  • Hard Rock Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    London Restaurants

    The first Hard Rock Cafe was opened in Old Park Lane in June 1971, with food normally on the menu at an American Diner with Rock and Roll music playing while you ate. Eric Clapton donated his Fender Guitar so he could reserve a seat at the bar and occasionally rock stars can be seen jamming here. The cafe has a very expensive collection of Rock...

  • Yang Sing

    4 out of 5 stars

    Manchester Restaurants

    The Yang Sing is a large, very posh Chinese Restaurant in Manchester's Chinatown, and generally regarded as the best Chinese restaurant in Europe. I have only eaten here once but it was delicious, definitely an experience I will remember! The staff were also very friendly, suggesting a delicious alternative to an item from the set menu. We had the...

  • Restaurants outside the city

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Newcastle upon Tyne Restaurants

    This pub at the northern edge of Whitley Bay offers a large if somewhat unexciting space, but its several distinct areas make it feel less impersonal and provide a separate area for families. The fairly extensive menu offers pub classics including locally caught fish and chips, which has been very good on the several occasions I have had it. Good...

  • Balti Triangle Info

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Birmingham Restaurants

    Award winning Chef and friendly, stylish restaurant with food to delight, savour and wish I could get them to franchise in Australia! The Indian migrants were on a winner by giving Brummies an alternative to bland Anglo food. especially after the clubs and pubs closed! The food is exquisite and good value. 5-10pounds. The staff always courteous...

  • Eagle & Child

    4 out of 5 stars

    Oxford Restaurants

    The Pony Yard at the back of the Eagle and Child has been covered over as a restaurant area. This means that The Rabbit Room where the famous Inklings (JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, et al) used to meet together is not now a back parlour, but a recessed area near the bar. It is easily recognisable with photographs and mementos of The Inklings framed on the...

  • Betty's, St. Helen's Square

    4 out of 5 stars

    York Restaurants

    Tell anyone you are visiting York and it's quite likely that they will tell you to go to Betty's and have a fat rascal. So I figured on my 3rd trip to York that I should finally visit although I did pass on the fat rascal. We went around noon and there was a short queue, if you didn't mind eating downstairs with no windows you could walk right in...

  • The Eagle

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Cambridge Restaurants

    I would recommend the Eagle rather as a place of interest than a pub. Of course, a drink in the RAF bar and a toast to Crick and Watson, the scientists who met here to discuss their progresses in their DNA research. A commemorative plaque to Crick and Watson, who discovered the secret of the human DNA in 1953, is located in one of the bars. The RAF...

  • Sally Lunn's

    4 out of 5 stars

    Bath Restaurants

    I had afternoon tea at Sally Lunn's, home of the original bath bun, twice on my visits to Bath. The afternoon tea consist of a Bath Bun with jam and clotted cream and with either tea or coffee. On my first visit to Bath (June 2006), I ordered the 'Sally Lunn Cream Tea' which includes half a toasted Sally Lunn Bun is served with strawberry jam and...

  • King William Ale House

    Bristol Restaurants

    We entered at King William Ale House by accident one cold afternoon that we just wanted a place to warm up a bit before heading for a night club. We loved the no smoking lounge and especially the real coal fire in front of us!(pic 2) We stood there next to the fireplace and we returned the next day again. There are other rooms too (the main bar is...

  • Hole in the Wall

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Torquay Restaurants

    I have mentioned many times on Virtual Tourist about the great value of local knowledge when choosing a place to eat and this applies whether I am in Durham or Dumaguete, Bangkok or Bangor. It was therefore with high expectations that I went to the Hole in the Wall in Torquay during a recent VT meet brilliantly organised by Malcolm aka EASYMALC as...

  • Bear and Billet

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Chester Restaurants

    The Bear and Billet is a great old pub in Chester. It was built in 1664 replacing a building destroyed during the civil war. The Bear and Billet is a great example of a black and white half timbered building. It was originally the town house of the Earls of Shrewsbury (the sergeants of the Bridgegate), The building has been an inn since the 18th...

