The Crosse Keys is the Spoons which has the rep. Whilst is has the better range of beers this place for me has got beat it in terms of the building. Most impressive Spoons Iíve been to in London. Can be super busy though.

Being half way between Fleet Street and Old Holborn it features on my regular London pub crawl path. Most likely my favourite Spoons in London: a vast open plan pub with a balcony and throne at one end, toilets underground. Well appointed and I love the ceiling. Often very quiet on my visits which are usually mid-day on weekends. Bog standard Spoons food and a varied choice of cask ales on my stops. Staff pleasant and swift, but as I said earlier often quiet.

If thereís one reason to visit tap JDW itís the location. Located just behind the Royal Courts of Justice, the LSE and The Fullers Old Bank of England, itís an architectural beauty. High ceilings, grand windows and beautiful carvings, itís worth the crowds of barristers for it. Often parts closed or reserved but worth going to look and marvel.

An amazing building, one of the more impressive Spoons Iíve visted in that sense. Beer selection not always great however and I once had to argue with a staff member over a duff pint before he eventually agreed to replace it, after consultation with colleagues. Worth a look if youíre in the area for the building alone. Occasionally closed on the weekends for private funtions.

A conversion of a former bank that has plenty of grandeur about it including high ceilings and tall large windows. Thereís also a maze of more intimate open rooms on the upper level at the back of the building although the main hall has plenty of space, it can get busy though as eating here is popular. Thereís a couple of rows of ale pumps and sports are shown on the big screen if they are available for show. This is an expensive Wetherspoon pub compared to some of its other outlets.

A nice old building but amongst the worst of the JDW chains in London for choice of guest beers.

Certainly one of the better spoons in London. Cleaner, brighter - not just the one window at the front, and a younger, cleaner crowd. Not being ageist here but you donít really get the OMD (old man drinker) one to a table pint of Ruddles (cheaper than turning the heating on at home) club! Decent enough range for a spoons also. Service not bad to be fair as itís usually been 5/6pm when Iíve visited and fairly busy with local office workers. Worth popping by if in the area.

We sampled seven festival beers here at a drinking session together with a traditional English breakfast. Well kept, clean, and huge Wetherspoon pub, located near Fleet Street. Polite service. Very relaxing before noon. During a week in London Finn and I visited 15 Wetherspoons and managed 43 festival ales (plus 2 ciders). Knights Templar was one of the best, both for selection and drinking atmosphere (JDWs real-ale festival, 01.11.2012).

I canít believe I had never heard anyone mention this place before yesterday - itís easily one of the top three Spoonies in London. They have 12 casks and a handful of kegs. Pints are a little cheaper than most some other central London Spoons. The venue is an old bank, kind of similar to the Crosse Keys in itís sprawling space and high ceilings. Well worth a visit.
