Situated just off of Leather Lane in Farringdon, Anglo is a modern British dining room.

With an emphasis on simple, refined dishes we offer a tasting menu for both lunch and dinner (Tuesday to Saturday). For weekday lunches where there may not be the time to enjoy the full tasting menu, we offer a 3 course option where you can sample some of the flavours we produce at Anglo.

I understand there is a new chef. The food is still imaginative but perhaps less so than before. That said, the service was much better. It was also quieter. I think the chef will find his form and the restaurant will be excellent.

Sorry to write I was a bit disappointed
and I was expecting a bit more for a a New Year's Eve menu.

Food was ok, wine was ok, although we were definetely expecting more quality for such the occasion.
Portions were absolutely tiny (especially the langustine), not even in a 3 stars michelin restaurant I was served such minuscule portion as a main? Langustine with truffle? Where was the real grated/shaved truffle?
Monkfish was raw inside, bland and average
I felt dishes were more of a welcome rather than mains (a part from the beef).
Overall service was great and the atmosphere casual and stylish.
Very average sort of experience, was overpriced and I expecting much better for the price we paid!

Overpriced and unimpressive. The food was ok but I expected much more skillfully paired flavors and long lasting impression. It wasn’t bad but really forgettable.

Service wise, it seemed like the staff didn’t know inside-out their menu, which was disappointing as it is made of 7-8 Tasting menu dishes - how hard can it be?
There was a bit of a frustration on our side when it comes to receiving the next meal as our conversations were always interrupted in order for the food to be presented.

I believe the menu is overpriced for what it is and doubt I’ll recommend this restaurant or will come back myself.

It seems that the concept for boutique, luxury tailored restaurant was not quite achieved.

I absolutely adore Anglo. Incredibly lucky to have a restaurant of this quality in the neighborhood. Mark Jarvis is cooking at the top of his game. Can't fault it in any way.

We had the set lunch. The food was superb, but the portions were minuscule - not only the expensive fish, but also cheaper Welsh rarebit (3rd course) and the starter. Three bites, and...gone.

Really great food. Really great service. Really annoying guy who was having dinner there and wanted to let everyone know his politics. That was a minor quibble.

The restaurant was sadly a bit empty on a Tues night in December. However, there were just enough people to give a gentle ambiance. Food was delicious, with courses getting progressively more filling. I enjoyed the cheese on toast but it divided the crowd. Would come back. The £55 tasting menu was good value for very accomplished food.

A good value high quality tasting menu for lunch. Food was excellent, enjoyed everything we had. The accompanying wines were well-suited for the most part, with some active discussion of whether one of the reds needed to be fuller. We were there for 3 hours, and would not hesitate to recommend Anglo.

We had the most amazing time , it was everything I was hoping it would be. The food so well thought out the flavours created such excitement from my guest's who were both vegetarians and the staff professionalism and knowledge on each dish as well as the wine made for an absolute wonderful evening, Thank you so much Mark and your amazing team. xXx

Great value and delicious lunchtime menu is always a hit with me. Well conceived dishes that pack a punch of flavour. The yeast butter and smoked rapeseed oil paired with the sourdough kick the journey off perfectly. Do try and enjoy!

Delicious 3 course set menu. All courses were fantastic. Service was polite and swift. Restaurant was quiet when we arrived but got busy by the time we left. I will definitely go again.

Food was superb, loved every course. We had wine pairing as well with some well chosen wine with a nice explanation given of each wine- 2 of the grp dont drink red wine but staff happily swapped out reds for white which was much appreciated.
The venue is basic but fine, we felt comfortable and well looked after. We weren't rushed at all.
Would recommend for groups of friends as well as couples.

Three visits over a 12 month period and three superb meals. Excellent flavours and presentation. Very hard to choose our favourite course as every one was mouth watering. Can't wait until we are next in London so that we can visit again. Very highly recommended.

Fabulous flavours and beautiful food in each and every course. A beautiful tasting menu, as good as some we've had at more than double this price.
The staff were lovely and friendly, the pace was just right. Faultless!
Thank you for a superb meal.

The food was great. The service was never bad, but seemed to change shift part way through and tailed off a bit. The decor (and loo's) need a bit more decoration to make the whole offer a bit more attractive, but the place was full and quite buzzing, and you can just enjoy the company of your table companions whist relishing the delicious food.

Completely unassuming and unpretentious restaurant with no frills but fantastic food and service.
Note that only the tasting menu is available at the weekend however, which is worth the experience but was more than we'd planned to spend on lunch. This means no choice, but they were very accomodating and provided an alternative to the meat course. It was very quiet at lunchtime, which was perfect for our group, but I imagine it is buzzier in the evening. Would definitely recommend.

Terrific experience as usual. Great food and atmosphere. Had an old friend from out of town and it was the perfect setting to catch up. Anxious to see your new wine menu, as it was clearly under construction. First time tasting the red version AO’s SP68. Very nice little wine.
