I travelled here with a friend to attend a ticketed event a couple of years ago. However, a few hours after we arrived my friend was thrown out for no apparent reason. When asked why the bouncer gave no reason at all. Naturally, my friend was quite angry about this (the tickets were £20 each). So in their professional capacity... More

I like the pub, but the food was really disappointing. Overcooked and dry burger. Took payment without showing how much they charged, didn't give receipt from card machine. Beers only next time.

Hello Mich, On Monday evening when you visited we were caught unawares by how busy we were going to be. With the BBC Music Concert happening at the ExCel centre and with the new addition of our weekday happy hour, our venue saw a large influx of people. We can assure you that customers were waiting no longer than 20... More

Family member at an event at Excel so left to amuse self. Good features, some comfy sofas, friendly enough bar staff, a bestie boys tune played, err alcohol. Ok drinks expensive, mini bottle of Prosecco £8.95 better off going for a big one. So I went big, so I'm gonna need food too. Major disappointment, the burgers looked lovely but... More

Hello Kimmy, We are pleased that you enjoyed our general ambience, with comfy sofas and friendly staff! Indeed, we offer an array of burgers suiting everyone, from two vegetarian options, chicken burgers, beef burgers and even a double beef burger! I have spoken with the head chef who assures me that the nachos were cooked to specification. The nachos portion... More

FoxBars, Events Marketing Manager at Fox @ Excel, responded to this review

Hello, We are very compelled to get to the bottom of this matter. Since all of our food is cooked fresh on the day, food is made to order and kept under a hot light at all times until service. Please could you email eventsmarketing@foxbars.com, we endeavour to find out what happened, so this never happens again. Could you please... More

I visited here after a trade show at the Excel, not sure why else you'd be out at this part of London otherwise. Drinks - ok, service was good as we attended a function. We wanted to have food but it looked a bit basic and bland. We ended up going next door to the Italian. Worth a visit for... More

Hello Scott, We can't help but disagree, the London Docklands area has lots to offer. Whether it be a show at the O2, a visit to the Cable Car, the Crystal or to escape the corporate vibe of Canary Wharf, the Docklands has a lot to offer and Fox@ExCel is at the heart of that. All our food is cooked... More

Enjoyed a lovely Chicken Caesar salad.Venue is basic and 3 of us had to sit on stools on a round small table.Once our meals were on the table there was no room for anything else.

Hello, We are happy that you enjoyed your Chicken Caesar Salad. We feel that our salad, with pomegranate, hard cheese shavings and anchovies, really takes the Caesar Salad to the next level! Our restaurant area seats 70 customers. And our Warehouse Bar seats around 100. We do also have some poser tables and sofas with stools, which seat more, as... More

Decent menu but expensive drinks - snacks mainly. Better value than the hotels around but still pricey. BUT You can turn up and find out it's closed for a private event.

From salmon fillet, to a Roast on a Sunday, to burritos, Fish&Chips and Quinoa Bites Salad. We are proud of the variety we offer. Our drinks are priced according to our area.

Hello, All our burgers are received fresh each morning from our bakers. Our burger buns are lightly toasted so they retain the burgers shape to hold the jam-packed fillings! Our burgers range from £11.70, which is our classic burger with bacon, cheese and rustic chips. A medium glass of wine ranges from £3.95 to £6.75. For our area we feel... More

What's wrong with this picture? Was it a surprise to them that loads of people turned up wanting lunch at 13:00 as they only had one person serving when there is a conference with 5000 attendees next door!

Hello from Fox@ExCel, Fox@ExCel benefits from being right next door to the ExCel centre. As such we are the perfect venue to escape the ExCel centre for a delicious lunch or after exhibition drinks. The ExCel can host exhibitions for over 115,000 people. At the weekend for example, the ExCel center hosted the London MCM Comic Con which had over... More
