The Fox at Loxley story
In April 2019 The Fox at Loxley was put up for sale and a dedicated group of volunteers set about buying the pub and turning it into a Community Pub for Loxley and the surrounding villages.
We were overwhelmed with the interest in creating a Community Pub and our share launch resulting in us raising over £270,000 from 223 investors from across the UK as well as overseas, this combined with a small loan and grant support from the Plunkett Foundation was enough to be able to buy the Fox at Loxley. The purchase was completed on the 1st September 2020 and while we have been closed due to the restrictions of Covid-19 a dedicated team of volunteers have been busy refurbishing the pub and getting ready to open as a Community Pub that is more than a Pub.
We are opening on the 21st May 2021 when our Manager and Chef, Hannah and Ryan look forward to welcoming you to a traditional village pub selling quality beers, lagers, ciders and wine and serving traditional home cooked pub food.
The future plans include opening for morning coffee and afternoon tea as well as over time making use of the field behind the Fox for events that support our ethos of being more than a Pub.
