I visited the one somewhere near the London Tower. Atmosphere was quite relaxing and the beer selection was reasonable.

I was surprised to see a generic place for Wetherspoons because, although the pubs have some common themes, they vary quite a lot, from the really rather nice (e.g. the White Hart in Todmorden) to the truly horrible (e.g. the Central Bar in Shepherds Bush). Itís always worth checking them out though because they do generally have a good range of beer, especially during their "festivals".

Iím a big fan of the JDW chain. While value is their raison díÍtre, they sometimes do have some great beers on tap. In particular, they put on a range of festivals each year plus special series periodically where you can find great stuff. The prices are always great; in London, the Spoonies are far and away the best-priced pints. Staff can be quite variable; they are almost always courteous but only sometimes do they know anything about the beer. I gather the food at JDW can be decent but I, regrettably, have never eaten at one - will try to remedy that in 2014. Another bonus with JDW pubs is that they are often the best option in otherwise bad areas for beer (or living). If you are the type to get hung up on aesthetics, or if you donít like rubbing shoulders with consummate commoners, then JDW pubs are not for you. If you appreciate a bit of good value and routinely solid cask ale selection, give the Spoons a go.

Stumbled across this entry at random - Josh@coattails ;).
So this is a generic rating of all spoons, and I must have been to a good few hundred (and Iím not a spoons ticker btw!).
Atmosphere is usually flat, no real local feel, lots of owd men and neíer do wells typify the clientele base.
Selection, even in the average spoons, will often wield a few ticks especially during the bi-annual fests. Only the poor ones offer the bare bones of Shabbot and Shuddles.
The value is always good, London/M25 area, central London and airports especially acquire a premium but still cheap compared to other venues in the area. Due to the cheap cost ... see atmosphere above.
Service often hit and miss, young staff, high turnover, often slow or other folks (again see clientele) will get served first and not give 2 shits about this knowing full well they have.
Overall - yeah , Spoons is Spoons, god love em, worth their place on the planet, I visit off peak as a rule when the dross factor (clientele wise) is less dangerous and the frustrating service less likely.

You can always count on JDW to deliver a few ticks, ignorant service and a cheap meal. Most places look like the McDonalds of pubs, but if McDonalds had this beer selection I might actually go there...
