Squaremeal Review of Fox & Anchor ?

You’d never know this fine-looking late-Victorian boozer was actually a hotel were it not for the ‘no vacancy’ sign above the door or the telling motto – ‘hops and chops, cuvées and duvets’. Inside, it’s everything you might expect, from the snug little nooks, leaded windows and mahogany bar to the hand-pumped ales from Young’s Brewery, craft beers, ciders and global wines to go with an appealing menu of pub classics and more fancy ideas. English charcuterie and ‘market boards’ are true to the pub’s location, while the menu also promises everything from salt beef sandwiches and kedgeree fishcakes to T-bone steaks with triple-cooked chips, beer-battered cod and lamb shank pie topped with creamy mash. This being Smithfield, there are meaty breakfasts too – try ‘the City boy’ with lamb’s kidneys, minute steak, calf’s liver and all the trimmings, plus a pint of London stout.

How odd that the only previous reviewer has chosen a picture which is such a close female version of the picture I use on Squaremeal ! I have frequented this place on and off for over 12 years, and very much prefer it since it was taken over by present management which I believe is associated with the hotel in Charterhouse Square. The term gastropub is a portmanteau word covering a mulititude of differing ambitions and achievements. However,if the F+A is an average pub so far as drink is concerned,...

Lovingly restored with plenty of nooks and crannies to hide in! Awesome wine and beer selection with ales served in pewter tankards. Excellent, friendly service and good, hearty food – loved the pork pie with crisp, fatty pastry and meaty filling. My only gripe is that the kitchen closes at 9.30pm on Saturday although the lovely staff did help find a table at another restaurant in the area.
