New Surrey restaurant, The Fox dining rooms, is now firmly in the affections of diners following its successful spring opening.
With a new menu, focusing on locally-sourced ingredients and striking décor, the revamped venue has added an attractive new choice for Surrey residents and visitors.
Situated in the 19th-century Manor House at Foxhills Club & Resort, The Fox dining rooms is seen as a fitting tribute to the life of Charles James Fox, a local resident and charismatic politician of the late 18th century, from whom the club takes its name.
Fox enjoyed an influential political career, although much of his fame arose from his personal life as a bon viveur. But his love of indulgence, passion for good restaurants, wine and spending time with friends, fits in well with the overall ethos at Foxhills. Expelled from Eton for being “too witty and a little too wicked”, the new dining experience adds a modern touch with a nod to his spirit.
The new restaurant combines glamour with a relaxed feel with three dining areas: the Terrace, the Music Room and the Orangery, and a beautiful patio overlooking the grounds. It’s also open throughout the day offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and a Sunday Carvery.
There is no let-up in the quality of the food on offer at Foxhills. Under the guidance of head chef David Village – who is carving out a reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting up-and-coming chefs – there is a twist on British classics, with a strong line-up of vegetarian and vegan dishes to choose from and a children’s menu is also available.
Village said: “It’s been an exciting period with a brand new menu and it’s been fantastic to see the positive response to some of these amazing dishes. Some restaurants are just too formal and we didn’t want that here. Matej on service and Valente on meet-and-greet will put our guests at ease from the moment they arrive.
“It’s not brasserie, it’s not fine dining but it’s somewhere in the middle and that is the direction we wanted to take it.”
Alex Michaelis – an award-winning interior designer, known for his work at members’ clubs including, The Groucho and Soho House – was behind the refurbishment which has added a touch of glamour to the new look with the furnishings and décor.
