oh dear, what a terrible place. First pint of Pride cloudy - had to give it back, end of barrel, so Pride was off. Ever heard of changing the barrel? Extremely unfriendly bar staff, who seemed to be running a competition to see who could fill the pint up least. Then got angry when it was pointed out! Gets ridiculously crowded with office lemmings so even getting to the gents becomes an obstacle course. I will never set foot in this pub ever again.

Quite lively and atmospheric in the early evening, I visited here for the history alone and wasn't expecting much else, it at least managed to exceed those expectations. Usual bored young bar staff you'd expect in this kind a place.

Bit apprehensive about popping into this place as I feared that it would be a tourist trap. However, I was wrong. Good selection of ales on the bar and the friendly chap serving let us try before we bought. Wide meal selection too if you want to eat.

I believe the Wenlock is due for a change in ownership. The GBG is always cautious about such matters.

The Eagle is one of those new-fangled old-fangled pubs. The menu is Traditional British art very untraditional prices (such as 7 for a sandwich!). There is a fairly interesting selection of about 5 ales, which are served in "dimple" glasses in a typically
self conscious touch of retro. Can get extremely crowded.

After being immortalised by a Victorian lyricist in the words of the "Pop Goes The Weasel" nursery rhyme, The Eagle is one of the most famous pubs in London. Thus it enjoys a reputation almost entirely at odds with the experience on offer in the 21st century. At first glance I know it can appear quite intimate and welcoming, with a slightly rustic charm. However the service is almost always lousy, the quality of the beer very often disappoints, and with thousands of office workers nearby it is very often uncomfortably busy. More than once I have also seen rats running around the beer garden. Mercifully this is not in my 2009 copy of the Good Beer Guide; if it has made it into another year's edition, I can only assume this is down to someone at CAMRA taking the piss on their last day.
