Fantastic breakfasts and lunches. Go hungry and be prepared for huge portions. All breads are baked on the premises. The Running Fox is a local legend and is only minutes from the A1. Best to book ahead.

I reckon we must have had almost 200g of salmon apiece and we only just managed it. It was really good salmon though. We took some bread and cakes home with us and... More

The GF tea consisted... More
