The Fox & Ferret is our local, we’ve had a lot of great meals there. We had the meat feast which is an epic platter meal. So yummy! And so full! We had our one year old with us which was no problem. Great friendly pub and restaurant. Great food and service.

Took my bestie and her man here to celebrate her birthday. All 3 of us agreed it was the BEST pub meal we have ever had. Shared seafood platter for starters & stone grills for mains while watching a warriors game. Great food & atmosphere. Only complaint was the Warriors lost to the rabbito's in the last minute of the game. Will definitely be back.

Four mums escaping for the night. Everybody was happy with their food. Personally I had the Salmon with salad which was just yummy..Several cocktails were harmed over the course of the evening. Special mention of the berry cocktail. Utterly scrumptious ... decided to make this a more regular event. Many thanks

We have dined several times with first table at the fox and Ferret Palms and the meal is great, the selection on the menu is all good, the servings very generous, the staff very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere great. Happy hour drinks on a Friday are very reasonable too, another great deal. will go again.

Another fabulous meal at F&F The Palms. We were greeted warmly, despite the restaurant being already very busy. The staff were attentive and apologised for any small delays in service. The childrens menu has a good selection with approximately 6 menu choices. If you are a fan of Burgers and also cheese - the new Mac'n'Cheese Burger was rated extremely high by my husband. The filo was a large serving with a tasty filling. Service was very quick, despite the minimal number of staff compared to customers. The atmosphere was excellent and our First Table booking was welcomed. We will absolutely return - my fussy 7 year old also gives a big thumbs up (and was delighted with the provided activitiy pack).

We always go back to Fox and Ferret The Palms as it always guarantees a good feed especially when we range from 9-73 years of age. If in doubt try it out!

Was expecting great food as have eaten over at the Riccarton Fox & Ferret but was a little disappointed as the fish I ordered was dry & the hot chips were average. On the other hand, my husbands steak was huge & was cooked to perfection.

We are a family with toddlers and we were accommodated at the balcony above the bar which we think not a very good spot for us but on the other hand, the server was kind and very accommodating and the food was superb.

Had a great First Table experience - firstly got $5-00 off the booking fee as it was my first time.
Arrived at Fox & Ferret and table was reserved for us - the service was great with friendly and helpful staff. The food arrived on time and was very nice, it was good value and would definitely do this again.

We took our teenaged grand children for dinner. We'd never dined there before, but their menu looked like it would cover all of our wide and varied food preferences. Wow! We weren't disappointed. Service was friendly and fast. Food choices awesome. The food itself was large portions and yummy. We shared the fresh warm bread loaf, fried chicken starters. My husband tried the pie, it was huge and very tasty, the Caesar Salad was also really good. The steak and rib plate was massive and even a teenage boy couldn't quite finish it. The steak was amazing as were the ribs. Lastly we had the chicken and roast vegetables, again great portion size and really tasty. Thanks for a great night with family Fox and Ferret. We will be back again for sure.

What a wonderful dining experience from start to finish. I met a friend for dinner and we were met with welcoming staff who have attentive service throughout the evening. We were left to enjoy our meal without feeling hurried. Huge portions (I got a burger), and my mate got the salad and waffle fries - a new fav! The pub actually held a quiz night from 7, so it got busy in the bar but the dining room position meant we weren't really affected. A great night and I will return

On arrival greeted by staff who were warm and friendly. Led to a table next to the roaring fire which was great as I was freezing.
Kids given kids menu and colouring pens to keep them entertained until meal arrived.
Ordered the steak (rare), ribs, chips, garlic bread for 3 of us and child had the 2 burger kids meal. The steak had smokey flavour cooked to perfection. Ribs had nice sauce on them. Just a small bowl of chips which was perfect along with the chipolate sauce. Too full to eat dessert ! Fussy child ate his two burgers.
Staff constantly filling up water bottles which is great.
Would recommend and would recommend the steak, ribs meal - we went the other week paying full price and came back to have it again. Even treated the 10 year old to this adult meal which he thought was fantastic.

It was a great experience, we tried the hot stone grill and it was amazing. My daughter is a picky eater but she ate her carbonara pasta without any hesitation as it looks well presented and very creamy. We all enjoyed our food and very comfy environment, though its a pub they have a quiet place where you can dine in.

Lone star was a great night out. Awesome place to come to, the food was on par! Had an amazing beef and pork belly burger left feeling full and happy. The fried chicken is a fantastic starter. Top it all of with skillet cookie for dessert. Look forward to booking here again!

Warriors game in progress and bar was noisy and packed so pleased to be shown into dining room away from the bar.
I choose smoked chicken Cabornara and it was delicious, followed by baked lemon cheesecake.
Our waitress McKenzie was very attentive in making sure we had an enjoyable meal.
My Partner was unimpressed with his under cooked sirloin steak and just warm vegetables.
My overall feeling was my utensils weren’t suited for purpose with a knife for pasta and just a dessert spoon for cheesecake when a dessert fork was needed to cut the base.
