We've now been twice to Smales Farm's Fox & Turtle and both times had similar experiences. It's a freehouse so there's a decent selection of craft beers and some great wine and cocktails on offer. The shared plates are good and actually generously proportioned - highlights include the buttermilk chicken, jalapeno wontons and the squid. One area where they have fallen down (in my opinion) twice was the table service - I'm not sure if it's the fact that it's a communal space or it's just a teething issue, but on both experiences, we had to track down a staff member to get a food order in. No biggie, and it certainly wouldn't put me off a return visit.
