Mrs Linda Cribbens
Meal at Fox & Hounds Saturday 14th May 2005
We visited your restaurant last Saturday at 8pm.
I asked beforehand for a copy of the menu to be faxed to me. This did not appear, but a lady in the kitchen answered the telephone and politely gave me an idea of what was on the menu.
Upon entering the restaurant these was a rather unpleasant smell a little like cabbage which was a little off putting.
The idea of the comfy settees in the bar area was good, but the actual restaurant surroundings themselves were very poor.
I could see that a minimalistic approach was trying to be achieved, but the pine tables and chairs, heavily patterned carpet did not match the menu.
Food - There was not a great selection of foods on the menu. I chose Thai fish cakes with a ginger relish. The Thai cakes were quite bland, no real taste to them. and the ginger was not really apparent .
For the main course I had venison. It was nicely cooked. A good selection of vegetables, but the did not stay hot and became cold very quickly.
The sauce on the venison could have been more special. It seemed to be just a gravy! Shame.
It would have been nice to be offered some sauces, i.e. mustard, etc. to go with the meal as the meal itself seemed too dry.
We decided not to purchase a sweet but had coffee, which came along with some nice chocoloates, but at 2.25 a cup, a little expensive we thought.
In total there were only 4 tables occupied including ourselves which did not create the right ambience.
The wine list was good.
We visited the restaurant as it is local to ourselves.
We were looking for a special meal, in nice surroundings with good wholesome food that was a little out of the ordinary..
We felt disappointed at the end of our meal.
At a cost of over 50.00 for 2 people, we will not be eating here again and feel very reluctant to recommend you to our friends.
I hope that you find these comments useful and are able to use them to improve things in your restaurant.
