Good food, lovely decor, great waiter but a little noisy and I'm sure the menu hasn't changed since I was there 1 year ago.

We booked for Sunday lunch - and so did most of Harpenden! The food was slow in arriving but this may be due to the large number of diners and it was plentiful when it arrived. Difficult to mess up a roast. Special requests for children were coped with well and the servers were pleasant, if a trifle rushed, requiring... More

Why didn't we complain? We were stupid, decent starters but then 3 of us had the venison special. I have never tasted shoe leather but it probably tasted better than what we had. Why didn't we complain? Probably the wine and a good atmosphere. This place should be nice but until we complain nothing will happen. Words fail me how... More

We went with 4 friends and had a great time. I remember it when it was a disgusting old grubby boozer, but the Fox is now very modern, stylish and smart... all matt pastel paint and wood. The food is diverse (I shared a meze for starters and them had pheasant) which was excellent. We all had a good time,... More

I called to book a table but the man who answered may as well have hung up as it just seemed to be a bit of an inconvenience for him, it was more or less a case of come if you have to, but you'll have to eat in the bar area because we can't fit you in the restaurant... More

I've eaten at The Fox on many a mid week lunch which has always been an enjoyable experience. Friendly staff, nice modern comfortable decor & a varid menu. Today was my first Sunday lunch here. I wasn't disappointed.... I must say the rib of beef was very tasty, fresh vegetables, crispy roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding & a lovely meaty gravy.... More

We picked The Fox based purely based on the information on the website and we were not disappointed. The welcome is warm and the surroundings cosy. The menu had something for everyone and was reasonably priced. As it was Sunday I opted for the roast and it was wonderful! Would definitely recommend and would definitely return if in the area.

We were a party of 4 and had made a reservation in advance for lunch at this restaurant. Having ordered from the menu and received our drinks, we were still waiting for our starters some 30 minutes after placing the order. One of ourparty had a quiet word with the manager who apologised profusely and said they were short on... More
