We've not eaten at the restaurant for a while, having tended to eat at the bar as I always leave it too late to book a table! But we went to the main restaurant for a special occasion recently and The Fox certainly lived up to the recent accolades. I had the Calamari starter which was probably one of the... More

25th wedding anniversary, so big gamble for right venue. I get to eat at restaurants in mayfair and this food was as good as any i have eaten, sublime food, great service, and resonably priced.

We arrived early for our Sunday lunch booking and the friendly staff were most helpful with trying to accommodate us as soon as they could. We had a drink in the bar while we waited. Great range of beers and wines by the glass. Sunday lunch was delicious, with very fresh crispy squid to start, lovely fresh bread on the... More

how good was this, we all had different meals from the Sunday lunch menu, ranging from roast beef to sea bass, along with varied starters, each meal was both a picture and delicious, the beer, my indulgence great. The service was attentive, polite but not invasive, not as cheap as some Sunday lunches, but worth the difference.

Was here recently for a quick lunch. You can see they have tried hard with the décor but it's come out a bit station waiting room/canteen like. The service was abrupt. True, we were faddling around deciding what to drink and eat but that must be par for the course in this business. When the guy serving us had to... More

6 of us attended the fox for a family meal. We were insulted before we even sat down. We had a reservation for 6:30pm and when we arrived. The first thing they said to us was they needed the table before 9pm. This is shocking when we had not even sat down. The steak was not edible and had to... More

Extremely poor service. We were asked by the waitress what we wanted to drink before we'd actually been seated, my husband was still removing his jacket! Service didn't improve. I finished my drink and was not asked if I wanted another for the duration of my meal. Huge wait whilst waiting for our dessert order to be taken. Again a... More

Once again visited the fox for lunch and once again they dont fail to impress. The service is always professional and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is always well presented. I had the squid that was amazing and schnitzel for my main. The food is always full of flavour with plenty of choice, I can never... More

Just been to the fox with my girlfriend for her birthday dinner. I love the building and the service is good. I had the chicken and pork terrine...very bland. I did like the black cherrie garnish, but the jelly that was with it was also tasteless. For my main I had the sea trout. The garnish of beetroot and chorizo... More
