Restaurant description

Elevated 7 floors above ground level, Michelin star-awarded Angler brings quintessentially British fish and seafood to the edgy South Place Hotel. This rooftop retreat offers spectacular views over London landmarks, including Tower 42 and the Gherkin.

Simple yet sophisticated, the Angler menu comes courtesy of Gary Foulkes. Reflecting the best available produce, dishes may include Cornish cod, sole and langoustine ‘sausage’, or slow-roasted turbot. Vegetarians and carnivores are also amply catered for at Angler restaurant near Liverpool Street.

A painstakingly compiled wine list brings together 250 complementing bins, with a focus on fine French whites and lesser-known varieties from around the world. Designed by Tina Norden, the Angler London dining room features a stony grey palette and glass covered walls, while angled skylights frame unparalleled London views.

A new go-to spot for savvy foodies, the Angler roof terrace is a secluded yet vibrant hideaway. Angler restaurant is a 2-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station.

    The tasting menu provides an excellent and varied mix of mostly fish dishes and the wine pairing works well.

    The service pre and post lunch were a little hit and miss. There did not seem to be good communication between the dining staff and the bar staff. However service during the meal was very good and the food as always was excellent. Dining on the bookatable deal is good value.

    An excellent seafood dinner! The freshest ingredients I have ever tasted in the city. The dinner set menu was just perfect to kickstart the night. Had few complimentary deli from the chef which were very delicious. The service was attentive and neat. I remember my friends were telling me, the food melts in their mouth (that’s how good it is). I would definitely come back. Way to go Angler!!!!

    Innovative food and fantastic service - attentive but not too formal or fussy. Relaxed but classy ambiance. Pricing of side dishes and wine by the glass very reasonable.

    Food was very good. Went on a deal. Portions were small for evening meal. Perfect portions for lunch.

    The Bookatable set menu deal of £38 for 3 courses including a glass of champagne is great value and a brilliant way to visit this restaurant if you want to try it before committing to the cost of the a la Carte menu. The restaurant setting is wonderful and the seafood dishes are excellent. The seafood paella starter was excellent, as were the lamb and lemon sole mains. The desserts were very disappointing on this visit though. The chocolate tart from the a la Carte menu was far too rich and poorly executed. The chocolate ganache was so dominant in terms of flavour that you couldn’t taste the base, the banana creme or caramel do it was pointless having other flavours on the plate. The texture was also slightly off. The strawberry dessert was poor as well. A soggy soft biscuit with sickly sweet strawberry jam inside. The only part that was nice was the strawberry ice cream but that is hardly an exciting dessert I’ve been to this restauarant many times and service is normally very good. On this visit the service was a bit hit and miss. Some of the staff didn’t appear to be properly trained and seemed a bit lost. Others were not watching the tables and had to be flagged down. More consistent high quality service is required here if this restauarant is going to compete with others in the area. The dessert menu also needs a complete overall - to balance out the flavours and create more interesting dishes.
