Decided to try the Foxhunter for the first time. Noted the dire hygiene rating but decided to stay due to it's reputation. Food was fine, but the experience was a little bland.

I visited as a party of ten on a quiet Monday evening 7th Dec. The service was extremely patchy. In spite of having pre-ordered our food requirements the starters did not arrive together with some people almost finishing theirs before others had even started.

Food and service were fine but a dimmer switch would help create a better atmosphere for evening meals. Nice to have a cross between pub and restaurant rather than one or t'other.

I think a lot of these great reviews go back a year or so. It's not that great. Really friendly and attentive staff and the menu offers reasonable choice at a reasonable price. But it is pretty average food to be honest. We've been twice. The Sunday lunch was fine but a bit sparse and I really want my veg... More

Website out of date and therefore more expensive than advertised. Cold plates, no choice how you want your meat cooked, veg served poorly and expensive.
