I too am surprised by the negative review of this pub/restaurant which I have been enjoying for many years. I can only think that the reviewer below reviewed the wrong restaurant having posted 4 reviews on the same date in November 2012 including one for the Black Fox (when their visit there was in April 2012), (or is it coincidental that another pub/restaurant re-opened the same week in Liphook)? If the food was as described, why, oh why, not mention it on the night and allow the restaurant to do something about it?
My own experience is completely different, this pub/restaurant is my preferred choice in the Liphook area and I have been eating there with complete satisfaction for a number of years. The steaks served are sourced from the North East of Scotland and are delicious. My favourite fish dishes include Torbay sole wrapped in parma ham, Smoked Haddock in a whisky sauce and baby squid in a tempura batter with a sweet chilli sauce! This restaurant is also the preferred choice of the Liphook & District Businessman’s Association (of which I am a member) for their monthly dinner/business meetings when the owner/chef provides a choice of starters/main courses for around 20 people. I am also Chair of the Swaziland Society and I have been organising an annual member’s lunch, again with multiple choices of starter/main courses, for between 50 to 60 people. The members of both organisations are always complimentary about the quality and choice of food. The Swaziland Society has been having this annual lunch at the Black Fox since 1994 and we would not be returning year on year if the food and service was not exemplary.
