    Good areas in London to go out for drinks with friends?

    Agree with most of the points above, but also check out Clapham High Street / Clapham Junction. Lots of variety in Bars / Pubs & Clubs like The Whitehouse. Not as over crowded as central and not as weird as Shoreditch! I'd presonally avoid Leicester Square but thats because I'm not a tourist into cheesey R&B. Soho also has masses of quality places to check out which is central and easy to get around. over 10 years ago

    What are some great cocktail bars in London?

    The Player in Soho The bar in Cocoon on Regent Street does an AMAZING Passion Fruit & Cinnamon cocktail which I've never found anywhere else. Lounge Lover in East London is also very good. Something a bit more hectic would be the Moose Bar opposite Selfridges, it has a club downstairs which is busy every night of the week. over 10 years ago

    What are the best gastro pubs in London?

    Errr I'd have to disagree slightly. Have eaten at Firestables and while its nice I would say there are better... Depends on what exactly you're after, there's different takes on "Gastro Pub" these days. At the upper end of the spectrum you have the Gordon Ramsay "The Grapes" between Wapping & Canary Wharf and also "The Gun" which is famous for its Sunday Lunch. You can sit outside with the Thames only inches away. At the more wallet friendly, relaxed style you have places like the "Jolly Gardners" in Putney which has amazing food, sundays used to have a live DJ playing an ecletic mix of downtempo music and also board games to while away the hours. Be prepared for a wait though as there's no booking system just arrive and wait to grab a suitable table. You have plenty of other places dotted around. The Earl Spencer on Merton Road (Wimbledon / Wandsworth) Has won loads of awards for Londons Best Gastro Pub over the years although I found the atmosphere a bit cold... Had some great meals in West London along e High Road Brasserie on Chiswick Hig Road (celebrity owned again) was top end, as was The Ealing Park Tavern and the Rocket in Acton.. Plenty of choices, just depends where you're staying at what kind of atmosphere you're after! over 10 years ago

    What are the best places to visit in Eastern Europe?

    Agree with the touristy comment about Prague, far too many British stag do's have ruined it for proper tourists and the locals really don't appreciate what has happened these days. Warsaw was amazing, fantastic architecture, friendly people (mainly) and quite accepting of tourists. Definitely worth checking out. over 10 years ago

    Has anyone played golf in Scotland or Ireland and what were the best courses ? Also, how hard was it to get on and what sort of prices ?

    St Andrews, Turnburry, Loch Lomand, Turnberry... Vistors can play all of these although different restrictions apply. You'll have to wear suitable attire for each, have a proveable handicap and proper shoes. Check for special offers as there should be plenty of discounts about from experience days and that kind of site. over 10 years ago
