Fluid Reviews

The Lord Raglan, City of London (Bar)
“Quaint and a sure-fire hit with the tourist brigade, the Lord Raglan is a grand old pub right in the heart of the City. Like the way pubs used to be, it’s dark, smoky but cosy with it. None of your...”

Balls Brothers (closed), City of London (Bar)
“THIS VENUE IS NOW CLOSED. It has to be said for the Balls Brothers – if you want to impress someone, take ‘em here. However, if like your intrepid reviewer, you stroll in wearing combats, Doc Martens...”

The Trader, Shoreditch (Bar)
“Surprisingly pleasant inside, despite its grotty exterior, Trader’s is a large pub, running from Monday to Friday only and mainly entertaining the locals and office workers in the Old Street area. Not...”

McLoughlin's (closed), Shoreditch (Bar)
“I feel that I can safely ridicule McLoughlin’s as judging from the clientele, I don’t think anyone will be surfing the net to read the review. Bad, bad, bad – McLoughlin’s is drab, depressing, quiet...”

The White Lion (closed), Shoreditch (Bar)
“A local pub for local people? OK, it’s not quite in the League of Gentlemen standard but the White Lion certainly has the feel of a place where not many outsiders go for a swift half. Located on...”

The Masque Haunt, Shoreditch (Bar)
“Forgive the slightly pretentious, Edgar Allen Poe- name but the Masque Haunt is one of the better offspring of the chain bar revolution in London. Another son of JD Wetherspoon’s – they do what they...”

Picture of The Peasant, Angel & Islington, London

The Peasant, Angel & Islington (Bar / Restaurant)
“Striding into The Peasant is not for the faint-hearted (or underdressed). Situated on St. John’s Street, no more than five minutes from Clerkenwell and Angel, The Peasant is a beautifully laid-out establishment...”

Gaudi, Clerkenwell (Bar / Restaurant)
“As with many things in life there is something to be said for being in the right place at the right time and with Clerkenwell restaurant, Gaudi, it certainly boils down to location, location, location. Situated...”

The Eagle, City of London (Bar)
“Walking into The Eagle in itself brings a good feeling to the thirsty (and often hungry) punters of Farringdon. A spacious wooden pub with delicious cooking aromas wafting from behind the bar – why, it...”

Picture of Cafe Kick, City of London, London

Cafe Kick, City of London (Bar)
“For those of you with a taste for the Latin side of life, then you can’t do much worse than the small – yet perfectly formed – Cafe Kick in Exmouth Market. This intimate place has gone for the European...”

Picture of Walkabout (closed), Shepherds Bush, London

Walkabout (closed), Shepherds Bush (Bar / Club)
“The Walkabout in Shepherds Bush – what can you say? By the end of the night it always looks likes a field hospital from the First World War…but it looks like that for a reason. The reason? Because it’s...”
Declan McVeigh, Fluid London reviewer 24 Oct 02}

Vesbar (closed), Shepherds Bush (Bar)
“Vesbar is a nicely laid-out, airy bar/restaurant not more than five minutes walk from Shepherds Bush tube station and even closer to Goldhawk Road. Their food menu is adventurous but affordable, with...”
