Do you like having to yell at your friends when you go out drinking together? Fine, it’s your shout. We like to cater for everybody, so we’ve put together a list of ten places where talking is easier – ideal for those quiet catch-ups or maybe even date night.

A fish specialist in a glass pavilion overlooking Southwark Cathedral and Borough Market. It's been going since 1999, so it must be doing something right. The menu goes from beer-battered fish and chips, grilled/steamed sardines, mackerel, tuna steak, swordfish and sea bream to Thai fish cakes with sweet chilli sauce, smoked haddock rarebit, moules mariniere and grilled lobster with chips and garlic butter. Seafood not your thing? There's bruschetta (without anchovies), chicken liver parfait, steaks and a veggie dish of the day, too. A couple of cocktails are available, alongside a wine list with an understandable focus on whites.
