A new restaurant has opened at Foxhills Club & Resort in Surrey as the business continues to push forward its £25m redevelopment project.
The hotel and leisure site, set in a 400-acre estate, has launched The Fox dining rooms within its 19th century manor house building as part of a series of new investments within the business.
The Fox dining rooms is a tribute to the life of Charles James Fox, a local resident and charismatic politician of the late 18th century, from whom the club takes its name.
The new restaurant combines glamour with a relaxed feel with three dining areas: the Terrace, the Music Room and the Orangery, and a patio overlooking the grounds.
The new menu has been devised by head chef David Village, with new dishes incorporating a ‘twist on British classics’.
Village said: “It’s been an exciting period with a brand new menu and it’s been fantastic to see the positive response to some of these amazing dishes. Some restaurants are just too formal and we didn’t want that here.
“It’s not brasserie, it’s not fine dining but it’s somewhere in the middle and that is the direction we wanted to take it.”
Alex Michaelis – an award-winning interior designer, known for his work at members’ clubs including, The Groucho and Soho House – was behind the refurbishment.
In August last year, new general manager Tej Walia was appointed to head up the ambitious project.
Foxhills is home to two golf courses and the par-three Manor course, 70 bedrooms, three restaurants, 11 tennis courts, three squash courts, four swimming pools, a spa, conference and meeting facilities, a youth club and a weekly cycling club.
Pam and Ian Hayton purchased the club in 1983, with their son Marc taking over as managing director in 2010.
