The Fox Inn in Boars Hill – Fantastic children’s Menu

The Fox Inn in Boars Hill – Fantastic children’s Menu

We are always on the search for somewhere  that not only has a great children’s menu, but also has good food for the grown ups too, and I think The Fox Inn at Boars Hill definitely has both.

I visited The Fox Inn with my family at the weekend and I am so pleased we did. We arrived just as it was getting dark and even before you went through the door, the pub looked inviting and cosy. As you walked in you were met with delicious smells, roaring fires and the super friendly team of people who work there.

I was delighted to see the selection on the children’s menu with a choice of Mini Corn on the Cob with melted butter, Carrot & Honey Soup with Garlic Bread Soldiers or Cheesy Nachos with Tomato Salsa, Sour Cream and Guacamole to start. Both of my girls opted for the corn on the cob which they loved and it wasn’t too heavy to fill them up before their main.

The main choices were just as good with a choice of Filo Fish Pie, BBQ Chicken Burger, a 5oz Rump Steak, Turkey Meatballs and Pasta, Build-your-own Pizza Wrap and Roast Dinner (on a Sunday). The decision was a hard one, but they went for the Build-your-own Pizza Wrap which they had enourmous fun in making and loved seeing the result of their creation when it came out of the oven.

For dessert the choices were Build your own Pancake, Strawberry and Banana Milkshake, Warm Apple Crumble plus Sticky Toffee Pudding from the specials menu. They both went for the Sticky Toffee Pudding and cleared their plates.

The children’s menu has been developed in partnership with Dotty’s Kitchin, and it is evident that each item has been carefully thought about to be exciting, delicious and nutritious.

The Adult menu was extensive too, with a great choice of starters and sharing platters, mains and desserts plus a number of specials, and we all came away feeling full and satisfied

The ambiance of the pub was traditional, friendly and relaxed with wooden beams and roaring fires and it is definitely somewhere I would visit again.
