At Foxhills we are working hard to reduce our impact on our fragile environment. We all need to do our bit to minimize our carbon footprint, but also to consciously eliminate as much single use plastic items from everyday use. Items like plastic straws, yoghurt pots, coffee cups and lids are having a devastating impact on marine wildlife. We are big on recycling too and kindly ask guests to assist us in ensuring recycle items do not end up in landfill.
At Foxhills we are pleased to offer a variety of vegetarian and vegan options alongside our traditional fare for meat eaters. We recognize that our food choices should compliment yours. Every day we will have a wide selection of non meat dishes, and in the summer months there will be delicious daily specials to choose from too.
You can be confident that all Vegan and Vegetarian meals are prepared and cooked without cross contamination from meat products.
Although we are Vegetarian friendly and Vegan Friendly we cater for guests who are fans of the traditional English Breakfast too. Foxhills is not exclusively Vegan or Vegetarian.
