“Quick drink after cinema”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

I like 'The Fox' as it's not overly crowded like the place across the road. They last few times we have dropped in for a drink after the cinema they have had a solo singer, or small band playing which has been great.

“Attempted to eat here - but no chef”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We attempted to eat at the Fox Ale House - but there was no chef so subsequently couldn't. This was a bit of a shame as we were wanting to try out some of their foods with some beer!

We saw a group of tourists the day before having a grand time drinking at the front of this place - so it must be worth a go.

“Need to update menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Great pub. Perfect for people watching. Friendly staff. Only negative while the food is fantastic would be nice to see a little more variety, how ever if you only eat there occasionally would be happy with anything you order

“Great for casual pub style meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

I eat at the Fox with a group of friends after hearing that the food was good. I had grilled barramundi and salad, nicely cooked, salad a bit sparse (comes with chips but I decided to leave this off my plate). My friends had pasta dishes, thai green curry, and calamari and all said was really nice. The portions are very large and my dinner only cost $20 - which is great value for money considering the price of eating out usually.
The atmosphere is like a Darwin Pub, decore a little it dated.
The service is friendly fast and overall excellent - and after wards you can even play a few games of pool and stay for a few beers/spirts and even on some nights live bands.
I would reccommend for a casual style pub meal.

“Good vibe in a relaxed atmosphere with nice pub grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Attended here twice in four days in mid November.

On the first occasion we stopped in out of the hot sun for a refreshing cider and decided to take a chance and grab a meal. We both had the prawn fettuccine which was nothing short of fantastic and certainly beyond the expectations of a $18 pub meal. My wife swears they were the best cooked prawns she's ever had!
