TQ3283 : Wenlock Arms

taken 13 years ago, near to Shoreditch, Islington, Great Britain

Wenlock Arms
Wenlock Arms
This is the Wenlock Arms in Wenlock Rd located a stone throw from the City Road. A rare survival in central London; a real “Local” and a proper free house to boot. In former times it would have served the stevedores working in the Wenlock basin off the Grand Union Canal, it now has a more diverse clientele. The salt beef sandwiches are world famous in Islington! See LinkExternal link

2014 update this gem nearly fell into the hands of property developers when the owners decided to retire. However a campaign by the locals managed to save it. I have not been there since the relaunch (however I do hope they have pensioned off the carpet ;-) )
