I had a quick dinner at the Fox after a work night at Excel and all in all I was not disappointed. Fish & Chips was pretty good and surprisingly crispy, however choice is very limited on the menu and prices more close to those of a proper restaurant (but without the same quality). The area doesn't really offer much... More

I'm sorry to give just 3 dots in my review. Being in the area for an exhibition at the ExCeL centre, this pub is in a perfect location for your after-work drink. Great lively atmosphere, terrific selection of beers and very nice and friendly staff. I went with friends two days running in the evening. The first day there were... More

Just popping by at lunch visiting the eXcel fair this was a great place to grab a fast snack and excellent cold beer. I would have wanted to try it in the evening but unfortunately it was pre-booked by a large group.

We stayed in a hotel close by to the Fox and before we travelled I viewed their website. It looked really lovely and we planned to have some drinks and to eat here. The reality was that this pub was full of (mainly) men who on the whole were work men and had obviously been drinking for some time because... More

Hello KateSmith47, We are very sorry that your experience with us was not as you expected. We wish to reassure you first and foremost, that indeed at 1.30pm the police was in our premises but for an investigation that was not related to our venue. When the warehouse bar gets busy, we do have other areas that remain quieter, such... More

Hello Optomynous, We are very sorry to hear that your experience in our pub has not been the best. On the night you visited our venue, we hosted a charity event which, amazingly, was incredibly successful, and blew away our forecast. We do apologize for the slower service and sold out items that resulted and hope that you will visit... More

I had lunch here as part of a work trip and I was OK. I had the Caesar Salad with chicken and while the chicken was pretty good, the salad was drenched in dressing. The staff were friendly enough and the prices were reasonable.

Hello JetSetterJim, Thank you for your review! The chicken breast of the Caesar salad is chargrilled, for more delicious flavours! When it comes to the sauce, we are happy to serve it on the side so that you can use as much as you would like. If you let your waiter know he or she will pass on the information... More

Step away from the show! The sprawling expanses of the Excel Exhibition centre can all become too much. Fox is great for those keen for a break. Suprisingly spacious, there should be somewhere to sit, but no guarantee (I've been in when it's heaving and that's not a pleasant experience). Burgers were decent but took a little longer than we'd... More

Hello Dughall, Thank you for your review!

Three of us called in for an early evening meal after visiting the Boat Show. The first thing we noticed is that they have taken 'atmospheric' to mean really dark, so dark in fact that we couldn't read the menu without resorting to our phone torches. First of all we ordered a bottle of red wine which turned up quite... 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.
