Pub/bar situated in a converted warehouse building between Custom House Station and the ExCeL Centre.

It's spread over a couple of floors; the top floor has large picture windows (though the view is not exciting) and a fairly hideous carpet. Sturdy chairs and tables; some banquettes photo.

Kake visited on a Thursday lunchtime around 1pm; no trouble finding a seat, though the place wasn't empty. Barman was friendly enough. No real ale. Strongbow was £3/pint. Background music was inoffensive if unmemorable, and not too loud. Overall impression was that it wasn't as bad as you might expect from a chain pub attached to a conference centre.

Getting here: Exit Custom House Station via any of the walkways; they all funnel into one raised walkway which leads to the ExCeL Centre. There's a door leading in to the top floor of the Fox on the right hand side of this walkway. Note that the photo on this page is of the street-level access seen from the south; this photo shows the view from the Custom House walkway and the location of the top-floor entrance (the glass bit).
