“Excellent Atmosphere with Plenty of Choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Becoming a regular at The fox now. Has some really good choice of Beers, Largers and Ciders from all around the world. Good thing about them is they change regularly so can expect different ones on the next time you was to go in. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and they now do food as well. Defo worth a visit if you have not already been.

“its a pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

What else matters good quality well kept beers, friendly welcoming staff, and clean, must admit we didn't eat anything other than crisps but we will happily return both for the beer any hopefully when food is available. Nice atmosphere sort of a cross between a pub and cafe/bar a great addition to Shipley bar scene.

“The Fox Rocks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Have been to the Fox 4 times in the last month, and its a very welcome addition to shipleys finest. This is a no nonsense boozer, if you want great beers, well kept and presented as they should be this is the badger to head for. Proper beer presented with care in a really nice cafe bar ambience. As 'thackley corner' alluded to, a bit like the sparrow in bradford. The only point off 5 is because they don't do much food, but that could also be a positive because as a pure pub this would be a 5star. In short, go there because it's rather good!

“The Fox has it Cornered”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Visited the Fox at lunchtime with a group of ale enthusiasts in it's first week of business after noticing it in passing. Good range of quality Cask ales on offer, mainly from the Salamander brewery. Barstaff were cheery and helpful. We enquired about food and was given the option of lasagne or some sandwiches, there wasn't a menu, we weren't sure if this was down to the place being so new but we liked the informaility of it. We chose some sandwiches and they were suitably wholesome and rustic. The interior is understated and tasteful, we liked the historical pictures of the surrounding area known as Fox Corner to locals. The place has the feel of a european cafe bar (think The Sparrow, Bradford) it has an intimacy lacking in your average chain pubs.Overall a very good experience, hopefully bringing some regeneration into an area that badly needs it and if other businesses follow the lead and make it a hip and happening area this could become an excellent place to visit in future.
