Steve C left this review about Eli Jenkins

I initially believed that the Eli Jenkins is set back from the road behind a large picnic strewn paved beer garden. I later realised that I had entered through the rear garden. The interior comprises a bar on the left-hand wall that faces some high tables and stools. Standard seating and tables are found around the exterior walls and there is a small raised seating area with fireplace to the right of the front entrance. Plasma screens are located throughout for showing all sports on Sky and BT. During a recent Tuesday afternoon visit there was some background music playing, but on a subsequent Wednesday evening visit football was being shown.
Available from the polite bar staff was a range of standard and premium keg alongside cask Sharp’s Doom Bar, St Austell Tribute and Brains Rev. James. There is also a bottled craft beer selection. The food menu is straight out the back of a Brakes lorry, much like any chain pub. On the plus side it is cheap, as an example a bacon cheese burger and chips is £8.25 with an extra burger option for £1.50. I found the food to be good for the price. I would use this pub if I lived locally.

Pub conversion of old listed building overlooking the Roald Dahl Plass and with large outdoor area facing Bute Street. Reasonably pubby feel, although interior a bit cluttered. Slight emphasis on family eating, at least during the day time, but fair range of beers including Brains Rev James and Greene King IPA. Cask Marque listed.
