THE FOX AND GRAPES: COUNTRY CHARM IN SW19
The Fox and Grapes in Wimbledon has become one of South West London’s favourite food and drink destinations
With its oak beams and cosy nooks the Fox and Grapes in Wimbledon has all the charm of a country village pub with the added convenience of being in South West London
Prettily nestled on the edge of Wimbledon Common, the Fox and Grapes was built in 1787 and later extended into the stables next door. The pub was re-opened under new management in February 2011 after a thorough refurbishment and has since become one of Wimbledon’s best loved dining destinations.
Great care goes into the food and wine that they serve, earning the team a Catey Menu of the Year award. They have also earned a Bib Gourmand too. You can find the Fox and Grapes listed in Harden’s, Zagat’s, the Michelin Guide, the Time Out Eating & Drinking Guide and the Good Pub Guide amongst others.
In the kitchen you’ll find the talented and highly skilled young Head Chef Andrew Jones who joined the Fox and Grapes in 2013, and is taking the pub to the next level. He has developed a hearty, simple yet elegant style of cooking that has won his team and the pub high praise. Andrew’s signature style, which he describes as ‘fine cooking, not fine dining’, is based on cooking great quality produce simply and sympathetically to a consistently excellent standard.
