Offering excellent food in Much  Wenlock, The Fox dates back to the 1600s and has always been a dominant coaching inn.

We are a Grade II listed building with a newly designed contemporary restaurant and bar area, that still manages to retain its welcoming ambiance.  In the winter sit by our roaring log fire and enjoy local fine ales such as Hobsons "Town Crier" and "Shropshire Lad".

With 7 en-suite bedrooms, individually styled, The Fox is perfectly situated for exploring Much Wenlock and Ironbridge. 

Our light and airy restaurant seats 38 people with ease, and lends itself well to private parties or functions.

Our A La Carte menu is created with flair and listening to what our customers want, we offer locally sourced produce wherever  possible, and all our meat is free range sourced from a local Bridgnorth butcher.

Our ribeye steaks and hand cut chips are to die for, and served with a green peppercorn sauce.

(Please view our website to see our current menu)

We also offer lighter lunches during the weekdays for walkers and visitors to the town. 
The Fox is set in the Historic town of Much Wenlock in the rolling Shropshire Hills and makes a perfect base for exploring the sites of Ironbridge, Ludlow Castle and the Severn Valley Railway, as well as numerous walks along Wenlock Edge or the Long Mynd in Church Stretton.
We look forward to seeing you here at The Fox for some true individuality and wonderful food.
