Been here a few times, itís much cheaper than the Spoons at Victoria station but the decor isnít as smart. Itís quite a big place but it usually has some interesting beers on and itís a good place to pick up a festival scoop or two.
Itís a better example of a Spoons and Iíll stick my head in to have a look if passing.
íSpoons pubs are not always the most inviting places. Nor are pubs right next to railway stations. However it does usually have a pretty good beer range, better than íSpoons average. So Iíve often popped in for a couple of scoops but wouldnít linger. The íSpoons actually inside the station seems to have upped its game considerably in terms of beer range recently and is actually a rtaher nicer place to drink so iíd go for that one if I only had time for one.
Iím in shock that people are not giving this place a good score. First of all, itís a Wetherspoons. The food is as prescribed. Itís like trying to judge one McDís food over another. The pub itself has a somewhat plain feel and itís not a lot to look at from outside BUT itís right beside Victoria station and has at least ten casks on at any time. The staff are incredibly friendly and happy to talk about beer and the prices are GREAT, I had a curry with naan bread and popadoms and a pint of cask Jaipur for £6.50. Considering the location, the selection and the price. This place is a gem.
Relatively small for a Wetherspoon in such a busy location. It is a ground floor affair in a large office block building opposite Victoria Station and has entrances and exits at both ends. The bar in the middle stocks two rows of real ales but is not long enough for when the workers have finished and flock here for a drink. Has lots of high stool tables to pack more people in.
