Fab Atmosphere, Slow Service

My friends and I were attending a convention at the Excel Centre over the bank holiday weekend, so I completely understand that the slow bar service was due to the sheer amount of people. I'd say they should have put more staff on, but there were already 6 people behind each bar! We visited twice... read more

Liked sitting on one of the leather couches in back drinking a pint. Food was ok, nothing spectacular, but the atmosphere was relaxing. Worth visiting if you're in the area.

I had to organise an event in The fox as my team were attending an Exhibition in the Excel. We all ate here and enjoyed the meals immensely from the starter platters to the steaks and the all day breakfast. I would recommend this bar from the nice outside sun trap area down to the spacious bar areas over three... More

Couldn't find a better place to sit down and have a coffee. Comfortable and nice warm atmosphere. Food is allright ;) Good selection of beers! A proper pub

I am probably being kind giving this place three stars. A year ago it was due four. The menu has been truncated. As have the portions. And seemingly the flavours too. It's now only somewhere to eat if you have no choice.

Good food, but very average service. Appeared to be understaffed when we visited. Excellent pint - beer well kept.

We are a US-based company traveling to London for a conference held at Excel center. We wanted to host a small customer event after the conference. Organizing was easy and everything was setup as we had discussed when we arrived. Pre-ordered food was perfect. Our event was a success.

I am posting this here seeing as my comments were removed from their Facebook site. Not only do they offer awful service, but cannot face up to and apologise for the disappointing experience they provided us with.
