Not to be confused with the Fantastic Mr Fox (a Roald Dahl story about a wily fox who outwits his murderous farmer neighbours to steal their food), this is actually a cocktail bar. Above One Leicester Street (the hotel that replaced the St John Hotel went it ran into money troubles – though many of the staff are the same), it’s run by Matt Whiley (Whiley Fox – geddit?), the man behind excellent cocktail bars such as Purl, and a gifted creator of theatrical drinks. Intended originally as a pop-up, it has ‘by popular demand’, gone permament.
