We went there for lunch with a group of colleagues and it felt like such a breath of fresh air... no financer stuffiness here and certainly no rancid old pub smell, this is the perfect place to come for a fun drink or lunch with colleagues and friends. Outside there are dining tables, a more comfortable lounging area and even a ping-pong table for some end of the work day fun! Definitely a step above the usual pint, and so much more my cup of tea.
The menu is made of an imaginative mix of salads, sandwiches and main dishes, with the ricotta and parma ham salad a firm favourite around our table, as well as the chicken sandwich. My own ceviche of salmon didn't look or taste much of ceviche, but that was the exception more than the rule. My home made ice tea however, tasted absolutely delicious.
The interior design is, just like at The Anthologist, modern and stylish, with apparent wall works and quirky decor details, such as the serving spoons and forks chandelier. As with The Anthologist, the only improvement I'd make to this lovely place is the service, which needs less haste and more care...
