“Great after theater dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We did a lunch time theater show and went looking for some good food afterwards. A pub meal was most appealing to the group so we ended up at the E&W. The food was good, service was froiendly and the price was great.

“Great food - quaint pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

We ate here for a couple of nights. The pub is based on an English hotel and carries a wide variety of lagers, stouts and ales. The food is sensational based around pub grub but a 300gm porterhouse was probably close to the best I have ever had.....
Do yourself a favor and eat very well at a reasonable price....

“A pint of Fosters short of five stars!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Had a really enjoyable Sunday afternoon at the Elephant and Wheelbarrow. It has the feel of a genuine English pub with carpet and dark painted walls, with English beers on tap. The food was great (yes it is pub food - but it is unmistakably a pub) including an English Ploughmans which was terrific. There was a really pleasant homely atmosphere, which is different and more appealing than you would get in a bar.
One quibble, whilst there was an authentic feel about the place, without Fosters on tap, it can't completely be considered an English pub!

“A good Pub meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Typical Pub, find a table, put your order in at the bar. A good selection of both beers and wines. Meals are served reasonably quickly, are flavourful, maybe a touch over cooked in a couple of the chicken meals, but generally quite good.
