After a chilly dog it was a pleasure to visit here . Hearty homemade broth for me with delicious cheese scone . My partner opted for the ' Special ' a sumptuous beef baguette onion gravy & roasties . Not bad for £6.95. What more could you ask for 👍

I've passed by The Running Fox many times and it always looks very inviting so I was over the moon to finally visit today. We were quickly shown to a lovely window table and we decided to order afternoon tea. At £20 for two of us we were blown away by the portion sizes. Instead of silly little finger sandwiches... More

I have heard great reviews about this little place, especially its afternoon tea. When I did try it, it just didn't hit the right spot for me. Though the portions were more than ample, what left me very disappointed was the service from the waitresses - slow and sporadic; as well as the quality of some of the pastries -... More

Visited running fox with friends. Lovely hot choc and tea. Croissant delicious. Leek and potato soup awful. Both my friend and I had a bowl of both of us left it. It was tasteless and looked vile. The waitress asked if everything was ok so we said the soup was horrible. She said that she knew this and that it... More

We stopped here on our way to the Northumberland coast, after a family recommendation, we were not disappointed. Lovely and plentiful ploughman's lunch, good home made soup, the home made bread is fab and all this in lovely location by the river. Well worth a visit.
