Wolf and Fox

Timeless tales and fables are moving to modern times.  Their distinct characteristics have imprints in the minds of a child whether fantasy or reality. As they transcend through the passage of their youth, the fondness of memory remains and brings life into various forms in the now. Last July 9, 2014, Wolf and Fox euro Gastropub has sprung right in the heart of Bonifacio Global city in Taguig.  Old world meets new in a refined setting that presents a distinct fascination for fables and literature. The plush interiors reflect a strong British influence from the art, furnitures and design pieces.  The mood inspired lit atmosphere creates a resemblance of London's nightlife thus making this must-go place a member of the British Chamber of Commerce of the Phil(BCCP). What makes this pub a standout among the rest( aside from the endless list of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages) are two menus(Wolf and Fox) that offer a sumptuous gastronomic feast.  The Wolf menu present the traditional cuisine for the sophisticated taste(heavy on meat).  On the other hand, the Fox menu premiums on farm to table(organic/ greens/ salad/ sausages) offerings.  Either way, both showcase a variety of the best of the English foodie palette. One shouldn't miss their addicting desserts that leaves quite an unforgettable impression.  With more than a list of places in the city, Wolf & Fox is a cool and quiet atmosphere to dine and have a drink without the maddening crowd. Great food and ambience worthy to be a habitué for those who love to drink and dine the English way.
