Very welcoming to 3 adults and 2 teenagers, letting the beer drinkers try a couple of the cask ales before choosing, bringing drinks to the table when hands were full and lending us a deck of cards for a bout of cribbage. We didn’t try...More

There's aren't many pubs left in London like this so visit while you can! Just don't come here expecting a high class meal in plush surroundings - this is a traditional old-fashioned pub that appears to have changed little in the last 50 years or...More

I'd not been here for a year or two so this September Sunday evening was just the ticket. My recollection of the Wenlock is that having existed since 1835, it was rejuvenated in about 1994 into a cask ale congregation, years before any of your...More

I have a soft spot for this locals pub. It has been long known as a haunt for CAMRA (Real Ale) devotees because of the choice of proper beer available. Indeed nowadays it has its own brewery. There seems to be less choice now than...More

My first return since the refurb'. The atmosphere has changed and the whole pub seems a little less exciting. That doesn't change the fact that it is still a fantastic pub though. Great beers at sane prices.

A classic pub. Large selection of draught beers. Feels very much like a locals pub. Feels like you've walked onto the set of an East End soap.

Fantastic selection of ales and beers on draft. Clever little menu too with toasties, baked brie and PieMinster pies! Lovely original features and hand painted gold leaf signs all around. A gem for pub lovers.

This is a classic pub. You can look up the history, but basically it's one of the few success stories of local spots fighting against property developers. It's tidied up over the years (the toilets are a lot cleaner than I remember), but it's still...More

I have visited the Wenlock, on and off, for many years. It is had a substantial refurbishment recently, but the pub has been left untainted by it. Not only have the historical fixtures been retained, but they have been restored to their former glory. The...More
