Maybe it has to do with age, but I am really starting to like community-based activities. Especially in a city as big and anonymous as London, I find it reassuring to once and in while run into familiar faces.

Lauderdale House can be such a place: I've come here to a few yoga classes, but I also know that there's a local choir meeting here for their weekly practice as well as community art...more

Despite my earlier impressions I went in here about a month ago and ate the chicken tagine served at lunchtime during the week and it was very nice. Very tasty and quite filling. Not exactly cheap but not outrageous for this part of London either.

Service a bit hit and miss but the weather was nice and I wasn't in a hurry somore

Lauderdale House is best for its chips and tea. I sit outside in all weathers to take in the incredible views of landscaped gardens and sky.

I had no idea that Lauderdale house offers so much to do. As a result of coming here as a child i thought of Lauderdale house as simply a beautiful venue for a party, but how i was wrong!!! OMG! Guitar, tango, opera and community events (celebrations for Chinese New Year) all take place here, promising to fulfil your wildest arty dreams.more
