My friends and I decided to eat here after The Fox was recommended by a colleague. We weren't disappointed. The food was very good and the service was great. Certainly going to return to this place.

It has been a number of years since I last visited The Fox and I am not quite sure what has happened over that time but it has gone down hill dramatically. The restaurant was half empty which I thought was odd for a Friday night but it soon became apparent why that was. The waitress took us to our... More

A good choice of dishes on the menu. I had cheese souffle and my husband had swordfish. I thought the wine was a bit pricey at more than £7 for a large glass but we really enjoyed our dining experience and will definately return.

Stopped on the off chance as it looked good from the road in the sunshine. I was not disappointed, staff fast and efficient, dinner (hot) & dessert (hot) very tasty, enjoyed every moment. It was not packed but enough cliental to make it busy. We hope to pass by again!!

Basically this is a pub, but with a full restaurant. The menu was varied and offered a wide choice of dishes. My wife and I enjoyed our food, but missed out on what should have been better service. There were several waitresses working, but we seemed to pick the one with the sour expression and although she did supply us... More

Enjoyed a good Sunday lunch with the family and friends at this restaurant. They have the hugest Yorkshire puddings known to man. You will enjoy this place!

We visited the restaurant for a birthday meal and needless to say it was a let down. From unseasoned over cooked steak to uncooked pastry this place was a total let down. We have been in the past and it has steadily been getting worse and worse. Our server who did not check in on us once was unfriendly and... More

So disappointed! We went as a family for lunch and were served by a waitress called 'Shannan' who couldn't be less helpful. Everything seemed a chore for her rolling her eyes at my grandparents when they asked about the menu. Such a shame As credit where credit is due the food was lovely. Poor service just ruins the experience totally... More
