Reviews

Had a lovely evening at Fox and the Ferret. The service was responsive, the food came out fast, and was absolutely delicious! The dessert was perfect. We left super happy and full. Our table was really nicely located, felt nice and private. Atmosphere was really good! Busy place, but we felt relaxed the whole time. Can’t wait to come back!

We have a wonderful, fun time at the Fox & Ferret. From the moment we walked in and were greeted by the friendly staff, to being seated in a luscious warm room with great music playing the background.

The aroma of other customers receiving their meal was exciting our taste buds! Then our food was delivered - wow!!! My steak was cooked to perfection - thank you for a fantastic night - and know that you've got a really great team on board serving people. Hospitality can be a difficult and sometimes thankless job, however, with your team, as a customer, we felt incredibly valued - thank you

What a great night. The food and atmosphere was superb, but best of all was the waitress, she interacted with us throughout the night..she had us in hysterics, never had so much fun and laughs for a long time. Great music in the background, food was fantastic, just an all round great night out.

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

We arrived, was greeted frienly by all the staff we passed. We were able to choose our own table which was a bonus, as we could sit outside.
The food was brought out, hot and tasty witha short wait.
All in all its was a great time, great food and service.

Enjoyed the food, was happily offered a large drink of water with lemon rather than just a carafe of water - much appreciated!

The meals were excellent and accompanied by outstanding customer service made this a great night out. Will certainly return soon.

Took my 2 young daughters on a Thursday night. We had the garlic loaf to start which was yummy, a must try. I had the steak and eggs and it came out cooked perfectly. The girls had the kids burgers and they ate the lot. The staff we're friendly and gave the girls a colouring pack. We sat upstairs so the girls loved the view of the whole place.
So all round great experience. Thank you

The food and service was perfect.

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Food’s not flashy but just good old value for money. Huge portions....of everything. Definitely should have shared a dessert instead of having a whole one as the dessert was like a meal in itself!! Like that you can mix and match your sides so you don’t end up stuck with some limp salad that you didn’t want in the first place. Would go again

Great service from beginning to end. Friendly and helpful staff. Food and atmosphere great. The gas fire was nice. No fuss with voucher.

Was really disappointed with the food as last time we visited it was brilliant. The meat on the stone grill had no flavor. The stone grill provided for the mixed grill is too small to cook all the food at once. The chicken was taking too long to cook as grill cooled so had to ask for chicken to be cooked in the oven. Was provided with hot stone grill but when the chicken was just cooked it was rubbery.
Had to ask for the toffee pudding to be warmed up as cold, even after warmed up it was rubbery and not nice to eat. Even with the discount from First Table i felt ripped off.
Service was great.
Sorry, would not recommend like i usually do.

First time for us at the fox & ferret palms. Thanks to first table and the fast friendly service we received from the waiter (didn't get his name)nothing was a problem as he would say easy peasy. We will be returning. The meals were all good and cooked nicely, especially the steak.

The entire experience was exemplary! The man who welcomed us and served us throughout had incredible table manner and just the right amount of humour. I can't fault the food at all and my Moroccan lamb was more than worth coming back for!

My friend and I had a wonderful evening at the Fox and Ferret at the Palms. Both of our meals were absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff, wait staff and bar staff, were the nicest, friendliest and most helpful people I have had the pleasure of dealing with in a long time. They were fantastic and we will definitely be back again.

You could not fault the staff they were very friendly and most efficient. We thought the food was excellent. I had the Thai Beef Salad, the serving of beef in the salad was generous,tender and very tasty. My husband had a steak meal that was a large meal to perfection. The area of the restaurant were we had our meal was a small dining room off the main area and this was lovely. A great meal in a pleasant atmosphere. There is something here for everyone.

The food was fresh and delicious. I love the way they serve fish & chips with an upgrade on the traditional fish & chip experience. The service was excellent and we were looked after during our dining experience. The waitress was really lovely and service with a smile makes eating out more enjoyable. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. It was good to see families & children well catered for, which I didn't expect. I would definitely recommend and we will dine there again.
