Usual Witherspoon pub, nothing special inside, lots of wood. Very comfortable seating to the left as you come in, almost booth like. Small front area almost a garden, behind doors, as a smoking area. This faces out onto the main road so you have a choice of breathing in smoke or petrol fumes. Don't think only smokers can use it, it could be used for train spotters as it faces Raynes Park station. Plenty of ales available. Friendly staff as well.

I was getting quite pessimistic about this place as I approached it from the station as it was clearly the ground floor of a faceless modern office block. Happily once inside it wasn't the disaster that some Office conversions are but quite a pleasant light and airy room. It got even better when I checked the beer range as there were several options from local breweries, but sadly I only had time for one pint. I went for the Clarence & Fredrick's IPA (£2.45) which had been something of a shambles a few weeks earlier at the Coronet in Holloway Road. This time it was in very good nick and has restored faith in this brewery as this was the first excellent pint I have had from them. I would return here if in the area to check out the locale beers.

A fairly standard Wetherspoons situated near Raynes Park Station named after the landowner whose name is synonymous with the area.

The interior consists of a large, spacious, mostly open plan room that stretches through what was presumably a couple of former retail units. There is also an extended section at the rear for additional seating although during the day it seems to be designated as a family dining area. The low ceilings make it a bit claustrophobic although some effort has been made to make it more than just a bare expanse. The overall décor is pretty bland and nondescript beyond a personalized mirror behind the bar, some old local pictures the usual ‘Spoons history snippets and, to be honest, Raynes Park is hardly an area steeped with interest.

There are 9 hand pumps dispensing a decent number of guest beers that usually includes a local oofering. Service has always been efficient and I didn’t get the overwhelming feeling of society dregs that I was expect with a Saturday night Wetherspoon crowd.

Like many ‘Spoons, what it lacks character it makes up for by way of the cheap and varied beers plus budget food and in a relatively pub free area, it more than holds enough interest for a visit.

This place is certainly one of the better Wetherspoons that I have ventured into and I even thought that the staff were polite and friendly. My pint of Guinness was good and very reasonably priced and I would return if in the area, even though I’m not the biggest JDW fan.

As Wetherspoons go, this place is good. Clean and tidy, although usually a small range of say 5 non regulars plus the staples, but this results in good condition as its rarely rammed. Our regular Monday or Tuesday boys night, its pretty good for a Spoons. Unusually it's purpose built, so not matured enough yet character wise but has some interesting old photos of the area, and probably the best bet for a decent pint in Raynes Park.

One of the better Wetherspoons in my opinion. And, like most ‘spoons, it is pretty busy all day. It is a newish purpose-built pub so has nothing in the way of pub character (i.e. even less than most other Wetherspoons have). Food is like all other ‘spoons. But they invariably have some decent ale on at (of course) pretty decent prices. I had Newman’s Wolver’s Ale; Hyde’s Heads & Tails; and Hogsback Winter Warmer last night, and enjoyed them. I do have one small moan though – of the four pumps dedicated to guest ales, by 9.30 two of them had ale clips on them but were advertised as “available soon”. It strikes me that beer pumps should be for the purpose of dispensing ale, not as advertising boards for forthcoming ales – the board on the wall is for that sort of thing. It would be much better to have another ale ready to put on when one is finished. Nonetheless it’s still a good ‘spoons.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Edward Rayne (JD Wetherspoon)

A bit of a "pub in a box" 'spoons, but the atmosphere and clientele seemed fine on my late-afternoon vist. Decent selection of beers from the ongoing real ale festival too. Handy for Raynes Park station too.
