Stop by the Wenlock Arms

Time for another pub, and this one is a favourite of ale drinkers on the Islington/Hoxton borders. The Wenlock Arms has frequently been voted as a Campaign for Real Ale pub of the year.

The Wenlock Arms opened in 1836, and has survived intact since then, being thankfully passed over by the Second World War bombings which blighted the area. For a central London pub, it's maintains a pleasingly local, community feel, with a range of good real ales, a quiz, a cricket team and a football team. There's also jazz on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

  1. Yes the Wenlock Arms is a fine old pub.Good beer and service, friendly and relaxed.

    It's location is very central for those interested in walking the streets that my good friend Charles Dickens frequented while living in that area one hundred and fifty years ago.

  2. Curses! The Wenlock is a fairly well kept secret. Good beer, a shaggy dog, old man jazz (you can join in if you ask nicely, and are good) and excellent beer.
