The bed was comfortable and the staff were friendly.
Dislikes:
There were loud customers on the car park underneath our window until 2am which disturb our sleep. The TV did not work and the bathroom shelf had disappeared with fixings sticking out of the wall.

"Poor night's rest because of electrical breakdown"
A very broken night because of an electrical breakdown. It was very difficult to contact staff: the emergency phone numbers were not answered first thing. The chef rescued us, and - perhaps because of that the breakfast was not very good or entirely in line with what was ordered. No real apology was offered by the management for a pretty unsatisfactory stay. Read less
Likes:
The room was away from the busy pub.
Dislikes:
Apart from the above, the decor and furniture in the breakfast room was dowdy and dull. The Men's toilets were extremely cold.

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.
