8 of my friends had lunch yesterday at the Fox and goose to celebrate a special birthday. We were very impressed. The service by the staff was excellent and they were very friendly.because we were having a late lunch we did find that a lot of the specials had finished but this did not mar our meals.
The food was delicious and hot which is rare these days and all of my friends enjoyed their meals.
When our pudding came the lady whose birthday we were celebrating had a lighted candle in it which we thought was a kind thought of the staff.
As a few of us travelled a long way to get there it was worth the journey so thank you The Fox and Goose

Our first visit and as we live locally we had hoped to have good meal but this was not the case!! The overall impression is that it is a bit like a barn and even this evening which is warmish we fell cold! The staff were very helpful, friendly and charming! The wine was not bad at all but the food was something else!
I had chicken liver pâté, salty and served with soggy brioche, and served on a wooden board which I do not like! My husband had whitebait, five i total but just about ok for £6!
My main course was sirloin. steak,( £18.95, )asked for it rare, it wasn't rare, it was not hot and again served on a wooden board! It was taken away and brought back on a plate by which time it was almost cold and not at all rare! I asked for mustard which was brought to the table in the jar, with a spoon, not what I would expect from a proper resturant!
My husband had calves liver, which was ok, but served with lumpy mash!
I cannot fault the staff who were very helpful and doing their best but there needs to be a bit improvement in the quality and presentation of the food, especially as the food is not cheap! In this day and age of food hygiene etc wooden boards are old fashioned and outdated and not hygienic, get rid of them!
On leaving we could hardly see where we were going because there was no proper lighting in the car park!
Clearly there has been a lot of money spent on the renovation of this place but is will not work without some big improvements.
Come on if you are going to survive in a competitive market get you act together.

Red wine was watered down with clear fluid floating on top, when owner/manageress spilt on white table cloth no mark was made, when I ask which wine it was (to ensure I didn’t reorder) owner/manageress didn’t answer my question. Grated potato was over cooked, rock hard and so salty both husband and myself could not eat. Owner/manageress response was they don’t normally get complaints and if we had informed them while eating they could had done something about it, they wasn’t interested in our views and seemed annoyed we had mentioned issues.

We visited on the saturday of the Easter weekend and found the pub fantastic. The garden was full, with entertainment for the children being well used. I had the cod which was huge, the batter crisp and the hand cut chips were to die for. My husband had the liver and bacon and was swayed to this by the bubble and squeak. We did have to wait but this was expected by how busy it was, not that we were worried as we enjoyed the sun. I would thoroughly reccomend this as a summer destination pub, specially if you have children.

After reading a copole of very good reviews about this pud/restaurant we thought that we would try it on a Saturday evening at about 8pm. Never like seeing an empty car-park, and wasn't surprised to find on entering that we were the only diners - in fact the only customers! Perhaps we were unlucky to go there on an obviously quiet night - but the food was only average at best. Asparagus on a slice of crusty white toast was a disappointment, and the main course was no improvement - sadly when you hear a microwave "ping" 2 minutes before you are served piping hot vegetables, the obvious connection is made! My partners risotto was served with a side salad that showed no imagination at all. On the plus side the young lady doing service could not be faulted - but with a 90% empty restaurant she wasn't exactly rushed off her feet.As I have said, perhaps we were unlucky - but we won't be returning.
