Bar
“Located in the hometown of co-founder, Bill Dalton, the original Fox & Goose has been in operation for over two hundred years in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, a small town located near the scenic Moors of Northern England. Sacramento’s Fox & Goose, although not nearly as old as the original, has captured the traditional qualities and added an atmosphere all its own. Offering a tantalizing selection of the finest draught beers, most of which are from Great Britain and Ireland, fine wines and a full section of liquors, Fox & Goose remains true to its roots. The varied menu, which includes traditional English dishes along with vegetarian dishes and American food, offers something for everyone. Fox & Goose has a reputation for the “Best Breakfast” in Sacramento, winning awards in this category numerous times. In addition, Fox & Goose offers Lunch, Dinner, and Live Music five nights a week.”
