All New London Pub Opens on Auckland’s 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.
