Quite a small Wetherspoon place and a bit of a goldfish bowl. The service was very good but the choice of beers was poor. We were there on the last day of the spring festival, hoping to scoop up a few last ticks, but there were no festival beers available and several of the ten casks were off.

Opposite the Marble Arch just a few doors along Edgware Road, this very small Wetherspoon pub is too small for its purpose but nevertheless packs the tourists and visitors in. Itís by no means a cheap place compared to others in the chain but might still just about represent value for the area. Thereís little to say about the pub as its a very bland decor, but good enough visit or rest for a while in and thereís plenty of decent ales available on two rows of pumps.

Fairly standard modern JD Wetherspoons pub. Exterior is like a shop front which is part of an office building. Interior is their standard set up but itís always busy so although there are TVs on and families eating itís a busy/bustling ambiance. They had 6 pumps on during the 2011 beer fest, so not the biggest range. Service was very good though as the guy actually bothered to write down what each of the 3 beers he was serving me were. Beer quality was ok and price is good for London although expensive compared to regional JDW. Theyíve also got a pretty good selection of bottled beers behind the bar.

Your basic JD Weatherspoons. Lots going on in this place: restaurant, bar, video games. Iíve only gone here during the Autumn Real Ale Festival. The place is nice enough. The beers are in good shape and the prices are fair. Definitely not my usual haunt but I donít mind going here to try the festival ales.
