Square Meal Review of Wenlock & Essex ?

Islington’s party crowd loves this cavernous circus of a venue. A multitude of bulbs twinkle down from the ornate red & gold ceiling on to Chesterfield sofas & scattered wooden tables, & at weekends, the naughty neon ‘Satan’s Circus’ club hosts regular comedy, DJ sets & live music. The W&E is more about fun than food, though you can order Saturday brunch (perhaps pancake with caramelised banana, crispy bacon, maple syrup & fruit compote), Sunday lunch, & a small batch of bar snacks, sandwiches & more substantial meals during the week. Cocktails & wine are available, but beer drinkers are the best served. The pub has links to the Camden Town Brewery, so in addition to interesting bottled beers (Estrella Damm, Blue Moon, Negra Modelo), there’s Camden Hells, Pale Ale & Wheat Beer on tap.

  1. I've been a big fan of the Wenlock & Essex in Angel for a while. The original Wenlock burger debuted straight into my Top 10 Burgers in London list back in March 2012. The head chef James Morgan (the driving force behind the Wenlock's burger renaissance) has since left for pastures new and the pub dropped off my radar... ...until last week, when I spotted they'd launched a new 'triple steak' burger on the menu. Time for another visit...

  2. The Wenlock & Essex is located on Essex Road, Islington just a few minutes walk from Angel tube station. It's a quirky, circus-themed pub (and I mean design rather than contortionists and lion tamers - more's the pity) and covers an enormous low-ceiling'd ground floor area, with space for up to 250 covers. After attending the recent Advance preview of The Diner's Grab burger...
