Welcome to the Fox & Anchor

Honoured on the edge of Smithfield Market, a 5 minute walk to Barbican and Farringdon tube stations, we’re 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.  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.

We’re showing all August rugby warm-up matches on Channel 4 along with the Rugby World Cup 2019 matches live from Japan. Combine our unbeatable atmosphere, multiple tv screens and various brunch packages and you’ve got everything you need to watch England bring home the rugby cup this Autumn!
