Squaremeal Review of The Fox Dining Room ?

One of the best pubs in the City, The Fox makes up for its lack of good looks with welcoming staff, a buzzy vibe, top drinks and cracking grub. Decent beers on tap include Sharp’s Doom Bar from Cornwall, and the cooking is textbook gastropub: starters of spiced chicken livers with green wheat and yoghurt or grilled sardines with sauce vierge could precede grilled lamb chops with red onion, cucumber, feta and mint or salmon and smoked haddock fishcakes with herb salad and hollandaise. Daily specials and tapas plates also get snapped up by eager, peckish punters. The genteel dining room upstairs is the place to go for a calmer meal, perhaps matched with one of the serious clarets from the wine list. Alternatively, a tenner on Tuesday nights gets you a bacon cheeseburger, thick-cut fries and a bottle of Sol beer.

Great pub where the staff looked after us like old friends! The Fox offers well looked after beers, a decent selection of wine and some tasty home cooked food which kept us in well into the night. Don't come here expecting loud hellish music and shouty, pointy people, the atmospheres solely bustling conversation both over the bar and amongst the other tables. After a couple of drinks we headed upstairs to a beautiful Victorian restaurant which was quieter than downstairs and offers table service....

Never had such bad service in my life. Having booked this place beacuse of their varied menu (we had a few food allergies, veggies etc) we had a set menu of 3 choices starter, 3 choices main shoved in front of us and were told there was usually a full menu, but because of the private party downstairs the kitchen couldn't do that for us. After waiting 2 hours for our cold starters to arrive, (we were the only people in the dining room) we had the manager come in with the plates and say, “yeah,...

We ate at the Fox one evening after our office summer outing, and were in the private room on the first floor. The room was simple but cosy. The food was excellent and reasonable, and the service was excellent, the staff could not do enough for us. Would recommend this for an informal event.
