Hello Britain! London restaurants and pubs of London!

Seems like I give a lot of love to the French, no? Time for some love for the Brits!

When I was a child long ago, my parents took me with them on a trip to London. If I were ever to make it back, I would be totally lost, not knowing where to even start. Trying to find a good place to eat would probably be a disaster that I don't even want to imagine. So if you were going to visit, say, London if you haven't been for a very long time, or maybe you are taking your first trip there and want to know where to go, what would you do? would you trust a site that was pushing tourism or would you want the opinions of people who live there or have been where you plan to be?

Your friend Spin has a great answer for you, at QYPE! For instance, click on restaurants to see what's available in the UK. If you want to see London restaurants, click here. If you want to plan a pub crawl in London, you could plot out from start to end your route.

Here's what is so awesome about this site: It has reviews written by people who have been to these places and can help either steer you clear of a bad experience or help you find the most fun around.

Say you want to find prime rib in West End. In the Search For field, type in "prime rib" then "West End" in the Where? field. It pulls up all results, in the case of West End, just one and then has an overall rating for the place. If you want more details, you can read individual reviews. If you go to the restaurant, you can add your own review to let others know what you thought.

Qype also adds a handy map that you can print and take with you so you can be sure to find the Restaurants London, or Pubs London with the best ale with the best service and not get lost.

I typed in "Guy Ritchie's pub" and of course, since there is no pub with that name, it tells you that there are no results. but if you scroll down a little, you'll see listings in the reviews mentioning his ownership.

Another handy feature is on the right side where other pubs and bars are listed that are within the same area and tells you how far away they are.

So, Qype is Spin approved, being easy to use with terribly useful features like maps and customer reviews. Someday when I get back to London, I'm going to use Qype to plot my takeover of the city. Look it up here!
