The Ginger Fox

Muddleswood Road, on the A281 at the junction with the B2117, near Albourne BN6 9EA

Round Brighton way you can’t really go wrong with any restaurant that’s got a “Ginger” in its name; The Ginger Fox is the country outpost of a foodie mini-empire that also encompasses the reliably excellent Ginger Dog and Ginger Pig gastro-pubs and the Gingerman restaurant in Brighton. Like its sister pubs, the emphasis food-wise is on the local and seasonal, so you’ll find Harveys beer and Ridgeview wine behind the bar, and local meat and fish on the menu (in mains such as rib-eye with duck fat chips, or fillet of skate with samphire). The pub itself is a lovely old whitewashed building with picture-perfect thatch (topped by a thatched fox), and outside there’s a lovely large garden with a small play area – just one of the things that will keep children happy, along with a treasure hunt and a special kids’ menu featuring home-made ice-cream.
