on arrival we were shown to a table downstairs which is very dim and not a lot of light, ordered our food at the bar, waited roughly 30 mins for food, it was pretty tasty, nothing to complain about, however when we were leaving we went out the top which is very light and airy, I would have much preferred...

Warehouse turned into pub/restaurant. We were staying at the Novotel the night before an early flight from City airport and needed to eat early and get to bed. We went to the Fox at teatime on a Friday. The bar area was large with less than half the tables occupied (I imagine it would be alot busier if there was... More

We stayed at the Sunborn and decided to have a bite to eat here in the evening (looked the best option of the restaurants around for us). The beer was a little limited if you're not a massive lager fan, but had the right Rose for Mrs C, so she was happy. We had a burger and club sandwich which... More

I was at the Excel recently for an event and used the Fox afterwards. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always making sure the party was enjoying there time and being seen to. It's ideal if your at the Excel and I would definitely recommend using this location for food and drinks after. Thanks a lot.

We held a company event after the annual ICE exhibition and it went very well at Fox. This is the second year in a row we have held our event here and I would recommend it for those in the area. The staff were great, the food was good and we had a great time.
