|I visited the Wenlock last night for a session. The pub seems to be going for more of a trendy feel these days and the clientele is a bit more well heeled than previously. But it's more popular than ever and finding a table was difficult. The ale range was just as good as ever and there are still a few real ciders in addition to some craft/keg options. Real ales last night were Dark Star American Pale Ale, Hackney American Pale Ale, Marble Chocolate Marble, New River Riverbed Red & London Tap, Tyne Bank Sorachi Dollar, Windsor & Eton Guardsman, Mighty Oak Oscar Wilde & Thornbridge Jaipur. Ciders were Handmade Crazy Diamond & Browns, Seacider Hardcore & Thatchers Cheddar Valley. They also had Olivers Perry. Still an excellent pub that has survived the test of time.|

|A tremendous pub! A real ale oasis in the area. The Wenlock is full of character. No frills and certainly nothing fancy or overly trendy. This place is what you might expect in the old East End! A mix of clientèle (gender and age) make for a variety of conversation and opinions.|
A great selection of real ales including several Dark Star beers, Windsor & Eton Guardsman & Zinzans Drop, Oscar Wilde & Southwark Gold. In addition there was a good choice of ciders!
I had a couple of Dark Star beers and a Guardsman all of which were of top standard.
A must visit if you're in the area and well worth making the effort if you're not!

|Visited last Saturday night when there was an excellent Northern Soul night on. Wonderful mix of friendly locals and an outstanding range of extremely well-kept ales. This attractive and well-managed place is a gem. |
Oh, and watch out in case you get short measure. I did and before I could point it out, a big bloke next to me at the bar did so on my behalf. "There's a right way and a wrong way to do things..." he growled at the barman... who didn't hang about at correcting the situation. Super place!

|First time back at the Wenlock for quite a while on Sunday. I'm sure I've posted a review since the refurbishment. But the interior is certainly much improved. There are 10 constantly changing ales. On Sunday these were Dark Star Hophead & American Pale Ale, Southwark 5 Hop & Gold, Black Jack Archer, Five Points Derailed Porter & Five Points Pale, Hobsons Champion Mild, Siren Sound Wave & Independence APA. There are also 6 ciders - Abrahalls Medium Dry, Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon, Farmhouse Scrumpy & Dog Dancer, Olivers Perry & Barbourne Sweet Kernel. Still a really good pub, worth visiting.|

|We hadn't visited The Wenlock since it was refurbished a year or so back. Prior to that I'd become somewhat fed up with the place, and had fallen out with the "Save The Wenlock" crowd for describing the old place as a "sh*thole" on their Facebook site. The much need refurbishment hadn't in any way changed the basic character of the place - a "proper" pub with an excellent and imaginative range of real ales. Yes, it was quiet in there since it was a Thursday afternoon - would we return? Certainly! |
