All In London Review

The Fox Craft Beer House

Review Image
To the untrained eye it might seem like The Fox on Kingsland Road is resigned to existing in a state of flux that sees it forever shedding owners and growing into new refurbishments like it’s cool or something. While it does seem that it likes starting afresh a little too much, this time – dare we say it – they might just have it.

Located on that awkward stretch of Kingsland Road that’s too far from Shoreditch but not quite close enough to Dalston, The Fox is finally making itself visible to passers by. Not much has changed with the interior. The vast space can’t be closed in and might always feel too big for the numbers who seem to frequent it, but it feels like the sprawling nature of the pub is being embraced – finally.

The next noticeable change is behind the bar where the range of beers has exploded. Bottles of artisan Belgian brew back up the draught selections that include Sierra Nevada and Maredsous and although pints creep up towards the £5.00 mark, that represents good value for what you’re drinking.

Next came the new menu, which includes a good range of bar snacks – think pork belly and triple cooked chips – plus roasts on Sundays.

The Fox will never represent the light bulb moment when you’re thinking of where to head for a slap up gastro dinner but the new Craft beer bar status it has achieved adds immeasurably to the pleasurable experience it has always strived to consolidate – and finally has.

Drinkies, a great view... what else you could possibly need?

Having undergone yet another refurbishment (will this new Fox last?) the new residents at the Fox have wisely smartened up the terrace at the top of this Kingsland Road pile. Escape the urban environment below and sip craft beer as you peer down on the mean streets.

This pub has been well and truly turned around. It seems all it took was the addition of a massive range of craft beers on the taps.

Also, the roof terrace is a great space for those long summer evenings.
