The Anthologist bar and restaurant is tucked away near the gorgeous Guildhall, a Roman amphitheatre and a 17th century place of worship (the Lord Mayor of London's official church).

I'm often in this bar after work, and to be honest, feel like it's largely style over substance. It's always extremely busy, and it's a classy bar and venue, but is far too expensive for what it ultimately offers. A small bottle of beer for £6? No thanks

I've yet to eat here, but judging from friends' experiences and the price of the menu, it won't be something I'll be trying any time soon....more
