Pub curry is identical to that in hundreds of pubs - nothing like a genuine curry but a bit like a pot noodle it's something you can get a craving for. Steak and chips is another meal I've had here and that's also fine but not great. He steak was good but the fries were stone cold. Beer is... read more

Used to be a decent pub. Away on business, pop your card behind the bar, have a few beers, some cheap pub food and pay up at the end. No more, pay as you go. Pain in the backside. Drop in for a beer and little else.

Based on my experience with a party of colleagues who ate at the Fox@ExCeL on 15/6, the more positive recent reviews must have either been written by friends of the venue or else after a much better night than when we visited. My group was there after a long day of preparing an event at ExCeL (surely not unknown for... More

Went to the Security Exhibition at Excel today and visited this Pub on the way out for a bite to eat. Can honestly say it was a pleasure. The food was tasty and well presented and reasonably priced for London. The beer and wine selection was Excelent, excuse the pun !!! The staff were also attentive to all our needs... More

I'm struggling with this as I habitually post positive reviews : my conscience says put it out there so that others won't have the same , miserable experience . That doesn't mean don't go, but go in the hope that management actually do something to address the obvious issues. I was hosting 20 Guests at one sitting - that's not... More

Admittedly we were in a large group eating our before an exhibition at the Excel, but you would have thought they would be used to this? Despite having pre-ordered the service was appallingly slow with one person serving the 20 of us. Starters took over half an hour and drinks were very slow too. They ran out of Guinness and... More

This must rank as one of the worst meals ever poor food, lousy service and surly untrained staff. We had booked and pre ordered our food and it was rubbish! Avoid at all cost

I only had supper in here but it was very good, I had a stilton burger which was lovely and fresh and very tasty and very reasonably priced. The wine selection was good and when I asked how long the wine had been opened for the lady said she would open a new bottle if I would prefer - which... More

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 on the Friday and Saturday... More
