Review on Fox and Goose

The Fox and Goose is at the centre of village life in Fressingfield, with the church behind and the village pond in front. Built as the local Guildhall around 1509, the historic timber-framed residence did duty as hostelry during the eighteenth century but is now wholeheartedly a country restaurant.

Contemporary touches and colourful artwork jazz up the atmospheric dining room where staff provide cheerful, professional service. If you fancy a light lunch with a glass of Adnams ale, the menu offers great-value options including calf's liver with celeriac purée or a trio of fish with crushed new potatoes, fine beans and lobster sauce.

Dinner is a more ambitious carte with modern British, French and Mediterranean overtones and a feel for local produce. You might start with duck breast on coriander and goats' cheese risotto or char-grilled asparagus with a poached egg and truffle dressing before fillet of sea bass cooked in raisin and caper butter or loin of lamb with a honey and mustard crust, roast parsnips and saffron jus. To finish try rhubarb tarte Tatin or the trio of citrus desserts. The 50-strong wine list is a knowledgeable selection of enthusiastically chosen bottles with fair price tags.
