    The Wenlock and Essex has reams of fantastic drinks, a reassuring home-cooked feel to its generously proportioned food and a striking layout that caters for both boozy afternoons and late night partying. Definitely worth a visit.

    Time Out Says…

    The cocktail list is classic and concise, with mai tais, margaritas and martinis all at £7, while wines are confined to half a dozen reds and whites. The great draughts include wheat beers and lager from Bavaria, a Canadian IPA, a couple of cask ales and a trio of fine brews from Camden Town Brewery; bottles cover a similar geographical spread.
