This was my local whilst staying in Brisbane. Great food, great atmosphere and has James Squire Cider on tap! Very modern and has multiple floors too. Loved it!

“All you can eat Mussels”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

I went to The Fox Hotel on Thursday night and got the all-you-can-eat mussels. Best decision ever. If you like mussels, and plenty of them, then you should definitely pay The Fox a visit.
$25 for all you can eat once you buy a drink, and served with some awesome chippies, I will definitely be back. The venue is also great - great atmosphere and very accessible via public transport. Thanks!

“Great Place for a drink or 10”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Spent a few hours in a group of 6 on Saturday arvo with options of cocktails, beers & some nice wine.

Red wine by the glass could be expanded to include more quality Oz offerings.

“Ok bar food”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

I haven't been to the fox before. The pub is ok and the bar menu is the usual, burger, fish & chips, etc. there is a lot of competition in Brisbane and I wouldn't rush back. It was just ok.

“American style wannabe menu”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

I hadn't been to the fox in over 18 months & it was good pub grub last time so we thought go for Sunday lunch.

The menu had really changed since I'd last been, it's been americanised with their bar food. We ordered a burger which we had to ask for it to be fully cooked through as they serve it pink (as stated on the menu) which they were happy to do. And we also ordered the chicken wings. The burger was ok but the bread roll was sweet - just like the American style ones you get. It was cooked through but the taste was nothing to rave about. The chicken wings were sticky with the bottom of the dish they came in covered in chilli and it was pretty hot, so hot I couldn't actually taste the chicken and I gave up trying to eat them.

The service was fine but the round booth tables are terrible to sit at - the table is too wide & makes it hard to even attempt to move around to allow others to join you, plus two of the tables we tried to sit at we're loose and wobbled so we gave them a miss. The building is beautiful and the inside is decorated really well.

Overall pretty disappointing menu & pretty lack lustre if your not into American bar food. We won't be going back until they change it to more Aussie styled pub grub. Still a good place for a drink though.
