We all chose the picnic table, which I believe changes it's offering as the seasons move on....the Festive Season picnic table looks very tempting. We started... More

This restaurant WAS on track for 5/5. Myself and two daughters 8 & 1 came for Sunday lunch. Waitress on entering the restaurant was very friendly and helpful, giving me a hand with my pram. A great little extra for mums with tots. The high chair has a blow up surround for smaller babies, excellent. The mushroom and truffle soup... More

We needed to travel to Manchester on Saturday night and decided that it would be great to stop off at somewhere nice on the way. I looked at various options and knowing Ripponden fairly well through work I searched TA for a recommendation. The Fox was No. 1 on the ratings and looked to be just what we were wanting... More

We have been to the Fox Bar & Bistro three times, twice for the normal menu and once for the afternoon tea and the food and service has been great every time.

Had a great visit with the family, the waiter who took our order was brilliant with the kids, made them laugh, the kids ordered from the kids menu which was good and we had the afternoon tea. The fish and chips were amazing and so was the spiced pumpkin soup, I've never had root vegetable crisps before and they were... More

This restaurant is on the edge of becoming an excellent dining experience it just needs to sharpen up its service standards and food timing (as there were meals brought once others had... More

When we arrived the staff were friendly and we were seated immediately we ordered drinks that came quickly. We had ordered the afternoon tea which came... More
