There was nothing dreadfully wrong with it, but there wasn't much ambiance and the food was average and overpriced.

I went to the Fox very recently for a Christmas party, we hired out the top floor for the night and had a sit down three course meal and I wasn't very impressed, but lets start with the positives: The pub itself is nice, the atmosphere was fine and I was happy with the drinks on offer. The staff were... More

Friday pub lunch? Why not the Fox? I’ll tell you shall I… Seated in Miss Havisham’s bedroom under the name ‘Yasmin’, our pre order of chicken curry, two beef burgers and mushroom pie arrived unpunctually in a beeping dumbwaiter. Cold curry is never nice especially when accompanied by bread you can snap in half and dry rice. The waitress kindly... More

Dear 'yashkitty1', We were surprised to read your review of our pub, given that you did in fact receive a free meal and drinks. However, since you have decided to 'review' our pub I will respond to your thinly veiled attempt at internet fame. Firstly I assume Yasmin is in apostrophes as this is not your name. May I suggest...

Ive eaten in The Fox previously, and was really disappointed at both the poor service and food at lunchtime today. We were told there was no beer on tap. The cider and lager that were served were off and we had to send them back. We waited over an hour for our main course, our steaks were not cooked as... More

Group of 6, lunchtime. Pre-booked. One of three tables occupied in the room over the bar. Left after 100 minutes having had the bill almost reduced by half. Pros: * The building has a degree of old world charm * The humous appeared to be home made Cons: * The 'pub' did not have any bitter on tap as it... More

Lovely Victorian pub with rustic tables and chairs. The atmosphere for midweek was lively with a mix of young and old and thankfully not just trendy hipsters but the usual local after-work crowd rather than tourists. The restaurant part is upstairs, much calmer with excellent quality gastro pub grub with everything looking and tasting home-made with love. Great friendly service... More

Been going to the Fox of a lunchtime for several years now, but having not been for a while I thought I would pop in with a couple of colleagues for a quick lunch. What’s gone wrong with this place? The staff were extremely lethargic and unhelpful to the extent of being downright rude. It wasn’t busy, but the service... More

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
