Review: Foxlow, Clerkenwell, London

Before our day of exploring South London we needed to have a suitably filling brunch to warm us up for the day. Enter Foxlow. This modern European restaurant is owned by the same guys as Hawksmoor. Billed as a casual neighbourhood restaurant, it has a cracking cocktail list and prides itself on good quality produce. After sampling the brunch menu, I cannot wait to try their Sunday lunch. It looks absolutely divine on their Instagram!

After much deliberation I opted for the avocado and feta on sourdough toast topped with two poached eggs. And because this seemed way too healthy for a Saturday morning I ordered a side of bacon. Bacon makes everything better. The salty chunks of feta were the ideal partner to the creamy avocado. The perfectly poached eggs had a brilliantly orange runny yolk - something so simple yet so hard to achieve. I had seriously food envy when Lily's Moroccan eggs appeared - definitely the first thing I'm ordering next time I pop in! Hannah's mac and cheese was also a winner. The crispy breadcrumb layer added a satisfying crunch to the gooey cheesy pasta. I may have helped myself to a fair few forkfuls.

All in all Foxlow is a great option for brunch in the city. Prices are reasonable, the food is prompt and delicious and the waiting staff are attentive. It's not mega cheap but prices won't make your eyes water either. I loved the laid back vibe and the fact that we could take our time - we had a lot of catching up to do! I'll definitely be back soon to sample those Moroccan eggs...


  1. Love that you added bacon! That meal was definitely missing it!
    This looks absolutely lovely. I'm getting a bit bored of the normal brunch options.

  2. Oh those eggs look divine all round! Can't beat a good brunch
