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

Read the reviews all good however,my opinion is somewhat different. Went on a Wednesday eve & the restaurant was full by the time of our leaving. I had a lovely Hendricks G&T which as part of a voucher deal on the Fox website gave a free choice of a bar snack our choice Whitebait very good, however, you pay for... More

We visited Sunday, as we do quite regularly. The service was great, the food even better. We've sampled the roasts on offer in pretty much every establishment in the surrounding area (I'm not one for cooking on a Sunday) and have to say the Fox is our favourite by a clear margin. It's always well presented, fresh and tastes great.... More

The place is tucked amongst the green, and is better accessed on motors. This is classic English pub converted to a restaurant. In summers, this place was buzzing with customers, and the staff was very courteous indeed. The food portions were generous, and the time spent was worth every penny. Both my visits gave me a memorable experience.

I had a business meeting in the Luton area and was recommended The Fox. I arrived early and was greeted by the smiling manageress and a very friendly bar person, Hannigan (?). She recommended a good beer and was happy to set up a tab without taking my card. The patio areas to the front and side are a particular... More

We had a midweek lunch here and when we arrived the place was virtually empty but despite this the service was ridiculously slow and our meals did not arrive together so dishes came as others were finishing theirs. The scallops were great but other starters were overpriced. The fishcakes with hollandaise again was excellent but the salmon was just OK.... More