  • The Hare & Hounds at Staxton

    Scarborough Restaurants

    We enjoyed an evening meal at The Hare & Hounds in Staxton during a weekend visit to Scarborough in June 2015. This traditional countryside pub, housed in a 16th Century coaching house, is located on the main A64 road a few miles outside Scarborough. We were staying at The Ganton Greyhound, just a few minutes' drive from The Hare & Hounds. It was...

  • Magpie Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    Whitby Restaurants

    Magpie is the most recommended place in Whitby to eat, mainly known for their fish and chips but there certainly are a lot of other choices on the menu. When we arrived on a Tuesday afternoon at about 1pm there was a short queue but it went fast and we were seated in about 15 minutes. Seating is on at least two floors, we were seated upstairs and...

  • Prospect Inn

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Exeter Restaurants

    The Prospect Inn is situated in the wonderfully vibrant quayside area of Exeter. After driving at a maximum speed of 10 mph for miles on end along the M5 motorway we arrived at Exeter in a ravenous state. Luckily I had checked VT for a suitable place to eat and made a bee-line for the Quay. Outside the Prospect Inn you will find a large outside...

  • Tudor Rose Tea Room

    Plymouth Restaurants

    I was recommended by my guest house to have a cream tea at this tea room and I was not disapppointed! It was nice spending time in this traditional tea room and housed in the Barbican, one of the oldest listed premises dating from 1640. You can sit the gardens at the back which overlook the Elizabethan Gardens. I, however, had to wait a bit...

  • Goddards Pie and Mash shop - old and new...

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Greenwich Restaurants

    Goddards at Greenwich is a traditional pie mash and liquor restaurant. This really is traditional food as the family recipes go back to 1890 and pie mash is known for over 200 years. Business hours: Mo-Th: 10AM - 7PM Fr-Sa: 10AM - 8PM Su: 10AM - 7:30PM

  • Marisco Tavern

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Lundy Island Restaurants

    It seems that many people are very concerned with the concept of "food miles" these days (i.e. how far the food has travelled from production to table) and it has to be said that the Marisco Tavern on Lundy really has to score very highly on this criterion for a good restaurant. Much of the produce is sourced from Lundy and when you consider that...

  • Morelli's

    5 out of 5 stars

    Broadstairs Restaurants

    A visit to Morelli's is always on our itineray when visiting Broadstairs. The ice cream sundaes are beautiful. They are always made fresh, always made with love and always tast delicious. We always will call it the Brazilian, but nowadays it's official name is the Broadstairs special.

  • Giggling Squid

    Stratford-upon-Avon Restaurants

    Giggling Squid is part of a small chain serving Thai food, from street food to coastal specialities. The ubiquitous green curry is of course on the menu, but there are also street foods I hadn't tried before, including Moo Ping (pork meat cooked on a skewer with a delicious dipping sauce. At lunch times they offer tasting sets or 'Thai tapas'...

  • Rickshaw Boy

    Paignton Restaurants

    The much-missed writer Pete McCarthy in his book "McCarthy's Bar" (which remains IMO the best-written travel book ever - "Never pass a bar with your name on it", being one of my favourite maxims.) uses the price and quality of "Singapore Noodles" as his yardstick of a place's culinary and economic development. Done properly Singapore Noodles...

    Ilfracombe Restaurants

    The Larkstone Cafe and Restaurant is a firm family favourite. The great value food here keeps everybody happy and the leisure park provides a fun space for the kids to run free. Extensive menus offer great choice with light lunches, sharing platters, burgers, cream teas and superb Sunday lunches. Fully licensed with a selection and good wines and...

  • The Cherub

    4 out of 5 stars

    Dartmouth Restaurants

    From a visitor’s perspective, there is one hostelry that shouldn’t really be missed when visiting Dartmouth - and that’s The Cherub. Although the food and drink are fine, it’s the building that steals the show. Built around 1380, this former Merchant’s House is the oldest secular building in Dartmouth and the only complete medieval house. It...

