Our outside space is now open – Hooray!
We can now welcome those from 2 households or groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (including children), to enjoy some alfresco eating and drinking. We do have outside areas that can be booked online between April 12th and May 17th or alternatively, we are keeping some tables aside should you just want to pop down and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat without a booking. (Please note, from May 17th when we’re able to open inside the pub, you won’t be able to book outside tables online. Any bookings made from May 17th will be for inside the pub.).
Whilst we are obviously all keeping everything crossed for good weather, it’s best to come prepared for every eventuality, so wrap up warm, bring a blanket and perhaps even an umbrella, just in case. If the heavens do open, we’re really sorry but we won’t be able to allow you to shelter inside the pub.
We can't wait to see you all again.

The Red Fox is a large brick and sandstone building built in the second half of the 19th century.
Within we have many spacious, airy rooms, and plenty more intimate nooks and crannies to nestle away in if you're so inclined. Open fires abound throughout, with wooden floors, an attractive collection of rugs and plants, and lots of good old furniture. We like to think we are a pub with real character.
To the rear of the pub we have extensive raised terraces which overlook the landscaped lawns and countryside beyond. It'll be a wonderful spot to dine in the sunshine from our seasonal, fresh menus made up of a mixture of hearty British classics and lighter lunchtime bites.
We are delighted to have received some auspicious awards of late: 'To have been listed as one of the 'Top 10 Whisky Pubs' in the 2018 Good Pub Guide Awards and we've retained our cider award being named Wirral CAMRA - 'Cider Pub of the Year 2018'.
Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
