Will Beckett and Huw Gott, co-owners of Hawksmoor and Foxlow, have agreed to buy Sam’s Brasserie in Chiswick and Harrison’s in Balham from owner Sam Harrison. Foxlow Chiswick and Foxlow Balham will launch in October and November 2015.
Will and Huw’s first Foxlow restaurant opened in Clerkenwell in late 2013 and it has also found a second home on Stoke Newington Church Street earlier this year. Foxlow is intended to be the perfect neighbourhood restaurant – open seven days a week for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, with the same focus on great food and drink and brilliant service from people who love what they do. Signature dishes include Crispy Five Pepper Squid and Farro Fattoush; steaks from the Ginger Pig, Fried Chicken with Habanero Vinegar and Brixham Hake with Romesco.
Foxlow Chiswick will be situated at Barley Mow Centre, 11 Barley Mow Passage, W4 4PH and will have a 100-cover restaurant and 50-cover bar. Foxlow Balham will be at 15-19 Bedford Hill, SW12 9EX with a 90-cover ground floor restaurant and a stand-alone 30-cover bar downstairs. Macaulay Sinclair will, along with Huw Gott be in charge of the interiors for both restaurants.
