The Fox lies in the highly attractive Oxfordshire village of Middle Barton fronting the Enstone Road, B4030, the main Road through the village, at its junction with Fox Lane, and adjoining the Edward the Confessor Church. Middle Barton is an affluent residential Village which together with the adjoining smaller hamlet of Westcote Barton, and Steeple Barton, 1 mile to the east, form The Bartons. Road communications are good with both the A4260 and A44 closeby allowing good access to Bicester and Chipping Norton, both of which are within 9 miles to the east and west respectively, and Banbury, 10 miles to the north. The population within 1 km is circa 1557 (Nimbus Maps).
The property, which is Grade II listed, is of two storey stone construction with dormer level under a pitched slate roof with substantial single storey extensions of similar construction to the side and rear. A shale car park for circa 8 vehicles lies alongside with adjacent detached stone outbuilding/garage to one side. The public house benefits from a beer patio directly adjoining the front bar and also a beer garden to the rear of the site. The site area is circa 0.311 acres (Nimbus Maps). The property is ACV listed. The local community body who nominated the site have indicated a wish to bid and therefore a 6 month moratorium ending on 27th December 2023 has been triggered for them to make a bid. Discussions with parties looking to continue with the existing pub use or other community groups are unaffected within this period.
