About

Foxlow has taken over the ground floor and basement of a former office building just off Golden Square at 8-10 Lower James Street, W1F 9EL.
The lively interior and atmosphere reflects the location, whilst also retaining the familiarity of the trusted, comfortable local – perfect for everything from fun dinners with friends and family gatherings, to a leisurely brunch armed with the weekend papers.
Foxlow Soho will be open daily for lunch and dinner in addition to weekend brunch, which will include the famous Fried chicken, egg & croissant waffle. Theatregoers and value-seekers will love the set menu and on Tuesday nights (as with all Foxlow restaurants) customers will be able to bring their own wine, corkage free. Weekend brunching will take place from 10am – 3pm with several new brunch cocktails alongside bottomless Bloody Marys. And Sundays at Foxlow are well known for roasts, either Beef with all the trimmings or the new Chicken pot roast.

I don't know if it's just because the restaurant is closing, but the ambiance was a bit fraught, and the tables were put so close together that it was hard to maintain a conversation. Food was good and nice to have some seasonality too.

Relaxed, informal and fun Soho restaurant. Short but well thought out menu. All dishes we ordered were delicious and perfectly cooked. Great value for its location and quality.

After trying loads of different places in Soho for lunch with friends, it's always lovely to come back to Foxlow. We had to make an event of it last Saturday, as it is closing down permanently this Thursday, which is a great shame. I hope I can visit one of their other restaurants soon, but it's going to be sad not to be able to use them for our lunch meets anymore.

I wish I could recommend! So sad it is closing.. I will miss this restaurant very much.
The staff are amazing.. the kitchen great. Their cocktails knocked most bars out of the park..
Foxlow Soho was perfect for any date I had.
I have no idea where I will go for a post work catch up now...
I work in The City.. so great to mooch to the West End during the week! Argh..
Please if you can, re-open another Foxlow in the soho area soon..

Full English brunch and bottomless prosecco- what's not to like! Great service, by the way, attentive without being intrusive.

We ate at Foxlow Soho at 6.45pm. A party of three, two of us arrived early to avail of the £5 cocktails before 7pm. We had another one before our friend arrived. Service was attentive but not overbearing and all the food delicious. Only downside was being downstairs which was a little quiet and the second time I’d been seated downstairs.

Everything was slightly disappointing, from the 90 minute reservation slot to the happy hour cocktails. Our waitress was unfriendly and sarcastic. The steaks were very average and we expected a lot better having dined at Hawksmoor. All in all, very “meh”.

Great food. Window for bottomless brunch drinks a little short at 1.5 hours.

Combo of brunch and roasts very unique and all were excellent.

Fried chicken with waffle croissant was brilliant as was the poutine.

Roast beef nice thick slices of rare beef.

Bloody Mary’s were very good too.

Highly recommended.

The food tasted amazing. I had the Sunday roast and a sticky toffee pudding. The waiting staff were very attentive when it came to the bottomless prosecco for the weekend brunch, so the value for money was impeccable. It also wasn't too busy or too loud and it had a sort of hipster/homely vibe to it. I'd definitely go back, especially at the price it was - the bill came up to £96 for 3 people having 2 courses each.

The staff were all extremely friendly, attentive and flexible to our needs. They ensured my nephew was entertained, and nobody ever walked past without a smile on their face. Thank you for making my mum's mother's day! Will certainly be coming back.

great for an early dinner catch up with friends. Nice location close to Oxford and Picadilly circuses, but tucked away on a quieter back street. Nice decor. Friendly welcome and lovely service. We were near the front window so it was nice and airy (although the booths are pretty snug, so there isn't much room). Starters were amazing - such lovely choice. I had kale salad which was delicious and also tried my friends' salmon crudo and squid which were also awesome. I had sirloin steak which was a little on the chewy side, with nice fries and lovely roasted carrots. Don't usually go for a dessert, but I'm so glad we did. The sticky toffee pudding was gorgeous, my diary intolerant friend had the posset which was beautifully coconutty, and we also had the Reese with a spoon which was pretty heavenly, and the rhubarb pudding which had great flavours but was a little heavy. all in all a lovely stop off mid-shopping.

Small portions for chicken roast and poor service (had to request several times for water / to order) . Although a second portion was provided this was begrudgingly. Not good value for money

The service was excellent and that alone would make me return. Food was delicious, one of the best steaks I've had (flat iron). The vegetarian & vegan dishes sound amazing, the one I tasted was indeed delicious, however, the price is outrageous for what is actually being served. Definitely would go hungry if ordered a vegetarian/vegan main. This place is definitely not value for money and it's ambiance and market positioning doesn't justify the price.

Food was good. Service wasn’t amazing, the waiter asked if he wanted anything else, we said “not right now” and then the bill was placed on the table. We both wanted to still order a hot drink but couldn’t.

Service is very friendly and food is good - a British take on American-style comfort food.

Confirmation of reservation was farcical. I was sent a text by a number I couldn't reply to by text or by calling. When I rang Foxlow I got into a call handling system that sent me to voicemail. What was the point of that?
