Please note, Fox is now closed. Time Out Editors, July 2018.
Occupying a sizeable corner spot between Shoreditch and Dalston (you’ve no doubt whizzed by on the bus before), The Fox is a very worthy pub (or, as they’d prefer it, a ‘craft beer house’) that’s much-beloved locally. Ten draught pumps and eight hand pumps serve a rotating selection of fine ales – regularly featured brewers include Dark Star from Sussex, Harviestoun from Scotland and Thornbridge from Bakewell. There’s usually a couple of ciders on, and a proper connoisseur’s depth to the bottle menu: everything from Hawaii’s Maui Brewing Mana Wheat (with tangy overtones of pineapple) to the Aussie stalwart Little Creatures Pale Ale’ (refreshing and satisfyingly bitter). The Fox isn’t cheap for the area, but midweek it’s usually easy to get a table, or a bench on the neat little roof terrace.

Just awful used to be such a nice pub with great food and atmosphere lifeless no atmosphere and boring very average overpriced food
My new favorite pub to go after work. It's changed a lot.. very cosy, there's lots of space to get a sit even on a Friday night, all candlelit..and amazing beers!
Great pub. Had a fantastic veggie Sunday roast here with a Yorkshire pudding as big as a saucer. The beer is a good selection, and the staff seemed friendly on all my visits there.
Until the new owners took over this venue had long been a complete waste. Now they have excellent beers, good food, and great bar staff. A welcome addition and a much needed improvement.
Probably the best burger i have ever had, along with an amazing selection beers! It's nice to go somewhere that isn't too cramped in this area and the smoking area/roof terrace is a dream. Would highly recommend this pub, really unpretentious, with really friendly staff.
Good beer is not enough anymore, there are craft beer bars opening up every week in east London and all this has going for it is the beer. Was here recently and service was woeful, friends got cocktails which took a good 15/20 mins to arrive, food was fairly bland, atmosphere non-existant, tables dirty etc etc. No desire to go back. MAYBE gets three stars just for the sake of getting a decent US ale on Kingsland Road but it'd be generous.
Perfect location on Kingland with the best selection of ales in the area. Not at all pretentious, just good quality food and drink accompanied by well chosen decor. Highly recommended.
