We were staying at the Ibis near the Excel Centre. The Fox is very near, next to the taxi rank. The food was good pub food though not particularly big portions. The beer was good particularly the Caledonian and the service fine. It's just a pub and I would recommend it to anyone staying here. We tried the nearby Bollywood... More

Hello from Fox@ExCel, We are ideally located next door to the ExCel centre, the cable car and the Crystal building and local hotels. We are also a short trip from the O2. Our location means that we aare at the epicentre of the up and coming Docklands area. We are glad that you enjoyed our food, normally our portion sizes... More

I was delighted when a Starbucks opened near me, so far have had a very poor customer experience there. 1st Visit server advised that they could not top up my reward card as due to technical difficulties and so I had to pay in cash, (decided to go to another shop for my coffee). 2nd visit queue was small but...

We were staying on the Sunborne Yacht and decided to go to the Fox for a drink. It is huge but there were only about 10 people in there and no one waiting at the bar. The girl behind the bar did not even look up from what she was doing or say hello. After a few minutes a man... More

Visited here when staying on the yacht as it was too expensive to eat on it.We had excellent fish and chips and the burgers looked very good.The setting is ideal for eating outside on a nice evening. The food is all well priced for London and so is the beer well worth a visit.

Stayed at Novotel hotel for four nights, but needed somewhere more economical for food of an evening, so came here to the Fox Pub. Some nights the menu is very limited if an event is on at the excel, but the fish and chips or nachos sharing platter (for one!) is very tasty and value for money. Can be a... More

Within historic converted warehouses or grain stores this is a modern pub, quite extensive with outdoor seating. A bit dark first thing but we had a nice breakfast with eggs toast and coffee. Cheaper than the hotel combined with a walk. A pleasant to sit outside and see the hustle and bustle of Victoria Docks and Excel.

Called in to this bar and restaurant after a long day in London and I wish I just walked by. I was served by a member of bar staff called Joseph who was very rude and abrupt. My food was burnt and tasteless, was going about contact the management about it but thought if they allow their staff to give... More
