fox and barrel

Bar & Restaurant

Welcome to the Fox and Barrel at Cotebrook, one of Cheshire's finest country pubs and restaurants as recommended in the Good Food Guide 2013, for our fourth consecutive year since becoming a Freehouse in 2009. We offer a wide range of beers, ales and wines together with excellent food using the highest quality ingredients combined with a friendly, informal service in a traditional, relaxing atmosphere with beamed ceilings and a welcoming real fire.

If you are thinking of paying us a visit at the weekend or during the holidays, we highly recommend booking as we can be very busy during these periods.

Our Food

Chef Richard (Dickie) Cotterill uses only the best raw materials to produce a succession of superb top quality dishes.

Our Team

We are always on the look out for talented new people. If you think you've got what it takes then we'd love to hear from you.


We are a traditional pub based in the heart of Cheshire, where you'll find some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK.


We have all worked very hard this year and are proud to be Cheshire Life Dining Pub of the Year 2012 / 2013.

  • An unbeatable combination of good food, fine wines, well-kept cask ales and great company. The standards of preparation and presentation are uniformly high in everything they do and represent.
