Not sure I can say anything different about this Spoons, pretty typical. Quiet when I visited, I can imagine it would be pretty busy later in the day.

Visited on a Wednesday night in November 2015. Itís a pretty run-down Spoons on Leicester Square, decor is tired, itís was pretty busy on this Wednesday night but managed to get a table. Beer range was OK with a couple of interesting cask beers plus the usual range. Handy for a cheap drink in a tourist hotspot but thatís its only redeeming feature

Visited several times, on our visits to London. Typical JDW deco, most times the beers are served in OK condition. The staff is not the most serviceminded, clearly this pub is placed in a touristed area. Can at times be very crowded and busy. Passing it in the daytime, worth a look, but not to travel for :-)..

The Moon Under Water is smack-bang in the centre of Tourist Town, London. It is situated right on Leicester square next door to the Odeon Cinema. It is a long, yet narrow bar filled mostly with tourists. They offer 10 cask ales, with 3ish seasonal offerings (including the Spoons Collaborations) as well as usual Wetherspoons keg and bottle line-up. Nothing really sets it apart from other spoons, except for the location. You are better off walking into Soho proper for a half or 2 at the Lyric.

This Wetherspoon is way too small for its prime location in the tourist draw of Leicester Square, and it stops serving food earlier than most of the others in the chain as it becomes impossible for the staff to get around the night drinkers after a while who are pretty much forced to stand and take up what little aisle space exists. Itís one of the more expensive outlets for this chain but it is to be expected, but you can get a good choice of ales over two sets of ale pumps if you can reach the bar. The decoration isnít up to much, itís a bit like a seaside Punch & Judy tent but there are a few hints to the cinema industry that hosts so many premiers in this square, and its worth using the toilet to see the movie posters on the wall in the corridor at the very back of the small ground floor space the pub exists in.

One of the original central London spoons which Iíve managed to avoid for a few years now. Souless - passing tourists, the odd office worker, people killing 20 minutes before gigs and shows in the area. Pretty basic guest range beyond the Ruddles/Abbot tosh. Split level with an upstairs area. No thanks - no need but .... Leicester Sq ainít great for pubs so if you are in a rush and need a quick pint you may as well - which is what has happened to me in the past! Higher priced zone 1 spoons.

Big but not especially nice Spoons right on Leicester Square. Far nicer pubs within a short walk.

A íclassicí JDW pub; that is, kind of grubby. Although, there is a nice patio right on the square. Inside it smells like greasy food. The ceilings are low - too low. Absolutely no natural light inside. You getting the picture? Itís not a place to lift your spirits. Six cask lines, the rest are macro kegs. There are much better pubs in this area.
