We went for a day date as a treat while our baby was with a childminder. Such a lovely little gem in Clerkenwell. Food was really excellent. Both set menus were good value. The starter of a English pea was outstanding and husband loved the lamb. They were a bit short staffed at the beginning but our waitress was so professional and courteous that we didn’t mind at all. Highly recommend.

After lots of research for good value, Michilen recommended tasting menus I finally settled on Anglo. It was my mums 65th birthday so wanted something special. We had lunch, full tasting and full wine package.
The restaurant itself is very unassuming and you wouldn't really walk past it, you really do have know it's there. Really basic inside, not pretentious at all, which is what I think the owner was trying to achieve. Staff were fantastic, the sommelier was very knowledgeable about the wine and drinks which would match the food. We had an additional cider to accompany the 'cheese on toast' and jeeeezzz it was amazing (I dont even like cider). I think at this stage I understood why certain drinks match certain food!! We.were seated at 2.10pm after running a little late and left at 5pm. We were not rushed at all which was fantastic.
Ok, so now the food.... tasty, flavorful, well presented, and was left you wanting more each time. We left full and content! The fish with oyster sauce was fantastic. Every dish was different and transitioned so well to the next. Would recommend all the add ons (scallops and cheese on toast were extra). I was surprised about the supplements but I was in there for the experience so i didn't mind.
My mum received a signed menu and chocolates at the end. Overall extremely pleasing afternoon!

Superb tasting menu with very interesting creative dishes. The cheese on toast with the truffle is sublime as was the mussels in cauliflower soup as well. Wine pairing was also a treat with some interesting matches provided that added that extra bit of quality to the night

Three of our party of four had the standard tasting menu, the fourth had the vegetarian alternative. The food is exceptionally good and the service was excellent. We chose not to have the pairing wines but shared three bottles over a long, enjoyable evening. The cost was £125 per head. A restaurant with so much ambition serves better decor and a more salubrious location.

We had the three course menu for £24.50 which was perfectly cooked and delicious. However, portions are very small, even for someone as myself who is not a big eater.
There was limited choice but happily my husband and I enjoyed everything we chose.

Really amazing dinner! The food was beautiful in both look and taste, but the drink pairing was what really made this exceptional. Such interesting choices (white Sangiovese being a standout).

We were recommended Anglo as a 'place to go' as we like the kind of food they served.

The food was OK, it didn't blow us away, for the price which was £238 for the two of us. It seemed like it was trying to be a Michelin star restuarant but neither the food nor the service was u to scratch. We waited a long time between courses for our plates to be cleared. Felt a bit like they needed another member of staff on hand. The beer final beer paring was a Camden beer, which is made by global giant ABinBev. Very disappointing it wasn't something independent. We googled a few of the wines, and some you could pick up in the supermarket for £8 a pop.

Probably wouldn't reccommend to friends, given that price. Lamb and fish were nice, though!

The food was amazing. Interesting yet still felt substantial. The lamb and tiramisu were stand out. Tasting menus can leave you feeling like you have grazed on a few veg and sauces...but not this one. Inventive. The tiramisu was amazing with each spoon revealing a new taste - rich rich chocolate sorbet, coffee, lime. Yum yum yum. A "proper dessert" in my book. The waiter was also very generous and enthusiastic in sharing his knowledge of wines. I'll be back!

I arrived hungry and I left hungry. The food was delicious but there wasn't enough of it and there was too little variety within the main course I chose. Some carbohydrate other than bread and some vegetables would have helped.
