Nice dťcor, mostly involving posters, eight cask ales on, probable ticks available on a regular basis. Good.

Located just of the Strand this place has always been fairly quiet when Iíve visited on a weekday evening. Service good, but atmosphere a little lacking. Have awarded a 3 in this respect as at least itís not a bad atmosphere a la rough spoons! Good range of well kept cask ales - 9 or 10 sticks on offer. Worth popping by if in the area or on a crawl but not a destination bar! Update - visit on 10/10/13. Fairly busy for 4.30pm and not one table free inside, but not overly packed. 7 or 8 casks available, nothing from what Iíd call the newer/more exciting brewers but a decent enough selection and some new rates for me.

A cosy and atmospheric pub with a decent selection of real ales on offer. They had a couple of beers from Red Squirrel when I visited and it went down very well. I believe the house beer is from Nethergate.

This place is maddeningly inconsistent. Sometimes youíll find a nice selection of Crouch Vale beers available, at other times theyíll have a bunch of crap on cask. Unfortunately my last visit here was pretty underwhelming. Apart from Crouch Vale Brewers Gold, they had a bunch of boring bitters from Shepherd Neame and Everards on. Unfortunately the condition of the beer isnít always great. Otherwise, the ambiance here is pretty spare. The food is bog standard pub fare (frozen beef patties for their burgers etc). The valueís fine for central London. Overall, this place is worth a look in if youíre on a crawl, but itís not a destination pub. Temper your expectations.

I like the place. Good real ales in a very good condition. What can you ask for more? (2009, 2011).

Nothing particularly spectacular about the pub itself but the beer range is good, with an excellent chance of some scoops. Seven handpumps usually include Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and the house beer, which is a rebadge of Nethergate IPA. Expect it to be busy with lawyers after work hours during legal term time. Closed at weekends. Some other decent pubs in the immediate vicinity add to the attraction.

This place LOOKS fantastic. Lots of granny chairs and benches fitted into cosy corners, giving it a very home like feeling. The beer, well, thatís something else. The casks were nothing special and the drafts are all Heineken, Kronenbourg, Stella, ... Didnít try the food, but saw a lot of plates coming out of the kitchen, they didnít look too bad. The staff doesnít give a ratís ass about you or your interest in beer, they just want you to order quick, pay quick and be out of their way. Except when youíre a regular. Saw one of the suits grabbing some waitress ass and he got away with it. :p A good place to chill down after a day of walking in the area, but not exactly a must visit beer spot.

A very decent pub with a nice range of cask ales and good food offerings. Iíve been here a handful of times and I have always found something new to try. The pub is charming and the staff is efficient and friendly. Prices are par for the course. I would say one of the top ten pubs to visit in Central London (probably around number nine or so).

Great beer selection + knowledgable staff + good food = high rating. Points deducted for being full of lawyers most of the time.

SarÚ di parte, ma quando ero a Londra andavo sempre a bere una birra a mezzogiorno al Edgar Wallace Pub. Il proprietario Ť di una simpatia e di una accoglienza unica. Le birre le ho trovate sempre in gran forma, una buona gamma in perfetto stile britannico. Verso le 17 il locale scoppiava di gente e lž ho conosciuto tantissime persone. Un posto davvero bellissimo con un clima fantastico.
