A little pub history
Contrary to popular belief, The Fox House was named after Mr Fox of Callow Farm in Highlow, not the small animal. Dating back to 1773, the building was extended by The Duke of Rutland, the landlord in the 1840's. With years of heritage, The Fox House was a favoured resting place for livestock drivers and the passengers of stagecoaches.

Make a day of it
Originally part of the Longshaw Estate, a beautiful area for ramblers, the 18th Century Fox House is well known. The large bottom room was known as The Duke's Room because the Duke of Rutland sometimes slept there.
