We are The Wilmington - known locally as 'The Wilmo'

We’ve have had a bit of a face lift recently, not everything is new - if you’ve visited us in the past, you may remember us for having the best Sunday Roast in town. We can happily confirm that it’s back…but arguably, even better!

Head chef Jamie Cousins has taken the reigns, delivering an ever-evolving menu of globally-influenced dishes that celebrate the best of British ingredients as well as some very exciting specials. You can join us for brunch, lunch or dinner as well as that glorious Sunday Roast - come try it for yourself!

    Business meeting for 6 people - 5 ordered fish and chips which looked great on the plate. Chips were hard and dry- fish was too heavily battered and just tasted of batter which was overpowering - all 5 commented on how disappointing the meals were. Staff were excellent and welcoming and atmosphere was good too . such as shame the food did not perform
    The WilmingtonResponded on May 23, 2024
    Thanks for taking the time to review the venue and visit. We have passed on the feedback about the batter on the fish and the chips to the kitchen as this is way below expectations we have of ourselves. I hope you will visit us again - and I do apologise, hope to see you again. Team Wilmo

    Thanks for the review Susan - sorry to hear you did not enjoy your visit. Our team are passionate about spreading the word of our venue, and I find it a shock that the atmosphere was not up to scratch. If you wouldn't mind getting in touch and giving us more details we'd happily try put things right! Team Wilmo

    Went to the Wilmington for Sunday Roast to bring a few out of town friends and have bookmarked this place for all future visitors and for our own Sunday Roast needs. The food was reasonably priced and well portioned with a good range on the menu including vegetarian roast as well as british staples like fish and chips and scotch eggs. The Sunday Roast is available with either beef, chicken and pork. On the day we went there was also a daily special of lamb (sharer portion) and a cote de beouf as well. Unfortunately the lamb did sell out (we went for an early evening dinner) so if you want to sample the specials, I would go earlier to avoid disappointment. Scotch eggs had a lovely rich runny yolk and the pork and black pudding layers were well seasoned and cooked well. The bone marrow on toast is a gargantuan starter which is well worth the value. Particularly like that it was served with crumpets enabling you to spread in and load them up with the bone marrow. For how much bone marrow you get though, I think a couple more crumpets are needed! Staff are lovely and friendly and happy to explain anything on the menu and give good recommendations. The beer and wine selection, naturally being a pub, was great and offered well known brands as well as a good range of specialty spirits. Great atmosphere and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Kings Cross, Angel and Farringdon.

    Great Sunday roast. The table I had was a bit too cozy since it was shoved at a corner.
