After a fantastic 6 years we have made the decision to close the two remaining Foxlow restaurants.
Once Soho closed we started to receive other offers, and decided to sell Foxlow Clerkenwell and simultaneously close the Balham restaurant, which seems better to us than continuing to trade and leave staff, suppliers and customers in a period of uncertainty. We’ll now be focusing on making sure that those people are looked after in the right way.
When we opened our first Foxlow we wanted to create a great neighbourhood restaurant, doing the things that we believe in: sourcing food from the best British farmers and fishermen, treating staff well and allowing them in turn to show our customers the kind of hospitality that we enjoy giving and receiving ourselves.
However, in the end we couldn’t see a future where Foxlow grew as a business. With Foxlow closed we will be able to focus exclusively on Hawksmoor, which continues to thrive in the UK and on our opening in New York this Autumn. Hopefully Hawksmoor’s success and integrity will mean that many of the people who worked in Foxlow will move to Hawksmoor to continue to build their careers with us, which we believe is testament to the exceptional people and culture we have here. We also hope Hawksmoor will enable us to stay in touch with you, our customers. If you would like to hear about things we’re doing at Hawksmoor, about our offers and events, then you can do so by signing up to our newsletter here.
Of course, we’d love to see you between now and then, and hope you’ll pop in to say goodbye. The last day of service will be lunchtime on Friday 28th June which is now fully booked so we’d love to see you before.
To everyone that supported Foxlow and have made the last 6 years so enjoyable for us all, thank you so much. Will & Huw X
