CAMRA beer, cider & perry festival at The Wenlock Arms off City Road on 29th and 30th October. Landlord mentioned a prize winning welsh perry and a two year old Kingston Black. It's in the upstairs room and is free to get in. I think this may be my favourite pub. On a saturday afternoon with the racing on (sound down) a pint of real cider with a black pudding and Mustard doorstep sandwich? Anyone fancy it?
We did. We drank several pints of that very nice, rather strong cider (New Forest Cider Company's 2 year old Kingston Black ) it was superb - very smooth and very complex. We also had some perry from the same maker, again it was very good. We also had some Heck's medium cider, another thumbs up for this.
The Wenlock is a nice place, I wish there were more pubs in London like that, and I wish it was in SE1. You get a good mixed crowd, top beers, fantastic doorstep sandwiches, and they do quizes (although some people take them very seriously) and they usually put on some entetainment on a Saturday night.
