The Moon & Stars is a Wetherspoons that is next door but one to another Wetherspoons.
This one looks like it it housed in a 30s built building but i may be wrong.
Once inside there is an oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the bar is on the right side,there is seating on the left side which is divided by pillars,the rear area is up some steps,the seating is normal tables and chairs and the room is carpeted.
There was a bank of pumps to the front which had waiting to condition signs on i walked further down to room to find two more banks of pumps one with guest beers and the other with Spoons regulars,i had a drink of Caledonian Golden XPA which went down well,the other beers noted were Harvistoun Schiehallion,Hogs Back TEA,Cotleigh Osprey,there were others i failed to note.
I quite liked this Wetherspoons,though it was almost empty on my pre 11am Thursday morning visit.

Visit November 2014
I still can't say how many pumps there are here!
There is a bank of six as you enter then there is a group further down the bar with the boring stuff. Was it 3 or 4 pumps?
The standard guest price here is £1.99 a pint, the only one I've coma across in Greater London at that price.
It's a pretty basic Spoons but the £1.99 Ringwood beer I tried was good.

Visit March 2012

According to Steve C below this pub has NINE handpumps. Was he seeing double as I could only see SIX, I will have to return to see who is correct! I wasn't seeing double as I arrived here at 10:30 on stage 1 of a Spoon's festival crawl.

It's not the nicest of JDW conversions as noted previously. It's rather dark, but the small typical JDW alcoves along one side are quite pleasant. It's in the 2012 GBG so the Elgood's beer was as wll kept as I would expect. Romford has always been a rubbish area for pubs, so I'm not surprised this is GBG listed. It was OK while empty in the early morning but can imagine it being rammed on a weekend evening, especially given the lack of competition.

I found it strange that this place is a couple of doors away from the World’s Inn which is also a Wetherspoons. What was even stranger was that this place was busier even though the beer quality and décor are inferior to the World’s Inn. I counted nine hand pumps with one guest active and two ‘coming soon’. The service was quick, but the Guinness was barely drinkable.

It is a dimly lit pub with booths running along the left hand wall of the pub and the bar runs along the right hand wall. Large pillars down the centre of the pub make it feel much thinner than it actually is and there is a large ‘family area’ in a raised section at the back of the pub. There is also a plasma screen that was showing muted news feed just before this raised area. The stairs to the toilets are at the front of the pub and they are quite a trek to get to.

There is some outside seating on the high street out the front where there are council no drinking signs everywhere and the pub has signs by the entrance saying that no glasses must be taken outside. All of the tables were pilled high with empties and all of the tables were taken with people drinking.

I would walk past if I was in the area again.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Moon & Stars (JD Wetherspoon)

Rather dark and uninspiring 'spoons, with a rather dull selection of real ales (none local) including an OK pint of Wadworth Horizon. Surprisingly, the new Lloyds No. 1 just two doors down the road (The World's Inn) has a more interesting choice.

Dark dingy and very smokey.Beer selection pretty poor but this can be pot luck.

Good selection of beers. Pleasant atmosphere, food good. Everything reasonably priced. Look no further in Romford.
