Visited with a group of 20 for the picnic bench. We tried to book for 2pm but were told we had to have a 1pm booking. We were all present and correct at 1pm. At 2.20pm we still had no food after complaint twice it finally arrived. Unfortunately it wasn't worth the wait - coleslaw, sausage, ceasar salad and a... More

We had been meaning to pop in for the Tuesday tapas deal for ages as there's no other deal locally for this since El Gato went, and we are big tapas fans. Glad we did as the food was lovely. You can get 6 tapas for £25 including 2 drinks. The choice is quite small as you could imagine as... More

Me and my boyfriend visited on a warm Monday evening (we had booked as we know that they can be busy). The restaurant was quite but service was quick and the staff were friendly. We ordered the antipasti sharer board; I asked for some gluten free bread (this option wasn't on the menu but they happily provided some for me).... More

We went recently to The Fox for a birthday surprise lunch for our friend Lizzy. It proved to be a happy and enjoyable event. The table top picnic,served on mini yogi bear picnic tables was a joy on the eye, and delightful to eat. Five mini savoury and sweet things proved to be filling as well as tasty.

After a two year wait finally managed to get here, and it was well worth the wait. Only been for afternon tea once but think this has spoiled me, be reluctant to go anywhere else. Just changed to Summer menu loved the mini koftas, and the lemon posset was lovely, washed down with a nice glass of Pimms, and one... More

This was possibly the best afternoon tea I've had, maybe because I came away so full! They have gone a step beyond the standard smoked salmon sandwiches and instead we had miniature portions of cottage pie and fish and chips as well as a delicious selection of desserts, all served on a miniature picnic bench. The food was very good,... More

Had a table booked here to sample the picnic bench afternoon tea, had a farse with the deposit and table booking that they got wrong so that wasn't a great start. When we got there, they put 8 of us on the smallest booth that I think would be for 4 people maximum and they had the most upright seats... More

Food well presented but an hours wait for something that has to be prepared booked like afternoon tea is ridiculous especially when they had said they needed the table after 2 hours. Staff proper miserable and food looks better than it is although to be fair some of it was really nice
