Used to use this pub a lot when I was an Arsenal supporter and could afford a ticket.Giant pub with spooky acoustics.Totally lacking the pub atmosphere even while quite busy.Tried one of the fest beers Orkney -celebration but still dross from what should be a good brewer

A late Art-Deco cinema built in 1940 as the Savoy, renamed the ABC in 1962 and the Coronet in 1979. Closed as a cinema in 1983 and converted into a ‘spoons in 1996 - still haunted by the ghosts of Kia-Ora and 11”-Westler’s.
Not visited before, our group undertaking a mid-week stopover for a quick pint on our walk, it’s cavernous inside and easy to guess that this was once a place of entertainment, though how much finery is original, I couldn’t say; the Art-Deco-style side booths obviously aren’t original. There’s some film-themed memorabilia, such as framed old film posters. Otherwise, there are all the ‘spoons trademarks, with an outdoor patio to the rear.
This was never really going to be anything other than a day on the Pride as I couldn’t see anything else for bar hogs, just the Abbot.
Come early evening, the staff were rushed off their feet and highly reluctant to change the barrels when empty: “It’ll take 20 minutes!” (no, it won’t), so they were taking payment then in effect dishing up whatever was still available – another problem with the new ‘spoons policy of pre-payment.
Wetherspoons are good for cheap decent beer and a tasty fry-up, but I’m more of a traditionalist, so won’t be returning, not least because I’ve had better experiences in other branches.

A large cinema conversion,you enter into the bar area which has a low roof,but the pub opens out at the rear to a vast space where the stage and screen would have been.There are seating booths around the periphery and a raised section in the middle of the stalls area.Sadly neither the balcony nor the dress circle are used ,so the conversion has been functional but not inspiring.The pub was proving popular with parents and children,several out of control and noisy which detracted from the atmosphere.
The bar was understaffed and when I eventually got my pint it was well short.There was a lot of uncollected plates and glasses on the tables too.
There are three ranks of 6 handpumps ,but with two "available soon",several regulars (GK IPA,Abbott,Ruddles Best,Doom Bar,London Pride) doubled up ,that left a guest offering on my trip of Adnams Broadside and Ghost Ship,Windsor & Eton Lumberjack,Southwark LPA,Twickenham Spring Ale,Cronx Chilli Porter and Yallah Mild (indistict like most Cronx ales).
It's in the 2018 GBG,but probably on the basis of quantity rather than quality of real ale.Spoon's can have many faults and this one had quite a few,but given a lot of local pubs are real ale free zones,I can see why you may want to frequent this one.
