Moody staff member let the place down!

Came here a few times whilst attending an event at the Excel Centre - Only ate here once, I had the burger which was tasty enough... My real gripe here though was a rather snotty member of staff. There were only 2 of us, and one table spare in the outdoor seating area, which we grabbed as soon... read more

We stopped off here after attending a convention in the Excel centre to grab a quick drink and bite to eat. It was busy, but not crowded and our food was served very quickly. A great choice of drinks to cater to all tastes and a wide variety of foods on the menu. Would definitely visit again if in the... 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.

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

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 pricey... More
