The Last Bid, Bond Street

This has now closed, rumour has it it may be turned into yet another 'gastropub'

The King Edward VII, Stratford

After seeing the reviews on here & living near to Stratford, I grabbed my partner & we went here for lunch one Saturday. The service was spot on, food even better & the range of beers was great. My partner likes Ales, but also drinks a lot of belgian beers, so to find a pub that close to us that serves Leffe was lovely. Staff are really friendly & we'll definately be going back with a few friends in tow!

The Last Bid, Bond Street

I like this place, it's a welcome change from other pubs in the area & I haven't one complaint about the staff, I've found them alwys friendly & helpful here.

The Fox @ Excel, ExCeL London

Possibly the worst service I've ever known. The staff cannot understand what you are ordering (Please train them properly!) & I think one of the barmen there must have the world record for pouring a pint in the slowest time ever. Ridiculously overpriced, but then I suppose this is to fleece the business people who stay locally or go to ExCel for conferences & shows. Honestly, over 4 for a decent SMALL glass of wine? Get a grip guys, this is East London, not Knightsbridge!

The Glassblower, Piccadilly

The only good thing about this pub is the fact that they sell Kronenberg White Beer.

Bonds, Mayfair

Have used this place on a regular basis, the staff turnover is constant & that goes for the managers too. half the staff cannot speak english properly so you invariably end up with the wrong drinks/meals, Service is incredibly slow & when you think that most people have only an hour for lunch, waiting for your food nearly 3/4 hour is not on!
Clearly no organisation whatsoever & can I recommend that the managers train their staff properly before releasing them on the general public?!

Loop Bar, Mayfair

I work around the corner from the Loop, now...while it is a fantastic place for lunch (very cheap special menu!) the service is atrocious... Slow is not the word... not moving better describes it! for drinks in the evening it is a great place to have so near to the office & the club is always good for a laugh!

Duke Of York, Mayfair

Great pub! Very Friendly staff, Landlady & assistant manager are fab!, food is average pub food, but always hot & fresh. Love the place & spend a lot of time in there!

The Merryhills, Oakwood

I grew up in Oakwood years ago & my family have always used the Merryhills. Over the past 5 years, this place has gone down into the gutter, the staff are absolutely useless, the food is awful, the manager is more interested in having fun than controlling the pub & I would personally say that the people that use this pub have got to be the worst bunch of people I have ever had the misfortune of sharing a pub with
