“Great after theater dinner”
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!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

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!”
Reviewed August 11, 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”
Reviewed July 28, 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.
