If you lived in a pretty village with just the one pub, you'd hope for it to be a stylish gastropub such as The Fox, its bar bristling with real ales, an open-plan dining room and a new 25-seat conservatory extension, plus a skilled kitchen whose ambition goes way beyond pub grub. Under the same ownership as The White Horse in Brancaster Staithe, supply lines to fish and seafood from the Norfolk coast are strong. Half a dozen local oysters are served tempura-style with sweet chilli sauce or just as they come from the sea, and could be followed by chargrilled venison steak, beetroot, kale swede pomme purée, confit smoked baby onion and blackberry jus.
