Reviews

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

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.

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.

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).
