I've used challenger with success in English ESB's and Barley Wines.

Challenger is very versatile for all manner of English ales.

There's a great recipe for Coniston Bluebird that's just two-row, a handful of crystal, and just Challenger hops. I made it with S-04 and it was terrific - maybe the most popular beer I've made. It's from either Clone Brews or Beer Captured, but I found the recipe via Google.
