Perfect example of a boozer in London which is probably buzzing when it's busy, but seeing it almost empty in mid-Friday afternoon shows how important people are in creating atmosphere in most city pubs. There's plenty of space, but also lots of big TV screens...More

The food was delicious but wouldn't go back again due to the disgusting level of service we received. There's a chav that works there (barman's daughter?) and she has a serious attitude problem (explains why she can't get a job anywhere else.) She literally slammed...More

Non-fussy, relaxed atmosphere. Excellent and reasonably priced Thai cuisine. I could eat this ever other day.

I used to come here almost once a week but since I retired I only come a couple of times a year. It's as good as ever, homely Thai cooking at a bargain price for the City. They also do a house wine for £10,...More

Not the best Thai food I have ever had but it offers excellent value for money and good ortions. Would like to come back in the week as we ate here on a Saturday and it was dead.

Quite a good atmosphere, although high stools are a bit uncomfortable. Food was satisfactory, but nothing to write home about.

I've been slowly working my way through the current menu (Stephen Fries Burger Merchant) at Three Compasses and each of the burgers has been fantastic. My only criticism, shared by a few friends too, is that the beef patties (Stephen's Piggy) are slightly over salty...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
