The pubs/bars of England are probably the best places to search for H-Files! Changed base from a deteriorating part of SE London to Guildford in May 2007 and the H-File search is well underway in the latter.

The Market Tavern, Lewisham

I thought there already was a KFC on Lewisham High Street not too far away from this location?

All Bar One, Guildford

I came here for the first time since the venue became All Bar One around 9ish on Saturday night (10 March) with a female friend. Like Arsenal�s start to the current Premier League campaign, my night started inauspiciously but later improved. On ordering drinks, I found myself beginning to sweat due to how hot it was in here (I only later discovered that the air conditioning had broken), though I was served promptly by an attentive and efficient member of bar staff.

The distraction of how sweltering it was resulted in me forgetting the prices of our drinks, though I do not recall them being too expensive. My female friend, however, started with a soft drink and the next round I also had a soft drink as I was so hot! We eventually found seating upstairs � where it was still uncomfortably hot � and I observed that the crowd was of a more mature nature. While paying attention to my pretty female friend of course, I did notice there was some female talent around going to and from the upstairs toilets. The music playing in here was initially lyric less before the DJ arrived downstairs and starting playing more contemporary and livelier music (that contained lyrics).

Overall, despite the air con fiasco, I would certainly come here again on a Friday/Saturday night � either with a female friend or with the lads � given the place is a decent alternative to the nearby Tickled Ivory Piano Bar and the usual type of crowd that pulls. In fact, I would say All Bar One is marginally better.

Old Orleans, Guildford

Still closed NoDisgrace. I pass this place on route to work and mysteriously the signs are still up, though it has been closed since autumn 2010.

As I mentioned back then, forget the longest bar (and restaurant) refurbishment in Guildford's history, this is surely by now the longest refurbishment ever in England!

A considerable waste of a fairly decent location in Guildford, especially given the area for outside drinking/eating potential and of course, the ease of nearby parking.
