Stay at the Fox & Anchor

Your author is always banging on about how to make the most of your surroundings you should allow yourself occasional holidays in them, and last weekend he was lucky enough to be taken on a weekend away to London by someone special, staying at the Fox & Anchor in Smithfield. A beautiful pub outside, with a frontage designed by William Neatby in 1898 and decorated with Royal Doulton Art Nouveau tiles, it is just as beautiful inside.

A beautiful little pub about which positive words have been written here before, the Fox and Anchor is popular with after-work drinkers and those who like good pub food, whilst those who are staying the night are given a key to a secret door at the front through which they make their way upstairs to one of six rooms loosely themed around the local area. Your author stayed in the St Barts room, which had a view from the front windows, plenty of space and a fine bathroom, interspersed with some great food downstairs and a walk to John Betjeman's flat on Cloth Fair.
