The Anthologist, St Peter Square


Botanical bliss at One St Peter's Square.

Drake & Morgan have done it again. This time, it's The Anthologist; a swish restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of Manchester. Plush seating and soft lighting give the perfect setting to after work drinks, weekend brunch and family dinners. It's the perfect escape all year round, with a gorgeous summer terrace for alfresco lounging. And, did we mention you can bring your dog? 

The food is inspired by cuisine from around the world, so you can expect an assortment of standout dishes from Napoli flatbread to salt & Szechuan pepper squid, alongside classic sirloin steaks. As well as a stellar brunch offering, veggie options and vegan dishes, you'll find a dedicated children's menu and the choice to pre-order platters for large groups. Cocktails lean towards botanical blends, with signature concoctions containing gin and herbal liqueurs.
