“I can't say much about this place except it is a club (or should I say 'club') for the sake of a club. It's like dancing in someone's garage, to sh*t music and a sh*t sound system. What's more, you have to pay £12 (!!) to dance in this sh*t garage. Their smoke machine would be more effective if I stood at one end of the place and blew out a pathetic puff from a ciggie (I don't smoke, but even nothing would be more effective). The place is full of bad-looking people (I'm sorry to all the regulars!) who look wasted, desperate, and obviously go there every weekend. Either that, or the place is full of bemused-looking people wondering how the fu*k they ended up there (I'm this category, ta). Don't waste your money. Go somewhere bigger, better, and just a whole lot more credible than this.”

“On entrance, Red Cube looked to be an exclusive, elite type of place, mysterious and promising to give excitement. The bouncer on the door asked how many there was in my party, then nodded us through (as if it would have made any difference to three pretty young things such as myself and my friends, haha!). I was quite excited about what would be on the inside, but that went out the window when I had to pay £10 (give me a BREAK!!), only to find myself walking into the dingiest (word?...) place I've ever been in. The music was crap, and the clientele consisted of boring-looking snobs and pervy businessmen - it only took two minutes to have my arse felt by one, oh yes. I can't say much else about the place except it felt like being in some underground strip-club with practically no lighting, and slightly less nakedness. My advice? Just don't!”

Jerusalem, Fitzrovia (Bar / Restaurant)
“Nice decor, music goes a bit ghetto and you get sick of shouting at your friends, but unbelievable staff. Girl on the door made me pay to get in at 8:02, when it's free before 8, even though I'd set up a guestlist and was guaranteeing loads of business for them. Then the bar staff refused to serve food since they just "got a big group in". Shouldn't a restaurant be able to handle their reservations? Finally, the girl on the door tried to charge me again since I was forced to go outside for food. The bouncer was the only decent worker in the place - you don't hear that too often. Too many people on power trips, with no regard for customer service or repeat business. I speak for a group of 20 friends who will never be going there again.”

Dog & Bull, Sutton & Croydon (Bar)
“Splendid traditional market pub serving the best pint of Youngs south of Wandsworth. Welcoming and friendly. Will be dismissed as an "old man's pub" by the bacardi breezer swilling cretins so uniquely abundant in Croydon but has more character in one well trodden floor board than the legion of sterile, overlit, overpriced, blonde wooded, travelodge-like Croydon chain pubs put together. If in the area also try the Royal Standard down the road under the flyover. Truly outstanding Fullers beers in this tremendous boozer. There really are some delights in Croydon for the beer drinker - but they are very well hidden.”

Elderfield, Hackney (Bar)
“An oasis, a sanctuary, blessed relief. When in E5, go to the Eclipse for a good pint and some peace. The best non-canal side pub in E5. The area is changing but it's slow going and the Eclipse is way ahead of its time. Instead of turning all the existing Hackney pubs into flats, developers could learn alot from the Eclipse.”

“While I know this is a very famous pub in the heart of the city - I have to say I think it is overrated. Their infamous bloody mary left something to be desired. All in all I am not sure what all the buzz is about...”

“I can't count how many times I have been now...and it NEVER fails to please me or anyone I have recommended it to....and I am not easily pleased! I have not found a better alternative place for boozy, great value lunches with friends and never seem to find anywhere that has better atmosphere. The afternoon jazz makes it that bit special and the house wine is very cheap and very drinkable. The menu kind of caters for everyone, and the staff are lovely too....”

Andrew Edmunds, Soho (Bar / Restaurant)
“You'd be forgiven for walking right past this unobtrusive small restaurant. Menu changes regularly to offer a range of British classics. Food is well-priced and the winelist has taken taste into account. Very intimate atmosphere (candles on tables, wooden walls, no music or mobile phones) make this the ideal place for that romantic date...”

Moro, Clerkenwell (Bar / Restaurant)
“Terrible service from the management and staff on two occasions. They were rude and miserable to 5 of us (guests visiting London included) when we ordered a second cab due to rain after spending £200 on a meal last night. And this was after they were paid an automatic add-on 12.5% service charge. This is the second time in the same year where previously they provided extremely rude service to 15 of us. I would not recommend you bringing any of your friends and family to this place.”

Herbal Club & Bar, Shoreditch (Bar)
“I have been to this club several times and on each occasion I have been suprised by how nice the crowd are... the staff on the door and behind the bar. The music is different but great on each occasion and I have invited many friends along with me and all have agreed that this is by far the best club in East London. Highly reccomended.”

“I have visited this club on several occasions and everytime I have been there I have been suprised by the friendliness of the staff, doorpeople and other visitors. The music is consistent and the clarity very good. I reccomend this club to anyone who really enjoys a great night out with all there friends. One of the best!!!!!”

The Famous Cock Tavern, Angel & Islington (Bar)
“Top notch, excellent for meeting friends before going to a club or the theatre for the night, beig just outside the station, but also does cheap bottles of wine, for a pub (my girlfriend and I could not believe that we got a whole bottle for the price of two glasses). The food came quickly and was excellent. The members of staff were unusually polite and friendly for this part of London, however becomevery strict when upholding the Licensing Act, which I suppose must be a good thing. The staff did though did reccomend other places for us to drink in after they had stopped serving. A nice place and would definately go there again.”
