I visited here with my mum and a friend on a busy Sunday afternoon. We had booked and I would advise people to book as the dining area was very busy. Except for a short wait to be seated the service was prompt and all the staff were very polite and helpful. We had the afternoon tea, which was the... More

Three of us went for afternoon tea and it definitely lived up to our expectations. On the evidence of our one and only visit I can recommend this in terms of tasty food, innovative presentation and pleasant ambience. Each item on the picnic bench was as it should be, no complaints at all. There is a vast amount of food... More

Came with work for my 'last supper' before surgery and it did not disappoint. We had booked in for the afternoon tea picnic bench and were amazed at how much you got. The bench consisted of chicken & chips / calamari & chips, lamb burger, houmous and flat bread, carrot & corriander soup, greek salad. Then the sweets were sticky... More

I very much enjoyed a fish platter I had (as a main) washed down with a nice pint of cold lager. The food was good - it was just getting the bill at the end that seemed to take ages!

We eat (and drink) at The Fox regularly. Yesterday's visit was up to the usual standard. We chose our starters from the fish festival menu. The sardines and mackerel fillet beautifully cooked and presented, and both tasted delicious. We then both had the tradional Sunday roast-pork for my husband, lamb for me. Vegetables all cooked perfectly, accompanied by a tasty... More

Average food, long wait for food and just a bit boring really, best thing is the atmosphere and they have a nice drop of red!

A very pleasant experience. The food was served on a mini garden bench with seat attached. The food was very good and plenty of it. We had booked and requested a window seat, however the young man seated us at the back. My friend pointed out we had requested a window seat, I must point out,that after he was told... More

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
