Fakhreldine (closed), Mayfair (Bar / Restaurant)
Best for: Quiet romantic liaisons, Lebanese set menus Great: Mayfair location on Piccadilly, sexy décor. It has occurred to me that deciding upon a restaurant to...”

Tsuru Sushi, City of London (Restaurant)
“On the fringe of the city, where corporate money and chain style restaurants sit opposing the trendy and avant-garde bars and restaurants of Shoreditch and Old Street, is a new sushi eatery called Tsuru....”

St James Restaurant and Bar, Crouch End (Bar / Restaurant)
“Recently, I caught myself perusing the property section of a London newspaper (an affliction developed from years of being exposed to Kirsty Allsop and Sarah Beany, among others), and scoffed when reading...”

“Entertainment has always been a crucial part of the dining experience, from minstrels to string quartets; belly dancers to pianists. True, half naked women wearing bells or a cliched classic recital may...”

The Loose Box, Westminster (Bar / Restaurant)
“For a venue that is obviously very proud of its heritage, the Loose Box is surprisingly modern inside, with a minimal feel that hints towards history rather than making it the bar's focus. Yet somehow,...”

“The idea of riverside dining fills me with a certain kind of provincial joy; a meal enjoyed in the reflection of glistening waters, followed by an afternoon walk along a promenade whilst boat racers train...”

Hush, Mayfair (Bar / Restaurant)
“Tourists in London are often given lots of advice on how to get the best out the fair city; buy on oyster card; take a tour bus; boat down the river Thames. The truth of the matter is that no-one will...”

The Slug & Lettuce, Waterloo (Bar)
“I certainly enjoy a bargain and have been known to get feverish during the sales. I love 50% off. I've been know to cut and collect vouchers like a magpie hoarding shiny finds. I've recently discovered...”

The Pear Tree, Hammersmith (Bar)
“First impressions count for a great deal. They can mean the difference between being perceived as welcoming or rude; friendly or frightening; charming or vulgar. They count for a lot and a person or place...”

Rhodes Twenty Four (closed), City of London (Bar / Restaurant)
“I remember watching Gary Rhodes on TV when I was young. Very young. Back in the day when there were only 4 channels, Sky was for the very rich or the very very poor and no-one had ever heard the word 'freeview'....”

Fox & Anchor, Clerkenwell (Bar)
“Venturing into the city for a bite to eat isn't something that excites me. Sitting down to dinner at a time when, seemingly, all of London's pinstriped office workers are intent on getting pissed, regardless...”

“As a person who enjoys eating out, I often find myself subject to the fear of succumbing to the modern disease that is being overweight. 'Fat' has connotations of being jolly and playful and living life...”

The Punch Tavern, City of London (Bar / Restaurant)
“As a child I found Punch and Judy shows to be predictable, behind the times and profoundly unsatisfying. In spite of this, I had high hopes for a pub named after the show's brutish protagonist. Sadly,...”

Loved

"Had the best Taglioni Salmone, lovely wine with it, great family friendly atmosphere. Free glass of Prosecco on arrival because it was Father’s Day. Excellent pricing and we were fitted in seamlessly despite..." Which venue is this?

Hated

"Girls were rude demanding tips for a poor show. If this is the best club London has to offer don't bother going anywhere else in the city." Which venue is this?
