FOX & FINCH

Welcome to the Fox and Finch, another micropub, not that we're complaining! This new venture will be opening in summer 2019 and can be found on the Littlehampton Road at the Thomas A Becket shops.

 
EARLY DAYS - NO SET OPENING DATE AS YET

Both Mike and Jo were keen to stay local to their home and Thomas A Becket proved to be an ideal location - while being far enough away from other micropubs to draw local interest. The Thomas  A Becket Pub and the Fox and Finch are within waving distance from each other, but the clientele will be markedly different, favouring those that prefer to chat without the background distraction of music and the trappings of commercial public houses, but its more complimentary than rivalry.

While there is currently no set theme to the pub, it will initially reflect the owner’s identities which promises to be a little eclectic.

 

   
   
   

Our thanks to the couple for allowing us to capture these bare bones shots of work in progress. It has a spacious feel with the bar tucked away in the back corner and the cold room directly behind. Real Ale is of course the centre piece and a wide variety of local brewed beers are planed, along with cider and wine. Bar snacks are on the menu and dogs very welcome. The toilet will be unisex and disabled friendly.

Neither are new to the trade, Mike comes from the Georgi Fin and Jo from Brooksteed.

The Fox part of the name comes from Jo’s home in Huddersfield, known as the Fox Holes, and the Finch derives from Mike’s interest in finches which he also shares with Jo.
