28th March 2015. Bog standard, modern Spoons above the concourse inside the station. Really glad I read the reviews on here before I went though: the second bar area round the back (completely hidden from the front) had a lot better selection of cask beers to the front bar and I would never had ventured further inside without the knowledge. Visited on a Saturday afternoon during a beer festival.
Have visited a couple of times during the current Wetherspoons festival since my commute can take me through Victoria Station. Early evening it can be difficult to find a free seat. Service has been prompt and pleasant. One helpful feature worth noting is that there are screens showing the train departure times, and indicating any delays. Quite a reasonable selection outside of the Wetherspoons twice yearly festivals, sometimes including a couple of beers from newer London breweries.
Well. To be fair it is mostly tourists (like me) that are waiting for the train here. But you can surely get some ticks here. Especially with that festival pumps on. Well I think they do have a festival 365 days a year.
A very well located Spoons outpost right in the centre of Victoria Station. Great location so expect it to be fairly busy at anytime of day. Even so there seems to be less riff raff here than ay the nearby Willow Walk Spoons. This place has improved greatly since the last refurb. The now offer a choice of 10 cask ales from the 2 adjacent bar areas. This makes it quite a good option for the various beer fest Spoons have. Yes it is probably one of the most expensive Wetherspoons out there, but that still makes it cheaper than most central London pubs! If you are at Victoria station this is the pub for you.

If you are at Victory station step in for new tick, otherwise not worthy for special visit.
Situated on the concourse, upstairs between platforms 8 and 9 this recently refurbished Spoons is handy.
Beer quality has dipped a bit recently as has the range, it’s location makes it handy and probably a better option than the Willow Walk over the road.
Not the best Spoons have to offer, not the worst and if you’ve got a few mins spare for a swift drink you might just find something exciting, then again maybe not!
Used to be a place I’d just go for a fee piss if I was in Victoria Statation with a cursory glance at the substandard (for Spoons) range to see if there was a winner. However, lst time I was in it was much improved. Plenty of new beers for me, most of the pumps devoted to festival beers. And it seemed much more spick and span than it used to be. Definitely worth a visit if that wasn’t a flash in the pan.
