As you enter this place from Gladstone Road it doesn't seem that different to any other Spoons shop conversion until you realise that one side of the bar across the room as you enter is at the end of another huge area that leads to the other entrance in Russell Road where there is a second bar.

Of the 18 pumps I counted 9 festival ales plus remember seeing a Dark Star Original and Dorking Red Ale. This was only on day 2 of the festival, so presumably later there will be even more of them on.
The whole place seemed well run, and busy for a mid afternoon. I tried seven of the festival ales, all were in good condition and were priced at £2.49. This is up to 50p a pint more than other Spoons are charging, the most common price being £2.15 or £2.29, however it's probably worth it just to get the huge selection.

I've been to quite a few GBG listed Spoons that this place puts to shame. I would definitely return.

A deceptively large Wetherspoons named after the ancient name for Wimbledon with entrances in 2 streets and almost a bus journey between them. For the most part it is a pretty formulaic ‘Spoons although with 18 hand pumps the capacity for ales is well above the norm. I may have been spoilt on my visit as there was a LocAle Festival going on doubled with a “meet the brewer” session so the extraordinary number of ales available may have been somewhat inflated from the normal stock.

There are separate bars at both ends of the pub but with a couple of sharp turns you cannot see all the way through to the other end. The central area is a bit on the dark and claustrophobic side thanks to the low ceilings and lack of natural light.

Even when it is at its busiest it would be hard not to find a table such is the size of the place and, taking advantage of the curry club, I was surprised that the food arrived so quickly given that it was presumably busier than normal due to the festival events.

I didn’t encounter any of the usual unsavoury clientele (that is not to say it doesn’t attract any) and, as ‘Spoons go it was certainly above average although I would like to see what is on offer on a nomal day.
