The Colney Fox
The Colney Fox has been around a while and although there are no records pre dating the 1940's, it is thought that it was originally used as a boy's school. In the 1940's and 1950's it was called The Watersplash Hotel, a venue complete with, restaurant and swimming pool. Now restored and renamed, The Colney Fox is still full of heritage and tradition.
Our ivy covered inn is a pleasurable refreshment halt for walkers following the banks of the River Colne, those exploring the nearby nature reserve and for visitors to Willows Farm Village, a unique rural retreat.
Arrived for a table at 2pm was left standing at the bar until 2:30 then was seated eventually at around 3pm then our starters arrived at 3:30 and still no food until gone 4pm And then they forgot my Yorkshire pudding on my roast so they decided to deep fry one and give me that! This is the worst service I have ever come across! Would not recommend to anybody!!!!!
Dined here for Mother’s Day. They had definitely bitten off more than they could chew. Long wait for the food and went it arrived it was luke warm. My nephew ordered by the kids menu and the pizza was part cooked
The Colney Fox was warm and welcoming, and the ambiance was just right for a Sunday lunch.
The roast dinner was ample in its proportions, and was hot and very tasty, loved the fact you can have as much gravy as you like, we had the triple roast and my only gripe would be the beef, unfortunately it was a little chewy, other than that, no complaints at all .
Really understaffed on the day of our visit xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Steaks and chips were cold. Second attempt steak was raw.
It was my birthday . The pub was quite busy but it always takes an age to get served at the bar. The food was excellent though .
Do not like the idea about paying to park I know you get money back on food but not worth just going in for drink.
Good food in very friendly surroundings. Service was good and food delivered hot and on time.
Had a lovely meal at the Colney Fox.
The service was excellent and the food delicious; prices were very reasonable too.
The ambience was very nice and we especially liked the way the pub is fitted out.
Will definitely return.
My two guests and I very much enjoyed the quality of the food and the attentive service. The menu was sufficiently varied to cater for all our tastes (one of which was a veggie!) All in all a very pleasant evening out.
Food and service was good and made changes as requested. Sadly some of the vegetables were under cooked but all in all a good meal.
Very friendly & attentive staff, nice ambience good food & nicely decorated rooms.
An excellent meal and I always enjoy my visits. We receive a friendly welcome and the food is usually first class. Highly recommended.
The meal was excellent and I would go again.
The reservation from OpenTable had not arrived despite my receiving a confirmation, so luck they had space.
Not impressed with OpenTable's reservation system
