Welcome to Fox and Anchor

Discover the traditional Fox & Anchor city pub and 4 star boutique hotel in the heart of Farringdon. A stone’s throw from the famous Smithfield Market and a two minute walk to the Barbican Centre; our Victorian pub is shrouded in history and is known as the home of the perfect Sunday roast in the City with market porters and bankers drinking side by side.

With five recently refurbished boutique hotel rooms, all with their own personality and topped only by our stunning Market Suite, the Fox & Anchor is great for that city getaway you’ve always dreamed of or as a place to relax in comfort if you are visiting on business. Our hotel is a hidden gem within Farringdon.

Our fine wine and cocktail bar next door, The Vestry, caters to our regulars that always want to be the first to try the next thing we decide to whip up along with people that have travelled to find our what we’re about. The Vestry remains the perfect place for afterwork drinks in Farringdon and the local favourite showing the Rugby Six Nations!

The Vestry is well known for being able to offer meeting space and is a perfect private hire venue for birthdays, corporate events, anniversaries and wedding parties.

Fantastic Boutique Hotel in EC 1 5*

We stayed at the Fox & Anchor. It´s a pub with six hotel rooms very next door to the pub. The rooms seems to be recently renovated which makes the standard high. Big rooms with big bathrooms (I saw three of the rooms) combined with a cosy pub makes the stay great! We had breakfast/brunch and it was really nice prepared.

***** Great pub, great food

The Fox and Anchor is a beautiful old pub, unspoiled, atmospheric and with cosy areas to dine. The staff are welcoming and the food is excellent. There are vegetarian choices on the menu. A gem indeed and the Barbican underground station is close by.

One of the Best Kept Secrets 5*

The Fox and Anchor is one of London’s best kept secrets. The rooms are great, well furnished and with all the amenities you can ask for. The kicker is the bathroom which is massive for London standards! The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. The closest tube station is about a 5 minute walk away, so you are well connected as well. Well worth a visit if you are there for a weekend trip.

Great Local and Great Christmas Lunch 5*

A great pub with lovely staff. Come here often for a nice drink and a lovely meal. First time having Xmas work meal and it was great. Thom was very helpful and easy to get hold of. The food was awesome, great quality, lots of it and didn’t feel rushed.
