The tasting menu is oddly presented, but there is some excellent cooking here, and there were no false notes in the meal. The restaurant itself is lacking in atmosphere, but the service is efficient and it is good to see the money being spent on producing fine food rather than on expensive decor.

This place is great. Should be getting more recognition than it currently is. Went to a "top" London restaurant a week earlier that is getting a lot of hype which does similar seasonal, modern, British food and Anglo blow them away. Every single dish.

I have been to many Michelin-star restaurants and Anglo is up there, beating them all. It’s all about the food and it’s presentation. No fuss decor, polite and relaxed service, but ever so efficient, reliable and fast. Had the table for the night with no rush to push us out to allow for more customers. We felt important and we loved every minute of it! Do yourself a favour and try this!

Whilst the staff were attentive, the restaurant had no ambience and offered poor value for money.

Notwithstanding that the location is in Farringdon and you can expect relatively high prices, it was hard to justify paying £13.50 for a main course vegetarian risotto that amounted to less than two tablespoons in quantity....

Absolutely sublime. Constantly surprised by the inventiveness, simplicity and bursting with flavour of all the dishes on the fabulous tasting menu. The drinks pairing is inspired.
Mark Jarvis is such a wonderful chef and has a great team working with him in Anglo, in the kitchen and front of house. Can't wait to go back.

Incredible meal with attentive service. Did not disappoint.
Last night I had the most incredible meal at Anglo.

The food and service was amazing, but a particular mention to the sommelier and the drinks pairing which consisted of 3 wines, 1 cider, 1 cocktail & 1 beer. I wouldn’t normally choose a cider for a tasting menu, but it was the best cider i’ve ever tasted ....and i’m from Somerset.

You can really tell the chef and sommelier are so passionate about what they do.

I was also impressed that although i didn't mention it was my bday, they noticed we were exchanging gifts, and then took it upon themselves to bring over a candle and wish me happy birthday.

I would highly recommend

Absolutely fabulous evening at Anglo - my third trip, always with different people; all of whom have LOVED it. We had the wine pairings too which were all fabulous - and Tom sent us the listing afterwards which was great as we both wanted to try some of them again they were so delicious. The food is better than many Michelin star (or even 2!) restaurants we've been to and incredible value: £142 each including both extra courses and a glass of fizz to start, along with 6 wines and about 8 courses. Unbelievable. We went to Greenhouse last year and spent about 4 times this per person, and the food was NOWEHERE near as good as here.

Latterly Anglo has found a fine balance to the food and menu. Flavours that are less punchy, less intense combinations, but greater harmony. Consequently there's a confidence to the cooking that feels new found. Great food, superb wine service, very friendly team.

Wines a little overpriced, 12£ for a small glass of Californian white is a lot.. Would go for the wine pairing next time.

Shout out for the salted cod - unbelievable.

My girlfriend is gluten free which caused no problems at all.

The food was fantastic. Most important the flavours and cooking were second to none. Presentation was excellent too.

The food is very modern british. The portion sizes are however very retro. Took me straight back to the early 80s. For this reason I would recommend the very reasonably priced tasting menu (which we didn’t have)

A meal we will always remember. We had huge admiration for the superbly crafted dishes! (all of the very many of them on the set degustation menu). In addition the extra quail dish we ordered was simply fabulous. The cooking combined flair & professionalism extraordinarily well. We thought it all showed an excellent balance between inventiveness and style with no hint of forcing or affect. Tiny quibble, & quite possibly our problem, but we found the ketchup element of the lamb neck dish didn't work for us. Advise going with the wine pairing option not the drinks one. It was an interesting premise but having relished the multiple wines (often interesting & outside the usual parameters)when these were followed by mead, cider, & sourbread beer with the desserts it just made for too much liquid at the end of the meal. Service is brilliant - really friendly, attentive without being invasive. Slick simple interior. The passion & attention to detail is evident in all. A big thank you. Birthday treat for my wife who is a professional food taster. She was very very happy!

Four of us went for partner's birthday. Two arrived earlier then booking but were seated immediately. Each and every dish of the tasting menu was absolutely gorgeous, both in taste and look. The dishes were spaced out according to us - not too fast us we were having a great time. At some point our companions realised we need to hurry up otherwise they'll miss their train, so the staff accommodated and dishes came more quickly. At the end we got an extra pudding with a Happy Birthday written on it in chocolate sauce and a candle, as well as the menu signed by all staff - my partner was really chaffed! Overall great experience.

Such a great spot. The ambience is chilled out and easy going, the food is spectacular. Really thought the service was excellent, we had a late table, we were the only people left, but the staff looked after us really well.

Also, don't be fooled by the small plates, you leave full!

Very much recommended, the highlight of my trip back.

My 2nd visit to Anglo, this time with my daughter. If possible it was even better than the first time and my daughter was thoroughly impressed. Your food is wonderful, your service amazing without being intrusive. Not pretentious but fab food. I liked the fact we were told there was a new pea and mint dish on the menu and we were asked for our feedback. Emma is a great asset and told us she is going to their new restaurant which I cannot wait to try. Don’t become pretentious or unaffordable because that is your attraction. Can’t wait to come back when the menu changes again (or even before).

Had a great meal for my birthday at Anglo. We did the regular Intros & 7-course tasting menu on a Thursday evening with the premium wine pairing. The food was really good and well explained, with a variety of different and interesting flavours and textures.
The chicken was my favourite course (which was moist and flavoursome), but the desserts were particularly standout too. We didn’t have any extra courses (such as the scallops) that we could have added on, but I was comfortably full at the end.
We were talked through the wine in detail and they really were some fantastic pairings. Several wines were also ones we wouldn’t try by ourselves: a Moroccan wine was an interesting choice that actually worked!
The service was excellent and I got a special surprise for my birthday, which I was really touched by and really made the difference. I’d really recommend this restaurant as my new favourite in London.

I booked our anniversary dinner at Anglo many months ago and the evening was well worth it. We added the cheese course to the tasting menu and had one drinks pairing (including beers) and one wine pairing. The food was exemplary and the service was wonderful. It’s not cheap but for a special occasion, highly highly highly recommended!
