“We have been to many Lidl's in the UK and Europe on our travels they are generally much the same. The beer section tends to carry just their own brands of bargain level beers brewed by some of the larger breweries in the host country. Not really that much to get exited about but you can pick up new ratings from time to time.“

“Limited range of beers, mostly own label brewed by typical own label breweries, such as Shepherd Neame, and rarely exciting. Occasionally have offers, such as packs of Belgian beers, but these are offered randomly. Probably, along with Aldi, one of the worse chain supermarkets for getting interesting beers, and never offer local beers, only national.“

“Visited on the odd occasion over the years. Much like the nearby Dog & Fox really - a large Young’s pub / hotel in Wimbedon village. The bar area is rather more pubby than at the Dog & Fox, with a slate floor and less emphasis on armchairs and other comfy but unpubby furniture. Four or five (I forget) handpumps carry mainly Young’s & Charles Wells beers. Not much of interest on keg. Wimbledon is one of those smart areas of London that should really support plenty of interesting beer places but it fails dismally in this respect so I can’t really say there are lots of better places to drink nearby. The best beer range is in the Spoons. The pubs over by the Common - the Hand In Hand & the Crooked Billet (both also Young’s pubs) have more character and a better beer range but are apt to be rammed unless you visit at quieter times of day on quieter days of the week.“

“Visited on the odd occasion over the years. A large Young’s pub / hotel in Wimbedon village. The bar area is quite smart but not particularly pubby, perhaps reflecting the dual purpose pub-hotel function. There’s a bank of six handpumps but, like as not, you’ll just find Youngs & Charles Wells beers on offer. Meantime is about as good as it gets on keg. Wimbledon is one of those smart areas of London that should really support plenty of interesting beer places but it fails dismally in this respect so I can’t really say there are lots of better places to drink nearby.

“Occasionally pop into the branch on Blackbird Hill, Wembley to stock up on household "essentials" at rock bottom prices. It quite alarge and tidt Lidl - not all are. Mainly own brand beers (and the odd cider), although they tend to disguise this by giving them names that sound like they’re proper breweries. Prices are cheap. You’ll probably find a few ticks, for the first few visits anyway. The "craft" beer range, originally made at various marstons-owned breweries but now shifted to Shepherd Neme is serviceable but won’t set the pulse racing. But they’re obviously making down to a price point so you can’t ecpect too much.“

“Visited a shop in Camden London. A few semi interesting beers but the kew at the line was so huge that I gave up buying anything. Hopsback and Hatherwood in stock.“

“Decent tardis like Spoons hidden away a few mins stroll from Wimbledon station. Popped in on a busy Saturday evening. Security on the door. Place was busy, lots of staff on but seemed to chat more to each other than serve customers. Couple of banks of handpulls and picked up a couple of Kissingate beers kept well. A decent effort for a Spoons“

“Situated not far from Wimbledon station. Visited during the recent Spoons fest in March. Little did I know that this place is actually bigger than I realised (should of read previous reviews), and they actually hand 18+ casks on. Entered via the the "theatre end" and there was 6 casks on (1-6) which I tried, leaving reminder for myself to go here for the next spoons fest. Apart from the large amount of casks, this is still a typical spoons affair so you know what you getting, in regard to food, drinks etc. Worth visiting if in the area due to the amount of casks on offer.“

“Review based primarily on Wycombe & Reading stores. Budget supermarket offering a "budget" retail experience with "budget" service and "budget" beers. The Reading store was filthy; the High Wycombe store is newer and thus at least looks cleaner. In both cases the stock was just dumped on or near the shelves making the place look messy. There’s nowhere near enough staff meaning that you always have to queue. There’s a few of the standard pasteurised bitters from the big regionals, and a few of their own brand contract-brewed bitters. You’ll definitely get some ticks (from their own brand stuff at least) but they’re unlikely to provide you with any great pleasure. Prices are low (although the 3 for £5 offers at the main supermarkets are often cheaper) but possibly not low enough to justify a truly dismal retail experience. One to avoid beerwise, although having said that the bread and meat are actually surprisingly decent quality and certainly good value.“

“Large place with two bars. It took me a couple of visits to find out about the bar in the back, but two bars means that they have something like 15 changing cask ales, which is good. Two exits is also useful. Always something new to try and most often it is also possible to find something good. Standard Wetherspoon menu with vegetarian options and pretty fair prices on the beers. The service is quick but not too knowledgeable when it comes to the beers but they will give samples. Ok place all in all and just a short walk from Wimbledon station.“

“I had nice fish and chips here at the weekend. It is a strange layout that’s like a dog leg but you get good beer, food and service at either end.“

“Visited the Lidl in Hawkinge and in Eastbourne. The selection is ok, some own brands, some mainstream brands. Sometimes you might find special beers on offer, like when there is a special theme week. Worth a visit.“

“I used to use Lidl on occasions when we lived in Germany and I pop into our local one in the UK every so often just to see what’s about (beer and food wise). Usually disappointed with the beer selection actually, own brands and Shepherd Neame stuff seems to be the norm. Cheap enough and the chance of a new tick once in a while, but not the sort of supermarket chain that’s going to sell any ’world beaters’.“

“Lidl dobrze usytuowany przy ruchliwej drodze, ze sporym parkingiem. Kasy sporo, moze nie wszystkie czynne. Asortyment i rozmieszczenie towarow takie jak w kazdych lidlach. Moze zmienili tylko dzial z alkoholami mocnymi, zwlaszcza doszlo sporo skrzynek z francuskimi winami. Organizuja czesto festiwale piwne np oktoberfest, albo dni francuskie lub hiszpanskie gdzie mozna zaznajomic sie z lokalnymi wyrobami danych panstw. Natknalem sie na greckie piwo Mythos, wloskie Poretti i Estrelle, niestety w puszkach. Niemieckie piwa takze w puszkach, poza Perlenbacherem i czeskim Argusem“

“Similar to Aldi in that they have plenty of contract brews for their own brand ales, beers and ciders, but not quite as many. You can find some brand brews too. Shepherd Neame supply them with specials and seasonal bottles throughout the year.“

“When we called into the store in Blackbird Hill, Wembley (NW9 8SD) we found a few new beers amongst the 20 or so bottles and cans - nothing exciting (or, I suspect, top quality) but we have to keep the tickers happy. As with just about everything else here, the prices were low. (Visited 24 May 2013).“

“A large traditional looking Wetherspoon with wood paneling and soft furnishings throughout. It’s a strange building layout as it is essentially a zig zag or lightening bolt shape with two entrances and two bars at either end. Ale can be found at both bars and there’s no shortage of space inside or decoration and local information on the walls.“
