Amazing Sunday roast at the Fox and Raven today. Have been here many times and the food has been good, but nothing to go wow over, but this meal really was great. We initially tried another pub but was noisy (full of kids) and so...busy, so we decided to stop into the Fox to see if they any availability. We were seated straight away and in around 10 mins after ordering our food arrived. I actually joked we would still be waiting for food at the other pub! Service was amazing and the waitress took the time to even bring my wife extra gravy (the menu did say all you can eat gravy!!!) I had the trio roast and my wife opted for turkey, the meal size was just about right - I didn’t feel over full when finished, so much so we even opted for dessert! Not sure if they have a new chef, but this was bang on!! More of the same please, highly recommendMore

LOVELY PUB lots of atmosphere and friendly staff. Gammon egg and chips faultless. chicken pie....where was the chicken? Pie looked amazing but difficult to find the chicken! 5 small pieces of chicken in hardly any sauce at all. I asked for gravy as everything on...the plate was dry and I wouldn't have been able to eat it without. Really should be served with gravy and pie really should have more filling. If we lived closer I would come again to try something else as it really is a lovely pubMore

Lovely pub to visit on a Sunday for a couple of drinks. Friendly team behind the bar and working in the restaurant. However, I’m very gutted to say after ordering a roast, the beef wasn’t good quality at all.. maybe because we ordered a roast...at 4pm (between lunch and dinner) but it was so dry and grizzly! 🙁 I’d avoid roast dinner and go for fish and chips, burger etc if going for food!More

I went for lunch today with 4 OAPs. Although I'd pre-booked, we still had a choice of inside or out. The staff were very welcoming, friendly, efficient and helpful. The food was brilliant. We had 5 different meals and each one was delicious - according...to my Mum the pastry on the chicken & mushroom pie was the best she'd had in ages!! I couldn't fault it and look forward to going back.More

I agree with you, I think if the restaurant want to reply to customers comments they should write managers feedback. If it is genuine they had a better experience than us !!!
