Frequent visitors to the Fox. Always enjoy our times spent there. Wide choice of drinks, vast choice on the menu, all offering great value for money. The staff are always helpful and enthusiastic, would definitely recommend!

At the end of a country walk we arrived in Quorn ready for a meal. We popped into the Quorndon Fox. We received a grumpy greeting from a young man behind the bar but undeterred we politely asked to see the menu. The young man went to the end of the bar to fetch them. He walked back and as he passed us his arm came over the bar to hand us the menu. No eye contact, no pleasantries. Just a grimace on his face. Needless to say we put the menu down and walked out.
Never again.

Awful attitude
We decided to have a quick coffee around 5ish after work, 3 of us and one was disabled and walks with the use of a stick. We decided to sit round the back, not realising this was allegedly a 'dining only' area. only 2 elderly diners in there at the time. We were approached by a young male waiter who wanted us to order, we informed him we were just having a coffee and he said quite huffily we werent allowed to sit there, it was diners only and we had to move, we asked that we be allowed to finish the coffee and we'd remove ourselves to the bar. He was adamant we had to move, he didnt make the rules and thats what they were, rules, by this time we asked to see the manager so he flounced off to fetch him. Well, im assuming it was the manager, next thing you know, a short stocky, very grubby looking (thought he was the cellar man for a start judging by his appearance) appeared and as soon as we saw him we could see he was going to be rude, and we werent disappointed, wasnt prepared to listen, wouldnt allow us to finish our coffee despite it being extremely quiet and empty, and virtually escorted his from the area and was quite happy to give us an argument about iis business practices and management skills. His overall impression/aggressive body language was that he used to be a 'doorman'. Certainly shouldnt have been a manager of a pub requiring tact, dipomacy and people skills!! If this was just having a just a coffee and sitting in the wrong place, god help you if you ever need to complain about anything else. Go to The Manor, The White Horse or the Exchange instead!!

Disatisfied Local Businessman
Booked table for 5 on line 3days prior for 7.00pm.
Arrived at 6.45, ordered drinks at bar and were told that our table was being 'cleared' and that the Barman would advise when ready.
We sat in the bar in view of the aforementioned Barman who when reminded at 7.25 advised that the restaurant staff had forgotten to tell him !! We were then seated at a table that was clearly available when we arrived !!!!!.
Food was excellent but service dis-organised. Upon complaining we were told that they had had a very busy day - surely every diner should receive the same level of good service.

not enough compliments
people find it easy to complain but not compliment when things are right. I have been a regular at the quorndon since the new landlady has been their things have definately improved greatly since liz left and she is always there whether she should be, to please the customers. I have had great experiences and even if something has gone wrong its been dealt with efficiently andt for the best for the customers. I know for a fact that the present landlady will be there even on her days off because she wants the pub to be successful and guests to be happy. Definately worth a visit and if you come look me up am a regular there and enjoy every minute.

love it
i have been a customer of the QF for several years and have to say that even though there was a drop in standards at the change of managers now it is running superbly mainly due to the talents of the landlady who is very businesslike and professional and is there to please us customers, and leads her staff well. The only downfall is the lack of choice in beers.

Good Food and Good Service
I also have to defend the Quorndon Fox, They have a fantastic garden with patio heaters to the rear and the only time I know that the Manageress has not allowed food to be served on the lawn is when it is a health and safety issue and danagerous for the staff. A must see garden with friendly people and great service. Good value for money.

We dine at the Quorndon Fox on a regular basis, we always get good food and the service is excellent.. I think the Manageress and her team do a remarkable job, they are all very polite and courtesy and we have never walked away having a bad experience.... Highly recommended. Good Quality

I agree entirelywith one of the previous posts, don'f bother to go!!
Last night my meal was very dry, we were not offered any condiments till half way through the meal, for which we were offered a complimentary coffee, the dessert was heavy and tasteless. We were sreved by a series of little girls who did not seem to know what they were doing. To add insult to injury we were asked to pay the bill at 9.45pm as the boss wanted to cash up!!
Go elsewhere

A correction to rosette rating
Resturant meal and service highly recommended. Value for money wise - five rosettes.

All in all extremely good value.
At 73 and a grumpy old man I'm extremely fussy about food and service. It was four years since last having a meal at the (Bulls Head) Quorndon Fox and reading comments on these pages before booking a table I nearly didn't! Glad I did! Food and service? At 27 plus a good tip meal for four ageing adults it was excellent value value for money and is highly recommended.

Oh dear.
I didn't think I'd go back to the Quorndon Fox after my last experiece, but events conspired against me today that meant I had to visit again.

The service is getting worse and worse in this place. The food was acceptable today but beat the drinks to the table by a good five minutes and the ability of staff to wander about aimlessly without looking at customers is amazing.

When other local pubs like The Manor at Quorn or even sister pub The Badger's Sett at Anstey can turn in consistently high service, why can the Fox not get it right?

Very, very poor.

Disgruntled Customer
Distinctly unimpressed with the Fox of late. Since Liz left to go to a pub in Leeds, the pub has struggled to keep up to her high standards.

Of late the quality of service has plummeted and simple things like getting drinks delivered to the table or being asked if everything is okay has gone by the wayside.

I'm afraid I won't be back for a while.....

waitress at the fox
i am going to defend the quorndon fox's rule of not eating outside, we are having problems with staff shortages and would like it if customers could bear with us while we try to train new waitresses up to the required standard. the rule is only in place on days where we have unexpected business and therefore cannot cater for the guests wishing to eat on the grass. we do apologise excessively on these occasions and would not like to think that this does not deter guest from visiting us again.

Not so good
My wife and I visited The Quorndon Fox last Saturday evening for a glass of wine. Whilst drinking the wine the/a chef passed through the bar from the kitchen. The standard of his dress and cleanliness was so bad that we both said that we would never eat in this establishment. Dirty (white?) chefs jacket, no hat, no apron, dirty blue check chef's trousers rolled up to the knee and black, dirty looking, trainer shoes. What an advertisment for the establishment - perhaps if all your guests were able to see this standard of cleanliness the 'pub wouldn't be so busy. With a combined total of 50 years of so in commercial and educational catering neither of us have witness such a bad example - what a shame !!

Poor food and ridiculous rules
Staff were unhelpful
Ridiculous rule of not being allowed to eat on certain tables, so forced to eat inside on a nice day. Quality of food very poor and price too expensive for what's received. Will not be eating there again.
