I’ll keep this pretty simple. I love the Fox.
The Fox is another of my local pubs and it is my favourite haunt for a Sunday afternoon drink. The Fox is pretty unparalleled when you are perched on the rooftop beer garden and the weather is lovely. Look at that view back to the city!
While most of my time at the Fox is spent in said beer garden, making my way through a cheeky bottle of rose, I also enjoy a pub meal there too. The Fox has an extensive menu that spans the standard pub favourites (parma ($18), burger ($16), fish and chips ($18)) and veers into more interesting choices (morton bay bug pie ($19), duck risotto ($19), pork belly ($23) or kangaroo fillet ($20)). It also has a very impressive vegetarian menu (think eggplant and zucchini stack ($17), marinated tofu steak ($17) or vegetarian moussaka ($17)) and is gluten-free friendly (the menu denotes which items are GF or can be prepared GF). So it’s perfect for your dietary challenged friends (yes that includes me).
I usually go down the more traditional pub route when I order and I’m yet to be disappointed. Here is a selection of what we had the last time we visited – Smokey beef burger and a parma that really is big enough for two (just order extra chips!):
Chicken burrito, $17 & an old favourite, the Foxy fish plate, $25 (this is mine and it’s GF – the fish is battered in polenta):
So there you have it! Good pub food that is well prepared and great value. With a cracking beer garden. I’ll be there soon.
