“Chilli Nuts Hot !!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

A fabulous pub with a delightful ambience.Ask for a 'bat of beer' - three small glasses of beer allowing you to taste the excellent beers.Two 'bats' will cover the pump beers on offer and it will 'soften' you up to try the hot chilli nuts located at the end of the bar!

A must for walkers, visitors and beer lovers - but don't rub your eyes after eating the chilli nuts !

“Really busy but fantastic atmosphere ”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

We walked up from the lodges along the dark scary road but the welcome and bright lights of Wainwrights was worth it. Really busy, staff were excellent and helpful. Food on the pricey side but excellent and plentiful. Really good atmosphere especially after the rather formal expensive Purdeys restaurant. Excellent pub - we will be back

“Good pub, great beer and tasty food served by helpful smiling staff - complete success”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

After being let down by the nearby Brimstone, and disappointed because of that, we didnt have the most positive mindset when we arrived in the pub.

No matter! Everything was great, from friendly service to their "Bat of Beer" which lets you have three different beers (1/3 pint each) for the price of a pint, onto great food choice which was brought to us promptly and was really tasty.

The lamb shank did exactly what it said on the tin - their speciality - it was really REALLY good.

The staff couldn't do enough to help, big credit to all of them. We will definitely be back!
