About The Fox
The Fox in Menston is a village pub known for its well-kept real ales and fresh, honest food - all served with lashings of good old-fashioned Yorkshire hospitality in cosy, stylish surroundings. Overlooking the Menston cricket ground, our alfresco eating and drinking area makes for a lovely spot during the summer.
A proper Yorkshire pub
As the oldest pub in the village, we've been refreshing the lovely people of Menston, Ilkley and Otley for nearly 200 years. We're a favourite with hikers and walkers from Wharfedale Valley, and also with those who prefer just to put their feet up (preferably with a pint of Timmy Taylor's).
