Best 'Afternoon Tea' ever!

Visited a couple of times and on both occasions we've had the Picnic Bench Afternoon Tea. I had heard many good reviews so had to try them for myself, and they didn't disappoint. I love the quirky look of them and it's such a refreshing change from just sandwiches. Everything was really tasty... read more

A friendly pub atmosphere, with great food. A wide variety of dishes to choose from and reasonably priced drinks. They also have entertainment each month and themed nights. Would recommend.

We went to The Fox on a Sunday afternoon for one of the picnic benches. It's a beautiful place with a lively atmosphere. At the time we went in I'd say ninety percent of people were having the picnic benches. They're exciting and novel with he savoury bites better than the sweet. The chocolate mousse had split, they were unable... More

Excellent food at a great price, you cant ask for more with the price you pay. Lovely, friendly and attentive staff. The picnic bench was well presented and the picnic benches were fun food with great selections. Can't wait to go back. Beautiful establishment. 5 stars from me!

Lovely meal out with other half. Food was really good, great atmosphere, waiter was a bit too much (short tanned man) implied that I should pay half the bill as it is a national mans day which I thought was a little bit inappropriate.

Had heard about this place from some work colleagues and loved the idea of the picnic benches with afternoon tea on. We went for my partner's birthday and took our 4 year old daughter and we all had an excellent time. The food is excellent and the service was warm and friendly but not over bearing. I've told lots of... More

I visited The Fox with friends before Christmas and was really disappointed with both the food and the service. It took a long time to take our food order and we had to wait quite some time for our starters. The risotto balls were very bland and quite 'claggy' in terms of texture. My main course of salmon was almost... More
