dining experiences for many years to come.

    Great location for a meet with work colleagues On this occasion it was short staffed meaning service was slow and no-one around to ask for drinks or the bill. Food ok but nothing special. We weren't informed about items not available until we came to order them which I hate!!!

    Must of had shortage of staff behind the bar (only one) as it took a good ten minutes to get served and then again when ordering our meal we ordered drinks and after awhile had to remind the waiter that we were still waiting. He returned and apologised saying they were just being poured.!!

    Food was excellent. Service was really poor. Almost 1 hour wait between starter and main meal.

    Need to get timings sorted ! Table booked for 7.30pm arrived a few minutes early to be told table ready in 20 minutes, obviously over booked, long que of people all expressing same comments even wonder if fish & chip shop would be open. We could see 4 tables empty and not one person eating. We went to bar and had a drink, at 6.30 pm when the que was now to the door I went to enguire as to our table and was sold it was being cleared, we were shown to our table at 7.40pm. Served eventually by a very pleasant young man the food was good when it arrive, although I hate being rushed a sweet arriving 10.30 is a little late for a meal booked for 7.30!
