Lovefilm

Love Lovefilm

I get all the TV series here, the Wire, Dexter etc. Compared to Netflix which is rubbish Lovefilm have tons & tons of films & TV programs, including some fairly obscure UK TV series. They are quick too, I get my next Dexter about 3 days after Ive sent it back.

Squaremeal

Invaluable resource

You can look up restaurants/bars by location, facilities & cuisine. When you live in London (as I do) its great to have somewhere reliable to look. Only problems are a lot of restaurants/bars are missing & ALL reviews are good which is just not possible.

John Lewis

Always reliable, but deliveries can take a while

It would be good if they had more/better pictures, but other than that I cant fault them.

Secret Escapes

Great website

This is my second review (the first one vanished), so its shorter. Secret escapes has some brilliant deals, & the website is total travel porn. Well worth signing up.

Great! Thanks James. Sorry your first review has gone missing.

Go Modern Furniture

Very good products, good to deal with

Ive bought several things from Go Modern & so far have been very pleased with them all. Their staff are helpful, they know their stuff & have been able to make sure that the things I bought actually go with each other.

Webtogs

What can I dsay? Agree with the other reviews.

Fast, good stuff, good website. Like them a lot.

Jaeger

OH wanted me to post with how impressed she is with Jaeger

The clothing is fantastic quality, delivery is fast & efficient, & returns are easy. It would be 5 stars but they are so expensive...but worth it.

Ryanair

Awful. Filthy planes, disgusting food, second rate.

And not even cheap. GF & I went to Morrocco for Christmas & this was the most convenient flight out there, & although it wasnt cheap to buy it felt cheap. Easyjet felt like luxury after Ryanair.
And is it me or is their baggage weight limit REALLY low?

Amazon

Always a pleasure buying from Amazon

Ive bought loads from Amazon & its great. Everything arrives really quickly & their selection is vast. Prices are usually about as good as it gets too.

Ocado

If only they actually had Waitroses range...

So close but yet so far. So many things about Ocado are good, mainly the fact that the products are from Waitrose, delivery is good, etc etc. BUT it is impossible to get so many of the things I want there Ive given up. Waitrose have an amazing range but these guys deliver less than half of it. I see Waitrose listed with Ocado, Tesco etc, off to check if they do deliveries...

Orange

Dreadful. Ripoff.

I ordered broadband & they installed it. Except it didnt work, & after spending HOURS & HOURS on the phone to their moronic customer service staff I gave up & told them to forget it, I didnt want it.
Then (and this part is my fault) they charged me £5 a month which I didnt notice, & when I noticed & cancelled the broadband (that had never worked) they sent me a bill for £50!
Needless to say phone calls got me nowhere. I used to really like Orange, but now it seems they are just as seedy & dishonest as the rest of them.

Waterstones

Actually I really liked dealing with them...

My books arrived as ordered, & were exactly what I wanted. Perhaps I got lucky, but I would buy from them again.
