Update 15/02/2014

I still pop in here now and again. It comes into it's own when the cider festival is on as they serve it all from the cellar and they have most of the range on.
I turned up here today to find one of the worst selections of ales I have seen in a Spoons. The only plus point was that the Doombore clip was turned around. One pump was unclipped. Available were Fuller's ESB & London Pride, GK Abbot and IPA, Bateman's XXXB and Exmoor Gold. I went for the Exmoor Gold which was in good nick but just isn't the attraction it was when if first arrived about 35 years a go. Rating reduced as a result of this and other disappointing visits.

Update 24/10/2012

The old staff seem to be back and the handpumps working again. I popped in for day 1 of the festival. All the pumps were going and I had two beers Everard's Terra Firma and Steenbrugge Dubbel Bruin at £1.99 a pint. They were both in good condition, but the Steenbrugge waa a bit thin, I suspect that's because they are trying to replicate an 8% Belgian Dubbel at a mere 6%.

I was mildly irritated by being served the beer in a London Pride glass and there was a single noisy young child. There was also a group of cantankerous old gits which made me feel more at home.


Previous Visits

I went in here today for the Cider Festival and something I suspected a good few weeks ago was confirmed by the manager/duty manager (there seems to have been a complete change of staff recently).

All the real ales are currently being served straight from the cask in the nearby "cellar".

Sadly the reason for this is that the handpumps are knackered, but I assume it won't continue.

They had a couple of East London Brewery beers on.


I've been going here on and off for some time. It's certainly the smallest Spoons I've been to as it only has two small areas with a corner bar. There wasn't a great selection this time, I think there was at least one of that awful brew that Spoons staff love so much "Available Soon".

It seems to have been run for a while now by a blond woman who is pleasant enough and seems to be making a decent job of it. The last half dozen or so times I've visited there always seems to be adequate levels of staff especially given the small size of the place. There only seems to be a delay when orders for coffee come in (this seems to happen in all Spoons).

The drinking of coffee in pubs should be BANNED. I would like to see Dumb and Dumber bring in a law next week to achieve this.

I don't recall ever seeing kids in here, despite a post below.

I had a pint of Brentwood Porter at £2.55 which was in good form and had a vague sort of taate of er, coffee!

I found the governor in here to be a friendly chap and there were five ales available alongside a standard draught range that were all available at reasonable prices.

There are a couple of plasma screens that were showing a muted Sky Sports feed, not that anyone was watching it.

If you're a fan of Wetherspoons you'll like this place.

Gone down hill since MY last visit. Not a very good selection of guest ales and the only reason for one star is the Fullers ESB was in good form
