I went to the Old Nick last night with a bunch of friends. I paid £7.15 for a very inferior glass of house red - possibly the most expensive bad wine I've ever tasted. We're not going there again

Took a colleague here to eat, I have never been so embarrassed. The food was awful. Fish n chips ... Clearly frozen and then over deep fried. A side of potato skins that oozed grease as I cut into them. Didn't eat much of it,...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
