Paternoster Chop House

Vegetarians should not be put off by the name - its not just chops! They source their food locally as far as possible, and what we ate had real flavour and was imaginatively prepared, which is as important for a vegetable platter as it is for steak tartare. The waiting staff were helpful and friendly and the bentwood chairs set the chop-house atmosphere. Calling this a quiet corner is somewhat of a misnomer - the place fills up after 6 pm and the hubbub of happy-hour City types would make any music inaudible.

Wykeham Arms, Winchester, United Kingdom

My brother and I called in at this pub after walking to Winchester from Alresford on a Friday in August 2009. We were very struck by the relaxed nature of the place, and the fact that there was NO MUSIC OF ANY SORT (Hallelujah!). Also of interest was that there were at least 3 dogs quietly snoozing on the floor (very rare site in any pubs I have visited in the last few years) and that the mix of people was refreshingly varied as regards age and (apparent) backgrounds. Thoroughly recommend: we noted it down immediately as 'must come back again' and 'must tell friends'.

Filmhouse Cafe/Bar, Edinburgh

A quiet relaxed place to be in the daytime, with very low levels of music playing and none atall if you're lucky. Even lunchtimes have a quiet atmosphere even though the Fimhouse is only a couple of hundred yards from Edinburgh's West End. In the evening it gets much busier and noisier with music turned up.

Main meals £5/£7 from 3pm to 5pm.

Hot and cold food available until 10pm every day. Friendly staff.
''Eleven draught beers, five real ales, twelve wines by the glass, loads of bottled beers and over thirty malt whiskies''
