|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! |

|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!|
