Closed in the 1950s and converted into flats but now three private residences. All that indicates that this was a pub is the faded name painted on the sides and the iron bracket that held the pub sign. It had facilities for coaches and, given the name, may well have been used by those coming to the Quorn Hunt.
It is reported that, in the middle of the last century, the landlady of the Fox used to buy a dress-piece of material and hang it on a flagpole out of an upstairs window on the second Monday in July. The "Women's Club" had a tea in the pub and then played skittles to see who would win the dress-piece.
