Welcome to the Fox & Anchor

Honoured on the edge of Smithfield Market, a 5 minute walk to Barbican and Farringdon tube stations, The Fox & Anchor is in the beating heart of London. Picture low beams, wooden paneling and candlelight, creating a magical escape from the city where you must take full advantage of our hearty seasonal menu – especially our famous Sunday roasts. Sit back and relax over a pint of Young’s whilst tucking into our famous City Boy Breakfast or renowned Market Cuts.

Don’t want to go home? Stay the night in one of our six boutique bedrooms above the pub, the perfect home-from-home on your business trip or weekend getaway.
