If you want a London Geezer pub, check out this one owned by ‘Lock Stock’ director Guy Ritchie. Especially good for a Sunday roast, get yourself round and smash some grub down ya Queen of the south.

I’m a huge Batman fan, and this place has a (very subtle) caped crusader theme. The cocktail menu is especially inventive and with food this good I may turn into a dinner, dinner, dinner, dinner… FATMAN!

This slick and smooth venue is perfect for any time of the day. The chandeliers sparkle you through breakfast, collapse of a couch for afternoon cream tea, or arrive at sunset in time for the DJ to pump you up for the evening.
