Wenlock Arms

Wenlock Arms

It went away for a bit, but now it's back - and, some might say, better than ever. This old stalwart of the London drinking scene may have been cleaned up but the beer remains plentiful and interesting. There are 10 cask ales (including, on a recent visit, beers from Dark Star and Five Points) and some keg beers, too - such as Budvar Yeast, the unfiltered, unpasteurised version of the Czech classic, Windsor and Eton Republika and Portobello's Pilsener. Hard-boiled eggs (£1) are available, too.
