Freud 198 Shaftesbury Avenue, West End, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 8JL (Map)

A lovely intimate bar that's great value (cocktails £4-6 as of april 2005) and does simply the *best* long island iced teas in the world, *fact*. I challenge you to talk sense after 3. Mojitos, mules and... More Atmosphere: Value: Quality:

“A charming venue in Herne Hill - good for a long, lazy meal, or tapas menu at the bar with a cold beer. Perhaps the highlight is the the welcoming staff. Sure, it's small and there are some early hitches to iron out. But the staff more than compensate for this by making you feel like they've been looking forward to your visit.”

Island Queen, Angel & Islington (Bar)
“Having lived in Islington for 5 years and now living in Stoke Newington I cant help but feel disappointed with myself for not venturing around the corner to one of the most stunning pubs I have been to in London in the 10 years I have been living here. Coming from Nottingham, a place well known for its historic pubs I'm used to fantastic pubs filled with history , charm and atmosphere. That was until recently when I finally went to visit The Island Queen, Noel Rd Islington. You cant help but be impressed by the magnificent Victorian windows that go as high as the enormous ceilings. The horseshoe bar seems dwarfed by the grand mirrored walls which you cant help but sit and stare at. It was a Sunday and indeed a sunny day and at first we were reluctant to sit inside a bar even though we were really relishing a Sunday lunch to nurse our hangover from the previous night. But once we entered the pub we were smitten. Serving a varied selection of Sunday Roasts, Bar snacks, a great selection of wine and not to mention the fantastic beers on offer (im hoping to try the raspberry leemans on our next visit) The bar staff were friendly and all smiles and who wouldn’t be working in such a beautifully decadent environment. Instead of s Sunday roast I opted for the fish fingers on ciabatta with lime mayo and a round glass of rioja and sat back reading the Sunday papers. The furniture all very inviting and comfortable with the added bonus of the music being subtle and understated. I could ”

Tsunami, Clapham (Bar / Restaurant)
“I went here a few weeks ago for dinner and was pleasantly surprised - having just moved to Clapham recently I hadn't tried any sushi here yet. I had the sashimi platter which was very simple (as it should be) fresh and tasty. The steamed crab dumplings starter is really nice, extremely flavorful. The cocktails were lovely too. All of this made up for somewhat standoffish service, and the table next to us had a very interesting looking flaming scallop dish which I will definately order next time. Overall, I've had trouble finding quality sushi in London and find this place more than satisfactory, I'll definately go again.”

“I wouldn't recommend this pub to my worst enemy. Horribly rude staff with no regard for customers. My friends and I called in close to closing and on the stroke of 11 had our pints confiscated and were practically thrown out the door. Do not go to this pub.”

The Baring, Shoreditch (Bar)
“This great little bar is impossible to find without assistance, in fact we found it by accident with the help of a guy in a local shop. The interior is fab, very funky and fresh with an awesome open fire and lovely soft leather couches. Food is yummy as well. Great place for a drink after work, a drink after playing footy, dinner when you can't be bothered cooking etc.”

“The Bedford provides a consistently good night out. A fact that is evidenced by the large catchment area that it draws its crowd from. Recently visited again for the Banana Cabaret on a Friday eve for my 30th Birthday. Comics were excellent and the Monkeyfunk D.J.s afterwards provided ample entertainment for an up for it crowd. Negative points well if you have to, rather grubby toilets and Bar prices that go up after 11pm. Overall a great night out in South London. Oh almost forgot I love their chunky chips ENJOY !!”

The Falcon, Clapham (Bar)
“I have been to the Falcon on a few occasions, It’s a great little pub but seem to have no atmosphere, It takes about three weeks to get drink and I don’t think the bar staff know how to use their measures, watch them for a minute and they seem to take great pride in under pouring every time. I had an ok day out in the beer garden but once again there was a severe lack of atmosphere, some music would be nice. It is a nice little pub but I wouldn’t go there if you were after a big day of drinking and being merry, you will spend most of your day at the bar waiting to get served, there is too many other bars and pubs in the area to settle for second best.”

Loungelover, Shoreditch (Bar)
“I dropped into Loungelover at 11pm on a Friday night, dropped my sack of bagels off at the accomodating reception and headed for the Bar, as one does. The floor staff looked at me as if my head was on backwards. The oh-so-macho barmen took my arrival in better stride and mixed me up a couple of cocktails. They didn't know how to mix a treacle so I talked one of them through it and he made a fine fist of it, my daiquiri follow-up was a touch sour for my palette. Now I don't know about you but I'm normally happy enough pottering into a bar solo and having a chat with the bar if it isn't too busy. The guys behind the counter were affable enough, but I had no-where to sit and had to pay service (!) on my two cocktails, taking them over the tenner each. Ouch. Scanning the place, everyone was seated, very well-behaved, and intent on looking hip, without adding much to a self-concious, rather studiously cool atmosphere. Having said all that, it would make an impressive venue for a blind-date, because it looks great and there's plenty to look at. With the right people in tow, I'd be prepared to have another go at this place.”

Crazy Bear, Fitzrovia (Bar / Restaurant)
“this place is terribly overpriced... you have to book your seats here, a bit of a queue to get in while the were checking all the party guests in. We had a leather clad booth that kind of resembled a padded cell that we had to step into. The table service assistant had no customer service patience at all - slamming down change trays on the table and eyes rolling when one of our party of 12 wanted another drink - no tips for her then - apart from maybe get another job love! Other then that - not a bad venue to drink a glass of wine at an over inflated price... great toilets those - best part of the place - having a wee was like an alice in wonderland moment....”

“The Old Crown has great atmosphere especial on Friday were the bar turns in to a “Cotteye Ugly” style with shooter girls and dancing on the bar and window sill. During the day the food is very good selection and quality. The Reviewer Sebastian Lander has not been to the bar for a while because it does now serve Jack Daniels! ”
