Some nice words from our guests

A belated massive thank you to you and the entire Little Fox team The food was fantastic and service excellent. I know it can be tough feeding and watering so many people at the same time, particularly when timings over run but you all did an outstanding job which we are grateful for.

We had our wedding here and we couldn't have been happier. The staff were amazing from first contact through to the big day, nothing was too much trouble! The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful creating a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and the service was impeccable. We had many compliments from our guests about how smoothly everything went which is down to Louise's great planning and efficient running of the venue and the staff's ability to put the plan into action. Our guests also commented on how nice and helpful all the staff were and I couldn't agree more. The venue looked beautiful thanks to the staff setting up for us along with the florist so we didn't have to lift a finger on the day (Louise even managed to fix our wedding cake). The food was to die for, we had vegans, vegetarians, meat eaters, picky eaters, various allergies and last minute changes to contend with and everyone was catered for and they all raved about how incredible the food was, many of the guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had and they were blown away by the hot buffet too. The setting is obviously beautiful which is one of the reasons we picked your venue but it was the warmth and welcoming nature of all the staff along with the experience and planning that made the day run so smoothly that really added to the enjoyment of the day. Huge thank you to all that were involved.

I just had to write to ‘thank-you’ and your staff for the wonderful time we all had at ‘The Little Fox’ for the refreshment’s following my dear husband Ernie’s funeral on Wednesday 18th September 2019. The venue was perfect, and the staff were so lovely, very attentive, of such a happy disposition and nothing too much trouble. So professional, they are all to be commended. The background music was perfect and well chosen. What can I say about the food- absolutely delicious, so fresh, especially the scouse! Everyone who attended was so complimentary and enjoyed such a lovely time together sharing stories of my Ernie and raising a glass (or two) in a toast. A huge ‘THANK-YOU’!!

A quick email to thank you all for the incredible service we received yesterday for Mum's surprise afternoon tea. Everything was executed perfectly and the food was delicious. I even had the opportunity to thank the chef personally, he was lovely. We received so many lovely comments about the venue and the food; particularly the scones! I know my Mum was completely blown away by everything. The staff worked so hard and were an absolute pleasure to be with. What a fantastic team. Ellie was superb, ensuring everything was were it was supposed to be. We truly had a great time and appreciate the hard work that was put in to ensuring our event was a success. With kindest regards

Just wanted to say a big thank you for yesterday. Everyone had a lovely day - venue, food a staff were fab. We think there will be some future events booked on the back of yesterday. Big thanks from the RSPCA as well - we raised nearly £500 in the end.

Hello Louise, Thank you all at the Little Fox for making my 90th birthday celebration on Sunday 9th July such a success! The food, the service, the general efficiency of the whole day. Everything was great and that is not just our thoughts. Every one of our family and friend made a point of telling us how very much they had enjoyed it. You can safely say, therefore, ..."that The Fox done good!" Many thanks for your help in making it a day to remember.

Dear Louise and the wonderful team at the Little Fox. We can’t thank you enough for all of your hard work on our wedding day! Everything was absolutely perfect and we really did have the best day ever! The food, service and attention to detail was brilliant and lots of our guests commented on what a great venue it was. We have included just a little something to get you through the million events you now have over the summer period! Hope that everything goes well!
Sam and Kev (AKA Mr & Mrs Enright), July 2019
Hello David, Louise and the whole team, I'm sorry it's been a few weeks but we have been a bit busy, anyway without waffling to much, Sam and Kev's wedding was simply the best event that we have had the privilege to be involved in, and your team were a big part in that day: the venue, organisation, the food were all fantastic I can't thank you enough for your part in the event. Many thanks again

Mark Sykes, June 2019
Dear Louise Following on from yesterdays 80th party for Dad just wanted to thank everyone for such a great day. Dad was absolutely made up with everything - food, venue and the staff were all perfect. In my haste to settle the bill and round the kids up I forgot to leave a tip for the staff as a thankyou and so Dad will be calling in soon to drop this off-please let everyone who was involved know this so they know they did a great job and were appreciated. Thanks again, if you need me to write a review or anything just let me know.
Glenn Dawling, June 2019
Dear Louise and Rachel, A very belated note to thank you and your team for the faultless organisation of the celebration of life for our precious son, Mark. We were so impressed with your attention to detail and grateful for the respect and kindness we were shown from start to finish. The Afternoon Tea Buffet was delicious and plentiful and enjoyed by all. We could not have had a nicer and more fitting venue for the occasion and your professionalism and help contributed to making it a very special day despite our great sadness. We did Mark proud.
Ian, Stella and Louise Duncan, March 2019
A huge “thank you” to you and your colleagues for a really good evening on Saturday. Everything was excellent, from our very first meeting, until the end of the evening. We have had a lot of positive feedback from many participants who thoroughly enjoyed your venue and food.
Pat and Jeff, May 2019
Thanks for all your help Rachel. The whole afternoon was perfect. It all went like clockwork. The food, service and venue were all superb. Every one was particularly impressed with the food. Thanks making it a great day.
Helen, April 2019
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us to make our wedding day the day it was! Everything was perfect and we wouldn't change a thing! Everybody has commented on how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was and how amazing everything was setup! You took all the stress out of the day, thank you again and we definitely be recommending you to anybody who asks. Special mention to the barman who went above and beyond and even gave us a lift to our hotel, in all the madness we didn’t catch his name but thank you so much again! Thank you!
Daisy and Chris, April 2019
Dear Louise and team, May I, on behalf of all those members who attended yesterday, thank all of the staff who looked after us so very well. You all worked extremely hard, to ensure that our guests were catered for in every respect. Once again, many thanks to you all.
Ralph Peters, June 2019
Dear Rachel and Louise, thank you both so much for making the 22nd March so successful and memorable! Everything you did was done so professionally and very much appreciated. The menu we chose was great and so many guests commented on both the quality and presentation of all dishes! I would happily recommend The Little Fox for any special occasion without hesitation! You and all the team did a fantastic job – so well done and thank you!
Judi & Kay, March 2019
I would just like to say a big thanks for the organisation of my 60th birthday bash at the Little Fox last Saturday. Everything went as planned and the whole night went very smoothly. Many of my friends commented on the decor of the venue, the friendly staff and the quality of the food on the night. So once again thanks for the professional way in which you conducted the booking and the support on organising the food/balloons etc.
Stuart, February 2019
I have long been a fan of Brunning & Price’s pubs, and I have visited a number of them on many occasions. Besides the actual venues and their décor, I have always been impressed by the ethos, the management style, the careful selection and excellent training of staff, and by the friendly atmosphere and efficient service you provide. 
It should therefore come as no surprise at the quality and level of service that was offered to all the guests at the post-funeral reception I organised at The Little Fox on Monday last, 28th January. Rachel, with whom I made the original booking, then Louise, who oversaw the organisation and the other staff on the day, spared no effort to provide us with a truly delightful occasion. We had an excellent afternoon tea, and I am sure all eighty or so guests would wish to join me in thanking all the staff for a splendid experience. 
I am delighted that a colleague recommended The Little Fox to me and I will have no hesitation in recommending it to my friends and colleagues.
Philip, January 2019
What a fantastic day you organised for us last Friday…everyone was very impressed with the setting, the food and of course, the champagne! A truly fitting celebration for my mother…she’ll be remembered for many years to come.
