Recent Fluid reviews for bars & restaurants in London

Coquine Kensington (Map)

“There are many upmarket bars, pubs and restaurants to visit on the Old Brompton Road, but none appear to have the panache or style of new kid on the block, Coquine. Designed by the famous and award...” More

The Troubadour, Kensington (Bar / Restaurant)
“The Troubadour’s owners - charming Susie & husband - are a little bit Branson. They’re not content with offering just a singular type of service. Their aims are high, fingers-in-all-pies high, and the...”

The Waterway Bar & Restaurant, Maida Vale & St Johns Wood (Bar / Restaurant)
“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...”

Corrigan's Mayfair by Richard Corrigan, Mayfair (Restaurant)
“The two months of fallow airtime between Masterchef series are always a difficult time, and we all have different ways of dulling the ache. My girlfriend (henceforth known as Bea – something inside me...”
Ben Brill, Fluid London reviewer 07 Jun 10}

Bella Vista, Blackheath & Eltham (Restaurant)
“Remember when Gordon Ramsey toured the UK to find the best local restaurant – taking in regional cuisines like Italian, Chinese and Indian – for the F Word last year? I highly doubt he personally visited...”
Ruth Emery, Fluid London reviewer 04 Jun 10}

Picture of Dion, City of London, London

Dion, City of London (Bar / Restaurant)
“Wine bars in the City should know what they are about: plenty of hardwood veneer on the furniture, glass and gleaming chrome for the verticals; mildly braying punters, full of swagger and snorted energy;...”
David Derby, Fluid London reviewer 02 Jun 10}

Picture of Garden Bar and Grill, Notting Hill, London

Garden Bar and Grill, Notting Hill (Bar / Restaurant)
“The crowd in the bustling Garden Bar and Grill makes me feel youthful. I can tell I'm going to like this place. At 30, I'm one of the youngest, surrounded by suited folk in their early 30s and beyond,...”

Silk Restaurant, Soho (Bar / Restaurant / Hotel)
“Saturday night in Soho – it’s one of a kind. Young, hip Londoners rub shoulders with thickly made-up old drag queens. Tourists gaze shyly into lurid red-lit sex shops, and seasoned boozers spill out defiantly...”
Anastasia Hancock, Fluid London reviewer 27 May 10}

Picture of Moomba Kitchen & Bar, Putney, London

Moomba Kitchen & Bar, Putney (Bar / Restaurant)
“Last week I had two very disparate experiences. The first was at Moomba (more on that in a moment); the second was at a bar in Highgate that has a reputation for being cool. I'm not the sort of person...”
Kate Williams, Fluid London reviewer 18 May 10}

Picture of The Distillers, Hammersmith, London

The Distillers, Hammersmith (Bar)
“We are all taught to find our niche; play to our strengths and don’t try to be something we’re not. If you’re a dour Scotsman with the likeability factor of a wasp, maybe don’t run for Prime Minister....”
Sophie Marie Atkinson, Fluid London reviewer 18 May 10}

Picture of The Bedford, Balham, London

The Bedford, Balham (Bar)
“If you ask for an apple you get something spherical in shape, either green or red in colour and sweet in taste. If you ask for a car you get something that gets you from A to B, If you ask for a window...”
Rebecca Brett, Fluid London reviewer 14 May 10}

Picture of Canteen, City of London, London

Canteen, City of London (Restaurant)
“Breaking up is never easy, but it’s a darned sight easier when you can indulge your misery in good food and kindly company. Cue my role as the perfect friend and my task to find comforting cuisine fit...”
Laura Collins, Fluid London reviewer 13 May 10}

Picture of Kensington Square Kitchen, Kensington, London

Kensington Square Kitchen, Kensington (Restaurant)
“Visiting the Kensington Square Kitchen was my first assignment for Fluid, and I wanted to make the most of this opportunity. Its website is detailed, and what I read impressed me. It sounds like the perfect...”
Anthony Lord, Fluid London reviewer 13 May 10}

Picture of The Loose Box, Westminster, London

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,...”
Paul Wells, Fluid London reviewer 12 May 10}

Picture of Vortex Jazz Club, Dalston, London

Vortex Jazz Club, Dalston (Bar / Club)
“Passing a bizarre row of structures akin to the seaside huts that sell boat trips and offer parasols and deck chair for hire, we come across a slick new glass-fronted building and peer inside. Reggae music...”

Picture of The Draft House Westbridge, Battersea, London

The Draft House Westbridge, Battersea (Bar / Restaurant)
“"It's got a lot of classic Guinness ads on the wall" "Yeah, but how would you describe it?" "Nu cool" "Nu cool? My God man, we are past it. Over the hill. Finished. The kids won't understand a word." And...”
The Duke, Fluid London reviewer 09 May 10}

Picture of The Old White Bear, Hampstead, London

The Old White Bear, Hampstead (Bar)
“It’s the sort of place the culinary geeks on Masterchef might aspire to open, although this is not necessarily a bad thing. Besides ‘Can you cook?’ - which is usually followed by the highlight of the...”
Ruth Emery, Fluid London reviewer 07 May 10}

Picture of Momo, Mayfair, London

Momo, Mayfair (Bar / Restaurant)
“Whilst it’s true many things get worse with time - general flexibility, the Saw movie franchise, Hobnobs - there are those rare exceptions that defy the odds and actually improve with age: fine wine, George...”
Faye Armstrong, Fluid London reviewer 06 May 10}

Picture of Leon, Soho, London

Leon, Soho (Restaurant)
“Looks can be deceiving and Leon certainly falls into this category. The small counter of the Carnaby Street branch is squashed between an O’Neill’s and a clothes shop and looks, well, like a fast food...”
Naheen Madarbakus, Fluid London reviewer 06 May 10}

Picture of Canteen, Waterloo, London

Canteen, Waterloo (Restaurant)
“It is sheer gargantuan in size, and because of this, London is an easy city to get lost in. It’s packed with restaurants selling food hailing from far flung places through to English classics, ranging...”
