Picturesque barn of a JDW. Three racks of handpumps with usually several guest ales on. Ale quality varies from OK to excellent, prices are high by JDW standards (currrently £3.10 a pint) but cheap for the area. Often busy due to the many tourist attractions around, and can feel crowded too as they pack the table in a bit tight.

With its gaudy neon sign outside you might be tempted to keep walking past this pub if you are looking for something traditional, however once inside the large grand room that this Wetherspoon is housed in is a fine opulently decorated room that would otherwise be closed to the public. The bar itself is set inside the building so is removed from the hustle and bustle that is Bakers Street station with a number of underground lines running through it (including the Metropolitan Line of course!). Itís location probably accounts for the fact that this is one of the most expensive pubs in this chain i have been to, although you are guaranteed the usual selection of rotating ales here.

The Metropolitan is a Wetherspoon pub at Baker Street station, which is served by the Metropolitan line amongst others. Itís a magnificently elegant room with painted columns and coats of arms. We thought it may once have been the Chiltern Court restaurant, made famous by John Betjeman at the start of his "Metroland" film but we were told that it was a training room for Metropolitan railway staff. Perhaps at various times it has been both ..... The beer range is rather typical of Wetherspoons, with the standards alongside some more interesting offerings. (Visited 8 August 2013).

Visited a few times, latest august 2013. Typical JDW pub, very clean and quiet, vist place. Friendly, serviceminded staff. Beers served in good condition. Easy to get to since it is placed just next to a tube station..

I like pubs in Railway stations and this is in a impressively hall, large with a lots of tables, nice leather sofas, family area, 10 real ales and free newspapers. And best off all: it opens 9.00.

Theydon_Bois  (620) The íSham, England | December 4, 2012
Typical íSpoonsí in the ground floor of the former Metropolitan Railway buildings by Baker Street tube (this was actually part of the HR department in the 80ís and 90ís). One large room with the bar centred on the right hand side as you enter. Typical wetherspoons feel in terms of punters - ie lots of old fellas on their own, office groupings, travellers - no real local feel or atmosphere. Beer choice usually involves a few guests of interest, but there are far better spoons (and of course pubs in general) for this purpose. Some 4 years on since last review and the ales are still served too cold, a common trait with Wetherspoons I find Typical íspoonsí hit and miss service also !!! I wouldnít go out of the way for the Met Bar, but if you need to meet someone in the area or are stuck for 30 minutes itís passable. I close with the buzzword of this review - "Typical" and nothing special !

Big seating area with tables and couches. Long bar but no seats at the bar. Nice good selection of draft and bottles, 3 beers I asked for were gone.

Large spacious Wetherspoons beside Baker Street Underground. Beer served in plastic glasses because of cup semi-final. Here on a Sunday morning so it was quite quiet and relaxing. 18 cask ales. Pleasant service. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

JD Wetherspoons next to Baker Street station. Inside is a huge ballroom like room which is kitted out with sofa areas and tables for eating. Clientele is families, tourists and people passing through. It gets pretty rowdy sometimes with Rugby boys and lager chavs. The vibe is always busy here though. Line up is good with about 12 pumps when I went to the 2011 beer festival, plus the usual kegged lager range and good selection of bottled beers behind the bar. Price was £2,89 per festival pint so itís the most expensive JDW in the country. Beer quality was ok-ish. One of the beers I had was on the turn which is probably inevitable with 12 pumps in a place where most people drink lager.

Big changing selection, but the highest proportion of Spooned beers since god knows when. Good value simple nosh last time I ate there. Itís either dead, or too noisy in my experience, but the sofa near the entrance is a nice place to lounge. Staff are trained monkeys, but at least theyíre trained to give you a replacement beer when you tell them your pintís crap.
