The Fox is an award winning country pub and fine dining restaurant with rooms located in the picturesque village of Willian in north Hertfordshire. With a wide selection of real ales, seasonal menus and a great wine list, we regularly appear in the Top 50 Gastropubs and have been awarded 2 aa rosettes. Our talented team of Chef’s lead by Sherwin serve breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.

We have a great locals bar serving a wide selection of real ales including our own Brancaster Brewery brews and regular changing guestales. You can tuck into our great bar menu with all the classics done with a characteristic ‘Fox twist’ and a host of specials. If it is a warm day you can enjoy food and drink outside in our pub garden spilling out onto the beautiful village green.

There is stylish but relaxed dining in the modern restaurant which serves an abundance of locally sourced seasonal produce and an impressive wine list. We can also accommodate private dining in the restaurant.

We have eight bespoke country-smart guest bedrooms. Each room is beautifully decorated with contemporary furnishings and all the finishing touches for a comfortable stay; big cosy beds, powerful walk-in showers, fresh tea & coffee facilities, high spec TVs, wireless and aircon.
