About us

FOX is a restaurant concept by restauranteur Danny Fox.

It features an energetic open kitchen centering around 2 pieces of kit, a feature wood-burning Pizza oven and an open-fire grill taking centre stage for all to see. It’s a concept based on the beauty of ‘Wood-fired’ cooking techniques, and takes you back to an ideal  of serving amazing products simply and well.

Situated in the heart of Hale Barns on ‘The Square’ development alongside Booths supermarket and Fired Earth, we enjoy the benefit of easy car parking for up to 170 cars! So forget trying to struggle to find a space in Hale, Knutsford or Alderley edge, come today, park with ease and enjoy


The combination of wood, fire, smoke, salt and meat is probably the first recipe discovered by man. Move on a couple of centuries, and it is still the healthiest way to eat any form of protein. The cooking over raw flame and intense heat produces the most miraculous transformation in all cuisine.

Classic cuts of meat and fish will then adorn the feature grill, kissed by fire over open embers is simply the best way to enjoy great steaks, chicken or fish.

Our Beef is all Black Angus cattle, locally sourced from Cheshire and Shropshire and aged for 35 days.

All our fish and shellfish are responsibly caught from sustainable sources. Be it native lobster from the west coast of Scotland or hand dived scallops from Barra, we go to great lengths to ensure we get the best fish daily.



The beauty of Sourdough is it does the work for you! As a result of the ‘long fermentation process’ (it takes at least 36 hours for our Sourdough to prove) the enzymes do all the hard work for you and break down the gluten and the starch delivering a highly digestible, low G.I. bread, which is much easier on the body, and gives you a light, crispy base to enjoy with incredible toppings.

Our Sourdough pizzas are soft and chewy in parts and blistered and crackled in others from the heat of the wood-burning oven.

We’ve created fresh takes on classic pizza standbys as well as original inventions showcasing innovative, seasonal and local ingredients.


The drinks menu showcases craft beers as well as well known names in both bottle and draught.

Our cocktail list celebrates the ‘classics’ combined with some bespoke “Signature” creations formulated by the team.

We also have an exceptional wine list to suit all tastes and pockets! Great examples of varietals served by the glass and bottle, combined with some amazing wines from America & New Zealand as well as the “Old World”.

Or if you fancy something special we have a “Fine and Rare Fox” list with wines from Tignanello, Sassicaia or Gaja, we have a great selection, just ask your server for details.

FOX Coffee

Coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world, second only, to crude oil. With that in mind I wanted to find a coffee bean that delivered an amazing espresso but at the same time ensured that it was Rainforest Alliance Certified.

This means our 100% Arabica beans, that come from Fortaleza in Brazil, are farmed to conserve wildlife, safeguard soils & waterways and protect workers, their families and local communities.

We are proud to be involved, we hope you enjoy our blend.
