London’s Calling! New Pub Opens In Viaduct

Opening its doors on Friday 3rd December, The Fox will be known for its British cocktail creations, hearty gastro grub and its Royal-esque interiors. Reimagining one of Auckland’s most well-known sports bars (the site was previously Foxes), the convivial public house has a new look, repertoire and inner-city edge reminiscent of the English capital. 

British bangers, Anglocentric ales, gin trees and drinks inspired by iconic UK flavours are sure to provoke a sense of nostalgia for expats while showing locals how a pub should operate. Specially curated by the venue’s resident mixologist, Joey Hickman, the best-of-British cocktail menu comprises a killer line up of seven delicious tipples. Jaffa Cake fans can opt for a Jaffa Martini, combining an espresso hit with Jaffa Cake gin – resembling the moreish chocolate layered biscuit. 

For something savoury and flavoury – opt for the Hair of the Fox. A British take on a Bloody Mary with  bacon fat washed bourbon, Marmite, Heinz Brown Sauce and tomato juice, topped with a full English breakfast. There are many exciting beverages on the menu and is definitely worth a visit. 

Although the drinks list is a highlight, the food is just as competitive for the spotlight. It will be all eyes on the pies at The Fox with a menu dedicated to the popular London staple. Tempt yourself with a classic steak and kidney or hearty Angus beef and cheese, hook into a fantastically good fisherman’s or try the chicken with truffle. 

With nine state-of-the-art screens, sport is still part of the DNA. Fans can expect all the big games with a legendary atmosphere to rival the real thing. 

Quirky Brit-inspired décor pays homage to the motherland. Rub shoulders with Queen Lizzie or host a private function in the 60-person capacity Churchill Room dedicated to Britain’s greatest stogie-toking leader.
