Still good, but

The owners need to stop the patrons from smoking in the door way, there is nothing so off putting when you are trying to eat and the smell of smoke is spoiling your meal.

We politely queried why they charged 80p for carbonated water with a vodka. The lady behind the counter obviously hasn't done a courtesy course! When asked why the cost she came to the table afterwards and slammed down a receipt, implying that we had questioned her integrity. Shame, but we won't be using this pub again.

Great service, and the food looks and smells wonderful. However when I decided to pay a visit it was Poker night, and they seemed to forget that other people were in the pub. Lighting fags in the pub to these guys was the norm. Then they all smoked outside the entrance of the pub, not great if you hate smoke.... More

Excellent place, very friendly and accomodating staff. Nice decor and a cool laid back atmosphere. Popular with locals and passers-by/tourists. Good selection of drink and grub and reasonably priced. The music varies between funk, soul, pop, hippity hippity hop, jazz and dance. Well worth popping in

I used to visit Foggs regularly and stopped going about a year ago, because the landlady was so unwelcoming. If you were her friends you were okay. The mens toilets always smelt of stale urine. The beer was overpriced £5.25 for a Kronenbourg what a rip off. Now the new owners are in and the atmosphere has really changed. The... More

Have been going to Foggs for a few pints for a couple of years now, but only just got round to having food there! Delicious Cajun Chicken burger - just the right level of spice and tastiness. The staff are really nice and friendly, and we always enjoy our evenings out.

Popped into Foggs with a few friends whilst passing through seven dials and ended up staying for the rest of the evening. We ordered a lot of cocktails! Great mojitos which the staff told us the had won a competition with, a few classics up there with some inventive new cocktails we had not heard of before, all very tasty.... More
