Hawksmoor’s younger sibling brings superior steak and cocktails to W4.
Please note, Foxlow Chiswick has now closed. Time Out Food editors, March 2018.
Unless you're absolutely minted, the chances are you’ll never live close to a Hawksmoor. Never fear: the people behind the temple to steak have been rolling out its younger sibling Foxlow to the ‘burbs, with sites in Stokey, Balham and this one replacing Sam’s Brasserie in Chiswick. It might not carry the same kudos as its older bro, but the steaks are from the same farm (the Ginger Pig in Yorkshire) so it’s the closest thing you can get round these parts. You’ll still have to shell out for quality cow, though: my rib-bib-eye cost £23 before fries (£3.50), but it tasted like money well spent for what was a fine piece of meat, perfectly cooked to order.
Not everything’s so meaty – deep-fried spiced squid and hummus, with a drizzle of green harissa were consistent small plates. Sadly, puddings were disappointing on both the occasions we visited.
Foxlow hasn’t done anything dramatic to the spacious interior since the team took over. The light and airy front bar remains a good spot for cocktails, but if you’re a local hankering after steak, this is as good as it gets in W4.
