Wow... First visit in twelve months and the place has really changed... A total refit that has really smartened the place up... As I have mentioned before, I have always liked this pub, so pleased to report it is still the friendly, warm place it was before, just with better decor! The upper level now seems more open to the bar which helps... Beers good as always; Woodfordes Tinsel toes, St.Austell Proper job plus two Adnams - Ghost ship and Lighthouse. Food is slightly more expensive, but always seems busy, so probably justified. My eleven year old missed the pool table though!

Great as usual, visited twice over the Christmas period; First after a walk around Aberton reservoir, then again Christmas day. Great range of ale; Woodfordes Wherry, Woodfordes Tinsel Toes, Maldon Gold & ‘Nutcrackered’ from The Mighty Oak Brewing Co among others. Always busy and always a friendly welcome. Food was good pub fayre. This pub survives and prospers by doing the simple things well; It also turns it's hand to other things, for example B&B, shop, book swap, deli, café etc...

Good local pub... Have spent a few christmas holidays @ Rye farm and can definately recommend The Layer Fox. Good local feel, nice warm open fire and good range of beers. Red Fox (Coggeshal), Rockin Rudolph etc... Good food as well

Enjoyed a number of pints of Red Fox (Coggeshal) Bitter and Fools Gold. - pretty good........ if possibly a little cold (but that's mainly personal taste)
Evening meal OK - typical pub grub
A definite locals pub, community oriented with friendly atmosphere
Small deli counter and cash machine !
Very good B&B faciities, with very acceptable full english breakfast (no toileteries in bathroom - not a proble for us, we had our own).
Worth a visit if passing or needing a B&B in the area.
