Drink at the Edgar Wallace

Named after crime writer, journalist, novelist, screenwriter, and playwright Edgar Wallace, the Edgar Wallace in Essex Street, WC2, is a lovely city ales pub, just a stone's throw from Fleet Street, Temple Inn and the Strand.

Your author had a very pleasant evening there last night, sampling a range of ales with old friends. The food looked good, and reasonably priced, and there was a relaxed, uncrowded atmosphere, even though it was a Thursday night and other pubs in the area were overflowing onto the street with lawyers.

  1. I think you are heroic, forcing yourself to eat and drink for the sake of the blog and your readers :) This is an amazing literary contribution which I, for one, am very grateful.

    I am in London every second July but I had never heard of the Edgar Wallace. It is a very cultivated city that names its watering holes after men of letters.

  2. It was very much a case of get home from pub at half eleven, think "oh piss, what am I going to write about?" and then think...oh yeah, how about the pub I have just been in for about three hours?
