    Booked a meal at the Fox after being in the area returning from holidays. The staff were pleasant and polite. There were four people in our party, three ordered starters, only two came. When I enquired about my Camembert bites the waitress went to see where they were. When they arrived, it was only the crumb casing as all the cheese had melted out in the fryer apparently. The rest of the food was good. Although we booked at 8pm, the restaurant was very noisy with a large table including children that were running around, screaming and crying. I know this is not the restaurant’s fault but it affected the visit. I would visit again when in the area, but not on a Saturday evening.

    We were looked after very well by Chelsea and Craig who delivered friendly attentive service. The food and service has improved a lot since our previous visit and we will happily go back. Thank you Chelsea and Craig for looking after us today.

    Warm welcome from staff. Service was good. Main course of Hunter’s chicken schnitzel was very dry with very little pancetta, cheese or Q+BBQ sauce. Chips were also very dry - disappointed considering the main course was £13.95

    Lovely staff, attentive and pleasant...very patient with elderly guests. Food was good but a bit bland, but maybe Im expecting too much from a gastro pub. Good place to meet friends, nice atmosphere

    I have been a lunchtîme patron of The Fox for several years prior to the current epidemic so wanted to go there for a birthday lunch with my family. I have always found the food and service excellent. Today the service was very good and the food taste was also good but unfortunately all meals were not hot which is a comment I have seen on the website before. Unfortunately it has put me off returning. I didn’t raise the issue to avoid embarrassing my family but it has put me off a return visit.

    Food was very good , lunchtime menu could have had a little more choice. Service was quick and well presented, lovely log fires burning made good welcoming in a lovely old pub.

    A really disappointing visit to The Fox. I have been a number of times in the past years and it is always hot and miss, Sally this time it was a miss. The waiting staff were all really good and welcoming, and I did feel sorry for our waitress who tried really hard in what must have been difficult circumstances for her. The problem we had was that so much of the menu wasn't available. I appreciate that a lot of places are having issues with their supply chain but I'm not sure that was the only reason so many choices were unavailable. I did ask the waitress and she said that in part it was due to selling out during the day. I believe there is a new general manager and I hope this is something that he can address, a restaurant really should be able to deliver a good portion of the menu on a Saturday night. The food we did get was nice, although the hunters chicken schnitzel was a strange variation on the recipe. The building has always been beautiful and it still is. Sadly it seems to be suffering a bit at the moment with broken chairs and the toilets were looking very shabby, with two out of the three seats broken. While they did seem to be clean there was lots of mess and I'm not sure how often they were checked. I will try Fox again in a month or so to see if the new manager has addressed the issues but I advise people to go with an open mind.

    Once again we found the Fox at Caterham to be a really excellent place to lunch. We had an unexpected visitor and used them. The staff were excellent especially the bar man who se inter reactor was great and certainly set the tone for our stay. Well done

    Delivery of order was slow and when it eventually arrived two meals out of four had to be returned as food was cold. One when returned was fine but the other had only been partially heated. This was related to the waiter and after he had spoken to the kitchen and manager the cost of the meal was deducted from the bill. The experience wouldn't stop me eating at the The Fox but maybe more staff are needed to give a quicker service.

    Unfortunately we sat by the fire exit doors. The food got cold quickly as the doors were constantly being opened. We sat for ages and no one cleared the table before we left.

    We booked; We ordered: A Cod & Chips and a Handmade Fishcake - no discernible lobster, very little white fish, bulked up with mashed potatoes! Served with two burnt 'sad' sticks of asparagus. Complained and four barely cooked sticks were served. PLUS the House Elderflower drink was SO watered down, it was added to with syrup. Altogether a very disappointing meal.

    The restaurant was comfortable and welcoming and tables were spaced out nicely. The staff were helpful and polite. The food was amazing. I had pork belly and banoffee pie. I would definitely go again.

    Sadly the crispy duck salad was plentiful but slimy and the duck was almost cremated and inedible! No one asked if our meal was OK even though our plates were cleared half full ... I guess they must have known the answer that would follow.

    For a father's day treat this experience was really disappointing. Each course was missing a component, either a dip in the starter, stuffing in the main course or sauce in the pudding. The worst part was the chicken in the main course which was plain raw. Staff didn't show any signs of concern, suggesting it was not blood we were seeing, dripping from the meat, and it wasn't their fault as the meat is cooked elsewhere. They replaced the plate with another raw chicken piece, served just on its own, which we politely declined. No other meal was offered, so our boy had no main course to eat. I would suggest this venue gets a hygiene and safety check before customers get food poisoning. This was meant to be not only a special treat for my husband as a father's day but it was the very first outing for us in a year. Due to the way we were treated today, we won’t be supporting the hospitality industry for a very long time and certainly won’t be returning to this dangerous place.
