This was our first time at Anglo. We went because it was one of A A Gill’s favourite restaurants. Tucked away up a side street in Clerkenwell I wasn’t sure about it as I approached. Quite a casual restaurant which we loved. The tasting menu blew us away we thought it and the drinks tasting menu (the one with the ale and cider as well as wine) was sublime. Honestly can say this was the nicest, most experimental meal we have ever had.

An excellent menu and wine list. This restaurant served one of the best tasting menus I’ve had in London. The pork belly and beef courses were exceptional and they offered some great dessert wines. Very much recommended!

I came across Anglo Restaurant after some research on tasting menus in London, and boy, it didn’t disappoint. With its great value for money, it was one of the best tasting menus/ food I have ever had. It’s quirky menu with bold flavours left me wanting more. The mushroom truffle broth, pork belly and cauliflower dishes were just amazing. The staff were extremely attentive and knew the menu inside out. Highly recommend!!

After being recommended by friends, we did the lunch time tasting menu. Creative and accomplished modern british cooking without being too pretentious. The Venison tartare was one of the best dishes of the year.
Small but well thought-out wine list with lots of interesting and unusual choices.
All round we thought it was exceptionally good value and will be back again.

This small restaurant is a little gem. The food, the staff and the drinks work effortlessly to deliver quality food that has almost mystical qualities. If you can get a table do it, don't be put off by the single tasting menu it's to die for.

This was my second trip to Anglo and the first time for lunch. Having the option of one, two, three or five courses at a fixed priced for each option is great as it gives you flexibility and choice and some budget control. The decor is stripped back and the staff are friendly but at Anglo the food is the star. Each course was a taste-packed morcel. The portions are small enough so that we could have three courses, each one outstanding, without feeling too full. Presentation is immaculate, each beautiful dish brought to table and explained by a chef, which adds to the enjoyment. There is just enough science and innovation to keep things interesting without it getting in the way of flavour. Overall I was delighted that the whole-evening tasting menu experience that I had tried before could also translate into a manageable business lunch of exceptional quality.

I work on Hatton Garden and have walked past Anglo frequently and always wanted to try it out and I finally did with a couple of work colleagues. For a Tuesday night dinner it still felt like a special occasion and the service was amazing. The food was delightful and creative.

Outstanding food. Like nothing we have eaten before. Recommend having the wines matched to each dish for the chance to try wines which would be too expensive to have by the bottle. Service was also spot on.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who was a chef at The Five Fields, a Michelin star restaurant in it's own right. I asked for an intimate space with excellent food and that's exactly what we got.

We were greeted and shown to our table, where the evenings tasting menu was explained to us. The price was reasonable for the number of courses and we decided to go for a few extras like truffles on our cheese course and I went for the deer instead of pork belly.

Overall both myself and my partner had a fantastic experience at Anglo, the atmosphere was great and the food was of a very high standard. Attention to detail was obvious and the stand out dish for me was the ray wing and oyster. The fish was cooked to absolute perfection and the flavours and textures worked perfectly with the seaweed and sauce.

I would definitely come back, to try the next menu. The dishes are exciting and the food is the real focus here, so thoroughly recommended.

What a brilliant find (via Open Table!) Not far from our office in Clerkenwell. Visited for my wife's birthday.

Tiny place (20 covers) so you really need to book - full on a Monday evening: you have been warned

In the evening there is set tasting menu of 7 courses plus three amuse-bouches. At £45 this is a "steal" for the quality, charming service, knowledge, enthusiasm and imagination/cooking skill. Good wine and drinks list and a choice of matching drinks at £35 per head and premium wines at £45 per head (we went for the latter and they were largely extremely well matched and very good)

AB's great, particularly the "mushroom broth" which was amazing

Stand outs of the 7 tasting courses were ray wing with kombu and oyster, pan fried foie gras with grapes and almonds (£12.50 supplement for additional eighth course - fab and worth it!), wild fallow deer with girolles and black garlic (melted in the mouth); the best course was cheese (sheep's - finely grated pecorino style) with burnt onion on malt loaf (home made) - absolutely mind-blowing and also both of the two desserts and the pre-dessert (sea buckthorn curd, which was lovely)

Seriously recommended. Go before they get a star! One of the best meals I have had this year and I have had a lot! We will certainly be going again

They're aiming for high quality creative cooking but without pretension. I'd say they've delivered that brief perfectly.

Really creative, well-executed menu with interesting wine pairings. Good service which was neither intrusive nor stand-offish. I was there by myself and never felt out of place or that I was treated differently.

One of the chefs, Jack Cashmore, has previously worked with Sat Bains. I have been to his restaurant in Nottingham and I'd be more likely to return to Anglo.

Food and service were outstanding. The menu was a real treat, packed with many unusual ingredients and the drinks pairing went really well. Only minor downside was our table gave us a view of serving area, where we could see staff decanting contents of half drunk beer bottles together back into fridge for presumably subsequent use - unnecessary parsimony.

Lovely restaurant and a nice little find! Exciting dishes and a great tasting menu! Really impressed with the service. Called to check about my fussiness over desserts! Exactly what you get from Michelin star establishments. Really loved the food and enjoyed every bit. Would have licked the plates if I were at home it was that tasty. Only tiny thing is that it is quite small and there are a lot of guests so grabbing attention too get the bill was a bit tricky as well the place is popular but as we were in no rush it was fine. Other than that teeny tiny thing this place is pretty much perfection!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to Anglo for a reunion with friends whom I hadn't seen for 30 years. The food was absolutely incredible. The flavours and textures were AMAZING. We also tried the wine pairing option, which was well worth it. The wines (and cider) were balanced, well chosen and did more than justice to each fantastic course (7 in total)! But the stars of the evening were ALL of the staff; friendly, attentive (but not obtrusive or sniffy), knew their stuff and were truly sensational. Highly recommended. HUGE luck with the expansion plans, guys!!!! 😊

Service excellent initially, but a little slow towards the end when the restaurant was full - we had to catch a train home! Very good value for money and would definitely recommend to anyone who like superb, creative food.
