The Goodwood Festival of Speed is, let’s face it, largely about petrol-chugging supercars and the heroes of motorsport. Yet there are a fair few electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in action over thi...

Booked a Luton van online, got an email the next day saying they didn't have a Luton but could give me an extra long wheelbase transit. I replied saying ok, I'll take it. Called the day before pickup and they said they can't receive incoming email so they didn't have my booking and didn't have the extra lwb transit anymore. Jokers, don't use.

Nice garden, young eclectic crowd, friendly staff and a real party atmosphere on several nights a week.

Haven't been in seince they rennovated it at the end of 2010 but outside by the canal is a great place to be on a summer's day. Quite pricey, though.

Went in around half ten on Sunday night of the August bank holiday weekend and will never return. We were looking for a place to get a drink before heading to a club so in fact we were sober and well-behaved but we were greeted by the least friendly landlady in the world, who made a point of ringing the bell for last orders before frostily asking what we wanted, as if we were inconveniencing her somehow. I felt anxious just asking her for a packet of crisps on top of the drinks. Her reaction to us asking to play pool was to let out a massive sigh and say simply, "One game only," before trudging over to flick on the light above the table. I feared for our lives when my friend asked if we could play another game. There was zero atmosphere from the handful of miserable sods scattered about the place and the place gave off a general sense of doom. I know pubs in Elephant and Castle can probably pull in the roughest wankers in the world but to have a strict policy of treating all customers like scum is not very sensible. Maybe the landlady had just got a letter telling her the business is going the toilet and she'll have to sell. It wouldn't surprise me at all. Avoid like the plague.
