Great Fun!!

We have lived in the area for over 30 years, and although we had heard of the Fox and Goose, we'd never ventured over. My grandson took us there for my birthday brunch, assuring me it was great fun - AND IT WAS!! The building itself is worth the trip. It must have been a factory in its previous... read more

I had this restaurant on my "To Do List," and I'm happy I found it because I plan to return often. There was a wait on Sunday (approximately 15-25 minutes), but this usually means that the food is good, and it was. I started with a top notch Bloody Mary, and I'm not a drinker. I was enticed by the... More

This is a favorite spot in Sacramento, a lot of people think it's the greatest. I'm not one of them. 50 minute wait for brunch, food was alright, but nothing special. Scones were undercooked and doughy. It was OK, nothing bad, but nothing I'd wait around for again.

Great breakfast! Had usual and different offerings than a typical american breakfast place. Crumpets and scones are a must try.

We found this restaurant after participating in a 5k race in Sacramento, and enjoyed every bit of it. On this particular day the weather was excellent, so sitting outside was a pleasure, albeit the view isn't anything to write home about. Still, the breakfasts are very plentiful and tasty, and lunch options equally so.

We've been to Fox and Goose twice now and both times were the same. Great breakfast, generous portions and good service. There always seems to be a large crowd waiting, so get their early, sit on the patio or get a drink from the bar ahead. Their mimosas are popular and their bloody marys are quite tasty. Get the works... More

Need I say more? A British style pub with bad fish and chips. The Pollock fish was ok but the batter was flavorless, oily and soggy. We also had the Shepards Pie, which was ok but tasted miicrowaved. Not recommended.

Breakfast at the Fox & Goose Pub is like wearing your favorite pair of comfortable shoes. You know the fit will always be right. The Fox & Goose has the ambiance -- and the menu and bar beverages -- of a typical English pub. The restaurant does not take reservations. On weekends you will join a line of people waiting... More

I was looking for a place that served Guinness for an after race refresher and found a wonderful Scottish pub that also serves a lovely breakfast. Our wait was worth every minute. We had a classic English breakfast and an omelet which was personalized to taste (including a fruit scone with clotted cream, YUM). Though the cream is not traditional... More

Thought I would give it a try have to look into reviews on trip advisor. My wife, daughter and granddaughter came in on a Friday night. Bangers and mash not impressive, Fish and chips were okay. Lay chocolate grand marnier was okay but not what we expected. The beer selection was great though!
