Lovely evening

A friend and I attended here recently for dinner. We had a 6.30 reservation, so we were seated quickly. The service at the beginning was great. Our orders were taken promptly, and the food was quick. We both enjoyed our meal. By 8.30, it was becoming very busy and when we are asked for our bill it... read more

Busy, good atmosphere... but the food here is terrible! Main course: seafood linguini was too salty. Steak pie was a game of hunt the meat..... and I found three pieces and one carrot. Dessert was the shared platter ... chocolate mousse was burnt, treacle tart was cold and obviously not home made. We complained but heard nothing back. When we... More

I had a very nice Friday night dinner at The Fox with my husband and we both practically rolled out of the restaurant! The menu choice is extensive and portion sizes are pretty sizeable making the prices very reasonable. I started with salt and Szechuan pepper squid, followed by cod and then a sharing dessert platter while my husband had... More

Visited as a group of six for Sunday lunch - occasion was to celebrate two birthdays - "roast meat", beef and lamb was "boil in the bag", beef was two small slices, totally insufficient for a main meal (it bore no relation to "roast rib of beef" !) - service was poor, we waited ages between courses, when the main...

It's been a while since we've been here. To be honest we stopped coming over the last year or two, as I felt cost cutting was having an impact on the quality of the food and service. We went Saturday around 5.30 on a short notice booking. The food was good quality gastropub food. I had the lamb rump (medium... More

Fine pub with good restaurant and I have no complaints about service. Salt beef hash was fantastic especially with a dollop of HP, but burgers looked dry. I really do find serving chips in a bucket very naff..am I alone?? Not the best selection of real beers that I might have been expecting. I did not see the final bill... More

Went in on a Saturday night at 6pm. A table was available. The waiting manager seated us and said we will be served in a few minutes to get our drinks orders. 5 mins passed and 3 waitresses passed us as well as the waiting manager. At the 10 minute mark a waiter approached us and he didn't say hello,... More

Have eaten at The Fox many times over the years. Recently I took a table of 7 there and having not been for a while was staggered at the menu choice - very impressive selection of, well, everything. It was a Tuesday night and the place was packed. The food was universally good and the service, when you could get... More

Would not visit twice... Do not be lured in to order the lobster tail with your steak... It's a joke. I could have fitted my whole dinner in the mini dust bin my chips were served in. Highly priced bland food and poor service😕

Dined at The Fox on the 15th Feb for a Sunday roast on our way to Luton Airport. A truly wonderful atmosphere with fantastic service and great food - a must for those loving the traditional Sunday Roast. The whole place was packed, so you need to reserve otherwise I can imagine you will be turning around and finding somewhere... More
