It was my third visit in the last 6 months for afternoon tea and again I wasn't disappointed! The food was delicious especially the fish and chips and desserts. Peter was extremely helpful when I emailed about changing some things on the bench as I didn't like them and they accommodated to my request. Also on the day I believe... More

I love this place. Such a great twist on afternoon tea with the picnic bench. The food is quickly served and it all tastes amazing.Choice of tea or coffe and a glass of prosecco too. They ask if you have any dietary requirements. Bottom layer savoury and the top full of delicious cakes. If you get through it all id... More

Took my mum for Mother's Day and it was excellent and a perfect Mother's Day treat. Their alternative take on afternoon tea was brilliant and was presented fantastically. The food itself was of a high quality, especially the soup. The staff were great, really friendly and welcoming. Really impressed by the whole place and will be returning.

We'd seen numerous posts about their fabulous picnic benches and thought we'd give it a go, we were a little optimistic as had seen some mixed historic reviews. I'm so glad we gave it a chance, we were made to feel welcome and warm, the picnic bench looked and tasted amazing, we really struggled to demolish it all and ended... More

My favourite bar and restaurant in Ripponden. Great atmosphere, friendly, helpful staff, and excellent food. Live music nights are always really good, and owner/head chef Patrick, and Manager Peter, and his partner Timea are always friendly and welcoming.

Been recently and had a picnic bench, it was nice! apart from the waitresses long tied back hair going all in my food as she was putting the bench down on the table. The bench was nice, explained about my allergy before the bench arrived to a different waitress and there was no confirmation that it was all ok, the... More

This pub is a really nice modern place to go for a quiet mid week beer. Have been at the weekend when it's a lot fuller but foods good and service is good. Only downside is like most of Ripponden other watering holes it shuts on Monday and Tuesday. Big plus though is the fact that in this great walking... More

Visited here one evening after a recommend by a friend who enjoyed the cream tea. On arrival at 8pm we were taken to the right hand side of the restaurant where there was a family with a couple of children and another table of three already seated. The children were crying and shouting and it would have been nice if... More

Took my 3 grandchildren in February at a cost of £16+ each. They were promised various things especially a gift (told each child). The party & food were very average & we were told to contact later re the gift. Mailed the Lego people & contacted the Fox with no sign of the gift. Do not recommend these parties in... More
