The Fox Club

Mayfair has many secrets, but this is probably one of its best. (And well-kept). The Fox Club is the elegant bolthole ensconced on Clarges Street – it just happens to be the former home of statesman, Charles James Fox. The Restaurant, which serves such delights as Maple Roasted Leg of Duck, Warmed Spiced Apple Charlotte with Brandy Butter, etc, is a favourite among locals during busy lunchtimes, or for early evenings for a much-needed sundowner. Supper is sumptuous and draws just as many people, if not more, into its dining halls. There are pristinely-kept, hand-furnished rooms upstairs, too, just in […]
