SquareMeal Review of Fox & Pie

Edgar Allan Poe once studied in this building, but its current incarnation – a narrow nu-Victorian bar with a restrained sage colour-scheme – is far from Gothic. The name change (the pub was previously The Fox Reformed) reflects the new focus: quality, puff pastry-topped pies of Desperate Dan dimensions, made from scratch on-site, served with seasonal veg and priced at £9.50 or £12.50. Chicken, leek and gammon; beef and Guinness; and Stilton and mushroom are among the fillings. Order a pie with a tankard of Red Fox ale, one of a range of draughts that also includes Fuller’s Seafarers and beers from Camden Brewery. Otherwise, drink Provençal rosé or Portuguese Alentejo red by the glass, or snap up a bottle of big-bodied Monastrell Reserva (£24). For afters, devour rhubarb crumble, rich sponge slathered in Belgian chocolate, or spotted dick. The dog-friendly Fox’s compact rear garden will come into its own come summer.
