A decent pub in the heart of Mayfair. Plenty of interesting real ales on and very tasty food. Watch out for city boys!
27 Brixton Station Road, Brixton, London SW9 7QF

An absolutely disgraceful public facility. Most of the problems stem from the incredibly poor/incompetent management and staff. Consistently rude, nonchalent and generally idiotic bafoons try to run this place but fail in such spectacular fashion that you don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Oh, and don't even bother trying to phone this place. I once called them 27 times in one weekend and nobody ever picked up.
I hate to say it, but privatise the fucker.
I'm "told" Brixton Recreation Centre used to be a multi-story car park (well, that's what my flatmate says). It's kind of believable as this is probably the ugliest building in South London. That being said, the facilities are actually decent. 6 floors of sporting bliss to be precise. Squash, 5-a-side, basketball, badminton, swimming, gymnasium and much, much more. It's also very affordable and there are monthly fees. This definitely is NOT a premium health club (far from it), but it does have a little bit of Brixton charm and it's probably one of the only public sports clubs in south London with 6 squash courts, so i' happy!
20 Upper St. Martin's Lane, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9JZ
This pub is a good people watching spot if you can get a seat outside. You're in the heart of Covent garden here, so plenty look at. The interior is fairly generic and don't expect Michelin star cooking. I suppose this pub does what it says on the tin - cold lager, reasonably friendly folk and a standard (perhaps a bit touristy) menu. Speaking of which, think twice about going here in August. This place is heaving during the summer months!
6 Brook Street, London W1S 1BB
Not quite as good as the Napket around the corner in Mayfair (no salad bar) but still a decent place to grab a sandwich. It's expensive in here, but i've always found the food to be fresh and tasty. Expect to pay £6-7 for a sandwich and a drink.
Dale Hill Hotel, Ticehurst, Wadhurst, East Sussex TN5 7DQ
Built in 1997, the Ian Woosnam course at Dale Hill is one of the finest 18 hole golf courses in Kent. The course itself is challenging, but not ridiculously so. Expect a number of lengthy, challenging Par 4s and 5s and 3-4 tight, but very pretty Par 3's.
According to Woosnam, "The course has been designed to have the perfect balance - tough enough for the pros and easy enough for the amateurs - and can be enjoyed by all."
A round here on a weekend will set you back £45 and buggies are included in this price. The course is open to the public and booking a tee time is compulsory on this course and definitely advised on the Old Course. Is it worth it? Definitely. I want to come back next weekend!

TravelZoo is actually one of my favourite travel agents/travel websites. They send round a weekly newsletter highlight the top deals from all UK holiday and filght providers. These are super exclusive deals which most of the travel agents make a loss on, so you are almost guaranteed a rock bottom price. The site is simple, easy to use and i have never had a performance prob on the site. Why can't all travel agents be like this, huh?

I think the White House ranks about 3rd or 4th on my list of night spots in Clapham to hit after 11pm. It's not a bad place (they get some pretty decent DJ's in fact), it's just a bit OTT (Oh, and it's far from a "Manhattan Style nightclub).
Anyway, The White House is worth a go if the queues for Lost Society or Artesian Wells are too long - good selection of cocktails and (generally) friendly staff and clientele.

Reasonable pub but nothing to write home about. 4 ales on tap - IPA, Landlord, Doom Bar and London Pride. Decent seating area outside (but on a noisy street). Food looks pretty mediocre.
10 Cornhill, Ipswich, Suffolk IP1 1DB
This has to be one of the cheapest pubs i've been into (in the UK) in years. £1.45 for a pint of Spitfire. A round of 5 double rum and cokes for £9.80. A full english breakfast for £2.25! Sweet Jesus... it was like going back to 1996.
Friendly staff, but i wish i could say the same for the punters. The price of the drinks obviously attracts the real trash of Ipswich. Be prepared to see fighting and vomiting if you're hear on a Friday night. Don't say i didn't warn you!
10 Cornhill, Ipswich, Suffolk IP1 1DB
Ce doit être l'un des bars les moins chers où j'ai été (en Angleterre) depuis des années. 1,45£ pour une pinte de Spitfire. Une tournée de 5 double rhum et coca pour 9,80£. Un petit-déjeuner anglais complet pour 2,25£! Mon dieu... c'était comme si on était retourné en 1996. Staff sympathique, mais j'aimerai pouvoir dire la même chose des parieurs. Le prix des boissons attire évidemment les vrais pouilleux de Ipswich. Soyez prêts à voir des bagarres et du vomi si vous y allez un vendredi soir. Ne dites pas que je vous ai pas averti!
