Restaurants in Clerkenwell

Vegetarians need not read further. Housed in a whitewashed old smokehouse near Smithfield meat market, St. John couldn’t be called a gastropub. But owner Fergus Henderson, who opened this establishment in 1994, is a canonized figure on the revitalized British restaurant scene.

“Hops & chops, cuvées & duvets” is the overly cute motto of the otherwise note-perfect Fox & Anchor, a Victorian pub in Clerkenwell that’s recently been given a face-lift by the folks from the boutique Malmaison hotel.

Blissful breakfasts, midday light bites and deliciously daring dinner creations await patrons at this exciting eatery from chef Anna Hansen.
