A CAMRA-approved pub serving a fine range of ales and contemporary pub food, including Sunday roasts. It's close to Canonbury station, too.

The food menu focuses on updates of British classics, so expect dishes such as rotisserie-cooked chicken alongside a weekly selection of home smoked meats, including cured English pork belly, racks of barbecue baby back ribs, slow-cooked brisket and smoked wild boar and apple sausages. 

The CAMRA approval ensures there's a good range of real ales and craft beers regularly on tap, complemented by whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Japan and the USA, and a short wine list with ten available by the glass.

A great pub with fantastic selection of beers, ales and ciders. With a great menu and wonderfully unique decor this pub is one of my absolute favourites.

The Snooty Fox is the best local I've ever had. Great beer, great food and great music. The staff are super friendly and there is a warmth and charm about this place that you don't see in pubs in London. Their ale festivals are really good fun too.

This is a really great pub! The Snooty Fox offers a very good selection of beers, which are always changing.

The pub atmosphere is relax with good music on. The staff were friendly and professional and very helpful at all time.
We went there for the first time on a Sunday and were delighted by the quality of the meat and the big portions of roasts. The whole room was full of people and the service was excellent. One of the best and most enjoyable Sunday roasts we had in London.

Nice pub - shame about the service.

The decor is cool but the toilets are on the shabby side of chic. Part of a large group for a birthday party- we enjoyed reasonably priced drinks and I had the "snooty burger" which was really tasty. Unfortunately, after the bar man made a mistake (human error, it happens), he got a bit stroppy and the quality of service declined sharply. Understaffing was his excuse, which I can only sympathise with, but his response (and that of a colleague- maybe management?) to criticism was dismissive and quite frankly insulting. Despite enjoying my evening as a whole, I will not be going back.