  • Blue Anchor

    Brixham Restaurants

    I'm a bit funny about eating in pubs, despite the fact that I quite often cook for them. What I hate is when a pub becomes nothing but a restaurant and so loses that egalitarian quality which makes a pub a pub. Here at the Blue Anchor I was dead impressed. Despite visiting on a busy Saturday lunchtime when the pub was full of fellow tourists and...

  • Kingsbridge Inn

    Totnes Restaurants

    There is no shortage of eating and drinking establishments in Totnes, and no matter what your preferences are there’s bound to be something to suit everyone. I’ve always been a pub man and so you’ll find that most of my reviews will be based around pubs. The trouble is that I never know whether to include them under nightlife or restaurants, so...

  • Babushka Russian Shop

    Halifax Restaurants

    Babushka Russian Shop is a small cafe, tea shop and Russian gift shop located within the building of Halifax Borough Market. We visited one Saturday afternoon in July 2015 during a short stay in the town. It was the lengthy tea menu that drew us in. A chalk board outside advertised the fact that there were 135 different varieties of tea to choose...

  • Herbie's

    Lyme Regis Restaurants

    No visit to the seaside is complete without a dish of fish and chips eaten around the harbour. Herbie's Bar is a typical seafront kiosk selling take away food - burgers, pies - and fish and chips. But this one has been written up in the quality newspapers and is said to be the "best in the west". It is for fish and chips that Herbie's first became...

  • Cottage Tea Rooms

    Clovelly Restaurants

    This is the place for your light lunch or snack here in the village if you're not tempted by either of the pubs offerings. This is a perfect old-fashioned "Tea-room" with frilly lace tablecloths in pleasantly atmospheric surroundings and with the added bonus of a sunny courtyard overlooking the bay. But please don't sit on the dry-stone pebbled...

  • Harbour Fish Bar

    Teignmouth Restaurants

    As both a seaside resort and having its own fishing fleet the town's culinary speciality is fish'n chips. You'll find half-a-dozen or so shops (both take-away and eat-in) dotted around the centre and a couple more along the seafront. The Harbour Fish Bar (established 1989) is as good as any for a take-away. Service is quick and friendly and prices...

  • Good Earth

    Leicester Restaurants

    I accidentally stumbled across this restaurant situated on a side street off Halford Street, Leicester City Centre. I decided as and then I'll have my lunch there and didn't regret it! I loved the cosy and homely ambiance of the restaurant. The restaurant has a countryside feel with its farmhouse artifacts, furniture and so forth. The Good Earth...

  • Browns - Now Wetherspoons

    Tavistock Restaurants

    UPDATE 2015 - Browns is now part of the pubco J D Wetherspoons :-( Food's my thing - I eat very little else ;) Here at Browns they do food which is both visually spectacular and very tasty. I'd eaten here many years ago and enjoyed - this visit superceded my memories. I was just looking for a light, very late, lunch and the Brasserie Menu had...

  • Tarka Inn, Heanton

    Barnstaple Restaurants

    OK this is part of a National chain: the Vintage Inns "concept" of the Pubco: Mitchells and Butlers, BUT it is a stunning Inn with great views over the Taw Estuary, friendly staff, good food and immaculately appointed interior. The building itself too is stunning with its crenellated wings and Devon stone - whether it was built as a coaching inn or...

  • Captain Jack's

    Woolacombe Restaurants

    Devon certainly has some great pubs and Captain Jack's here in Woolacombe has just joined my personal top 20! This is a really characterful pub, both externally and internally, built on the site of a 12th century farmhouse, remains of which can be seen (if you know they are there) in the courtyard . The modern incarnation as a "Smugglers Retreat"...

  • Calan's Micropub

    We popped into Calan's Micropub for drinks during a visit to Hebden Bridge one Sunday afternoon in July 2015. Seeking shelter from the rain, we were actually heading towards The White Swan (a nice looking pub next to Hebden Old Bridge) when I happened to glance down a side street and see Calan's Micropub tucked away in a corner next to Aya Sophia...

