Foxlow is a lovely restaurant with friendly caring staff who made sure your every desire was catered for. The food was excellent and well presented and, of course, hot. I would recommend Foxlow to my friends and neighbours.

Went for a brunch date with a friend, ended up staying for 4 hours as lost track of time! Staff were very welcoming and friendly, service was efficient, food was delicious! We had two roasts of very good quality produce and cooking skills and two delightful desserts. We were very looked after and didn’t feel rushed or pressured to leave at any point which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend Foxlow and I look forward to returning again!

Top Marks as always, Food is great quality, very well priced and delivered by really friendly, kind and thoughtful front of house that are a credit to all involved. Had breakfast on this visit which was super tasty, the only shame is the 5 Points pale on tap has gone in favour of a new IPA, hardly a biggie though.
Thanks team!

What a fantastic place for Brunch! Great service from start to finish. The atmosphere is perfect for a Sunday morning and the Scandinavian Modern vibe is very comfortable and relaxing. Food was brilliant, tasty and the portion size was perfect! Loved every bite and the coffee was spot on! Already looking forward to going again and trying their roast dinners! Thank you!

Nice restaurant, excellent service. Although there was quite a noisy geouo in our area which was a little annoying and there was also a dog in the waiting area which was a little odd as it didn’t seem very comfortable being there and barked a bit.

Had the rib eye steaks which were very good, but a bit pricey considering they only give that on the plate with the side you choose. Personally think it should come with some healthy greens as well, or something salad-like as part of the meal without having to choose between salad or fries. It’s the second time I’ve been and I’d go again, but will probably stick to the non steak mains as they are better value. Food quality is good though.

Lovely venue, average mains. Amazing rhubarb brioche pudding though. We went for the bottomless Prosecco brunch but on reflection it would have been more cost effective to order by the glass or bottle

This was my first visit to Foxlow and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff are so attentive, the tasty menu caters to all. I had planned what I will be having on my next trip by the time I left.
Perfect for groups, lone diners and couples. Tad too noisy (Saturday lunchtime) but great buzz about the place.

We asked for a table with space around it for a pram, we added people to our booking, nothing was too much trouble. everything we asked for correct, and we had service with a smile..... which you have to agree is unusual in London these days.
We wouldn't hesitate to go back, or to recommend to others. Well done Foxlow.

Good local restaurant. A nice crowd and not too tightly packed. the menu changed recently - I think that lunch was eliminated, and I'm a bit sad about this, but if that works for everyone else then good for them.

Amazing food, service and wine just a shame the fries couldn’t be coeliac friendly as a steak isn’t the same without chips. The steak and the broccoli though were tremendous.

Overall the atmosphere was great and the food was amazing (my dad said it was the best beef he had ever tasted and he is a very tough critic!) The only down point would be that it was very loud but this is expected on a sunday afternoon!

Food plates very small for the price. Glasses were often empty during a bottomless brunch and had to ask to be re-filled every time, probably because we didn't seem to have been allocated just one waiter. But food was tasty and the venue itself nice.

We booked a table for 6 for sunday brunch and were not disappointed. The service was great and there was no fuss made when we asked to be switched onto the bottomless bloody mary's half way through our meal. Great atmosphere and food, will come again soon.

From arrival the staff were helpful and hospitable. The food was great we all had brunch and the beans on the all day breakfast were amazing and that's saying a lot from me as I don't usually like beans that come with a full English.
