Does your partner love a round of golf on the weekend? Well, you could subtly suggest the Ringwood Golf Club because then you can enjoy a leisurely lunch at Mister Fox. Of course, if you both love golf then why not rehydrate yourselves afterwards with a beer or wine from their excellent drinks list. Mister Fox not only has spectacular views over the verdant golf course but a fantastic menu using local ingredients that is also extremely good value. It can be quite busy on the weekend though so I would definitely book a table. Also, if you are looking for a venue for your next function, they have some great event packages.
WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
· A Fox Down Wind – bowl of Mr Fox baked beans, sausage, toasted Dench sourdough, poached egg ($15.00)
· Farro porridge, vanilla chai, fruit compote ($10.00)
· Pulled pork sourdough sandwich, chipotle mayo, lime slaw ($10.00)
· Honey roasted pumpkin ciabatta, parmesan, spinach, sticky parmesan ($8.00)
WHAT WE ATE...
I decided to have the ‘Roast beef focaccia, melted cheddar, spinach, seeded mustard ($10.00)’. The focaccia contained a generous amount of quality ingredients and the oozing cheese amalgamated the contents superbly.

My dining companion chose the ‘Ham, cheese, spinach and egg breakfast pie with chilli jam ($13.00)’. This was also a delicious dish and the spicy relish enhanced the flavours of the pie.
WHAT WE DRANK...
Some great craft beers are on the menu with the Yarra Valley featuring heavily on their wine list. I felt like being a piggy on this occasion so I picked the Iced chocolate ($4.50). This was a perfectly made iced chocolate. The right amount of chocolate and ice-cream and the essential cream on top.
My dining companion grabbed a latte ($3.50) made with Genovese coffee. This was also very nice.
I’ve been to Mister Fox a few times and the staff have always been lovely.