  • The Grove

    Exmouth Restaurants

    The Grove is a nice pub, owned by the London Brewers Youngs whose beers are amongst my personal favourites. As well as great beer Youngs pubs also offer excellent pub food, usually made on the premises with locally-sourced ingredients and here at The Grove is no exception. I've eaten here a couple of times over the years and the service has always...

  • Britannia@TheBeach

    Slapton Restaurants

    The Britannia @ The Beach is known as ‘The Shack’ and for a very good reason - that’s exactly what it is. If you like seafood then this is a great alternative to the Cricket Inn. Whereas the Cricket has fine dining in a modern dining room, the Shack offers great food in more humble surroundings. Admittedly it might not be everyone’s idea of an...

  • Cafes - Greasy Joes

    Dawlish Restaurants

    • Salters were always recognized as greasy Joes because the food was a bit greasy & the chips were a bit mushy. Jimmy the Greeks at the top of strand hill used to be the greatest. There was the wimpy in Brunswick place & the place on the corner round from Harrison’s used to deep fry their fish fingers & it blew me away as a kid. They were dear &...

  • Weavers' Cottage Tea Shoppe

    Cockington Restaurants

    If I was a politician I would have to declare an interest in the Weavers’ Cottage Tea Shoppe, not a financial one, but as an acquaintance of the owners. I always try to keep my reviews unbiased otherwise there’s no point in writing these tips in the first place. Paul and Karen who run the tea shop, welcomed me the first time I met them, and they do...

    I was looking for something special while I was staying in Crewe for business. The second I walked into Papaya, I knew I had found the best restaurant in the city. I was welcome warmly and a very nice menu was handed to me. My cold Cobra beer appeared before I could finish looking at the very interesting offers on the menu. There were steaks – but...

    Marlborough Restaurants

    We dislike driving on motorways, so travelling down to Devon we turned off the M4 and drove through Wiltshire. I remembered from a visit to nearby Avebury that Marlborough had some nice looking places for a quick lunch. We found a short-term parking space in the High Street, and set off to find somewhere that we could get lunch in 30 minutes. We...

    I can assure you that this is authentic and lovely Ethiopian cooking at it's best. I used to live in Ethiopia and was so pleased to enjoy an amazingly mouth-watering meal. The service is friendly and helpful. If you have never tried Ethiopian food, you are in for a real treat here at Wolkite Kitfo. The ingredients were fresh, tasty and cooked to...

  • Belgo Centraal (Covent Garden)

    4 out of 5 stars

    London Restaurants

    Last visit January 2008 I've eaten at Belgo several times, on my most recent visit it wasn't very crowded at lunch on a Monday. The restaurant is located in a rather funky basement, seating is at long communal tables and the noise level is loud when it's busy. If it hadn't been listed in virtually every guidebook I might have thought twice but...

    On a recent visit to Manchester, not knowing the city at all, I cast my net of contacts looking for suggestions. A friend of a friend highly recommended a tapas bar in the centre of the city called El Rincon de Rafa. As always, local knowledge proved to be invaluable and my companion and I had an absolutely wonderful dining experience. I have to...

    Newcastle upon Tyne Restaurants

    Newcastle has its own small China town with supermarkets and several restaurants. There looked some great buffet restauants - eat as much as you can/dare type - that looked very tasty . In particular Dragon House looked inviting judged by all the dishes we saw through the window as we walked past. Shame we had already etean, next time then ;-)

  • The Bank

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Birmingham Restaurants

    It's large, it's contemporary, it's a destination, it's part of the Brindley Place development. Bank has basically everything going for it. Thankfully, the kitchens live up to expectations. Walk past the lively and chic bar (or stop off for a pre-dinner/lunch drink), past the open-plan kitchen and on to the open dining area at the back. The menu...

    My colleagues and I went to The Trout for a celebratory meal. We were really looking forward to what we supposed would be an enjoyable outing. However, once through the doors our hopes were soon dashed by surly waiters and very poor service. The pub was not busy, yet it took over two hours for our two courses to be served. Items were forgotten and...
