Poor quality meat, chips uncooked hard in middle. Complained to manager who was completely un interested probably not their ideal clientele as in work clothes and not suit and tie!!! Extremely rude and pompous!! would never go again!!! My money just as good as anyone else's and we still expect good service!

Started badly as waiting to be served at the bar when a regular walked in and I was ignored whilst his usual was served. Set the scene for how important my wife and I were to be that evening. Ordered our food and wine and were left for 20 mins before we had to ask if we could have our... More

Have been here a few times, the food is always wonderful, service is great. Gets very busy but they handle it well, never had an issue with timings. Well done.

Four of us went for a meal to have a catch up as we hadn't seen each other for a while. We all ate from the festive menu. Portions were generous and food delicious turkey thickly sliced. Service excellent although we think we were forgotten between mains and desserts so had to do a polite prompt at the bar! Lovely... More

Two friends and myself met today for lunch at The Fox - we have been about twice in the past year as it's a good mid way point between where we all live. The first thing to say is that on every occasion we have visited this place it is freezing. Today was no exception, with a small fire at... More

NO DOGS whatsoever allowed not even in the bar area. i could understand if we had an English Mastiff but a Yorkie !! Anyway i... More

This is a regular place for us to visit as a family. Although it is always busy and quite noisy it actually comes across as a vibrant atmosphere. Food is always of an enjoyable quality and there is always something for our children (12 and 14) to enjoy. Considering how busy it is, you rarely feel you wait too long... More

Nice gastro pub, in a nice setting with good décor and layout. Always very friendly and helpful staff, but sometimes service, and food, can let it down. Whether this is because they are too busy or have different chefs I do not know. But all in all a very nice place to eat. but can get a bit pricey at... More

We were very pleasantly surprised to find absolutely wonderful food in what is a beautiful little restaurant. From entree, to main, to dessert, every single bite was amazing. We were based in Luton for a month for work and used this restaurant on numerous occasions. Every single meal, for every single person, on every single visit, was fantastic. Our only... More
