Very easy to find off the A1, quaint village, lovely atmosphere. I had the Roast beef, Stilton cheese and red chutney sandwich on homemade white bread, chocolate fudge with pouring cream and a cuppa. Large servings. Absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable in what was on the menu.

Where do we start when reviewing The Running Fox? Every time we visit is exceptional 😊 During our stay this year we made two visits, afternoon tea (a wedding present gift voucher) and again on Sunday (4/12) for breakfast before we started our trip home. Both times the food was delicious, the service is always friendly and with a smile.... More

Just had lunch today as a family of 16 plus 2 very small children. Really lovely relaxing surroundings. It was busy yet nothing was a problem for the staff. We arrived in drabs and drabs yet we were all attended to as soon as we sat down. Staff very friendly and attentive. Food pies sandwiches soup cakes all home made... More

Sublime food, gorgeous looking cakes. Mrs H and I have been here a few times, always booked. Have bought meal cards for friends and rellies, who have never been dissapointed. We have never had a full meal, but the sausage sarnies I've had, have been sublime. Last saturday, I had an open prawn and smoked salmon sandwich, it was incredible.... More

I can only reiterate all the very positive comments that have already been said. The Running Fox serves food of a very high quality, beautifully presented, in a warm and inviting setting and with friendly efficient service. On top of all that, it is perfectly situated by the river in Felton. A gem.
