|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! |

|Visited this famous pub for the first time yesterday and frankly was somewhat underwhelmed. Nice range of ales, the Firebrand Stout was particularly nice. However, on a Saturday afternoon it elt more like a private locals' club rather than a pub. Wouldn't goout of my way to visit it again.|

|I love this pub. I wish we had pubs like this where I live! I stopped by today (Sunday) about lunchtime on the way back home. It's a proper, no pretensions, down-to-earth pub. There were about 8 ales on, I think. I was on my bike so only had a pair of halves of Oscar Wilde mild and Mighty Oak porter but both were in tip top condition. Other beers included Dark Star's Hophead and Festival, the Pale Ale from Five Points, and some others I can't remember. Food is good, basic, this-is-a-pub-not-a-restaurant food: toasted sandwiches, pork pie with piccalilli, scotch eggs and the like; no overpriced burgers here! There are not enough pubs like this around. Cherish it, use it, keep it going!|

|An oasis in the area but a most welcome one for those seeking good real ale in an unpretentious setting.|
There is always a wide range of ales available and the staff are friendly.
Basic furnishings and bare floorboards this is not a pub pandering to the trendy or the tourist trade, (they've got plenty of pubs to pick from anyway).
Hopefully the Wenlock will return to the CAMRA GBG where it belongs!
Well worth a visit!

|Exactly the kind of pub that would make me want to move back to London. Great range of beers, a pork pie with real piccallili and I'm a happy man ! Just feels like a proper pub. Not up itself at all.|
