SquareMeal Review of The Anthologist

This big and brash all-day bar/diner from Drake & Morgan is a looker, with a glazed wall of Champagne bottles and appetising deli displays adding colour and theatre to the pearl-grey interior. Attractively priced wines are listed by style, with plenty available by the glass; lager drinkers are spoiled for choice and the cocktail range encompasses all the classics. The menu offers something for everybody, from prawn lollipops to flatbreads and dips, club sandwiches and market-fresh seafood. There's also a kid's menu, while breakfast options include a list of naughty (chicken and waffles, burgers) and nice (Greek yoghurt, ricotta bruschetta) ways to kickstart your day.

This was my first visit to The Anthologist for a reunion lunch for 6 people and had selected it as it was central to where we all worked. We were given a booth with a large round table which was perfect for our needs. The menu catered for all our dietary requirements and I thoroughly enjoyed the duck salad. The drinks were reasonably priced. A few of us stayed on for further drinks after a couple of people left so feel this venue was ideal for our needs.

Had a quick working lunch here, the atmosphere was busy as to be expected, however not full for a lunchtime rush, we waited a while to be served drinks and then food. The food was fine but wouldn't rave about it, quick and easy for a light lunch in the middle of the working week.
