I thought that I would like the American Bar, or maybe even feel at home, but I can't really put my finger on what went wrong. The walls of the place are covered in pictures, in the way you would find a local diner in the States, and otherwise the décor isn't that upscale and comes off as rather contrived.

We went here several times while staying at the Stafford. The bar is decorated in sports memorabilia. I didn't spend much time outside, as you could not eat there.

The drinks are not reasonable. 14 pounds for a cocktail certainly adds up, but I'm not sure what the average is in the UK.

The food was delicious. I...more
