  • Belgo

    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...

  • The Witchery By The Castle

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Edinburgh Restaurants

    The other half of the Secret Garden - visited Hallowe'en 2013 and 2014 and going same day 2015! - please refer other review ! Also from http://thewitchery.com/The-Secret-Garden.html "Is this the prettiest restaurant ever? I think so" -Andrew Lloyd Webber The elegant charms of the Secret Garden are one of the city's best-kept secrets. Hidden down...

  • El Rincon De Rafas

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Manchester Restaurants

    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...

  • Chinatown restaurants

    5 out of 5 stars

    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 Willow Tea Room

    4 out of 5 stars

    Glasgow Restaurants

    Glasgow’s raison d’être was its shipyards and heavy industry, and it’s a history and heritage that I find really interesting and one of the reasons I enjoy coming here, so it comes as a bit of a shock to me, let alone anyone else, to find myself writing about tea shops, so please bear with me. The reason that I’m writing about the Willow Tearooms...

  • Pubs/Bars

    4 out of 5 stars

    Cardiff Restaurants

    I stopped by at the Rummer Tavern for lunch on my final full day in Cardiff in January 2016. I had a look through their menu, ordered at the bar and took a seat at a table at the rear of the pub. The pub itself is supposedly three centuries old and the building definitely has the ambience of an old pub full of character. The lighting inside is a...

  • 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...

  • The Regency Restaurant

    Brighton Restaurants

    The Regency has it all. History, great location and excellent seafood. The restaurant looks almost identical to when it opened as an eatery in the 1930’s. It’s actually part of an 18th century mansion that belonged to Harriott Mellon. She was the widow of Thomas Coutts, founder of the prestigious Coutts Bank. It enjoys excellent views of the...

  • 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...

  • Beatrice Kennedy

    Belfast Restaurants

    I really like this intimate restaurant. It’s located in the converted Victoria-era home of Beatrice Kennedy and her physician husband. In fact I had a very hard time finding this place in the dark as it just blends in with the other large residential houses around it. Inside is a narrow, but cosy well decorated interior. The staff are all young...

  • Hard Rock Cafe

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Bristol Restaurants

    Bristol has a diverse scene of Bars,clubs and eatries. Always changing with the times,sadly this bar is no longer there!! However there are many bars and clubs you can check out along Bristol Harbourside

  • The Albion

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Chester Restaurants

    This is not a restaurant. It is a pub that serves food and that was very basic. We went there as a group of four.Not made to feel welcome. In actual fact, as there was a quiz going on we felt in the way and left as soon as we had eaten to continue the night in another pub down the road at which we were made to feel very welcome. We were not offered...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Mustard Seed

    Inverness Restaurants

    The Mustard Seed is an independent restaurant that has been creating Scottish food the way it should be since 1985. They say they offer a “modern European menu with Highland influences”. I think they do a great job. They source as many ingredients as they can locally. They even sometimes list the name of the farm that has provided your steak and...

  • Ed's Easy Diner

    Sheffield Restaurants

    When I say the Worst American ever, you probably are thinking of Jeffrey Dahmer or Alferd Packer. Both serial cannibals. Who knows? Maybe they ate here first and even human flash tasted better. Yes, Ed’s Easy Dinner sucks the big one. I cannot believe just how bad this place is food-wise. The famous American Baseball Coach Joe Torre once publicly...

  • Magpie Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    Whitby Restaurants

    They have the reputation of serving the world's best fish and chips. Unfortunately, that reputation has spread around very far which means that you can queue for quite a long time before you get a table. If you want a table for classic lunch or dinner times, reserve ahead or prepare to wait – especially during the summer season and on...

  • 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

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Chapter House

    Salisbury Restaurants

    When I asked the owner of St Anns House what the best restaurant was in Salisbury, he said The Chapter house. For the record, he is a chef himself. He explained that the owner was from South Africa and that he had turned this 800 year old Pub into a top restaurant. When we arrived we were actually greeted by the owner and ushered past a very...

  • Noodle Nation, formerly Noodle Bar

    4 out of 5 stars

    High Wycombe Restaurants

    This is literally a 'fast food' restaurant. It used to be known as 'Noodle Bar' but changed its name to 'Noodle Nation' as they couldn't trademark the old name. You choose either soup noodles or stir fry noodles: tthere are several choices of noodle (mai fun, yo min etc), which you can have with chicken, vegetables, beef, duck, seafood etc. ....

