The ever expanding chain, Britainís biggest in terms of pubs is well known for its changing national range ales in most of its pubs as well as allowing managers to source locally produced craft for their outlets - backed up biannual beer festivals that include a plethora of ales you can only exclusively drink during these periods. Itís hard not to notice these pubs if you travel around the UK with any frequency, and whilst they come in for a lot of understandable stick for changing the landscape of how and where people drink in pubs in the various towns and cities they enter, they are consistent the length and breadth of the country and you know what youíll get - well kept ale at a competitive price and a decent choice from a wide range of breweries.

Rating valid for Glasgow Central railway station ie Sir John Moore, visited today with my wife when she didnít want walk the other 30 min to the Brewdog par. 15 pumps, 6 hand pumps and 50 odd bottles. During this week they had real cider festival since the cider were served out of tetra packs (big ones) but my wife didnít bother. Clean, nice staff and fast staff. Centrally location just 5 min away from the station.

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.
