Lauderdale House Society
Built in 1582 and set in Waterlow Park, Lauderdale House runs primarily as an arts and education centre welcoming over 65,000 visitors annually. Our varied programme includes performances, exhibitions, classes and events, as well as weddings and parties, which together bring this historic building to life.
The fascinating history, scenic setting and friendly atmosphere of Lauderdale House make it an ideal place for a range of private functions.
Maybe it has to do with age, but I am really starting to like community-based activities. Especially in a city as big and anonymous as London, I find it reassuring to once and in while run into familiar faces.Lauderdale House can be such a place: I've come here to a few yoga classes, but I also know that there's a local choir meeting here for their weekly practice as well as community art fairs etc.On top of that, Lauderdale House is beautifully located within Waterlow Park and I've witnessed many a birthday parties or wedding receptions here with Lauderdale House being the gracious and visually stunning host.

My favourite Indian restaurant - food is incredible and delicious! Their garlic naan is to die for. Very reasonably priced and always made fresh. The staff are extremely friendly and have come to know me over the years, they make me feel very welcome and are genuinely happy to see me every time. Sundays they do a buffet for a ridiculously cheap price, would highly recommend!!

I had to organise my 60 birthday party in a week and Goran managed to accommodate all my needs at a very reasonable price. The venue is fantastic and was decorated to a very good quality with many configurations available for whatever occasion. Security and staff and especially Goran where very friendly and accommodating to all my needs which included PA, DJ equipment and late finish, 4am on a Friday. Car parking is in abundance and the venue is tucked away so there is no chance of disturbing neighbors. Also had food supplied by Delano caterers that was delicious and varied in choice and temptingly displayed that added to the ambience and quality of my party. He also was flexible and accommodating and the Caribbean buffet style cuisine was totally sold out and consumed by my guests, mostly Caribbean, who all commented on exquisite flavor, choice and presentation. Would use this venue again at a heartbeat and intend to at some point.

We serve a delicious dining mix of traditional British favourites and seasonal dishes using the freshest of ingredients, and there’s a grazing menu with smaller plates, sharing boards and sandwiches.
Excellent local pub. The food here is amazing, would recomend it for lunch. They also have an great range of wine. There are also seats outside by the docks. The staff here are amazing, in particular Sarah and Trisha they always make sure the customers are happy and provide an excellent service. We eat out daily in different places in Canary Wharf and the service here is one of the best in the whole area. Well done guys.

No.4 Hamilton Place is an events venue in London and is as much about exceptional details as it is about an exceptional location. Not only is the building itself listed, the bow windows and the baroque staircase are too. The features are stunning and there is arguably even more delight in the very fine Edwardian details – from the door handles, Louis XVI gilt cornicing and chandeliers, to the magnificent window latches.

My organisation used this venue for a day event and was very impressed. The service is perfect with the event manager providing all requirements and support for our event. The equipment works seamlessly. It would be nice if the blinds could be individually controlled rather than collectively. The food service was of a great standard. The rooftop garden is perfect for use during lunchtime and our delegates enjoyed the scenery. The costs are reasonable for Central London. I highly recommended the venue for conferences and events.

Will come back here in a heartbeat!

The hotel is fantastic. Amazing breakfast, indoor pool, and helpful staff. I wish there was more access to drinking water or trash bins in the hallways above the lobby. I have to walk to the gym in order to fill up my water bottle, but other than that, nice.

