COVID Guidelines


Since reopening after lockdown, we have made sure to impliment some new changes to The Fox Inn pub and The Vixen restaurant, in order to protect both our customers and staff. 

As part of the Government's Track and Trace system, all customers will be required to fill out a form with their name, number and address. You must also confirm on this form that all people on your table are from your household or support bubble. These forms will be kept separately for three weeks before being destroyed; so your information will be kept confidential and safe.

The NHS Track and Trace barcode is throughout the pub, so you can use this to track your location also.


We have multiple sanitising stations throughout the pub for customer use.


All of our tables both in the pub and restaurant are the appropriate distance apart, making sure the 1m+ rule is kept to at all times.
All tables must be from one household or one support bubble only, and must wear a mask at all times unless eating or drinking.


All of our staff will wear masks at all times whilst in the premisis, and all food is brought out with sterile napkins which will be binned after each use.


All menus are printed with one to each table and will be destroyed after each use so as to not cross contaminate.


We also have a one way system throughout the pub; the front door as the entrance and then signs will lead you to the exit through the restaurant's fire door.


When enterting The Fox Inn, please wait just inside the door for us to seat you. Please do not go to the bar as we are unable to serve you here due to new guidelines. Throughout the pub and restaurant we have table service running; all forms will be brought to you as well as drinks and food, and all orders will be taken here. When you are ready to leave, we will bring the bill to your table and then you can leave via the exits signs.

Thank you so much for your co-operation and we hope to see you soon.
