Review on Fox & Anchor

'Hops & Chops, Cuvées and Duvets' is an apt slogan for this classily re-invented pub-with-rooms. The building itself - a listed 200-year-old porters' drop-in near Smithfield Market - has been impressively transformed, with mahogany doors, etched glass and a fine pewter bar serving as the centrepiece.

The kitchen works to a short, sharp menu of smart British pub food, which trawls its way through mussels cooked in Aspall cider, various savouries on toast (duck egg mayonnaise, potted salmon) and a few robust main courses ranging from ham hock with colcannon mash and parsley sauce to traditional fish pie.

Oysters are also available and there's always a daily roast carved from the trolley (rib of beef on the bone with Yorkshire pudding and roasted bone marrow, for example). For afters, expect old faithfuls like spotted dick, Knickerbocker Glory and sticky toffee pudding with custard. Real ales and an expansive 100-bin wine list satisfy the drinkers.
