Myself and my partner decided to visit The Fox after I walk past it everyday on the way to work! Now I've read some concerning reviews previously but I'm always one for trying somewhere out myself rather than listening to other people's views or reading...More

This is the second time I've had the picnic afternoon tea here and I would definitely recommend. Each time has been different; both times I've taken a doggy bag home! We felt very looked after- the bar man and manager were friendly and accommodating. Great...More
