Built as four farm cottages in 1624, a feature of the bar in this peaceful village pub is its collection of miniatures – over 1,100 so far, and counting. It’s an easy place to get to whether travelling on the A303 or the M3. The Fox welcomes families, as you might guess from the children’s adventure play area in the extensive beer garden which blazes with colour in summer when the pretty flower borders and hanging baskets are in bloom. In the bar, landlord Rob MacKenzie serves well-looked after real ales from Brakspear, West Berkshire and guest breweries, and an impressive malt whisky selection among which you’ll find the relatively scarce Auchentoshan, Dalmore and Singleton. Bar choices include a ciabatta bacon butty; and steak and beef sausage pie and mash. Rob’s wife Izzy is responsible for the monthly menus and daily specials board in the tartan-carpeted restaurant, which list the house specialities of cheese soufflé, and Hampshire venison served with glazed shallots, field mushrooms, spinach, creamed swede, sauté potatoes and port glaze. Among typical main courses there might be Scottish salmon en croûte; port tenderloin saltimbocca; or, in season, grilled fillet steak on potato rösti. Home-made desserts are tempting too – there’s Mars bar cheesecake; mango and passionfruit crème brûlée; and clafoutis with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream. The Fox’s events calendar features monthly wine tasting dinners.
