Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Fox @ Excel
A strange mixture. The more obvious part of this multi-level establishment is the modern extension housing a mid-sized bar with an entrance off the walkway between the ExCeL exhibition centre and Custom House DLR station. This connects down to a conversion of part of the former tobacco Warehouse K, housing a much larger bar and dining area. Two handpumps in each bar, offering Deuchars IPA (inevitably expensive, given its location, at £4.30) and Caledonian Flying Scotsman.

E TA left this review about Fox @ Excel
A warehouse conversion adjacent to the Excel Centre, The Fox has a large restaurant upstairs and an even larger bar on the ground floor. Attempts have been made to make it atmospheric: wooden floors, background music and exposed brickwork fail to disguise its original purpose. There is free wifi available. The staff are mostly non-native, the low quality food would not be out of place in a 1970s motorway cafe (pre-packaged reheated offerings of the worst kind), and the beer wasn't brilliant. There were 2 ales on. I had a pint of Caledonian Flying Scotsman which was not right. Very disappointing all round and unlikely to be repeated.
