Recent Fluid reviews for bars & restaurants in London

Nova Chelsea (Map)

“If someone invited you downstairs to a basement club you’d probably prepare yourself for darkness, dinge and deafening music. Thankfully, Nova manages to shake off that stereotype and introduces a whole...” More
Deborah James, Fluid London reviewer

Picture of The Waterside, Fulham, London

The Waterside, Fulham (Bar / Restaurant)
“For a new venue recently opened in the modern Imperial Wharf, The Riverside is suitably refined. Situated on the Thames, the 'pub' has some of the best river views in London and with an extensive alfresco...”
Paul Caffell, Fluid London reviewer 03 Oct 06}

Dignity, Finchley (Bar)
“The working class quality of Finchley Central noticeably contrasts to neighbouring Highgate, and within its smattering of pubs, shops and restaurants, the aptly named Dignity – appears to be the one down...”

Picture of Tayyabs, Whitechapel & Wapping, London

Tayyabs, Whitechapel & Wapping (Restaurant)
“It’s a Tuesday night, 7pm, and already a snaking queue has formed down the murky Whitechapel street. A hubbub of hungry chattering revellers clutching bottles of wine are eager to get into the newly refurnished...”
Deborah James, Fluid London reviewer 19 Sep 06}

The Alwyne Castle, Angel & Islington (Bar)
“Searching for a special place to take a date? Look no further. The Alwyne looks like a mini castle from the outside and is quite modern and arty on the inside, with its stripy rugs, stained glass panelling...”

Picture of Murphis Karaoke Bar & Restaurant, City of London, London

Murphis Karaoke Bar & Restaurant, City of London (Bar / Restaurant / Club)
“From private K-TV rooms in China where skateboarders crooned Taiwanese love ballads to the Dun A Ri bar in Kings’ Cross where belting out Summer of ’69 with a fat middle aged chav felt like the right thing...”

Picture of Fish! Restaurant, London Bridge & Bermondsey, London

Fish! Restaurant, London Bridge & Bermondsey (Restaurant)
“Borough Market is London’s alternative zoo: feeding time lasts ALL day and the exhibits are all jam-packed with bizarre and interesting animals that, for the right price, can actually be eaten. It’s the...”
Christian Rose-Day, Fluid London reviewer 02 Sep 06}

Picture of O2 Academy Islington, Angel & Islington, London

O2 Academy Islington, Angel & Islington (Bar / Club)
“Sitting on beer crates, balancing a gin and tonic on my knee while trying to light a cigarette I do not feel very VIP. Being friends with the band grants us access backstage at Carling Academy Islington...”

Picture of King Edward VII, Stratford, London

King Edward VII, Stratford (Bar / Restaurant)
“Dust off the files marked ‘English history’ from your classroom memories. Search for Edward VII. Realise you never paid attention and, therefore, know nothing. Hence, for your benefit, here is a quick...”
Christian Rose-Day, Fluid London reviewer 23 Aug 06}

The Angel Inn, Crouch End (Bar)
“The Angel Inn is an old mans boozer with a modern twist (and air conditioning). It’s a lovely little pub with its cosy dark wood interiors, old lamps, fairy lights and roaring open fires, making it especially...”
Claire Henderson, Fluid London reviewer 22 Aug 06}

Picture of Island Queen, Angel & Islington, London

Island Queen, Angel & Islington (Bar)
“When you stumble upon the Island Queen you should sober up enough to appreciate its beauty. It was built in 1885 and is now a listed building. It has a multi-windowed Victorian frontage that allows natural...”
Claire Henderson, Fluid London reviewer 10 Aug 06}

Blue Junction, Wimbledon (Bar / Restaurant)
“SM4? Have we suddenly adopted a new postcode system in the capital? Since when has ‘SM’ been a London address? Perhaps Morden is actually further out than the tube map might have us believe - like in France...”
Christian Rose-Day, Fluid London reviewer 08 Aug 06}

Picture of The Easton, Clerkenwell, London

The Easton, Clerkenwell (Bar / Restaurant)
“It’s always a joy to discover a pub that doubles as the ideal summer, and winter spot. The Easton, steps from Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell, does just this. I sit with an icy white wine spritzer, (add...”
chloe mccloskey, Fluid London reviewer 07 Aug 06}

Picture of The Riverside, Vauxhall & Oval, London

The Riverside, Vauxhall & Oval (Bar)
“As any typical Special Agent working week goes, yours has been a real humdinger. Being forced to hurry back to Mi6 headquarters from [classifed material] this morning, due to unforeseen complications during...”
Christian Rose-Day, Fluid London reviewer 03 Aug 06}

Picture of Bertie's Bar, Kensington, London

Bertie's Bar, Kensington (Bar / Hotel)
“Bertie’s bar is the newly refurbished bar in the Royal Garden Hotel on High Street Kensington. Any airs of pretentiousness can be left at the door of the five star hotel - this place may look posh with...”
Claire Henderson, Fluid London reviewer 01 Aug 06}

Picture of Rumi Lounge, Chelsea, London

Rumi Lounge, Chelsea (Bar / Club)
“Early birds on a Saturday night will experience the sensuous music of Soul singer Brace, who breezes his way through classics ranging from faves such as ‘My Girl’ to covers of ‘80s pop songs. The music...”
Clemmy Manzo, Fluid London reviewer 24 Jul 06}

Picture of The Ranelagh, Wood Green & Palmers Green, London

The Ranelagh, Wood Green & Palmers Green (Bar)
“A five minute walk from Bounds Green tube station, The Ranelagh pub is the perfect place to enjoy a drink out in the sun. Its garden is big enough to seat 140 people, and includes a raised decking complete...”
Danny Brogan, Fluid London reviewer 12 Jul 06}

Picture of The Sun & Doves, Peckham & Camberwell, London

The Sun & Doves, Peckham & Camberwell (Bar / Restaurant)
“Sod football. We weren’t going to win it anyway since our flag isn’t 3 vertical, coloured stripes – it seems that’s all you need to get your team to the final these days. That and a few adjudicators from...”
Christian Rose-Day, Fluid London reviewer 10 Jul 06}

Picture of Roebuck, Hampstead, London

Roebuck, Hampstead (Bar)
“Can coziness gleam? If it can, the Roebuck has patented the notion. What a cool bar. Mastering the art of elegant grunge, this Hampstead pub looks like a posh little joint from the outside, yet upon entrance...”
chloe mccloskey, Fluid London reviewer 03 Jul 06}

Picture of The Princess of Shoreditch, Shoreditch, London

The Princess of Shoreditch, Shoreditch (Bar / Restaurant)
“The Princess is a gastropub that slots nicely into London’s trendy Old Street. The pub is a nice little boozer which is trendy and upmarket without being pretentious. For food, follow the spiral staircase...”
