Angler’s Executive Chef, Gary Foulkes, has curated a bespoke menu of Michelin-starred herbal bar snacks designed to pair perfectly with the refreshing, gin-based drinks. These include Grilled flatbread, lemon verbena pesto, garden herb cream, Wild garlic, Ragstone arancin, or Crispy Cornish seafood, lovage and lemon mayonnaise. Smaller snacks to nibble on will also be available, such as Pistou nuts and Giarraffa green olives.
Angler’s sun-drenched, 7th-floor terrace will be dressed in fragrant flowers and foliage to match the blossoming cocktails and bring an English country garden to London. Cotswolds gin and the floral-inspired terrace at Angler will create the perfect haven for city-dwellers to escape to the country all summer long.
