Recent Fluid reviews for bars & restaurants in London

The Gyngleboy Notting Hill (Map)

“It’s probably not fair to fault politeness in others, but if they’re polite to a fault, then things can get a little awkward, it’s true. Call me picky, but I prefer a friendly smile and a simple ‘hello’,...” More
Nick Jordan, Fluid London reviewer

The Gyngleboy
Picture of The Flask, Hampstead, London

The Flask, Hampstead (Bar)
“This gentrified working class local sits comfortably in Flask Walk – a small Victorian passage off Hampstead High Street. The Flask is one of Hampstead’s finest traditional English pubs serving a decent...”
joanne bestall, Fluid London reviewer 29 Oct 03}

The Wine Gallery, Chelsea (Bar / Restaurant)
“The Wine Gallery – ‘Just like popping round to a friend’s house for supper, without anyone having to cook’. The rather understated premises, set in the heart of Chelsea, has a diverse reasonably priced...”
jessica gittens, Fluid London reviewer 27 Oct 03}

Dakota, Notting Hill (Bar)
“Located just a few blocks over from Portobello, Dakota is a refreshing escape from the busy weekend market streets and the perfect place to have brunch. It offers indoor and outdoor seating and food as...”

Picture of The Duke of Cambridge, Angel & Islington, London

The Duke of Cambridge, Angel & Islington (Bar / Restaurant)
“With a name like "The Duke of Cambridge", you'd expect a dodgy, dark bar, with elderly gentlemen sipping away at a pint of Ale, glaring at newcomers and talking about "the good old days" or the decline...”
Duncan Welch, Fluid London reviewer 05 Oct 03}

Fettler & Firkin, Paddington (Bar)
“With a a very attractive facade next to a mews the Fettler & Firkin is definitely not a 'destination venue'. But.... if you're in the Paddington area waiting for a train you couldn't go to far wrong popping...”
Paul Caffell, Fluid London reviewer 01 Oct 03}

Picture of The Red Lion, Barnes & Sheen, London

The Red Lion, Barnes & Sheen (Bar / Restaurant)
“Following the trend set by The Sun and The Bridge, The Red Lion is yet another pub in the Barnes vicinity that's had a complete make-over, transforming itself from a staunch honest local into a 'gastro-pub'....”
Paul Caffell, Fluid London reviewer 26 Sep 03}

Penderel's Oak, City of London (Bar)
“The Penderel’s Oak is a Weatherspoon’s pub and is fairly faithful to what you would expect of one. However, setting it apart from the other Weatherspoon’s pubs is that along with its main bar it also...”
Hannah Longbottom, Fluid London reviewer 18 Sep 03}

Picture of De Hems, West End, London

De Hems, West End (Bar)
“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...”
Paul Caffell, Fluid London reviewer 16 Sep 03}

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...”
Paul Caffell, Fluid London reviewer 01 Sep 03}

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 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:...”
Lyndsey Steven, Fluid London reviewer 04 Jul 03}

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}
