About

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.

Went to Foxlow before it closed. The experience was a little different to some years ago, but the quality of the food hadn't dropped. The devilled mushrooms made a great starter, the chicken waffle burger was needed to be eaten after seeing it going to another table, and the sunday roast was just right.

Go, go, go... this is Foxlow’s last week. Delicious steak, great wine, tasty starters, scrummy puddings... what’s not to like... especially when you add in charming staff!

Five of us had a lovely lunch today - fresh salad with meet cooked perfectly medium to rare; friendly and helpful waitress who was always on sight to help with enquires. A bit noisy as everyone in the room wished to make a point I suppose, overall a great experience. Thanks!

Had the burger deal, burger well done? Like many places erring on the side of caution, so food not up to the usual best and expensive for a burger and a beer. But this was our last time here, its closing at the end of June and we will be sad to see it go. Thanks to all the staff that have given us some great food, drink and memories.

Great restaurant and staff! I’m vegetarian and my boyfriend eats meat so perfect choice for our different dietary requirements. The restaurant also had a partnership with an organisation that funds breakfast for kids with struggling parents. A mere 30p is added to the bill. Fantastic idea!

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.

We always enjoy going back to this restaurant. Loving the fun atmosphere, it's always fun to see if your table brought more bottles of wine than the one next to yours :)

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.

I enjoyed a very good lunch at Foxlow. Very good food and very friendly and efficient service. Only slight let down was the sticky toffee pudding. Good toffee sauce but pudding not quite up to scratch.

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.
