Having been born and raised in the area, I was looking forward to heading to The Fox goes Free for a nice evening out with lovely food and great ambience - just like I used to remember. The ambience was fantastic with a log fire and a real local pub feel. The food however has really gone downhill. All our courses had to be sent back - even the bread was stale. The fish was overlooked and greasy. The duck was hard, burnt and rock hard. Sending our food back was greeted with patronising comments such as this is the way it is supposed to be. Our meals in the end were replaced with ones of a better quality. The young man serving us offered a complimentary free drink as a gesture for the poor quality of the food. This would have been a good act of customer service had our glass not been topped up with about half water and half white wine. This was a slap in the face and great insult. But then again what can you expect when the place was being run by immature & unprofessional young people. All my friends and family who still live in the area have been well informed to stay away! Fox Goes Free? Or Fox Got Shot?
