Recently went for afternoon tea to celebrate an 80th birthday. Beautiful food and they provided tin foil for 'doggy bags'. Only complaint was the parking but would recommend the food very highly ( but not if you are watching your weight)

Really really nice. The proprietor is a character and a gentleman. The food was lovely, we both enjoyed the atmosphere. Only very slight negative was the young girls serving were a bit clumsy and not very attentive. They were however charming and polite. Well worth a visit

Booked a table for the 'festive picnic bench afternoon tea' for my Mum for her 80th birthday. I have to say Peter Kamis at The Fox was incredibly understanding and helpful as I asked for seating by the fire so Mum wouldn't be in a draft and I asked for menu changes to suit an 80 year old and a...

Visited with 2 friends ordered the picnic table for 3. The food was lovely however there were items missing which we had to ask for. We then had to wait 10 minutes for our soup to arrive after asking for this twice. We were informed that our tea and coffee would be delivered "as we transition" from savoury to sweet.... More

My daughter's best friend booked for us to visit, and what a treat was in store for us. There is a lovely ambience about the place. Staff very friendly, and attentive without being overbearing. We all chose the picnic table, which I believe changes it's offering as the seasons move on....the Festive Season picnic table looks very tempting. We started... More

This restaurant WAS on track for 5/5. Myself and two daughters 8 & 1 came for Sunday lunch. Waitress on entering the restaurant was very friendly and helpful, giving me a hand with my pram. A great little extra for mums with tots. The high chair has a blow up surround for smaller babies, excellent. The mushroom and truffle soup... More

We needed to travel to Manchester on Saturday night and decided that it would be great to stop off at somewhere nice on the way. I looked at various options and knowing Ripponden fairly well through work I searched TA for a recommendation. The Fox was No. 1 on the ratings and looked to be just what we were wanting... More

We have been to the Fox Bar & Bistro three times, twice for the normal menu and once for the afternoon tea and the food and service has been great every time.
