Phil & Lauren Davison, landlord and landlady of The Fox at Peasemore

Our Story

Since taking over the Fox at Peasemore in 2013, Phil & Lauren Davison have breathed life back into this fantastic village pub.

Before taking over the Fox, Phil & Lauren had The Sun in the Wood in Ashmore Green for 16 years, building a strong local reputation which followed them to Peasemore. When they took over The Fox in 2013, the pub was extremely run down, but through their hard work, fantastic team, and brilliant local relationships, they were not only able to restore it to a great village pub, but see it flourish into a true hub of the community and popular, drive-out dining destination.

"Superb place to eat"

"Just loved the Fox 1st time visit won’t be the last loved it the menu the surroundings plus the staff were all superb. There were so many choices on menu that appealed we have to return to enjoy some more. The pub was so busy the service still rated first class. Every course was served with perfection a good size portion. The restaurant was well decorated plus seats comfortable which sometimes let a pub down we have found a gem we will be back."

"Our favourite traditional English Pub!"

"Went with my wife as part of my birthday celebrations. Had not been since COVID restrictions and was great to be back. This place is as much about those that run it as it is about good food and drink selection. We were greeted by joint owner Lauren, who as usual always finds time to talk along with providing great advice on wine choice. If you like to visit real traditional English pubs run by lovely people, this is place for you."

"Fabulous food and welcoming staff"

"My wife and I have eaten here a number of times and the food and reception always bring us back for more. The quality of food is so high we could easily let the staff choose our starters, mains and desserts for us as everything is delicious. The view across the fields is also idyllic on a summer's day."

"A perfect evening..."

"It was such a delight to return to The Fox after so long. Expectations were high and we weren't disappointed. The outside, covered eating area is very comfortable and we were looked after very well, despite a large clientele inside. The food was super, atmosphere perfect, we'll be back!"
