Typical ´Spoons. Usually the sister pub inside the station has a better selection.

Visited late August 2016 in the afternoon, was pretty quiet with a just a few builders having late morning fry ups. Pretty good selection across cask, and the couple I had were in pretty decent condition, staff friendly and efficient. Plenty of power points scattered around at the tables so useful destination for those travellers transitioning between train/tube/coach station, to charge up devices while supping a pint, also had the usual free JDW wifi. All in all a pretty above average spoons for selection, so worth stopping by if in the area.

Basic Wetherspoons with nothing unusual to stand it apart from many others in the chain. Visited on 17th Dec 2016 (Saturday evening), Beer selection and quality were both fine, as was the ’deep fat fried food’ we shared. Staff friendly enough, mixed clientele, age and group size: typical cross section of society really. Would visit again, but it’s not a destination pub for true ’beer hunters’ even if I did pick up two new rates.

Slightly lacking in charm, even by Spoons standards. Still, the staff are friendly enough and the beer range is decent. Sadly, most of the cask ales I tried were not in the best of condition.

Poorly kept beer on my visit, much better off in the station.

Been here a few times, it’s much cheaper than the Spoons at Victoria station but the decor isn’t as smart. It’s quite a big place but it usually has some interesting beers on and it’s a good place to pick up a festival scoop or two. It’s a better example of a Spoons and I’ll stick my head in to have a look if passing.

Quite nice and cosy JDW next to Victoria station (and our hotel). Good place for a breakfast and couple of pints. Good selection of rotating casks. Worth a visit if nearby.

Good location across the road from Victoria Station. A worthy stop during the Spoon beer fests as with 10 handpulls there’s usually a good chance to pick up ticks.

Surprisingly good selection of local ales. Bargain prices are offset by the not terribly nice ambience.

’Spoons 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 ’Spoons average. So I’ve often popped in for a couple of scoops but wouldn’t linger. The ’Spoons actually inside the station seems to have upped its game considerably in terms of beer range recently and is actually a rather nicer place to drink so I’d go for that one if I only had time for one.
