Arrived at bar for friends engagement drinks early Sarurday evening. Went to bar to get our drinks and, after waiting 15 minutes without being served, told the bar man that we were next after he started serving the man next to us. He was unbelievably rude and aggressive towards us. I asked if the manager was around to speak to... More

This was an average pub. Just stayed for a couple it was quite empty when we visited on a Saturday night so didn't have much of an atmosphere.

My visit to Wenlock and Essex was after diner, so I can't tell much about the food, buy what I can say is that the cocktails are tasty and for a very reasonable price. This modern looking pub mixes perfectly a large space for sitting down and chatting with a small but colorful and fun dance floor. I had a... More

It's worth coming to this pub on Essex Road for the decor alone. It's like something out of Twin Peakes! Red walls and interesting ceiling lighting give this place a really vintage vibe. Would recommend stopping in for a drink - the food is not bad, but the interior is this place's USP

For value for money its hard to beat nice fresh pizza good choice and great value! Friendly staff and good choice of Beers and Cider make this a good stop. Sunshine trap out the front in summer seals the deal! Very Good !!

Pizza was below average, I think I could have done a much better job just making it myself. We thought we would just try it via deliveroo, don't think we will be ordering from them again. It's edible, enjoyable however? Maybe not...

We came here for a private party and we're really impressed by the pizza. I believe it is sourdough crust but it was the perfect thickness and wonderfully made. The chips were awesome too! Plus the staff made us feel safe even with a small baby.

Wasn't expecting the burger to be as tasty as it was and after trying a few in other places nearby we want another. It was very rare but very tasty. We might ask for it to be cooked just a little more but that's down to our taste, otherwise it was a winner. Good vibe place for a drink...haven't tried... More
