We are Regular visitor to this fantastic little pub on charterhouse square. It serves great ales, including a unique house beer, and a good selection of very good quality food. Its not the cheapest pub for food we found but quality is higher than similar local establishments.

Had a brunch option - potato hash, duck egg and ham. It was exceptionally good. That and a glass of house wine cost just over £10. The pub was quite tucked away and quiet on a Friday lunchtime but I was suprised it wasn't busier. Much better than SoS and others nearby, and much better value.

Great place to stop and have some food and a drink after a day of sightseeing. Yum food. Sat outside and watched London go by.... situated 15 minutes walk from the museum of London and about 20 minutes from the Thames.

We were in here just after ten a.m. And found it open and serving already like a few of the other market pubs that service the workers at Smithfields. It's a lovely old pub with the sort of decor you get just about nowhere else in the world and is right on top of some fascinating areas like St Barts... More

It's layout looks like it's probably always been, with lots of nooks and crannies and wood-panelled 'private' dining areas. The beer is as good (or better?) than ever. The food, though, was pretty moderate.

....owned by a chain, but they have worked hard to maintain its integrity and character and there's the added bonus of being able to stay at a Malmaison too if you decide to push the boat out and work your way across the pumps. Really quirky London pub filled with alternate long, leather clad benches and nooks and crannies that... More

The Fox and Anchor is a lively pub and we had our room on the first floor. We stayed in the St. Barth room which was large and had a very generous Shower and Bathtub. Apart from the noise from the building site across the street, the Fox and Anchor could be a quite place to stay in the middle... More

Stayed here in their boutique hotel recently. Great comfortable room with everything you could need. Great shower and bathtub (separate). One of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in and the room was spacious and well decorated. The food and service in the pub was excellent. Would definitely recommend to stay and eat here.

Used to visit this pub when it was proper market pub. However it was closed for a long time and was later revamped. Three of us had a breakfast here plus a few drinks. The visit was fine and we will be back again. Just a pity the area is loosing its "market pubs"

This pub has got good beers and the food is excellent. It also has got a small but beautiful boutique hotel next doors. The pub itself has got a great warm atmosphere. Its also very central and close to Smithfields market.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood 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
