The Best British Pubs with Rooms by Adrian Mourby

"Just two doors down from the famous Hackney Empire, the Old Ship Inn is a real East End pub accessed down an old tiled passageway that’s been decorated with cheery murals which make it less daunting on a dark evening. Inside the welcome is warm and the pub food is excellent. The Old Ship Inn dates from the first half of the nineteenth century but in 2014 it was taken over and reopened by Nick Pring and Malcolm Heap as one of their ten Urban Pubs & Bars enterprise.

Bedrooms are located up a steep staircase and on either side of a winding corridor. The upstairs layout probably hasn’t changed since the 1800s. Bedrooms are compact and mostly understated (apart from the one with an entire wall given over to a black and white photo of a donkey being given a pint of beer to sup). Breakfast in the open-plan bar is hearty amid cheerfully distressed décor. Guests sit on old school chairs marvelling at the list of beers etched in white chalk on the walls.

The Old Ship is wonderfully located for visiting the Tudor mansion Sutton House, the neoclassical Church of St John Hackney, the eighteenth-century Clapton Square and of course Hackney Empire itself, home of great British pantomimes since 1988. It’s also a good place to stop over if you have an early flight from London City airport. A bland airport hotel this most certainly isn’t!"

Our pick of the best UK literary festivals by Dinah Hatch

"The urban cool one: Stoke Newington Literary festival, London, June 3-5. Because not everyone fancies trekking out into the middle of nowhere, I thought I’d throw in the Stokey Lit festival, the spiritual home of Hipsters everywhere, and a new chapter in the festival calendar since 2014 (see what I did there?). Last year’s star turns included big-brained Will Self, Fay Weldon, Mark Thomas, Yasmin Alibhai Brown and journalist Zoe Williams so expect some similarly cool, smart and wordy people this year (the line-up is not yet published). This being Stoke Newington, leave the Fedora at home and wear your best beanie and moustache-less beard please. The festival’s not just about books, mind. It describes itself as an annual celebration of literature, music, science, political debate, comedy and art. Imagine what’s going on inside the editor of the Guardian’s head, basically, and that’s pretty much what you’ll see here. Don’t forget your muesli! Stay at The Old Ship Inn in Hackney opposite the Hackney Empire which combines tradition with comfort – think excellent Sunday roasts and fabulous bang-up-to-date deluxe rooms."

Britain’s Finest Tour de France hotels by Dinah Hatch

"Right across the road from the famous Hackney Empire in London’s East End, book a room at the Old Ship and you will be within easy reach of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which the riders will sweep into in the final hour of Stage 3. This cracking traditional British inn combines London’s rich history with the 21st century punter’s need for great food and drink and comfortable lodgings. It serves excellent craft beers, classic British Sunday roasts and features a whole feast of seasonally sourced goodies on the menu. Check out the v cool deluxe double’s décor where free wifi, flat screen TV and comped tea and shortbreads are standard."

10 Best London Wine Bars by Adrian Mourby

"London is one of the most exciting places in the world to go out drinking. And drinking is a fine way to spend an evening as long as you’re sensible. In London, there are watering holes to cater for just about every taste. The problem is choosing the right bar.

Some people suffer from FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). I suffer from FOPIS (Fear the Other Place is Better). You’ve no sooner sat down with your pint, cocktail, or glass of wine when the horrible doubt creeps over you, like a billowing grey cloud of doubt: what if the venue you passed two doors down was better?

That’s where personal recommendations come in handy. And that’s what I’m offering here in this selection of unique London wine bars.

If you like wine and want to drink it in some interesting places - rather than cookie-cutter bars devoid of individual character - then here are ten that I can personally recommend to a London visitor.

I’ve spent happy times in them all. There’s a wide range here too so choose the one that suits your taste – and wines that do the same."
