“Burlington's Best Kept Secret”
Review of Slye Fox

Slye Fox
Ranked #134 of 482 Restaurants in Burlington
Price range: US$4 - US$20
Cuisines: Pub
Description: You may find this hard to believe but: The history of the Slye Fox Public House can be traced back to 1859 and a hamlet in the south of England. Charles Brae had initially led the weekly Fox Hunt across numerous neighbouring fields and although accompanied by over a hundred experienced foxhounds and twenty five equally able huntsmen, the Greyshire Fox had outwitted them for the fourth time in as many weeks. The hunt had always culminated outside a coaching house called the Fox Public House, with the little grey fox vanishing without a trace. Years earlier, the pubs head cook and bottle washer had secretly raised the orphaned cub in the cellar below the fine old coaching house. Once the little grey fellow had grownup he explored the countryside by way of a hole in the ancient coach house walls.

My husband and I are new to burlington and were looking for a place with good food and live music. We went to several well known pubs in burlington and oakville, and came upon the Slye Fox on new street. We had a wonderful meal and the band playing, was great. People were dancing. Everyone was having a good time. We liked it so much that we celebrated New Years there. Another great meal, calamari appetizer and the fish special. The wine was flowing (beer puts me to sleep) excellent band and service. Free midnight champagne, party hats and favors. The crowd was great ... mixed, but mostly 35+ We can't wait to go back again...what a gem
