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.

The service was good and the food on the whole was pretty reasonable. The only small quibble was the chicken breast in one of the mains was a bit dry.

Arrived on a very busy Friday evening. We were welcomed by a very friendly young woman who showed us to our table which was in a room at the end. We were very pleased to be dining in there as it was pretty noisy around the bar area as is expected on Friday.
We ordered the crunchy chicken to share which was delicious and plenty to share. We then ordered a burger each and they were both of good size so if you want your tummy filled with tasty and hot food this is one to recommend.

Absolutely LOVED our dining experience at the Fox & Ferret Palm! I ordered the Ribeye steak meal & my steak was cooked to perfection, I could cut it with my fork pretty much! We will be back many more times. Service was brilliant, quick to get our drinks and make sure our dining experience was going well and it was super busy so I was impressed! Can’t wait to go back.

Our meal at fox and ferret the palms last night exceeded our expectations and we have dined here a few times in the past. Our lovely waitress was extremely accommodating and attentive without being too interruptive. She didn't blink when we requested several starter dishes as mains and also was able to accommodate with providing a side (onion rings) as a mains. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience. The food was plentiful and appetising. Thank you fox and ferret.
