We had a very tasty lunch today at the Urban Fox. In contrast to the reviews below, I thought the portion sizes for the burgers were very generous - The burgers were stacked high & there were plenty of chips!

The man serving us (maybe the owner?) was really friendly, & you could tell that he was passionate about the food & drinks he was serving. The cocktail of the day was one that he had concocted & sounded fantastic although it felt a bit early in the day for us to try it!

Good location near the meadows, & a nice friendly atmosphere. I would definitely like to go back to try out more of the menu!

Four of us with two vouchers. We got the sharing platter with 10 portions (apparently starters) . Each starter was the equivalent of two tiny mouthfuls. I have had many a sharing platter that I can't finish! Biggest disappointment was when we had a little bit of pate left we asked for a little more bread and were subsequently charged £2.50 which was a joke. Left without tipping as was fuming with the cheek of it. Staff were friendly but must be more clear that If you go for the Groupon deal you get very small portions.

Very disappointing that by 7:30pm on a Saturday evening, both meat dishes on the mains menu were gone. Saying that , both the squid starter and the Duck dish which I had were beautifully cooked and very tasty . Service was also very slow considering the small number of must customers who were in. The Urban Fox really must raise there game . There are a lot of competing restaurants in the area,

We bought a Groupon deal (£19.50) for a 5 item sharing platter and a bottle of house wine for our first visit to this restaurant and swiftly purchased another as it is a great deal and the restaurant is fabulous.

Nice decor, with laid back vibe. Not too busy when we arrived but got a few more customers before we left. Staff were friendly.

The house wine was good but the food was delicious. All freshly made. We choose halloumi, falafel, meatballs, chicken goujons and fish goujons and added some chips and bread. The food was well cooked and presented nicely. The batter on the goujons was very light and not at all greasy.

We will be back with our next voucher and will definitely book a table soon and choose from the main menu.
