While Steve is particularly known for his stunning English oak dining tables of all shapes and sizes. He also has more than 25 years experience designing and creating full ranges of furniture for the home, restaurants, hotels and more. The Fox is a great place to see many examples of his work where Steven Baker Furniture has made all the restaurant tables and furniture, the bar, bar tables and stools, outside benches and tables, cellar drop, signage and much of the bedroom furniture.
In the main restaurant you can see the spectacular 4.5 metre long trestle table for family style dining, shoot parties and banquets. It sits around 22 people. There’s a good choice of other sized trestle tables, round pedestal tables and square tables for seating all groups of people comfortably too. All made in wonderful certified, sustainable, locally sourced English ash.
Visit The Fox, Crawley
The pub was recently bought by Lenny and Cessna Carr Roberts. They built up the Bugle Inn Twyford, and have had previous successful projects, including a Michelin Star for Lenny. Together with Kevin Watson, their business partner, they have invested three million pounds from purchase to completion. Resulting in the creation of fifty jobs, five stunning bedrooms, an 8 metre long bar area, and a wonderful 120 seat restaurant with private dining space, and a state-of-the-art kitchen.
The Fox philosophy is very much about prioritising local suppliers and where possible, helping the environment. The restaurant has an A La Carte as well as a BIB gourmand style menu. A BIB gourmand is part of the Michelin family of awards with the focus on flavour, character and value. You can book a table or a room at www.the-fox.pub
