Tris C left this review about The Edgar Wallace

This was originally the Essex Head with the current name dating from I know not when. It's not that big inside so drinking was undertaken on the narrow pavement on my one visit in the early 2000s. Given the close proximity to both the Temple and RCJ, it's unsurprisingly very popular with lawyers, if you like that sort of thing.

Nice exterior with leaded square windows. The interior is quite small with the walls covered in adverts and the ceiling covered in beer mats. 7 real ales on during my visit.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Edgar Wallace

An interesting traditional pub, with an array of memorabilia around all the walls and ceilings covered in pump clips and beer mats. Eight ales on chrome handpumps on our visit. We tried a couple of halves, which were Crouch Vale Brewers Gold and their Edgar Wallace. Both beers were in fine fettle, the downside was they cost £4.60. The pub is only open Mon - Fri.
