Walrus and Carpenter reviews

By Andrew M.

The Walrus and Carpenter is a decent enough pub split into two upstairs rooms and a downstairs wine bar. Its recent redecoration has left it uncomfortably bright, but this should dull down with time (and nicotine). There's not a huge amount to say about the Walrus and Carpenter, the beer is average, the Lewis Carroll theme has not been exploited - it's just an ordinary City boozer.

Be very carefull with one of the bar staff, I asked to purchase cigerettes from behind the bar, he tool my money, we added a round of drinks and the barman charged us again for the cigerettes. He has no bottom teeth the barman who served us, our bang regulary uses the pub for meetings after work, never again,

Amazing food and drink selection all served a smile! Prices very reasonable for the City and everything off very good quality. Go in after just a few days and their entire real ale range will be different!

I went to the Walrus and Carpenter on Friday 11th November for lunch with five friends and I have to say that the food was terrible. I ordered the warm Halloumi salad and it was drenched with olive oil. There was literally a pool of oil at the bottom of my plate. One of my friends had a grilled chicken sandwich and the middle of the chicken was raw. I kid you not. Raw. I don't suggest that you order food from this place as you could get seriously ill! This place is good for drinks only but I wonder about the cleanliness here. If they don't pay attention to what they serve you, will they pay attention to anything else? Very disappointed.

This pub is a local to my work which i occasionally visit. It's a nice enough pub with friendly staff and a good selection of beers on tap. Good place to start a night to go onto other more bar/club places in the area or for a quick pint after work. They also have dining space upstairs which is good for traditional pub lunches with a good menu featuring the likes of fish and chips, pies, etc..

A great pub located amongst the offices at the end of Monument Street, Walrus and Carpenter is a popular haunt for those working in and around Monument.

The Venue
Surrounded by offices, Walrus and Carpenter is a great stop-off for a working lunch or an after work beverage with your colleagues. There are three entrances, the largest of which will send you down a dark flight of stairs to the Champagne cellar bar. The other two take you into the main pub area, which is traditional through and through: filled with dark woods, large medieval looking lights, and old pictures hanging on the walls.

No section of the bar has gone to waste as taps and draughts run across the whole worktop so you should find a drink to your liking. The wines and Champagnes are neatly perched behind the bar on a large gothic-like shelf with their names and prices annotated to the relevant ledge. The seating area forms an L-shape around the bar and offers up a decent amount of table space. At the end of the bar are a couple of games machines and a flight of stairs at the top of which is a dining area with table service for those who have come exclusively for the food.

The Atmosphere
With the smooth sounds of Jamie Cullum and Frank Sinatra this is the place to unwind in the evenings. The staff are extremely friendly and very forthcoming about the ales, offering a taster of the guests so long as you show some interest. The seating arrangement is comfortable as well so you don’t have to worry about the prospects of having a sore back when you decide to leave.

The Food
The Walrus and Carpenter is particularly proud of its award-winning sausages and pride themselves on sourcing their bangers from the same suppliers as Harrods and Fortnum and Mason. They offer a wide variety of sausages, each variant filled with a world of different flavours and included in a number of different dishes including toad in the hole, sausage and mash, or just in a sandwich.

Other meals include jacket potatoes for just under a fiver with a variety of fillings to choose from as well as a choice of salads for just under £7. One of the more interesting sounding meals is the fish in beer batter and chips. Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a snack you’ll almost certainly find something tempting, and if they put as much effort into the food as they have with the appearance of the menu then you’ll be very satisfied with your pub grub.

The Drink
If you like proper drinking pub’ then the Walrus and Carpenter won’t disappoint. They serve up a selection of ales, including London Pride, Green King IPA as well as two or three guest ale that rotate every couple of weeks. To make things a little more interactive, a blackboard displays four contenders for the next ale to make it into the pub. If you have a preference then you’ll be encouraged to take your vote to the bar with the possibility of having the opportunity to drink it in a couple of weeks. To make your decision a tad easier you can pick up a little booklet from the bar filled with information about the up and coming ales.

The selection of lagers on tap include Stella, Amstel Bier, Kronenberg, Fosters, Heineken, Strongbow and Carling. If you fancy a glass of wine, you can choose from the cellar fresh wine, which will come from one of two casks embedded in the wall behind the bar. Prices start from around £2.50 for a glass. If you’re celebrating something, perhaps you might like to opt for the Champagne, prices for which start at £25 and stretch up to £90.

Last Word
The menu looks superb, they have a dining area with table service, their drinks selection is top notch and the decor is warm and welcoming. There is no question; Walrus and Carpenter is a good pub.
