We asked you: what totally cheesy place in London do you guiltily love? Here’s what you confessed to…

‘Mecca Bingo in Dagenham – went with my wife “ironically”, wound up staying for the high-stakes drama.’

‘I genuinely love Pizza Express.’

‘Namco Funscape on the South Bank: classic arcade games, indoor dodgems and Pac-Man air hockey. Wash it all down with a slush puppy and a giant hot dog. It’s a big kid’s dream.’

‘It’s a tie: Wetherspoons at Canary Wharf or the London Dungeon.’

‘The Swan in Stockwell. Though you have to be very drunk to ignore the smell.’

‘Roadhouse in Covent Garden: the world’s cheesiest bar.’

‘The Monarch in Camden. I’ve only ever been there when completely drunk, but I’ve never had a bad time!’

‘Westfield. I know I’m a terrible person.’

‘I love Infernos and met the love of my life there one night. We sometimes even go back for anniversaries!’

Now read and learn as Londoners reveal their most valuable London life lessons.
