I am still trying to work out the kink in my neck which I acquired while admiring the architectural beauty of St. Paul’s Cathedral. It is an amazing building with soring ceilings, with something to see in every nook and cranny.
A guide like our Derek is well worth the extra £3, or else I’m not sure you would know where to start, and you might miss seeing some of the amazing things the cathedral holds.
Christopher Wren I salute you!

This pub/restaurant has a great position cliff-side with amazing views. Staff are friendly, there is a good selection of drinks and bear on on tap. It is a comfortable clean place, a pleasant place to have some drinks with friends.
The food side of things didn’t impress me though, it’s the kind of menu that tries to please everyone, and the food itself is mediocre. I prefer a placed to have a smaller selection on the menu and do it well.
The nachos are dire – stay away, unless you like to have ketchup flavoured nachos. Really they should just stop and take them off the menu, good nachos are not hard to make, this is a huge bear bug with me about nachos in UK pus.

A great spot for a “tet a tet” over some drinks and tapas. The food is top quality and the staff attentive and considerate. The menu is extensive so there is sure to be something everyone likes. When our food was taking longer than they thought it should to be prepared we were offered bread and olives on the house.
The indoor part of the restaurant is very small but on a summers day the large outdoor area would be a fantastic place to enjoy the food, drinks and coffee on offer at Le Pont. However when inside it is very cozy and comfortable.
I look forward to going back again.

YHZ (now you can understand my Qype name) has been renamed Halifax Stanfield International Airport, but everyone still just calls it Halifax International.
The renovations of the airport are done. It is a huge improvement (I’ve been using this Airport since 1991) to the stuck in the 70’s airport that it was. The international arrivals area is light and airy with lots of wood and some running water. A nice welcome for those coming from afar.
There is a lovely new multi story parking garage, and all the usual airport amities one would expect, currency bureau, tourist help desk, shops restaurants, and a pub.
One think I have always loved about this airport is despite being about 40 minutes from town once you are there you are in and up to the gate in no time. It is compact and well organized.
When there is public transport to the airport I will give it 5 stars, that is all that is missing at the moment, which means if you don’t have friends or family to pick you up (or a rental car) it is an expensive trek to town in a taxi or the shuttle bus.

Don’t go hungry to Broadway Market or you will come out broke! The market is mainly a food market. The food all looks amazing, and what I’ve had is really good, but it is on the expensive side. The market is a good size so it’s not tiring to get through it, and the crowds are a lot thinner than other markets like Borough or Portobello which is nice.
I also enjoy it for the lovely cafe’s and pubs along the road where the market is. sit outside if it’s a nice day and people watch. The market is a great place to stop for a morning coffee, pick up supplies for a picnic lunch then head to the park.

I love a good coffee shop. As well I am learning to make a great cuppa at home with all my new coffee gadgets. So when home in Nova Scotia I was happy to find out that the “darkside” aka Dartmouth finally has a nice cafe that serves really good coffee made by properly trained baristas.
Two if By Sea (TIBS) is he new local hot spot. Located near the waterfront in Dartmouth a 10 minute walk from the Halifax ferry means that even the occasional Haligonian finds their way to the cafe.
Two if By Sea have a great menu of hot drinks, including something I don’t see in England, hot apple cider (for those in the UK, it’s non-alcoholic) yummy.
The food on offer is very tempting, including cinnamon buns, cookies, as well as croissants (both sweet and savoury) so generous they’re a meal on their own. These are all baked on-site, the smell wafting through the cafe making them that much harder to resist.
It’s great to see a business in downtown Dartmouth thrive, and may there be many more business set up shop and do well. I hope one day to see the downtown of Dartmouth come alive again.
The reason for not giving the 5th star, a minor one but it is the staircase in the middle of the shop that leads to an unfinished floor… just gives a feeling of the place not being done.

I agree with Roadpoet’s review, a consistent take away that will satisfy your Chinese craving but won’t blow you away. The owners are friendly and quick so you won’t be waiting too long and the portions for what you pay are good value.
The Sweet and Sour Chicken balls Hong Kong style is ace, I think the best dish I’ve had from there. Prawn crackers are very prawn like, as said before strongly flavoured.

I went for a cut and full head of colour. The salon is well located, bright and modern. The day I was there was very busy but the staff all seemed to be keeping calm.
From there it was all downhill, the colour my hair was at the end didn’t look much like the colour I chose, there seemed to be a langue issue with the stylist, and my hair isn’t difficult to cut, (it’s healthy, long, straight with some layers) yet I came out with a cut I was not happy with which is very rare.
I’ll be back at Saks Academy for my colouring in future, the students there do a far better job. What a disappointment from a salon in Knightsbridge.

Allpress Espresso makes an amazing coffee, great flavour, and fantastic texture. I have gone out of my way to go by and get one from here when I can. The staff are friendly, great knowledgeable baristas, and the food quality as well (I love the style of the menu board).
The only downsides, there is only one location in London and it’s a bit small so it’s cramped for those having food and eating in.
I’ll be looking forward to another location opening.
