Fox Fine Wines & Spirits opened in late summer 2015 in the City of London. A wine bar incorporating a wine shop and full service kitchen over 3 floors in the iconic, listed Fox building on London Wall. On offer are a carefully curated selection of over 300 wines and champagnes as well as signature cocktails, premium spirits and a complementary English influenced food menu.
WE’RE ALL ABOUT WINE
The ethos of Fox aims to match the classic surroundings of the beautiful building and distinct rooms with a wide variety of wines and dedicated approachable service. We believe that drinking great wine shouldn’t cost the earth, and thus have a very fair pricing structure with reasonable markups that encourage trying new and unique wines. The wine walls act as our de facto wine lists, with a unique selection on display on each floor. Our qualified staff is on hand to assist with selection and offer recommendations.
FOOD TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN OUR WINE
The food menu complements the wine list but has a particularly English focus. It includes platters and small plates designed to share that feature favourites such as home-made scotch eggs, sausage rolls & pork pies. A broad selection of charcuterie and premium cheeses (sourced from Norbiton Fine Cheeses of Wimbledon) are available everyday. Our full kitchen allows us to facilitate regular wine dinners, hosted by producers from across the globe.
AND IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DRINK WINE
Although we are all about the wine, we do have a wide selection of spirits available to enjoy here and to take away. This includes our own FOX gin that is hand blended and locally distilled for us by the Talented Mr. Fox himself, Matt Whiley. Matt uses black Muscat grapes in the botanicals to create a unique flavour profile that tastes great in both a martini and with a mixer. In addition, we offer a small selection of classic bottle-aged cocktails, including the Old Fashioned & Negroni.
STAYING TRUE TO A CLASSIC
Originally a shop that hand made and sold umbrellas to everyone from British royalty to JFK, the building has a Grade II listed interior and façade. This includes the only neon sign in the whole of the Square Mile. Widely known to Londoners simply as The Fox Building, the rooms has been carefully and sensitively repurposed to offer three unique experiences. On the ground floor, a bustling shop and bar spills out into the pedestrian area outside where table service is available. On the first floor, our dining room offers a relaxed eating and drinking experience, whilst enjoying the view through floor-to-ceiling windows over the green outside. On top floor is our lounge; with leather armchairs, feature fireplaces, and private spaces, it creates convivial atmosphere.
