1st Visit

1st visit turned out to be a lovely one! Staff were very efficient, food was beautiful, slight wait on food but was acceptable due to the busyness on the night! Defiantly recommend to others!

My partner and I and another couple of friends decided that we would have a joint date night at The Fox as we have heard nothing but good things. We booked a table for 8pm and on arrival the bar area was very busy, (which is usually a good sign) we got our drinks and was sat down at our... More

We visited on a Friday evening and it was very busy, but we were quickly served and the restaurant was pleasantly spacious, so didn't feel overcrowded. The food was delicious, especially the king prawn starter, and the fish pie. My husband had the fish and chips and said they were excellent. The service was prompt and friendly, without being rushed.... More

9 of us went for afternoon tea picnic benches - a cute idea that could easily be very good. Unfortunately this was spoiled by some unacceptable mistakes. Off milk served in milkshakes! We told the waitress that the milk was off and she replied 'are you sure they are banana flavour you know.' Not what you want to hear. They... More

Heard such good reports about the Picnic Bench Afternoon Tea that had to book, and it was absolutely amazing. You start off on the would be seating lower bench with the savouries, and then progress to the table top for the delicious sweet things topped off with a mini milk shake served with either tea or or a glass of...

Went with the girls for the afternoon tea picnic bench. It was amazing! It looked brilliant, plenty of food and all of it tasted amazing. For what you get I also think that it's great value for money too! The amount of savory snacks and deserts were fantastic. Plenty of choice and also the staff offered alternative drinks if you...

This is a modern bar and restaurant in a lovely setting in picturesque Ripponden. We have been here many, many times and have always eaten well, and for a reasonable price. The staff are warm and friendly. The bar meals are very good. The fish and chips and the burger come recommended by my husband! I am vegetarian and there... More

I was a little worried after reading some bad reviews on here but I needn't have been. Me and 3 friends came for picnic bench afternoon tea and I was so impressed. Very quirky and different compared to your traditional afternoon tea. I was also really impressed that the staff asked straight away if anyone was vegetarian and gave two... More

Booked via the website and paid a deposit as requested. Seated on arrival and tea and coffee served straight away. The picnic bench contained banana milkshake, mini lamb burger, carrot and coriander soup, humous and pitta, calamari and chips and feta salad and then eton mess, walnut cake, lemon posset and a homemade biscuit and macaroon. Good value for money,... More
