List Eating & Drinking Guide 2007 review

Post by swithun » Fri Apr 27, 2007 9:26 pm

Here is the List review to save y'all from splashing out on it.

As bland identikit bars and bistros proliferate around the capital, it's a comfort to know that there are still a few scruffy independent and idiosyncratic hang-outs like The Forest left in town. A self-funded artists' collective with a relaxed cafe run by an eccentric crew of volunteers, The Forest is a chilled-out place of activity, with temporary exhibitions, film screenings, regular live music and free wi-fi. As long as you don't mind chipped mugs or clearing your own plates, it is also a great spot to scoff tasty, veggie food - recipes are simple, servings are huge and prices are very low. Soups, sandwiches or snacks such as cheese and beans on toast can all be bought for a couple of pounds, while tasty mains such as falafels and pitta with salad, chunky vegan curries or gargantuan bean-filled burritos cost only a little more and are large enough to share. Wash it all down with organic, fair trade tea and coffee, or, given the cafe's sedate service and student sitting-room vibe, make the most of the BYOB policy, grab a sofa and settle in for a few hours of booze-fueled artistic banter.
+ So much food for so little cash
- Grubby, chilly toilets

They still don't like putting their plates away. I wouldn't like to see their house.

That should be eclectic, apparently.
