The Ship Tavern 12 Gate Street, Holborn, London, WC2A 3HP (Map)

The best pub in Holborn by a mile! A real jem of a place. Tucked behind Holborn tube station the Ship Tavern was like a breath of fresh air after a hard slog at the office. I also went there for lunch... More Atmosphere: Value: Quality:

“Just like to put Ron straight. At Thirst we never over fill the venue and suggesting we do implies we break the law and put our customers safety at risk. Thirst does not have fights. To busy and to loud seems to suggest Ron may in fact be too old. Stay in the suburbs and put your feet up! Look forward to seeing all our happy customers soon. Al Thompson”

The Church, Brixton (Bar / Club)
“The church is a really horrible place and I'd highly recommend that you stay away. I went with a group of friends to say goodbye to a friend who was returning to Australia and we've never had a worse afternoon out - ever. The drinks system when you can only buy three cans at once, which you then have to carry round in a plastic bag, is ridiculous. The venue was filthy and hard to get to. The music was rubbish. The 'entertainment' was a scrubby old stripper who got so graphic we were all embarrassed and a fat compère shouting 'we want tits' on stage. The crowd is made up of a load of louts trying to grope you and vomiting over themselves. If you view this kind of thing as good unpretentious fun and a real laugh then by all means go - if you want anything more from your afternoon than the lowest, nastiest, misogynistic setup imaginable, then stay the hell away.”

“I know I'm going to get shouted down like poor Williams further down the page, but here goes anyway. On the occasion that I went to the Church, there were some medics from St Guy's there raising some cash for the hospital. They got up on the stage and were generally having a good time, joining in the drinking games and raising money for a good cause. One of the female medics was asked to remove her top by the compère, and when she refused she was loudly booed by the whole crowd. That's right, they booed a doctor who was raising money for charity because she refused to flash them. So if spending time with the fine specimens of humanity who made up the crowd sounds good to you then by all means go, but don't say you weren't warned.”

“What can I say? We first encountered this place more than 15 years ago. We were looking for some decent food at a reasonable price. A glance at the menu promised both and we weren't disappointed! From smoked salmon in a cheesy cream sauce over pasta to trota Cleopatra and heaven knows what else over three or four visits in '91, plus a repeat visit in '97, the thought of this place, even with its somewhat quirky atmosphere, still makes me salivate in anticipation!”

“Arrived at Sunday afternoon thinking food finished, oh no. What a delightful meal we had. Poached smoked haddock, spinach with garlic and chillies, topped off with a boiled egg, truly tasty. Me lady had cous cous with grilled aubergine, that too was a taste sensation. A couple of Leffe's later ding dong. I can't fault this place.”

Centro, City of London (Bar / Club)
“Went there last night (24/2/2006). Quite nice inside but pretty dead about 9pm. Draft beer is available but it's only Kronenberg. £3.30 is just about palatable. But charging £5.50 for a bicardi and coke is ridiculous. Tasted like a single as well. The place we were at before we got there was charging £2.50 for A DOUBLE! Maybe it picks up later but i wont be going back until they price their drinks sensibly (which will never happen unfortunately).”

Lowlander, West End (Bar)
“A cosy Dutch / Belgium Bar / Cafe with a great atmosphere. The staff are kind and understanding of the mildly inebriated. Their beer menu has a good range with a drink for everyone’s tastes, and though it's not the most extensive in the area. You'd probably pass out long before you could work your way through it (especially if you start with a bottle Scaldis). The food is also top notch; I’d definitely recommend a side order of the double Dutch fries. There is a major down side though; there's a waiter service. This means you aren't buying drinks individually but putting drinks on a tab all night. So watch your orders or, despite the prices being quite reasonable, you will find your bank balance in a sorry state in the morning.”

“The bar staff here need to learn manners. A group of us went along for a few quiet drinks after work only to be abused by unhappy staff who have serious attitude problems. Colourful language was used by the staff which was completetly out of order. Until management realise their staff need to lessons in hospitality I would steer clear of this place!”

