I love it here. Unpretentious breakfasts and a great busy atmosphere. Not too overpriced either, which is good news! The staff always seem in a good mood. Once, they forgot our side order, so they comp-ed it and gave us complimentary coffees as well. It's the little things...

Ottolenghi Ottolenghi (Restaurant / Delicatessen / Cafe)

Loved this restaurant. Went for dinner for a treat and thought the menu was amazing, putting really interesting things together. All the food was fresh and well presented. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere and decor were nice.

I like this bar for its atmosphere and cocktails. I do, however, think it tends to get really overcrowded and that takes from the enjoyment.

Also, when I was there one night, I opened a tab. When I went to pay they tried to overcharge me by adding 2 extra drinks and £20 on to the bill! When I questioned it, she barely batted an eyelid before taking it off for me, so it made me sceptical. I would still go back though, as I have had many a good night here. It's just something to be wary of!

Really cool bar and the staff are knowledgeable and passionate about their work. They have tried to do something special here and I, for one, think it's working. Cocktails are unique and exciting (none of the usual suspects here), decor is bang on the mark and the bar staff are dressed really slick. It all works!

I would certainly recommend for chilled, intimate cocktails, especially if you want to impress a date!

I found the hostess rude and quite hostile. Staff looked like they were under a lot of pressure and I saw them making faces at customers. Cocktails were nice and the decor is lovely, but that's irrelevant if you are being treated like crap!

The Chapel The Chapel (Hair Salon)

I had to wait a few weeks before getting an appointment and so glad I did! Never been happier with a colour and cut. Really felt like I was a part of the process too, like my opinions mattered for once!

Beautiful salon - no pounding music or snotty receptionist, and a decent cup of coffee!

Will be back!
