Svesse  (214) Hšsselby, Sweden | December 18, 2013
(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. (visited 01.11.2012).

A JDW pub located in a convenient patch along High Holborn. The pubís massive even before you account for the downstairs bar. Thereís usually 8 casks of various quality on, plus the usual suspects on keg. Prices are good, certainly better value than the increasingly dear Sam Smiths pubs of central London. The ambiance is strange: thereís lots of heavy wood, low lights, and books-by-the-metre stacked on the shelves. Overall, considering the good prices, thereís worse places to end up for a quick pint.

Excellent value for the area and generally well-kept ales. The usual good value JDW food. A surprisingly characterful pub for its size and location, with several distinctively different areas inside, including a cellar bar.

A JDW, styled somewhere between American truck stop and old, wood-paneled library. An interesting place. There is a quite expansive ícellar barí as well, so make sure you donít miss that. About 12 casks on offer plus the typical Spoons kegs and bottles. And the typical food. Prices are on the upper range for Spoonies (2.70 quid per pint of cask beer). Nice enough ambiance. Worth a quick visit.
