Visited with friends for lunch which, at £22.95 for three courses, is excellent value. The menu provided five options for each course which, each selection included meat, fish or vegetarian. Tasty combinations of flavours including a wide range of herbs and spices. My starter of...More

We had a set lunch which was very good value for money. An excellent Spanish wine and very tasty lunch made our anniversary perfect.

A pretentious menu which doesn’t quite come up to expectations. Meat is good, sauces bland and vegetables are not freshly cooked. The pastry of the food tart was soggy; of the little extras, the only really nice one was the chocolate truffle at the end.

We took my father here for his birthday and although it was very nice, I have eaten tastier food at other restaurants. The decor is surprisingly nice but service wasn’t as friendly as I expected, especially once it was busier, we were waiting quite some...More

Been going to the Fox and Goose since the early '90's and always go there for a treat. Last night my husband and I were disappointed with the lack of "little touches". We'd reserved a table upstairs and had preprandial drinks in the snug which...More

Booked a table for six for a birthday treat. Decided on the Bar/Bistro area this time and enjoyed the livelier atmosphere. Sadly the service struggled to keep pace with the volume of diners & mistakes happened, then lack of attention became downright disinterest. One guests...More
