Excellent cocktails, friendly barmen. Didn’t eat food but imagine it would be good. Hidden gem!
Not much a variety on the cocktails despite being a cocktail bar.
The lighting was very dark.
I spend my life searching for places that can make the perfect gin martini. This place knocked it out of the ball park!
It was also quiet enough to hear conversation and chilled enough to feel relaxed. Lovely!
Just met with friends for a drink and nibbles, not a meal. Quiet and easy to talk. Comfortable. Good service.
Amazing cocktail list, great ambience, excellent service
The drinks may be a little pricey, but you can take your time to enjoy them in the relaxing atmosphere of Anthracite.
Great place to stop for a good cocktail. Relaxed atmosphere. Great service.
Amazing staff and service.. Love it
The seats, level of service and atmosphere is great
Great service, drinks and atmosphere. Our server gave great recommendations on the cocktail menu. Would recommend and return!
I had a social event at anthracite bar on Friday 16th August and was absolutely delighted with the whole experience. The venue was wonderful including decor and ambience and the service by staff was excellent ; they were highly attentive, polite and knowledgable as well as friendly and approachable. As well as it being a work social night out, it also happened to be my birthday- staff were amazing to acknowledge this and made it even more special by offering chocolates plated with a birthday message.
I can't recommend it highly enough and would like to express my thanks to all staff involved in making our night so great!
Very rude hostess, not a place I’d choose to spend my hard earned cash. I’m sure there are better, less pretentious places in the area.
Super service, great atmosphere, quality drinks! Good place to avoid the usual crowds and queueing
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.