It was a nice bar not too many people in it
Maybe not so well known yet good views .
Nice outside area for when the sun is shining .
Not too many seats available inside .
All in all a nice area to meet prior to a match or visiting the Orbit .
So close to the 60th time we have been here you can tell we like it! Every year we also come along for Gary’s birthday. Every time we turn at at S&W we love it we are never disappointed. The food is amazing and every one serving is friendly and not just knowledgable but also enthusiastic. It’s an eating/dining experience and ooh the cocktails!
Popped in yesterday for a quick drink before heading on to a gig in Camden. The atmosphere was so welcoming, the decor is amazing. The staff are genuinely friendly and took time to talk to us too.
The menu looked so inviting and, if we had had more time, cheesecake would definitely have been bought.
Will certainly make a point of coming back to London just to visit here, I think the only difficult part will be deciding what to order, everything sounded so good.
Maybe I should move to London and gradually get the entire menu delivered :)
My wife and I went to Beduin Bar in Farringdon last week Thursday & Friday, with our work force. What a great place for late drinks and dance in central London, we had so much fun. Bar staff are great and quick to serve.My wife and friends have asked me to make a note here regarding security:When we arrive at Beduin, we was welcomed by the Head Doorman (a tall bald tan-skin, handsome, polite, professional guy). During the night while we was outside the venue, we could see and hear the Head Doorman being verbal racial abused by 7 drunk guys, as clearly all 7 were rejected entry due to being too drunk, which 2 of the 7 were on the floor falling asleep. I tried to stop those guys abusing, and picking a fight with the Head Doorman. The Head Doorman kept quiet and professional at all times to manage the matter, but the next second... one of the drunk guy came towards us aggressively and clearly wanted to assault us because we ask them to go and leave the Head Doorman alone. The Head Doorman came and stood in front to protect my wife and me, from the drunken guy 's punch. Thank you keeping us safe on Friday After seeing it for myself...I know for a fact a lot of London venue security can learn a lot from this Head Doorman.Thank you Beduin Bar staff and the Security Head Doorman
Absolutely wonderful staff! Warm, welcoming and seemingly genuinely enthused to give patrons a great experience. 'Vikki' in particular was lovely.I normally don't drink (exception being that evening) and know next to nothing about cocktails, much less any other type of booze.Among her heroics, she: took orders straight from my table (I didn't have to walk to the bar once!), recommended my drinks (I have to say she was spot on), took the time to chat to me while my guests were running late (and thus didn't feel like such a square).But what impressed me most: I asked where the fire escapes were (I've been trapped in burning buildings before and always make a point of knowing the exits. Especially in sub ground level spaces) she duly dropped what she was doing to give me a tour of the bar's exits. Then when the fire alarm went off during the evening, she specifically came to make sure I was alright.The bar then gave a round of free drinks due to the disturbance.I've rarely ever received such attentive service from most any establishment. I am remiss in having to leave hurriedly without leaving a suitable tip... A problem remedied for next time. And there will most assuredly be a next time with the level of service I've had here.Thank you
Went and watched a talk at the SToke Newington Literary Festival. It is a great venue for such an even. Table where allayed our to extend the audience and make the even much more informal. The staff were particularly good.
Great hotel next to the Thames. You can arrive by boat if you get off the tube at Canary Wharf. Hotel layout is a bit odd but the rooms themselves are nice. As I'm Hilton Gold I got an upgrade to a deluxe room with balcony. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment on the food. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The greatest and most legendary wines by the glass. If you're not a wine connoisseur, they have expert sommeliers on hand to help. The food was also absolutely outstanding and great value. I've been twice in two days and looking forward to going back again very soon.
This was a great find, just a few minutes walk from St Pancras station. Loved the crumpets at breakfast and one of the best snack selections I’ve ever seen, from fruit to wagon wheels, sprite to coconut water. The facilities were comfortable and have great air con. Definitely would use again.
Great vibe especially when the sun is out. Great options of drinks at the bar but depending on times, it can take a while to get served due to the number of people around. Good place to go chill and enjoy some quality time with mates
Great views and vegan options, but not accessible. There's great views of the Thames and London skyline from this place and I was pleased to see a few vegan options on the menu. I had the vegan chilli and vegan chocolate torte. Both were very nice. I was disappointed to see that there's no disabled/step free access.
Did a booking with City Collection. Quite happy with their customer service, got a good price on my venue with them. They gave me so many options in London, and booked it with offer as well.
Kudos to you guys!
Went to see Lets Eat Grandma play and for a venue to see a band it is not bad. Lots of negative stuff being written about the door staff but I suspect for most people there should be no issues. It is like an airport in that you have to go through an airport metal detector and then they search you too but it was all done in an efficient way so no problems.
They do need more ladies loos and the bar is not brilliant, cans of beer that are not chilled is really not on especially at club prices.
If coming by tube use exit 4 to get to the club.
