We hadn't booked, but managed to get a table in the Bar Area. Ordered food and had drinks while waiting. Food very good and staff very friendly.

We decided to shut the kitchen and hand up the apron for tonight. We phoned and booked a table for 8.15. On arrival we were welcomed and shown to our table but opted to order our drinks at the bar. I was driving so ordered a fruit drink and my husband enjoyed his accidental pint of fox. I enjoyed my... More

We hadn't been to the Fox since it had changed from being Chef and Brewer, which was frankly awful. We were pleasantly surprised. The interior was really nice, the staff very friendly and attentive and the food pleasant. My husband had the steak burger, which he said was delicious and I had a gluten free pizza. This wasn't very tasty,... More

Sunday lunch, three of us had roasts which were above average. My wife's Bass was a very small portion and Asian stir fry veg a little tasteless. The staff manly young girls were efficient and friendly. I felt that the tables we sat at were a little too close to other diners. All in all a pleasant experience, but not... More

Recently visited here for lunch .Quite busy . Food was ok but would have expected the expensive soup of the day to come with bread ! Fish and chips were nice although a bit expensive

I believe my friends and I were having a meal the same day as the previous person with the poor review. If this was the same lady,she was ever so rude to the manager and his staff,and from the look of the photo provided,it would seem there wasn't much food left on the plate to return and complain about. I... More