“Definitely not a place for the more classy, fussy type, it looks like a hole in the wall and most of the regulars are lucky if they still have all their teeth. But the snakebite's extremely good and the people are v. friendly. I love it! Great bands, A nice dog up on the roof and has been known to have a free barbeque in the summer. FREE!”

The Dome, Kentish Town (Bar / Club)
“If you're fourteen, you'll love it. There's a safe bouncer downstairs who'll let you sneak in a six pack of strongbow which you can consume daintily in the bogs. It's a complete shithole, all the girls are off their faces and wearing nothing but a bra and fishnets. If you're pissed, you'll enjoy the music. Not much chance of a pull, and you're more than likely to bump into someone who you didn't want to see. Now and again they'll play a good punk tune. It doesnt usually get more diverse than sometihng like TimeBomb by Rancid though. You'll embarrass yourself by getting really drunk and deciding you actually DO like that Linkin park song afterall. People will give you their fags. Stuff gets nicked. I'm going there tomorrow night”

The Stage Door, Waterloo (Bar)
“This is an excellent little boozer, conveniently situated five minutes walk from Waterloo station and the Southbank. Although the pub has had a 'fashionable' makeover in the last year, the staff are very friendly and down to earth, not patronising and disdaining like the staff in some of the refurbished pubs closeby. It has an wonderful 'local' atomsphere where visitors/Southbank workers are made to feel extremely welcome (especially if you like Cricket and Rugby). There are also free events happening at the Stage Door at weekends such as open-mike nights, jamming sessions and so on. It's one of those pubs you can visit after work on a Friday night and then stagger up to Waterloo and scoff a Burger King for the long train journey home.”

The Calf, Clapham (Bar)
“This is the worst pub in Clapham. Though a good place to go if you want to save money as it takes an age to get served. Was there last week and it took 15 minutes to get served. The food is awful as well. Over priced and takes ages to come. I guess its made its name from somewhere but can't believe why people kepp going there.”

“Beautiful place, but less than poor cooking skills make for average food at a more than average price. Cocktails also punchy on the price front. Shame - its the kind of place you really want to fall in love with when you walk in the door. I just felt all round deflated. Probably best to pop in for a coffee just so you can enjoy the venue - but spend the serious money elsewhere”

Union, Marylebone (Bar / Restaurant)
“Best place to spend your weekday evenings around Baker Street if you're not ready to a] venture out to a club or b] your plan is to eat first, and then party - Union is modern enough to have a good beer & premium spirit selection and serves up solid gastro pub style food. Bar staff are friendly, lively and fun. ”

The Herbert Chapman, Holloway (Bar)
“Surprisingly pleasant pub on the dodgy old holloway road. Very clean, comfy seating, the usual fireplace and big screen sports TV - but best of all well trained staff with a wicked sense of humour - which is why the bar stools are the most coveted seats in the house. The new food menu actually delivers, and sizeable portions of classic british dishes keep bums on sofas and spirits high.”

The Longford, Hampton & Teddington (Bar)
“Seems to me this place is trying to be too many things to too many people. There's the posh gastro pub - feel with fancy red wine displays, back-lit italian espresso machine & ornamental mirrors; wacky back bar fish tanks & staff with the occasional 'i'm mad, me' outfits; and multi-coloured disco lights on a wall full with abstract art pieces. It's more confusing than comfortable at first but its also a huge place with an atrium in the back area bringing lots of light into the dining area next to the well-run open plan kitchen. Lots of potential, the imminent refurb should give it the attention it deserves.”

The Oakhill, Bromley (Bar)
“definitely the proverbial oasis in the beckenham decent pub desert. looks lovely, good layout of seating around the bar so even when its busy you can have some privacy. superb sunday roasts and sizeable 'oakhill-style' sandwiches keep bringing back customers for more every weekend. fireplaces give the rooms a welcoming warmth in winter but the real hit is their gorgeous back garden in late spring/early summer - what better way to enjoy your sunday lunch - or BBQ - than sharing a wooden table and a drink with your friends in the sun, surrounded by an abundance of colourful flowers and greenery listening to water slowly spilling from a fountain into their little pond? see you there.”
