Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great place! Sirloin was really good and cocktails (Flirty Tom & Pink Lady) are more than recommended. Good atmosphere and enjoyable vibe with ease.

Needed a coffee and some lunch to break up a Saturday shopping trip at the mall...both very happy with our choice to go to Fox & Ferret - nice to get out of the main mall area into a more relaxing atmosphere , service and...coffee were good and the bacon and cheese burger (board special) hit the spot perfectly. Would definitely go back....only comment - could do with replacing the carpet in the main bar area , not the most appealing look and smell when you walk in the main door, but didnt notice it once we were seated up in the eating area....More

The bar people are the most ruduest, self centered people I've ever seen in my life. I wouldn't turn up there if you're expecting any level of customer service.

We ended up having dinner at Fox & Ferret because most of the other establishments were closed. The guy who seated us was amiable; he also took our orders. The other servers were not verr friendly though; no one smiled. I asked one for more...water; she said she would bring it to our table but never did. The food was served faster than I expected. The half rack BBQ pork ribs, Novello pasta, and Thai Beef Salad were all delicious, and serving sizes were generous. Prices were reasonable as well. Good dining experience that could have been great had the staff been more friendly and attentive to our needs.More

Our second visit back to the Fox and Ferret was a nice surprise starting from our greeting on arrival. On a nice sunny day, we decided to try the Fox and Ferret pub on Rotherham Street in Riccarton in Christchurch . We were pleasantly surprised...at the standards there, the greeting, service and food all well done and while our meals ordered were basic pub fare, they were generous, well cooked and provided service with a smile and a sense of humour . Nothing not to like , very pleasant outside in the sun, my meal was a generous hamberger inches high, good chips, a generous glass of house wine.More

Have just visited here with a work function, the food was really good but the attitude and service we were met with by the duty manager was terrible. Super disappointing as the young lady originally waiting on our table was lovely. The food was good...and i would’ve otherwise been inclined to come again but unfortunately the rude, unwelcoming and unprofessional behaviour/attitude the DM met us with has seriously clouded the overall experience and we walked away with a really bitter taste.More

This is a classic Kiwi pub. It is great on most occasions. We have visited it numerous times in the past for all different reasons and functions; to watch sports on TV, drinking with friends, dinner before a movie, lunch whilst shopping. The experience is...normally usually pretty reliable; fast service, reasonable food and average pricing. It is somewhere that we have always returned as what we expect is normally what we always get, which is what one is generally after. Our expectations are nicely managed. Last visit there however was a little disappointing. I went in for a sweet treat and a coffee. The service was not friendly, but was fast and efficient. What I ordered was delivered quickly but without a smile. I ordered the Crumble and a flat white. The flat white was delivered in a mug. Wasnt the barista's best work but it did the job. My Crumble was disappointing. On a cold day it would have been the perfect dream. However it was served at such a hot temperature it was borderline offensive. It actually held it's heat for the 15mins that I nursed it. The crumble itself was dry and lumpy. The plum was a little pale and stringy. The apple was a little dry but yet rubbery. The custard was way too hot, lacked sweetness and smoothness. Wont order the Crumble next time. It is crossed off the list.More

This was advertised as a special deal to those of us with the Westfields App. Not only me, but for others, the app wouldn't scan and the staff claimed this deal had nothing to do with Westfields and didn't know how the App worked. There...should have been a meeting between Fox & Ferret and Westfields beforehand to avoid the fiasco and embarrassment. We had already brought 2 drinks so left them there as a donation to someone else and walked out in disgust. Westfields gave us a coffee voucher and the shop we redeemed that at gave us a free muffin. As a former marketing lecturer, when doing deals, get all the ducks lined up in a row. There were many others who couldn't get their Westfields App to sync with Fox & Ferret either.More

Great place for a meal. Visited as a party for 15 and had upstairs all booked for ourselves and kids. Wednesdays deal of 2 for 1 Stone grill is an absolute steal! Food was tasty and wait time was quick considering the restaurant was full....Our waiter was so patient with our big order and very lovely throughout the night. Will certainly be checking out there other deals and menu in the future.More
