We walked past Foxglove earlier in the day and liked the look of their menu. It clearly showed dairy-free and gluten-free options. Often these options look like afterthoughts, but they didn't look like that on this menu. We prefer dairy-free food. We rocked up at around 5.30pm, and were greeted enthusiastically by a handsome maitre d', and shown to a... More

We arrived and went to the bar to order a drink before dinner. The bartender poured my beer and then before my wife could order a wine, he spotted someone he knew or some friends and said hang on for a minute. We then stood there waiting (my beer just sitting on the bar) while he filled a lengthy order... More

Hi There, Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. I'm really sorry to hear you did not have an enjoyable experience with us. Whilst our bartenders always try to acknowledge new customers, I am sorry that you were left waiting for your final drink and found the bartender who served you rude. I would like to investigate...

There was plenty of restaurants to choose from near the water at Wellington. Had a drink outside and decided to have dinner inside. There is a bar menu and restaurant menu. We choose the restaurant menu. I had the Seared Salmon and my partner has the Slow Roast Pork Belly, both perfect. The wine, which was recommended by the waitress,... More

We had a great visit to Foxglove for dinner last night. Great staff, our waitress had good recommendations and knowledge of the menu. My husband and I had the trio of lamb which is a share dish and we absolutely loved it! It came with three types of lamb (the medallion was particularly amazing!), pita breads with dips, and our...

Stopped here for a drink, a bite and a view. It was perfect for all of them. Great pause for the afternoon.

A lovely place to dine or have drinks overlooking the harbour to watch sunset colours on the water. There is the option of dinning on the decking or several areas inside. The restaurant is divided into differnt seating areas. There are open book shelves dividing the areas with books and games to be used. The meals were lovely and the... More

I have visited Foxglove previously but had been to the restaurant, which is always lovely. On Monday night the restaurant was fully booked so we decided to have food from the bar. I was pleasantly surprised lovely grilled fish, salad and chips, and my daughter had a burger. The restaurant here is always lovely, but obviously a great place for... More

Perfect food, exceptional service and great atmosphere. I have been to Foxglove before but it was a few years back now, which I enjoyed, but thought the prices were a bit steep. This week's experience was superb - fish cooked to perfection, side dishes lovely and a divine dessert, and the prices were definitely a little lower than my original... More

Had a table of 13 for Anniversary dinner. Food was fine, although my pork belly wasn't melt in the mouth. Asked for a cake to be made, which was a great size but decorated appallingly!
