A Traditional Ethos, Inspiring Modern British Food Excellence
The Fox is located in pretty Chaddesley Corbett, Worcestershire, a charming village characterised by picturesque half-timbered buildings. It is thought that an inn of some sort has stood on the site of The Fox for at least 250 years, with the current building dating from the late 1830s. Historically, the pub has offered a vital meeting place for this small rural community. A friendly welcome still greets our guests today, as Head Chef Ben Giles and his partner Emma keep traditional family values at the core of The Fox’s modern ethos.
Ben & Emma acquired The Fox in 2017, and quickly set to work applying their food passion and years of experience in the trade to this country pub and restaurant. Traditional values are key to Ben’s food ethos, coming from a successful family of publicans and restauranteurs, who own both The Punchbowl Inn, just outside Bridgnorth, and the renowned Plough Inn at Far Forest. Emma’s extensive experience in all aspects of the pub and restaurant industry ensures a warm welcome and friendly front-of-house service to all our guests.
Together, Ben and Emma bring these family traditions to The Fox, fused with their own passion for superb modern British dining. The restaurant now offers both a la carte excellence, served six evenings a week, and a daily, premium AGA carvery. A unique Nostalgia Inns innovation, the Giles family have personally developed their carveries in partnership with the AGA brand, providing a depth of flavour only found at two other restaurants nationwide: Ben’s parent’s pub The Plough and The Punchbowl Inn, run by his brother!
At The Fox, our seasonal menus are shaped by a passion for fresh produce with a focus on the provenance of our ingredients. Local meat and vegetables are supplied by Griffins Farm Shop and Bewdley Farm Shop, both located only a few miles from the restaurant, keeping food mileage low and ensuring exceptional freshness and quality. Ben regularly travels to regional trade markets to acquire only the finest meat and fish for his kitchen, scrutinising every cut to guarantee that only the best reaches your plate.
Ben & Emma’s focus on local provenance is also evident in your glass and on our bar; we keep local Hereford Pale Ale from Wye Valley Brewery on draught every day alongside selected guest ales, and our extensive wine list offers something to suit all tastes and budgets.
