A bright and cheerful Ďspoons on Holborn. Thereís a column at the front with leafy fronds creeping up to the ceiling - presumably a representation of the eponymous oak tree (where Charles II hid from the Roundheads during the English Civil War). There are about twelve casks and when we visited on the last day of the spring festival there was a reasonable range left.

Ground floor and a lower level bar help to keep the waiting down. Basic Wetherspoons really, usual high and low points with good prices and selection of beers, never enough staff, etc, etc. Used it a few times over the last few years and although it is not really a place I seek out when in London I am happy enough to pop in and see whatís on cask if I am passing by.

Pretty standard Spoons, more wooden than most. Pricey by their norms.

(Visited Nov 2013) Quite a good Wetherspoons in the Holborn Area. Spacious with lots of seating. Service is friendly and efficient. Beers range includes the usual suspects, but usually with four or five interesting guests. Food is the usual with JDW, decent pub food, hardly exciting, but flawless and at very good prices. Well worth a visit if youíre in the area.

One of the better Wetherspoons in the area for beer choice, especially when their bi-annual festival is on. A modern functional building [ie. not ornate like Crosse Keys at Bank!]. Toilet downstairs where I see there is another big bar but has less ales on than main bar upstairs.

Big Spoons on the main drag between Holborn and Chancery Lane. For such a big gaff it has a bleeding annoying entrance which funnels people in to a narrow pinch point trying to get to the bsr. Once in the srvuce is decent and the beers, well not the best Spoons for condition, but certainly better than some. Worth a pop in.

A strong showing in the Wetherspoons chain. Friendly, good service. Worth going to if you are in the area.

A split level Wetherspoon with a very cosy carpeted and bookshelf heavy ground floor including a nice fireplace area as you walk in. Downstairs it is much more impersonal less convivial. The usual menus and set of ales on a couple of rows of pumps apply.

One of the better Spoons in London in terms of both range and ambiance. Located in what is largely a business district the clientele is ordinarily folks of this pursuasion, you donít tend to get the íowdí men and penny shufflers in this JDW compared to many others, the occasional group of stray tourists breaks the monotony of the office worker.
The place is fairly sizeable, bar on the left as you enter, lots of tables, stools, chairs at different levels and a wall of bookcases running around the venue.
There is a beer garden at the rear so a little natural light coming in from the back, though like most Spoons the place is still a tad on the dark side.
There is also an underground cellar bar but Iíve never ventured down there.
Service is decent for a spoons and the selection is usually pretty good too with 5 or 6 guests on in addition to the regulars.
Definately one of the best Spoons in the smoke.

A rather ordinary Wetherspoon in the heart of Holborn. Different seating areas, quite cosy and relaxing before noon. Well kept ales. From the real ale festival menu we sampled eight beers nicely served in one-third pint glasses. Polite service. Short walking distance to other beer destinations like Craft Beer & Co.
