New Rooftop Pub to Open Thursday
The Red Fox English Pub, atop Cantina Diablo's in downtown Royal Oak, specializes in cuisine, beer and sports from 'across the pond.'
Filing a niche unlike anything else in the area, the Red Fox English Pub is scheduled to open Thursday in downtown Royal Oak.
The elevated space will resemble an English pub, quite different from the Tex-Mex atmosphere below at Cantina Diabalo's. It will feature a large outdoor patio, seating about 66 people, and broadcast soccer and rugby games from the European soccer package for rabid "football" fans.
The Red Fox English Pub will feature:
- 40 European and local Michigan beers – and you don't have to be a beer snob to enjoy them.
- Live soccer and rugby matches on large flat-screen TVs placed throughout the bar.
- A full stand-alone kitchen specializing in English favorites including Shepherd's Pie, fish 'n' chips, salmon in potato and more. The restaurant also has an ample "snack menu" to nosh on while enjoying a brew.
