Met a friend here for pre-theatre concert meal. We chose from the pre-theatre menu, which had a great variety of choices for carnivores, pescatarians, and vegetarian/vegans alike. This menu is also very well priced. We were attentively serviced by friendly waiting staff. Would definitely go again. Thanks to all the Anthologist and Drake & Morgan staff.

The restaurant was full of colour and had a nice relaxed feel. Being a Monday evening it was quiet but chilled. Beautiful decor I must say and most comfortable. The food was ok and service prompt. I had grilled swordfish on a bed of mango salad. It was a little overdone. All in very tasty. Would I recommend? Yes probably.

Very pretty and very good food and drinks so I recommend a visit. My only qualms were how loud it was (you did have to shout over the table) and it was a bit of a struggle to find a waiter to pay the bill but it will have felt worse as we were in a hurry. Overall, great place I'll go back again!

The non-alcoholic drink I ordered was virtually tasteless. The restaurant was far too noisy for us - the combination of an eating area and a bar area probably contributed to the high noise level. The fish pie I ordered lacked seasoning. We had to wait 45 minutes before our starter arrived which is unacceptable as the restaurant at that particular time wasn't busy. Overall a disappointing experience.

The bar was very noisy but that was to be expected for early Friday evening. The service & food were both very good. I’d highly recommend the menu.

It was our first visit and we enjoyed it. The service was good and so was the food. The only negative was the "music". I like dance music but when you can only hear the baseline, it becomes somewhat tedious and then annoying.

We had a great evening overall. The restaurant accommodated our slight lateness due the horrible manc traffic. Food and drinks were good..the duck salad was a little heavy on onions however it was well presented. The restaurant had a relaxed atmosphere. We intend to go back and explore the menu.

Booked a table for 4 online, kept up to date with reminders. From entering the bar, greater with warm welcome from very patient staff. Once we’d finally decided what we wanted service was very efficient. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening and we will be back

Met with a smile, service continued to be great and a fine menu made it tricky to choose. A massive starter meant I had to leave some of the excellent Chicken Pie. Good beers on tap and all in all a very pleasant visit. Would get five stars if v small things sorted - not running out of one side dish, etc.

Staff seemed more interested in wiping and relaying tables than checking on dining customers. A side was missed off our order and I had to get up and find a member of staff to tell them because after more than 10 minutes no one had come to check how our meals were. We then had to wait longer for our plates to be cleared. It wouldn’t stop me from coming again but not a great first impression.

Gorgeous decor embracing a scandi hygge vibe that was instantly relaxing. The crab linguine and chilean Sauvignon Blanc was outstanding and very kind of chef to prepare after it's special appearance in instagram the night before!

Very chilled with a bar terrace in front. Throws on chairs and perfect lighting made for a cosy and comfortable environment. Add an espresso martini and it's hard to leave!
