I had chicken schnitzel with mushrooms and red wine jus. The chicken was ok, the veg average but the dessert was outstanding! Lemon and lime cheesecake, sounds simple but was anything but.

This was our first time at the FOX restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Both entree and main course were excellent and unfortunately we didn't have room for some desert but they all sounded great. WE also had breakfast there and this was also well done. The restaurant was very clean and quiet and the staff very helpful and friendly.... More

(I believe it was a chai scone). We chose to have tea and were offered an endless supply. A delightful lady greeted us on... More

I went on a Sunday afternoon with two friends and was lucky to get a park close to the hotel (car park full ). The young lady who greeted us was very charming. We were a little early so we ordered a drink and sat on the comfortable loung while we waited for our friend. The high tea was served... More

My mother and I went here for high tea. We decided to leave before the tea was served because the food had made us feel disgusting. Such a shame. While the service was good, the staff being friendly and attentive, the food was awful. The scones were rock hard; the sandwhiches had no flavour and the bread was stale; the... More

We had the high tea. Service was fast and friendly, the food was great and a nice variety on the tiered platter. The restaurant itself was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the whole thing and plan on repeating this experience.

Formally the "Snooty Fox" now renovated and has a pleasant ambience. Great service and food presented well, steak and prawns were delicious.
