To eat, choose from luxe options prepared by adjoining restaurant Plum + Spilt Milk, including sustainable caviar blinis with creme fraiche, duck bonbons with Korean BBQ sauce, and Dorset crab & saffron arancini with basil mayonnaise.
Surprisingly quiet on a Wednesday night, very good service, and light and airy feel due to large windows. Pretty comprehensive wine list, only snacks eaten but good quality. Very quiet and great for a catch up with friends when you don't want to stand and shout at each other.
Service a bit slow
Great staff, good choice of cocktails.
Bar snacks OK
Relaxed cocktail bar with great service (Thanks Manuela!) and amazing Martinis.
Excellent and atmospheric. Only one problem - too dark to read the menu!
We had come to meet friends for cocktails who had arrived on the train from Yorkshire. Cocktails were fantastic and the ambiance amazing.
Early in Anthracite's career and so the bar was quite quiet on a Sunday early evening. Cocktails were excellent as was the service. The vibe will crank up as more people get to know about Anthracite. We enjoyed the environment and will return.
One round of cocktails was made with the wrong spirit (tequila instead of vodka)... the Barman refused to accept the fact (without tasting the drink)... quite a heated exchange to get the drinks remade. Not ideal when you are paying a premium for the drink.
Went there few days ago and was pleasantly surprised with this hidden gem.
It was just a bit difficult to find the hotel entrance but overall, i loved the martinis and will be going back there soon.
Cracking cocktails and very good martini menu.
