Lovely afternoon tea!

The place is really nice and modern and the picnic bench afternoon tea was excellent!! We were asked to move from our table to the bar at the end as they needed our table back but we had been in over 2 hours so we didn't mind! Will return! Good value for money!

Over priced for what can only be described as average food at best. The food was bland and very poor quality. Never have i been so underwhelmed as i did when eating here. Apart from the company the whole evening was ruined due to the meal. And to top it off they added stuff to the bill we hadnt even... More

Good food and good value but service only fair: Staff needed reminding about items requested, although a wine list was brought no one followed up to take the order, and generally staff were inattentive.

Me and my friend visited the Fox. We had the "a la carte" menu which didnt disappoint. Amazing food, very attentive staff, we were welcomed from the beginning. A special thank you to the short guy in the waistcoat who made my birthday unforgettable by looking after us so well. Definitely return for the picnic bench to try!

I was really looking forward to visiting The Fox following recommendations from friends. We were a party of 5 being, two couples and a young baby. Immediately upon walking into the restaurant we were not welcomed by anyone. Only after waiting and being forced to find a member of staff were we shown our table. We received our menus quickly...

Came here for a treat on a Sunday morning. Pub was busy, almost full so we were lucky to get a seat - I think you're better off booking in advance. We had two full English breakfasts - both lovely and not overpriced. All locally sourced and fresh ingredients. Left nicely full (not crippled by a food baby!) ;-)

This was our first visit to The Fox Bar and Bistro. The staff are friendly and the place is very well presented. We had the picnic table for 3 people and it didn't disappoint. Our 12yr old daughter thought it was amazing, as so did my husband. The food is lovely and very plentiful. We ended up taking some of... More

Went to The Fox for the picnic benches afternoon tea with my sisters. I was a little bit worried before going as the booking process was a bit of a nightmare it took almost 10 minutes on the phone to book the table and had heard mixed reviews about the service etc. I am so glad we went, it was...

I and five of my family had afternoon tea. Second time for me, also, one of my daughters. I was delighted that they had taken calamari off the menu, and put original fish and chips back, they are delicious, four of us did not like the pumpkin soup however, my grandson did, so no waste there. I thought the portions... More
