Visited here with family for lunch and it was lovely. The food was really good, plenty of it and hot. There is an extensive menu with two for one offers on some meals. The waiting staff are pleasant and helpful - all in all a great place to eat for all the family.

We visit this restaurant regularly and basically it does what it says on the tin! The decor is comfortable and spacious and the staff pleasant and welcoming. There is a child's play area and lots of other little nooks and crannies if you want a quieter moment. The food choice is varied, the sort you would expect from a chain... More

We visited the Fox Cub for a birthday party meal. There is quite a range of meal choices at a very reasonable price. I can see why it would be busy. I chose the chicken and bacon pie with a honey/mustard type of sauce, chips and veg. Chips were the typical current pub flavourless frozen kind. The pie had lots... More

The decor and food is good, however the service is poor. Visited with friends, service not good at all. When the waitress brought our meals we had to wait yet again, and ask for knives and forks to eat the meal. When we had finished it took over an hour for someone to clear the plates from the table. The... More

Looking for a quick early evening meal and decided to try the Fox Cub. Managed to negotiate the tricky roundabout nearby, and found the parking to be easy, with plenty of room. We were quickly seated and had a good choice from the reasonably priced menu. Food was quickly served and good, but the experience was not helped by the... More

We called in on our way to Teesdale from Sunderland and liked the look of the Marston's Fox Cub inn, although it was a new build on what looks like a new Retail Park development. It was very clean which was the only saving grace! We both ordered the soup of the day with a roll/baguette and a Chicken and... More
