This pub was great. We ate here. Food excellent . Would go back if I could. In a nice position. During summer or winter lots of space inside for winter. Lovely people and staff very good.

Ideally situated outside the huge Excel centre the Fox gets points for offering drinks cheaper than inside that sprawling convention venue. Of course it's still eye wateringly expensive but is a good place to catch up with friends. Low on atmosphere there's a real sense that the Fox is just there for the transient Excel crowd rather than trying to... More

Handily situated for visitors to Excel - but would you bother? Real ale was off. When will it be on? Shrug of shoulders. Do the bar staff want to be there? Looks unlikely. Good spot for sitting outside in the sun, but only if they put the staff on training courses.

Right by the London Excel building with a lovely outside seating area, good food choices but the service inside was slow.

It may be close, but the choice of drinks is poor. A beer and a couple of lagers. The worse thing though is the bar service. Yes, it was busy, but the staff did everything at super-slo mo. 25 minutes to get served, but gave up when went for round two and got the same lackadaisical service.

Over priced bland food, ribs had not flavour and onion rings must have been from Iceland!!! Kinds menu was lacking. Staff were not very helpful and felt like a scrum to get to the bar. Think I'll just have a drink and leave it there next time .

My daughter and I were staying at the Sunborn Yacht Hotel over the road so decided to eat here. The food was delicious, we both had burgers and thoroughly enjoyed them. After eating we had a few drinks whilst sitting on the comfy couches listening to the fabulous music. I would definitely return when staying in the area.
