The Fox Inn makes a good lunch stop for hungry travellers for not only does it advertise itself conspicuously at the roadside but it also has a convenient entrance to car parking so that you can avail yourself of the facilities. Inside we found it very popular, but fortunately not completely full. There were lots of tempting things on the menu, but as we knew we'd be having an early supper, we decided on a sharing plate, with one other starter. I spotted a flyer on the adjacent table extolling the virtues of pig's ears as a nibble or starter, so we had that too.
After a considerable wait as the diners included several large groups, our food arrived. The pigs ears were delicious - like scratchings but not fatty. Unfortunately the same could not be said of the cured ham on the platter. It was very fatty and there was not much of it. Also only small quantities of salami and cheese but a lot of olives and cornichons. Even the bread was frugal - thin crisp slices rather than the chunks we were expecting which usually accompany platters. There was a pleasant ambiance and other peoples main dishes looked fairly substantial, so I think we just chose badly.
