Large Wetherspoons. Floors go up and down. Gas fire. Helpful stafff. Food was pretty good. Nice choice of cask ales. Pretty typical Wetherspoons. Meaning pretty darn good place for food and beer.

A fairly standard Spoons kitted out in the regulation wood, carpet and ranks of tables style. Thereís a second bar downstairs that I think may be open only at busier times. Iím not sure there are different beers on offer down there. They have 12 handpumps upstairs with a few being the Spoons standards. Iíve generally only visited during festivals and Iíve found this one of the better central London Spoons for playing festival bingo. Coupled with the Shakespeares Head branch a short walk away you can often bag a good haul of festival beers in quick time. Worth a look at non-festival times too though.

Big place in Holborn. Big lace with a lot of people. Some new beers, and with a decent amosphere.

Visited august 2014, on a beery trip around Holborn area. Traditionel JDW pub, cosy deco, friendly and serviceminded staff. Good beer range, served in good condition. A very quiet pub, family friendly, and for sure worth a stop being in the area.

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 bar. Once in the service is decent and the beers, well not the best Spoons for condition, but certainly better than some. Worth a pop in.
