Venue Testimonials

Brilliant venue for a wedding, the staff were excellent and managed the occasion really swiftly, bringing out amazing quality food to over 100 people and then a fantastic assortment of different, flavoursome foods throughout the evening. They were also really great at the end of the night, sorting out taxis for people who needed them. Thank you again, a brilliant job by all!

We organised our wedding reception at the Anthologist, and it was the loveliest wedding party ever. The restaurant itself is very beautiful and doesn’t need any decoration, but adding a couple of small details it becomes the dream wedding venue. Everyone was so nice, helpful and made sure that our guests were happy at all times. The food was amazing as well.

From start to finish, the Anthologist was so accommodating. In difficult times they made it so easy. Customer service is second to none. In particular, a massive thanks to Caroline, who nothing was too much trouble for. Already booked to come again. Such a beautiful restaurant with lovely staff, food and drinks!
