I received an invitation to afternoon tea at The Running Fox from my daughters as part of my birthday presents. What a beautiful idea. My husband and young grandson also joined us. We were seated upstairs which I though was in a beautiful room. The choices on the menu was excellent and they arrived on tiered cake tray, even our... More

I love this little cafe. We normally visit at least a couple of times per month. Haven't been recently as had a horrific experience with a beef stottie off the specials board. We were told a new chef was in. We accepted that as we have never found a fault in their armour at anytime in the previous 15-20 visits.... More

What a great place!! So much food, to such a great quality!! The steak and ale pie was amazing, the best I have ever tasted! The choklit fudge cake was to die for!! I have always been a fan of chocolate cake and this one did not let me down. This is a must come place!! Highly recommended!!

I've visited The Running Fox a few times for either a hot drink and cake or for lunch. It's always very busy so if you want a guaranteed table, best to book! I've sat upstairs most times and the atmosphere is lovely, with local photographs and art on the walls to admire on the way up the stairs and a... More

We have been to this Coffee Shop 4 times now, the first 3 times the experience was good. On our third visit, the experience not so good. On all visits We had The Afternoon Cream Tea and I have to say it is very nice and very filling. Exceeds all expectations however on our fourth visit We were having a... More

We visited the RF again a couple of weeks ago and took our family with us after we had been telling them how great it was. The food was generally lovely (we all had the afternoon tea) and the staff were friendly, but there were a couple of points that I hope they will take as constructive criticism because the... More

We stopped in for a cup of tea and a slice of cake on a rather roundabout drive from Warkworth on the way home. I'd heard it was lovely and the place had been recommended by a few people. When we got there, we were told they were fully booked, but if we were just after a drink and some... More

We visited the Running Fox today for tea and cake.. The location wss lovely and the food is good, but not excellent as a lot of the reviews suggest. Although the service was efficient, we found the staff to be quite surly as if serving us (2 adults & 1 small child) was an effort that they seemed to tolerate... More

Recently enjoyed lunch here with my friend, arrived early to our booking but were greeted politely. After a little wait (very busy for a weekday) we were shown upstairs to our table. Overall an enjoyable experience, I had a corned beef pie floating on baked beans and my friend had afternoon tea. You can tell all freshly baked. Enjoyable, a... More
