Situated on London’s Gresham Street, close to the Museum of London, The Anthologist bar and deli restaurant provides the ideal antidote to the stresses and noise of the city. Boasting a thoroughly modern design in an airy loft space, complete with exposed ducting, high stools and long canteen style tables, low hanging industrial inspired lighting, pressed tin ceilings and curved wood bar, The Anthologist is eclectic and quirky without an ounce of pretentiousness. Unashamed in its claim to ‘have it all’, here at The Anthologist your every wish is granted – ranging from a perfectly brewed morning coffee to a deli-fresh quick-fire lunch, from a hand-blended almost healthy cocktail to a delish dinner at the Chef’s Table. Wherever possible, The Anthologist works alongside local suppliers and artisans to offers guests the highest quality meals, wines and drinks. The menus provide a taste of the traditional on sharing boards and home-baked breads as well as gourmet twists.

    Good location near Bank station. Comfortable seating and quiet ambience - great for business discussions. Nice alcohol-free cocktails and small plates. But shockingly dreadful main! The Goan Curry with chicken had been microwaved to destruction: the chicken was rock hard and very dry. The naan bread instead of being soft was very stiff cardboard. When mentioned to the waitress, she promised to tell the cook. Took payment in full, and nothing more was said. Clearly no concerns about whether we would come back (we won’t!) A mouse was running around below a nearby table. I don’t think he would have liked my food!

    Great food and the service was very attentive and quick. The only negative was that the sauces for the steak were not that nice

    Food was tasty and service was good - not too intrusive but attentive. Didn’t take too long to arrive - had the herb crusted cod which was gorgeous

    It had been a while since last at the Anthologist, but on a rainy Friday it was good to see it busy. Good food and service.

    For a long overdue catch-up this place was great, the staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive, they gave us a lovely round table slightly tucked away from the noise of the main bar so we could hear each other. Food was delicious and they gave a little birthday surprise to one of our guests. Thank and we will definitely come back again.
