berkshirejohn  (202) Bracknell, England | January 15, 2016
A cathedral to beer; with an exceptional number of casks available. There’s often a theme to the selection available - a brewer, a region or a style. Very busy at lunchtimes, but with good service.

Boudicca  (1085) London, England | April 10, 2015
A Wetherspoon pub with the wow factor. The building (possibly an old bank?) is terrific with its large open space, marble columns and impressive cupolas. The bar is oval and when we visited it was topped with an atmospheric display depicting the Jura distillery with the Paps of Jura behind and stormy seas all around. There’s also a fixed tableau of a rustic bourbon shack high up on a ledge. To top it all, the beer list was excellent - 25 or so beers on tap all listed on television screens over the bar - and the service was clued up and helpful. It must rank amongst the best ‘spoons and is definitely worth a visit but beware that it can get very busy around lunchtime. (Visited 26 March 2015).

Large Spoons in the City, presumably an old bank or the likes, visited on Friday 27/03/15 around 4.20pm during the Spring BF. The pub itself is certainly one of the chains more aesthetically pleasing examples, tall ceilings, large single room with a couple of annexes and a large circular bar towards the rear centre that exudes character. A great place to come for the fest beers, they had about 22 on during my visit and these are listed on a beer menu laid out around the bar, you simply order buy number (but if there was one complaint they had their own numbering system 1-22, would have been better if these actually tied into the festival numbers!). On my arrival the place was busy but not packed, the 3 members of staff were working hard and I got my beers within 2 or 3 minutes. However when I returned to the bar at about 4.35/40 pm the place was swamped, I waited 5 minutes and there were still 5 or 6 people in front of me and the same 3 members of staff were attempting to run a bar that was beginning to become overwhelmed by thirsty city types. Severely understaffed so I gave up and left. Sure - it’s Friday in the City but they simply didn’t have half the staff required to deal with this! I’d definately head back here but it would be a weekend or non evening visit. £3.35 a pint for anyone who may be shocked at London prices.

ThirstyBird  (39) Berkhamsted, England | March 19, 2015
An interesting pub with a hug cavernous space. The bar itself feels a bit small in the space. It is filled marble, wood, big windows and lots of carpeting. I was here for a Wetherspoons festival. The service was barely adequate, the beer was OK but not great. The selection on the other hand was quite good.

Fin  (836) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | March 15, 2015
We (me, dad and Barry) visited here on Friday 13th March 2015, we were heading to Rotterdam on the Eurostar and Thayls via Brussels. I had been here before maybe 3-4 years back, in fact we met Ian in here, so I was familiar with this place. It’s a beautiful old banking building, high ceilings, marble pillars and the sort of lavish design touches you don’t see so much today. It is a very large pub with the large bar set back just a bit to the rear of centre, I think that it is also an island bar. Beer choice must have run to twenty beers, though we just had a breakfast and a cuppa. This must be the flagship pub of the JDW empire, I love it, if you ignore the JDW paraphernalia, fruit machines and other pap which thankfully are not to overdone here then you might not even realise you are in a Wetherspoons. Great pub and my Eggs Benedict and tea was very good and at £4.49 an absolute bargain!

The_Osprey  (149) Richmond, England | October 30, 2014
High ceilinged former bank, big focus on the bar as you walk in. Everything here is about quantity - lots of staff, lots of punters, there must be 20 cask ales on…! Like or loathe Wetherspoons, you can’t argue with that. Despite the size, the pub doesn’t lose atmosphere.

imdownthepub  (729) Banbury, England | August 1, 2013
A massive Wetherspoons in the old Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank building in The City area. Marble and gilding still show the past prosperity that were the basis for banking in this area. This is somewhat ruined by the usual Wetherspoons advertising hanging off every surface. Raucous on a Friday evening when the local office boys have spent all afternoon boozing on bubbly. There is a big island bar that is monstrously out of place. Great and tatty all at the same time.

Rasmus40  (248) Beder, Aarhus, Denmark | April 28, 2013
Big and somewhat noisy place with marble all around. Polite and efficient service. Big selection, but several casks were not good. Whether it’s because of the handling or it was poor from the start I can’t tell, but I blaim the pub. A bit expensive. Poor food including burned toast.
