Fox & Anchor


The Fox & Anchor is a traditional British pub, located within strolling distance of Barbican and Farringdon in the heart of Smithfield. Step through the door and you'll immediately notice our homely and embracing atmosphere. With a grand decor and a delightfully cosy private 'Fox's Den' comprising of booths perfect for lunch and dinner, everything about the venue is steeped in tradition; nothing flash, just a slick and comfortable place to grab a drink and let the good times roll.

Peckish? Well you're in the right place, as the Fox & Anchor serves up hearty portions of pub classics comprising of fresh and colourful British seasonal ingredients.

The Fox & Anchor concept is one that strikes a chord with a truly eclectic mix of Londoners - it is, after all, the venue's aim to see "city traders rubbing shoulders with Bob the Butcher." An all-rounder perfect to swing by no matter what time of day.