  • 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'...

  • Alfie & the Kaiser

    Ilfracombe Restaurants

    The latest addition (summer 2015) to the ever-growing clutch of classy restaurants here in Ilfracombe is the interestingly-named "Alfie and the Kaiser", which of course has a little local story behind it. It seems that members of the Prussian royal family, the Hohenzollerns, were visiting Ilfracombe during the summer of 1878. This included the...

  • Claws - Jenny's

    Brixham Restaurants

    Claws, locally known as "Jenny's", is a coloured little kiosk with tables, chairs and umbrellas located on the quay. There has been a family run shellfish business of the site of Claws for over 60 years; originally it was run off trestles and boards until the early 1960s when the first kiosk was built. In 2001 the kiosk was purchased by the current...

  • 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...

  • Haworth Steam Brewery

    Haworth Restaurants

    It wasn't the lure of the Brontes that attracted me to Haworth while looking for a day trip in West Yorkshire in July 2015. Nope. It was the Haworth Steam Brewery. Emma could enjoy shopping in the quirky individual shops that line steep Main Street, we'd have some lunch and then pop in here for some freshly brewed beer. And that's pretty much how...

  • Treeby & Bolton Cafe

    Keswick Restaurants

    Treeby & Bolton is a long-established china shop in Keswick which has expanded to include a gallery of contemporary art. But we didn't know that when we came across it whilst looking for somewhere to have lunch. The cafe is on the ground floor and has a separate entrance. It is bright and modern, with a tempting display of cakes. We decided to go...

  • Jack-Pots

    Leeds Restaurants

    Before I extoll the virtues of their Breakfast for business people, I need to explain an English expression for those of you visiting. A baked potato is known as a ‘jacket potato’. When you walk in this nice eatery and see all the potatoes you will soon realise the name has nothing to do with gambling. Despite the wonderful looking fillings 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.

  • Slipway Hotel

    Port Isaac Restaurants

    Since we were staying at the Slipway Hotel, breakfast was included, but I don't think people not staying there could come in for breakfast. Breakfast at the hotel is 8:30-9:30 and is included in the price. We had a choice of three kinds of fruit juices (apple, orange and grapefruit) cold cereals and various kinds of eggs, porridge, sausage, bacon,...

  • Park Guest House Restaurant

    Stornoway Restaurants

    The Park Guest House house has won Eat Scotland Awards from 2007 to 2012 and deserved everyone. The owners, Roddy and Catherine Afrin, run a first class accommodation. I only ate here, but the whole house looked beautiful. They have been written about in the Taste of Scotland Guide since 1990. They even offer cooking classes, just email them! I...

  • 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...

  • Oaktree Restaurant

    Paignton Restaurants

    We were in Paignton on a Sunday evening, having just been the Zoo. Rather than go straight back to Torquay, we thought we would see what Paignton had to offer. After wandering for a while without finding anything that looked particularly tempting, we came across the Oaktree. They were offering a Sunday evening ‘special’ menu before 6.30. It was...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Tabla Bar and Indian Restaurant

    Hounslow Restaurants

    Tabla Bar and Indian Restaurant is a beautiful, stylish and large venue. It looks like a place to be seen at. Unfortunately I found my food hot without any flavour. The staff are great and friendly, but the food just looks mass produced. I ordered Panjabi Tikka Masala and basmati rice and a cold beer. The beer was good. My sauce just looked like...

  • Seafood

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Whitstable Restaurants

    If you find yourself down Whitstable way, and you want to have a fantastic meal (Michelin starred no less) in a very relaxed environment (run-down looking pub) off the beaten track (in the middle of nowhere), then I can highly recommend The Sportsman. This pub is located in Seasalter, a couple of miles from Whitstable in Kent. We trekked down from...

  • 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...

  • Emma's Tea Parlour

    Holmfirth Restaurants

    My wife and I visited Emma's Tea Parlour one Saturday lunchtime during a day trip to Holmfirth in June 2015. This quaint cafe, with seating on two floors, is located on Hollowgate, close to the river, just a few minutes walk from the centre of the village. We sat downstairs at a small wooden table next to the serving counter (where we could see...

  • Calan's Micropub

    Hebden Bridge Restaurants

    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...
