Recent Fluid reviews for bars & restaurants in London

De Hems West End (Map)

“Down a small side street linking Shaftesbury Avenue to Gerrard Street in China Town, De Hems is unsurprisingly, if you know any, Dutch. It was apparently taken over by a Dutch sailor in the early part...” More
Paul Caffell, Fluid London reviewer

De Hems
Picture of The Plough, Barnes & Sheen, London

The Plough, Barnes & Sheen (Bar / Restaurant / Hotel)
“A lovely traditional pub, The Plough Inn is tucked away in amongst the residential area of East Sheen. With Richmond park a stones throw away it's a perfect pub to pop in after a day of fresh air. That's...”

Picture of The Lamb & Flag, West End, London

The Lamb & Flag, West End (Bar)
“The Lamb and Flag has been hidden down Rose Street for over 300 years, and as you come in for a drink, you get the impression not much has changed. Inside, the main bar area is quite small, but there's...”
Duncan Welch, Fluid London reviewer 31 Aug 03}

Picture of Eight Over Eight, Chelsea, London

Eight Over Eight, Chelsea (Bar)
“This is a brand new venture with class. A bar and restaurant with an oriental theme, Eight Over Eight is the epitome of style with its glass frontage and dark wooden bar, complete with trendy suspended...”

Picture of The Cinnamon Club  Bar, Westminster, London

The Cinnamon Club Bar, Westminster (Bar)
“Classy drinking in Westminster - welcome to the Cinnamon Club Bar. Without insider knowledge you'd never know that this, one of London's finest private cocktail bars, was situated inside the Old Westminster...”
Steve Molesworth, Fluid London reviewer 18 Jul 03}

The Black Horse, Fitzrovia (Bar)
“Lively, festive, a bit mad, but not manic, this is the perfect spot to instill some cozy Christmas cheer. Slighlty dodgey looking on the outside, we were suitably impressed with what greeted us within:...”

Picture of The Ten Bells, City of London, London

The Ten Bells, City of London (Bar)
“I was told this is the pub that Jack the Ripper used to frequent and the inside certainly looks like it could date from that era, Victorian tiling fills half of the walls and the other half is just painted...”
Steve Molesworth, Fluid London reviewer 24 Jun 03}

The Three Kings, Clerkenwell (Bar)
“The Three Kings has more personality in its ladies loos than all those icy-cool ultra-expensive cocktail bars have in their classic brown leather sofas. Somewhere between a theme bar and an old man...”
Hannah Longbottom, Fluid London reviewer 11 May 03}

Picture of The Barley Mow, Shoreditch, London

The Barley Mow, Shoreditch (Bar)
“I didn't stay in The Barley Mow long enough to fully take in the atmosphere. It was packed, which you'd think would be a good sign, but we couldn't even get to the bar. From the outside it looked drab...”
Kimberly Dabbs, Fluid London reviewer 19 Mar 03}

Picture of Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes, Shoreditch, London

Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes, Shoreditch (Bar / Club)
“Dreambagsjaguarshoes is more like a Hoxton college common room than a trendy bar. The front is (you’d never guess) like a shop front. The interior seems to simply have been ripped off to reveal some...”
Hannah Longbottom, Fluid London reviewer 18 Mar 03}

Artillery Arms, Shoreditch (Bar)
“Artillery Arms was full of suits. We’re not saying this is a bad thing but its definitely an after work watering hole. There is adequate seating, but generally quite a small bar. The food menu is...”
Hannah Longbottom, Fluid London reviewer 11 Mar 03}

Picture of The Latchmere, Battersea, London

The Latchmere, Battersea (Bar)
“Admittedly, I’ve never been a huge supporter of the traditional pub. Perhaps it’s the harsh overhead lighting. Or the outdated keno machine collecting dust in the corner. Or maybe it’s the leather-faced...”
Chris Mudry, Fluid London reviewer 06 Mar 03}

The Royal Oak, Borough & Southwark (Bar)
“I like the kind of pub that you really have to look for. If nothing else, you feel like you deserve a drink by the time you’ve found it. Turn right at the back of beyond and you’ll find the Royal Oak....”
Les Dunn, Fluid London reviewer 25 Feb 03}

Picture of The George Inn Yard, London Bridge & Bermondsey, London

The George Inn Yard, London Bridge & Bermondsey (Bar)
“Now call me narrow minded, but I don’t associate the National Trust with having a good time. Shuffling around mouldy old houses once owned by capitalist exploiters, yes. So I wasn’t brimming over with...”
Les Dunn, Fluid London reviewer 25 Feb 03}

Picture of Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, City of London, London

Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, City of London (Bar)
“The phrase ‘Ye Olde’ prefixing a business name in England usually indicates a less savoury kind of cheesiness, designed to pull in U.S. tourists before presenting them with an ersatz mockery of the past,...”
Les Dunn, Fluid London reviewer 17 Feb 03}

The Golden Eagle, Marylebone (Bar)
“Hearing a muffled, slightly eerie piano sing-along emanating from within as a light mist swirled about us in Hammer Horror fashion, my old friend Allan and I exchanged uneasy glances, but felt compelled...”
Les Dunn, Fluid London reviewer 17 Feb 03}

Picture of Milk & Honey, Soho, London

Milk & Honey, Soho (Bar)
“Rule number one: you have to book ahead, no matter who you are. This ensures a totally democratic door policy in which celebrity carries no weight, and it also prevents overcrowding. The other rules set...”
Paul Caffell, Fluid London reviewer 17 Feb 03}

Picture of The Lamb, City of London, London

The Lamb, City of London (Bar)
“What exactly is it that makes a good English pub? This question seemed crucial as my drinking companion and I stood supping at the bar in The Lamb. It’s a Young’s pub, so sells their formidable selection...”
Les Dunn, Fluid London reviewer 17 Feb 03}

The Kings Head Theatre Pub, Angel & Islington (Bar)
“What can you say? Principally The Kings Head Theatre Pub is as old fashioned as you can get. Years must have gone by since it was last done up properly, but somehow it seems to work the way it is meant...”
Kimberly Dabbs, Fluid London reviewer 07 Feb 03}

Picture of The Bull, Angel & Islington, London

The Bull, Angel & Islington (Bar)
“Slap bang in the middle of Upper street, The Bull has a good set up and a nice location. Rather plain and formulaic downstairs, the upstairs offers chopping block style tables, a big mirror looking down...”
