"Pleasant and Friendly"
Nice place to stay, small locally sourced menu, so good quality. Breakfast was good, but a bit haphazard, not sure that staff were completely focused on job in hand, had to wait a long time, especially between courses, didn't think toast was ever going to arrive, but staff were very pleasant.

"Location near to Wormsley Cricket"
Booked this pub solely that it was only a few miles from Wormsley. The pub is very traditional and we were slightly worried that the bedrooms would be average. They were not! Excellent bed, good bathroom with a good shower and lots of nice touches, tea & coffee facilities. The weather was very hot during our visit but a large fan in the room helped a lot. We have stayed all over the world and paid for a lot more for rooms which did not match ours. Read less
Likes:
Good breakfasts and helpful staff who gave us ice for our picnic. Very good plain food was available and we had two evening meals at reasonable prices.
Dislikes:
A small criticism is that the bar area could do with a makeover. It is a little dark but overall we enjoyed our stay.

The Fat Fox Inn is located at the centre of the small market town of Watlington on the edge of the Chiltern Hills. The town is approximately 45 miles from London, 13 miles from Oxford and 10 miles from Henley on Thames. It is therefore very much a home to commuters going to London and Oxford, albeit it remains a self sufficient and thriving community. In addition to being on the doorstep to the Chilterns it benefits from The Ridgeway, a national trail, running along the town’s west border.

The pub has an attractive bar set next to an inglenook fire place with a wood burning stove and a newly developed dining room which is elegantly eclectic. To the rear of the property there is a converted coaching barn which houses seven of nine letting en-suite bedrooms.

Drinks and food are served in the bar whilst the dining room is reserved for diners only. We are very conscious that we make drinkers and diners feel equally welcome, making a great effort to introduce those drinking alone into the general conversation, no one is a stranger here for long.

Having two distinctly differing areas to dine gives us the opportunity to satisfy different dining occasions. The bar suits a quick informal meal for two or perhaps a large get together of old friends all of which may not wish to eat and would like to draw from the bar atmosphere. The dining room is ideal for couples who wish for greater intimacy or a special gathering with family and friends.

Both the dining room and the bar offer an informal knowledgeable friendly service. The staff do not wear a uniform, dressing smartly but casually.
