A food and drink utopia, The Anthologist Restaurant in London houses a contemporary British kitchen and delicatessen, a stunning drinks bar, 2 cocktail lounges and a luxurious wine store. All ingredients are sourced from the finest local producers at Borough Market.

A kaleidoscopic menu at The Anthologist Gresham Street ranges from British classic cottage pie, reworked with pancetta and swede mash, to prawn lollipops and katsu fries. Succulent steaks can be upgraded to surf 'n' turf with a half Scottish lobster. A separate breakfast and brunch menu offers a variety of options from around the world with cocktails such as the breakfast martini and variations on the bloody mary.

The Anthologist cocktail bar serves innovative and expertly-mixed cocktails. For those inspired by what they see, there are mixology lessons, as well as butchery and flambé classes. On Thursday and Friday nights, The Anthologist opens the doors to its exclusive roaring 20s-inspired London basement bar, 'The Blind Pig'.

The Anthologist in Bank sits a 3-minute walk from Bank Station.
