Good place for a break from the exhibitions

This place is ideally located if you are attending an event at the Excel Centre. It's only a few metres from the entrance and gets you away from the bustle of the trade shows. The food is fine and the prices are OK. The service is very polite and helpful, but could be a bit quicker at the bar... read more

It's a huge pub but the food quality really isn't up to much. My wife had a baked spud with cheese and beans. The spud was watery and not very warm. The beans were not warm either. If they can't get simple stuff like that right!

I didn't even know the Fox existed until a work friend pointed it out after an event at Excel. Inside it was a very warm and welcoming place. The drinks were reasonably priced given the location and the food was of a very good standard. Next time I am at Excel I'll probably go back. I had to leave for... More

If you spend as much time at Excel as I have over the years, you will always include at least one visit to the Fox. They serve good 'pub' food, the places is always packed and has a great atmosphere.

I Loved this Place!!!! I am a BIG Starbucks Fan, and have been since the late '90's. I Loved the big windows of this place, and the view of the DLR Custom House Station. The Personable Baristas were most pleasurable to greet every morning. Or anytime I visited this location. This location was so open and airy and cozy with... More

We booked a table in the restaurant on the first night of the boat show, it was fairly busy which shouldn't have been a surprise to them but the restaurant was in total disarray, there were plenty of staff but no organisation whatsoever, staff wandering around with plates of food asking customers who ordered what, the evening was saved by...

Group of 15 of us arranged to meet at The Fox, & eat there. Great place to meet up, good range of beers & drinks. Plenty of tables and room to sit. Had a table in the separate restaurant, which was ideal for a large group. Food was great, and big portions too. Service was quick, and hostess polite. If... More

After struggling to find a descent place to eat we went to this pub by the excel centre, we ate there for 2 nights and the food was served promptly, hot and of good quality, definitely somewhere to eat if visiting the Excel.

We stopped here for a quick drink at lunchtime and ended up having a meal. Yes, it's all fast food type meals but the service and the food quality was good.
