Wonderful little pub that is very well preserved and staffed by enthusiastic and friendly staff. Delightful menu with a great range of food with pleasant twists - great use of local product. Area used to be Smithfield Meat Markets and menu fits that well. In line with this I chose the mixed grill and wife lamb shank pie - both...

The Fox and Anchor is a characterful and traditional old boozer on the edge of Smithfield. I met an American colleague for dinner, and we enjoyed well-kept beer, excellent food and a friendly and quietly efficient waitress.

We started a day in London with breakfast at the Fox and Anchor. First class 'full monty' breakfast, great beer and a really lovely old pub. Will definitely be back next time we have another day in London.

This is a traditional style pub influenced by nearby Smithfield meat market. Young's beer on tap and a good menu, especially for breakfast! Worth a visit, especially if staying next door in the Malmaison.

I booked for 15 to have lunch last Friday and I would like to commend both the food (the twice baked cheese soufflé was very tasty) and particularly the young man who supervised our table. The prebooked food arrived promptly and accurately and the whole meal went smoothly and well. The pub itself is a fascinating survival with its layout...

The pub has a fantastic atmosphere, very old fashioned. The food is really amazing and the staff is very helpful. Went for early dinner. Bear in mind that is better to book a table since the dinning area is a little bit small. Worth a visit!

Great Old-School London pub located next to the old Smithfield Market. Great English fare with some interesting newer dishes and excellent beers. Highly recommended. Busy with all types of customers. Tucked away so you need to google maps.

A friend and I had breakfast on Friday morning at about 08.45. Breakfast here is a wide selection of properly done breakfasts, like full English, many different options for eggs (eggs Benedict etc.) and even breakfast with a pint of stout (the pub has an extended licence to serve the meat market next door). Food was excellent, service was both...

Fantastic atmosphere, we had a booth in the back of the pub, was atmospheric and really cosy. We chose a city breakfast which was a huge plate of sausage, bacon, steak, lover black pudding, beans, egg, mushrooms and fried bread. Very classy As it followed by a pint of Guinness! Recommended!

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled deep in the lively & exciting Smithfield area, the former original London gin-joint has been lovingly restored to its former glory and a whole lot more as well. The Fox & Anchor originates from the late Victorian era and has been serving the traders of Smithfield market for years. Grand mahogany doors, etched glass and heavy brass, we serve great British food alongside our favourite cask ales & craft beers. With 6 traditional rooms all with their own unique differences, the eclectic range of rooms are a hidden gem in the city. ... more   less
