Recent Fluid reviews for bars & restaurants in London

The Silver Sturgeon City of London (Map)

“The loud, young Americans stood to left on the escalator: you’re great. The chancer pigeon striding among the many feet of Embankment station just to peck a grain of dirt: we love you. The grey-on-grey,...” More

Banyan On The Thames, Battersea (Restaurant / Hotel)
“A hotel restaurant invariably has to try twice as hard as a regular restaurant. The negative associations they conjure up don’t exactly scream ‘atmospheric destination dining’: soulless room dotted with...”
Kelly Parsons, Fluid London reviewer 24 Feb 10}

Picture of The Draft House Northcote, Clapham, London

The Draft House Northcote, Clapham (Bar / Restaurant)
“Remember a time when this was all just fields? In those sepia-tinged days this plot of land belonged to the Pitcher & Piano clan, of whom the people of Northcote were frightened due to the clarion revelry...”
Christian Rose-Day, Fluid London reviewer 24 Feb 10}

Carluccio's, Angel & Islington (Restaurant)
“Emma and Charles Darwin, the Queen and Prince Philip, Richard and Judy, George and Jane Jetson, even Barbie and Ken... all marriages of longevity and unquestionable compatibility. And I’m ‘proposing’ that...”
Faye Armstrong, Fluid London reviewer 24 Feb 10}

Picture of Graphic, Soho, London

Graphic, Soho (Bar)
“I’ve never been sure what kind of person goes out in Central London on a Friday night and hopes for a quiet night out but that person should not go to Graphic. If however, you like smacking good cocktails...”
Julianna Barnaby, Fluid London reviewer 23 Feb 10}

Picture of The Hand & Flower, Fulham, London

The Hand & Flower, Fulham (Bar)
“It's my opinion that gastropubs are McDonalds for the middle classes. Why? Because every single one looks exactly the same as all the others. Where McDonalds trades in lurid primary colours, your average...”
Kate Williams, Fluid London reviewer 23 Feb 10}

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...”
Paul Wells, Fluid London reviewer 18 Feb 10}

Picture of The Tommyfield, Vauxhall & Oval, London

The Tommyfield, Vauxhall & Oval (Bar / Restaurant)
“It seems you can have too much of a good thing. Recently, it’s become fashionable to imply that the gastropub has somehow destroyed the Proper Pub, to suggest that this poster boy for gentrification has...”
Ben Brill, Fluid London reviewer 17 Feb 10}

Picture of Azou Restaurant, Hammersmith, London

Azou Restaurant, Hammersmith (Restaurant)
“There’s something indisputably appealing about its classic Moroccan décor that makes Azou such a warm and authentic place to eat. The rich colours and clean lines which epitomise this now-popular North...”
Jacqui Parr, Fluid London reviewer 16 Feb 10}

Picture of The Winchester, Angel & Islington, London

The Winchester, Angel & Islington (Bar / Restaurant / Club)
“After battling my way through the harsher elements of a chilly and sleet filled February evening to get to north side of town, I was relieved to step into this cosy and relaxed restaurant-cum-pub, and...”
Danielle Aumord, Fluid London reviewer 15 Feb 10}

Picture of Crown and Goose, Camden, London

Crown and Goose, Camden (Bar / Restaurant)
“So, what exactly is a ‘gastropub’? A gastropub, defined in the dictionary (cheers, Wikipedia), is a pub that “concentrates on quality food”. The name ‘gastropub’ is an amalgamation of the words ‘gastronomy’...”
Claire Williams, Fluid London reviewer 09 Feb 10}

Picture of Kitchen Italia, Shepherds Bush, London

Kitchen Italia, Shepherds Bush (Restaurant)
“For hundreds of years, pencils and erasers were two separate items. This meant that, for hundreds of years, every mistake made with the former required people to reach into their pencil cases for the latter,...”
Alistair Martin, Fluid London reviewer 04 Feb 10}

Picture of Wallace & Co, Putney, London

Wallace & Co, Putney (Bar / Restaurant)
“The periodic table of vegetables proudly displayed on the wall, pastel desks and what look like reclaimed school chairs, take you back to junior school at Putney’s newest eatery. All day café/restaurant...”
Kimberley Smith, Fluid London reviewer 03 Feb 10}

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...”
Paul Wells, Fluid London reviewer 03 Feb 10}

Picture of Jewel, West End, London

Jewel, West End (Bar / Restaurant / Club)
“It is a fact universally acknowledged that trying to find an upmarket yet unpretentious bar in Covent Garden is like trying to find hens’ teeth; or Pixie Lott’s sense of individuality. Snooty doormen,...”
Sophie Marie Atkinson, Fluid London reviewer 01 Feb 10}

Picture of Tagine, Balham, London

Tagine, Balham (Restaurant)
“Exiting another Northern Line delay ridden disaster, we arrived sweaty, flustered, but most importantly late and in no mood for pleasantries... Once through the velour drapes at Balham’s Tagine Morrocan...”
The Duke, Fluid London reviewer 29 Jan 10}

Picture of Fifth Floor Bar, Knightsbridge, London

Fifth Floor Bar, Knightsbridge (Bar)
“You don’t have to be Carrie Bradshaw to know that shopping and champagne go together exceedingly well. So it’s a surprise that up until three months ago the Fifth Floor Bar at Harvey Nics didn’t really...”
Farzana Ali, Fluid London reviewer 28 Jan 10}

Getti, Mayfair (Bar / Restaurant)
“Immediately upon receiving this latest review, I emailed my intended dining companion. The reply that pinged back read “Googled the website. Looks like PE.' Ahh, PE; not the latest high concept...”
Kate Williams, Fluid London reviewer 18 Jan 10}

Picture of Caponata & The Forge, Camden, London

Caponata & The Forge, Camden (Bar / Restaurant / Club)
“Italian restaurants are hardly a rare species in London, so it’s particularly difficult to find one serving unique and imaginative cuisine in a convivial setting – here’s where Caponata steps in. Round...”
