    First time visiting the Smokin Fox and will definitely be back. The food was outstanding and the service was first class, very friendly and very welcoming and the venue had a really nice vibe about it too. The Korean chicken and buttermilk chicken burgers are must try options on the menu. Thanks for a great afternoon!

    Overall food was very good, and service was good. It was a quiet lunchtime and we just had main courses. Everyone cleaned their plates, (Except me, as i chose a plant/celeriac steak choice which i didn't like that much, but not because it wasn't cooked well). Value was so-so, but the cost of eating out has soared and expectations for quantities and qualities for the £12-£15 per main course still need to align! I'd go back though.

    Sunday lunch. Football was on but did not disturb diners. Dining area was separate. Good atmosphere and staff were lovely. Two had Katsu Curry which we both enjoyed, one had Cod Loin which she said was delicious. Cocktails and wine reasonably priced, then Raspberry Ruffle dessert which was lovely - a bit solid but once thawed, delicious. Spacious bar with lovely staff centrally located for trains and bus routes.

    Service was rather poor and slow. Felt unwelcome, having been before and it was great. We were rather disappointed this time. However, food was good but not the dining experience wasn’t worth a £18 service charge.

    appearance of venue very inviting and friendly. we were standing at the door for a few minutes before waiting to be attended to, it came to a shock to us that we were id'd at the door even though we were booked in for dinner and soft drinks? the bartender then proceeded to inform us that it was "company policy" that if we're under 18 we must leave by 6pm, at the time it was 4:50pm. not a very friendly way to greet hungry diners who just wanted to grab a bit of food off the train. also why have a completely separate side of the restaurant and bar if you only serve over 18's after 6pm? food and drinks service was quick. waiters/waitresses friendly and chatty. korean fried chicken had a strange smoked taste to it, coconut shrimp tacos were delicious. steak pie was nice but why was there a massive bone in it??🤣🤣i understand that it says that on the menu but my partner and i thought it was particularly strange. the chicken katsu curry i had was also delicious. however, before we even had two bites of our food the waiter came over to check on us, usually you would expect that until you are halfway through your meal, this was done for our starters and mains. restaurant also clean and tidy.

    Good food and ambience _ staff would possibly benefit with an update of what offers are on. We opted for the steak deal but ended up being charged double plus 10% service charge for 2 people. Queried the bill and was corrected. Soul I rush back, probably not
