The Edgar Wallace is a handsome, but deceptively pokey pub once you get inside, which, as a result, gets gets crowded pretty quickly at the usual post-office times. Given the area, the number of suits should come as no surprise but it's rarely overbearing and they head off to their domiciles pretty quickly after work. There is an upstairs function room with bar (which can be hired) offering some breathing space, but expect this to be occupied most Friday evenings. The star attraction at the Edgar Wallace, however, is the excellent range of fine ales on the hand pumps - eight of them, hosting an ever-changing cornucopia for beer-lovers. It's well kept stuff to and there's always something interesting to imbibe. There's food too, but we've not tried it for a while, we're usually too busy trying the ales. The Edgar Wallace is a tucked-away pub, but quite easy to get to, and it's well worth seeking out, especially at quiet times, to sample one or two (OK, maybe three) excellent beers with your mates.

Great selection of beers - woodforde's wherry being a superb find and even the 70's merchandising added to the glee! Good food and well priced - excellent!
