Its been a few years since I visited Elephant & Castle and it didn't disappoint when i brought my daughter and her friend for their first visit. The Chicken Wings are still legendary and are definitely worth the trip.

Elephant and Castle serve amazing wings! Highly recommend a visit. The setting is nice as well. I brought my mum there for a casual bite for her birthday, when they overheard they surprised us with a cake and candle! Really nice surprise.
