A wonderful, real place local and at the same time a specialty beer pub. Nothing fancy about the interior - I like it that way, and nothing fancy about the beer list on the blackboard. Only the beer itself, which is rare and changing often. I have only been there twice, but both times I had one outstanding and new beer. Doesn’t happen in every London pub...
ma sono stato da dio. grande accoglienza e locale veramente gestito alla grande. simpaticissimo il proprietario mi ha anche offerto 1 sidro di mele. è stato l unico publican ad offrirmi da bere a londra. grande grazie !!!
Visited the 17the April 2015 - This pub looks like as a typical british pub. The place is friendly and ambiance is ok. The staff is great and friendly. About the beer selection you will mainly find british ale with good price. A must to visit to see the british pub life style.
Finally got to the Wenlock after many years of meaning to go. Stepped in and was faced with an old style boozer, with a simple spartan lay out, old fellas propping up one side of the tables, local geezers at the bar and a couple of the more contemporary hipster types at a couple of tables. Front of the bar featured about 8 cask taps (2 weren’t on), then hidden down the side there are about 10 keg taps. My visit didn’t get off to a great start. Surly girl at the bar’s reply when I asked if anything was fresh on ’dunno?’, shrug. Body language translation. ’Don’t know, don’t care, fuck off.’ Eventually managed to speak to the guy there who was more forthcoming. He pointed out the pub had been closed on the previous day, so nothing would be that fresh. Tried Graffitti IPA and it was pretty damn good considering. Hophead too, although Dark Star APA less so. Prices were pretty good for London. 3 pints and a Coke for £13. Probably won’t go out of my way to come here as it’s not near me, but aside from the surly service, a nice boozer, with a local old fashioned feel, that you don’t get in many places. Will come again if in the area though.
Very old school boozer in islington. If your into old school pubs with decent beer this is worth checking out. Very clem and tidy and the service is always with a smile. Beer selection ok, a good selection of hand pumps , craft kegs and a few bottles/cans in the fridge. Nice little place.
10 years ago, when this was pretty much the only show in town, I always wanted to visit, but never got round to it. Glad I finally did: lovely fixtures and fittings, nice big windows. Feels like a very old pub, but has a great line up of real ale and a young clientele, speckled with working class older gentlemen. Charming.
Used to spend ages in the old Wenlock, finally made it to the reopened version. Same old interior, rather different surroundings in terms of housing! Customers actually not too obnoxious, still a very friendly place to drink. Decent cask selection in terms of numbers although I felt the range was a bit dull with too many unexciting golden ales on this visit.
