The Running Fox Delivery Information

The Running Fox is one of my favourite places to stop for a foodie treat in Northumberland. We have been visiting for years and I have fond memories of taking the kids to feed the ducks in Felton after breakfast here and splashing out on Afternoon Tea with various friends and family over the years. Their style is homemade, plentiful and delicious more than refined and anything I buy from The Running Fox always feels like such good value and like an indulgent treat. 

Last time we visited The Running Fox was in the Autumn. Steve and I tried their click and collect service and ordered a little take away picnic to take to Wallington for our anniversary. It was such a lovely treat. Rules have changed now though and our local store is in Felton which is a 20-30 minute drive for us. I know the rules are open to a bit of interpretation but I personally feel like driving for this length of time for a bit of cake is not essential. 

So I was delighted to discover that The Running Fox has extended their local home delivery service (more info on locations etc.... at the bottom of this post). It is really easy to place an order via their website so I did just that as a weekend treat for myself and the kids when Steve was working. 

The range available for local delivery isn't as big as the selection available in store but there is still plenty to choose from including afternoon tea, cakes, pastries, pies, quiches, tray bakes and chutneys etc..... You can browse and order online via the 'shop' section on The Running Fox website. 

I placed an order around 12 days in advance. You pay online at the point of ordering and the team called me the day before delivery with an estimated delivery time. Our box of treats turned up right on time and I just love the presentation. This would make a wonderful gift to send someone (just check they will be at home). 

We ordered one adult afternoon tea and three children's afternoon teas. Everything was so fresh and the portions were huge as you'd expect. I was chuffed to get my hands on my favourite ever sandwich as part of the afternoon tea (chicken, bacon and chilli jam - I highly recommend) and it did not disappoint. It was packed with filling. Honestly this box of treats was such a pick me up. 

If you don't want to order a full afternoon tea, you can order selected items individually too and there is the option to order a full pie if you fancy pie for dinner one night. I will say, the afternoon teas are huge so you can spread it across two lunches or two people if you want to. 

As part of the children's afternoon tea you can pick a sandwich/sausage roll plus a slice of cake or tray bake and crisps. Again, the portion sizes were good and perfectly fine for tweens and teens. The sandwiches were en-par with the grown up ones in terms of size and quality. The bread used was super fresh too. 

We couldn't fault our Running Fox delivery at all and we are already making plans to place another order over half term. Definitely something to look forward to. 

I suspect The Running Fox will add new products to their website as time progresses. This week, they have added this home schooling treat box which provides a foxy treat for each day of the week. What a treat! They look fantastic value at just £5.50 each too. 

You can place an order for local delivery via the 'shop' section of The Running Fox website. Delivery is £3.50-£5 depending on your zone and delivery is on selected dates and to selected areas across the North East (see table and map below). 

National delivery is also available for selected products although this tends to be for non-baked goods at the moment.  

Let me know if you fancy this, I honestly could not recommend enough. It was such a treat and something to look forward to at the weekend.
