The Fox is one of two taverns in Vizima. It enjoys the less favourable reputation of the two. It is here that Geralt first draws attention to himself by killing some racists who are harassing him at the beginning of the short story "The Witcher". Velerad later accused Geralt of going to this tavern in order to start a fight and thus be brought before him.
He pulled his horse further down the street to another tavern, a smaller one, called the Fox. Not enjoying the best of reputations, it was almost empty.
