I have been coming to Roadtrip for years! There are not enough terraces in the area, so this is the best choice on a warm day. The drink selection is good (they even have a local cider on tap) and the food is good value. Burgers are juicy and the thin crust pizzas are good to share. Recently, I have... More

Keep it simple. Staff don't speak English well enough to work in this industry. Food hit and miss. Reasonable choice of drinks.

Where to go for brunch on a Sunday, I did spend a fair time looking around to find that most places are closed. I did eventually stumble on to Road trip. A cool looking place selling the best brunch around, really! I go in to get some service as clearly the only member of staff near me is the chef... More

I went there after reading about it - but as the atmosphere it didn't meet my expectations. (but it was a midday, and almost entirely empty - it has the potential to be better at evening). The waitress was not that friendly but the food was delicious! I only had a salad - salasparagus, but it might be the best... More

This is such a conveniently located spot that I've gravitated here many times. Its a nice vibe on a rainy Sunday. Its weird on a Friday night. It has awful service on a Saturday. I mean, its hard to really get a feel, but its got booze and when that's all you need then who cares right? Its wildly decorated,... More

Stumbled across this on the way to a gig - the decor and decorations were great however the service and food was well below average. Our food took over 35minutes to come out - pizza and a ciabatta - and our friends shepherds pie took well over 45minutes to arrive, and when it did it was small and flavourless. I... More

Briefly spent time in this pub for a few drinks but a general disappointment must be highlighted. At the entrance, the bouncer will ask to check your pockets (airport-style) besides the ID. We mainly stayed inside, ground level; downstairs there was a live session (£6 entrance). At the ground level, "TopHits" music with DJ, ambience set for informal dates or... More

Stopped in for a beer, nice selection but kitchen wss not open. Early in the evening so it was very dead, I'm staying close but I'm not sure if I will go back, I did enjoy the music selection.

Came here for a birthday gathering and just had drinks (no food). Venue itself is okay. Wide array of drinks, but pretty expensive IMO. We a few tables reserved for the group but a short time into the night a staff member told me to move from a table as they were removing it for the night. At this moment... More

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
