Brunch at Foxlow, Balham

Cue next perfect brunch spot –  drum roll please… Foxlow restaurant. Situated in Balham, minutes from the station is this cute laid back restaurant, perfect for lazy weekend brunching, or late night dining. I didn’t realise from the outside how big it was going to be – inside there is plenty of dining space towards the back with a quirky bar at the front. Foxlow is one of four others, and was founded by friends ‘inspired by the kind of neighbourhood restaurant we’d love to have around the corner’.

Foxlow pride themselves on only serving the freshest produce from the best british farmers and fishermen. This is clear throughout (even the walls say it) and the food definitely reflects it! It’s important that diners understand the Foxlow message, that where possible it will be sustainable. From buying as much as they can from the UK, to coffee from ethical roasters  free-range milk is courtesy of the beautiful Guernseys roaming Bickfield Farm in Somerset.

So onto the food!! I dined with three friends so we all had a range from the brunch menu. Brunch is served from 10am until 3pm on Saturdays, and I definitely recommend you book. 

First up was my tasty meal, this was Loch Duart smoked salmon with leek & potato cakes including poached egg and crème fraîche for £8. Oh my goodness it was delicious!!

I felt an up close shot was perfect, I wish you could have tried this with me. Just look at that orange yolk, to me that alone just shows how god damn amazing the quality is.

Next up is, Eggs any way on toast for £5, (smoked salmon was an additional £2.50). For me this portion could have been a tiny bit bigger, but my friend Emily LOVED it!

Now here is the Foxlow Breakfast – including fried eggs, rare breed sausage, dry-cured bacon, tarragon mushrooms, spice-roasted tomato, herby white beans & toast for £10.50. I don’t eat meat but the bacon alone was thick and juicy and the boys were pretty chuffed with the overall combination.

I got some tea too, but realised as we were leaving they do bottomless brunch for an additional £18… WOW I will be back! Take a look at the brunch menu here.

Just thought I would show you a few more snaps of the inside, it was lovely and it says it all when the atmosphere is buzzing and friendly.
