Family trip for afternoon tea. We all had the picnic tables which is a lovely twist on the traditional afternoon tea including chicken caesar salad, creamy homemade coleslaw and a variety of desserts - delicious! We had small children in our party whom the staff were great with. I would highly recommend a trip here. I understand the picnic tables... More

We had a very tasty high tea meal here with family and really enjoyed the tasty treats that were on offer. It is a quirky interesting place that I really liked the atmosphere of it and definitely recommend people give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

I have been for many afternoon teas but this was by far one of the best! Excellent food and great value for money. We had 4 picnic benches and 2 children's 3 course meals. The children's meals were also lovely and well worth the money but device was a little slow with those. Had to prompt servers a few times... More

6 dishes, £25 per couple including a very good glass of wine and it was delicious! I think we tried everything off the board and every dish was very good. One of the best tapas I have had. They have a wonderful gin menu and tried a gorgeous lemon posset for dessert. We were so well looked after, I could... More

We visited at lunchtime and booked a prosecco picnic bench afternoon tea for our 5th wedding anniversary. I had seen the pictures on Facebook and thought they looked brill. The service was fantastic and can't fault it. My only problem was in an empty restaurant they sat another couple right next to us which I thought was quite annoying. I... More

Had visited the Fox for their famous picnic bench afternoon tea 2 years ago and was super excited to be invited again. This visit was however a different experience, the welcome was warm but after that service quite lacklustre. The eating area generally seemed less luxurious with the cushion in my chair being thoroughly uncomfortable, table sticky and drinks glasses,... More

Disappointing first visit today, unfortunately I will not be returning! Traveled from Leeds with two friends after seeing fabulous pictures online of the bench style afternoon tea. Downstairs the pub looks quite smart but we then were sat upstairs where it looked a lot more tired and untidy, like it was suffering from a long and busy day, we arrived... More
