Children's Afternoon Tea
Children's Afternoon tea is priced at £5.95 per child. For this they will receive a freshly made sandwich of their choice, a bag of crisps and a scone or cake plus unlimited juice. Our children LOVE cake and were very pleased with the gigantic slices they were served. I liked how afternoon tea for children was served on a tea stand just like the grown up version. The ham and cheese were of very good quality too and the bread was freshly baked and soft. Perfect!
Afternoon Tea for Grown Ups
Grandma joined us for afternoon tea and we ordered traditional afternoon tea for £10 each. For this you can choose any sandwich from the menu, a slice of homemade quiche or pie (we ordered one of each and shared), a cream scone and any cake from the counter plus unlimited tea or coffee. I found this to be exceptional value for money. All of the food is freshly baked on site and tastes absolutely amazing. We would say that there is far too much though and we felt a bit sick after we over indulged! The staff are happy to box up anything you don't eat to take home.
You absolutely cannot fault the food at The Running Fox - the staff do seem a little too busy at times though and we needed to catch their attention a few times to ask for our drinks to be re-filled. This and the fact that you are only given one plate (we had to cover ours with napkins after eating our pie in order to eat our scone and cake) are only minor niggles and I am being picky. I'm sure if I had managed to catch a member of staff's attention they would have given us an extra plate if we'd asked.
Feeding the ducks
A trip to Felton would not be complete without feeding the friendly ducks on the river outside. There is a bucket full of stale bread by the door of The Running Fox for children to help themselves to which is a lovely touch. The ducks in Felton are always happy to see you and we found their chatter to be hilarious.
Super excited with their free duck bread!
Our total bill for two adults and three children was £38 (including duck bread) We brought our leftovers home for supper so this worked out to be very good value for us.
The Running Fox is a bakery and you can buy fresh bread, cakes, pies and quiches from their counter. We are hoping the visit Warkworth Castle over Easter and will definitely be popping in the fill our picnic basket up with treats en-route.
