Living in the area at the time, we have eaten a few times here. Most of the dishes here are a mix of Aussie pub and traditional English fare. Parking is usually OK unless it's the week-end or holiday's .Food was pretty good and love the old décor.

Shame but this icon of the hills burnt down a year ago, so is no more. Not sure if it will rebuild. Food and atmosphere was good.

Went to Snooty Fox for lunch on my birthday, it was delicious & loved the atmosphere & customer service. So sad that it burnt down on Christmas night, hopefully they'll rebuild & I can enjoy another birthday lunch there this year!

The food is pretty average, but the location is good. Would go back there with friends from out of town.

Dined here on August the 19th with 2 friends and all I can say is wow! The restaurant had a lovely warm feel to it, whilst being busy, but not over crowded. I had the fish special and both of my friends had the porter house (cooked to perfection) followed by a sticky date and the banana pudding as we... More

We went here for a July luncheon. No welcome, sit wherever. They had set the room in 4 very long tables, shoulder to shoulder, making it rather difficult to get in and out of your seat. Drinks had to be bought at the bar, so everyone was up and down like yoyos to allow those sitting either side to get... More

This was a lovely relaxed atmosphere for a leisurley Friday birthday lunch and as we had... More

I have been to the Snooty Fox on many occassions for both lunch & dinner & to be completely honest, i've never been disappointed. My friends & i have always found the service to be good/friendly & particularly the food, to be so delicious. As others have mentioned, just like old fashioned home cooked meals. Lots of flavour in all... More

The Snooty Fox has a lovely atmosphere. An English menu. And good beers on tap for the men. A nice place to go for a meal. Better for couples than families I think.

Sunday roast sounded good - but cold and one potato. Looked around at other people's roast - still only one potato. Carrots were one step up from raw. Water tasted like it came out of a fish bowl and then to top it all there was no milk to make my wife's hot chocolate. By the way you might need... More
