Will Beckett and Huw Gott opened the first Foxlow restaurant in Clerkenwell in 2013 with the aim of creating a great neighbourhood bar and restaurant. Foxlow’s offering is simple, revolving around a real charcoal grill and impeccable seasonal and local produce from the best of British farmers and fishermen. Warm, informal service and a comfortable, lived-in interior add to the relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
On St John Street, Foxlow is a 5-minute walk from Farringdon Tube Station, and 7 minutes’ walk from Barbican Tube Station.

I went for a business lunch with a colleague. I couldn’t give 5 stars to everything as that shouldn’t be possible but I’d like to. The whole experience was fantastic. Food is stellar.

Really tasty food, including great vegan options! The roast cauliflower with curry sauce was delicious. Pomegranate Margarita was amazing too. Nice atmosphere and service. :)

This location is always wonderful. The service is brilliant. The food is always delicious. This is our favourite place for Sunday roast and the passion fruit cheesecake is outstanding.

The food was excellent, but it was hard to get the attention of any staff. The bartender spilt a drink all over a brand new coat (an accident) but nothing was done as an apology or anything.

They didn’t have the waffle and chicken meal; which we were hoping to try. And the weekend menu is quite limited. Great customer service and great tasting food.

GREAT brunch. Bottomless filter coffee hit the spot. Loved the interior. The chicken and waffle was to die for and the avocado toast with eggs was also very yummy. Perfect for weekend brunch w friends.

I feel so lucky to have the Foxlow as my neighbourhood restaurant. I've never had a dud visit and have been for lunch and dinner. Not only do they cook their steaks to perfection but they also have delicious fish, chicken and vegan options too. The cocktail list is original and well thought out too.

Great lunch, friendly staff. Took a couple softer drinks of the bill as complementary as one of the people was pregnant and couldn’t join in in the bottomless brunch.
Would definitely go again, great value for money.

Food was excellent and Bloody Mary cocktails exceeded expectations! Service was friendly and not bad, although had to ask for a couple of things more than once (however this didn't impact negatively on the meal or overall experience).

There were 3 of us who all had different starters and mains. All thoroughly enjoyed the meals.
One of our party had visited Foxlow a few weeks ago when he was last in London and recommended it.
The staff were very pleasant and professional without being ‘in your face’
A good ambiance

Wasn’t a good experience at all and would not go back in a hurry. Very rude staff and very patronizing. I go out a lot to eat and network and this is something I have not come across in a long time. Pity really as it has a lot of potential

We were sat in the corner and the waiter seem to refuse to make eye contact so it was very hard to get their attention for things.

We went during Friday lunchtime and the service was slow, considering they know people have an hour for lunch.

I haven’t been since the menu has changed and it seems to have gone down the “chain” restaurant route where they’ve even called their burger Xinger. It used to be a bit more upscale with quite a nice menu. Although the fact that veggie/vegan foods have been added is positive, it seems that now there’s not really any nice meat dishes left except for standard steak (which was slightly over cooked). I wouldn’t go there to eat burgers, and it doesn’t really fit with the extensive cocktail and alcohol menu that’s there. So good for a drink but not for food any more.
