The Hive now has smart location based functions making it rival Tado
The smart thermostat market is really heating up in the UK (sorry for the pun). We have already reviewed the excellent Tado, and previously blogged about the BT owner Hive, plus Google’s Nest is now available in the UK along with several other smaller companies. We previously commented on how Tado was superior to the [&hellip

For the past six years hip hop celebrity endorsed headphones have promised a better listening experience for the consumer. There’s some debate among music fans about whether the sound quality is there, or whether they’re more of a fashion statement than anything else, but one thing is certainly true: they continue to dominate the headphone [&hellip

If we gave you the simple answer to that question, this would be the shortest article in history. So let’s start by agreeing that wearable technology is not merely a passing fad and does most definitely have a future. But what makes it such an important technological advance and how do we best utilise this [&hellip

Microsoft have released the launch day line up for the XBOX One. It isn’t bad, though it isn’t the best with a lot of games being ports from current gen titles. Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (Ubisoft, Ubisoft) Battlefield 4 (DICE, Electronic Arts) Call of Duty: Ghosts (Infinity Ward, Activision) Crimson Dragon (Grounding/Land Ho!, Microsoft [&hellip

Cartford is a great pub to go for food. It is a little expensive and has a slightly pretentious feel about it but the quality of the food always justifies it.

Delicious cakes and cupcakes that are a bargain on a Friday for £1 a cupcake!

We came across here while heading to Brew Dog, glad we found it as I personally preferred the place. The beer is good with a great selection of craft beers at OK prices. We popped in for food one lunch, and it wasn't the best American/BBQ we have had but it was good. The burnt end baked beans were probably the best bit. Service was decent, and the atmosphere was good too.

We had ice cream from a couple of places during our visit and this was hands down the best, as well as having the best selection of flavours and being reasonably priced.

We went for one cocktail just to try it out, I had a beer and my SO had some cocktail. It was £8 for the cocktail but was the smallest serving I have ever seen, but it was very nice and made is stay a little longer. We had another couple of beers which were all craft rather than generic mass produced, and 2 more cocktails, with beers costing around £4.50, and cocktails around £8. The beer was surprisingly cheap considering the venue and its popularity. Overall the place is a little pretentious but the drinks were good, if a little pricey, and music and service was good (especially with it being so busy). We would definitely go again.

I had high hopes for the place but I was very disappointed. The food itself was nice, even though my Girlfriend ordered a Jerk Chicken sandwich which came without any sign of the jerk. The portion sizes were all quite small, I had the American Club and the bagel it came on was small even for bagel standard. This wouldn't be an issue for a light lunchtime meal normally but this cost £7 without any sides. The bacon fries I had on the side were nice but were just a small bowl of cheap skinny fries that had some nice bacon mayo on top with a small bit of crushed up bacon, this cost £3.80. Lastly service was shocking, we made a reservation and the girl that served us was unsure about it, but eventually sat us on a shared table in a tiny room with hardly any space between the other tables. It then took over 40 minutes to get our food. Admittedly it was a busy Saturday but I don't see how there can be such a long wait for such a basic meal.

We stayed for one night at the weekend. It was priced at about the same as a travelodge but the pictures looked nicer and the location was perfect for us. Checking in was a little slow as the pub was busy when we arrived and someone had to come from the bar. The room we got was quite small, the main room area was only slightly wider than the bed itself, but it was the cheapest room. The bed was very comfy and it was decorated to a high standard. The bathroom was also really nice. Even though it was a small room it was considerably nicer than most other cheap hotels we have stayed at. The pub itself was also really nice and the breakfast was excellent.
